HHS Model UN had a productive weekend in Cambridge, attending the MIT simulation of the UN.  All of our delegates did an admirable job of representing Hanover High School at a conference attended by students  from China, South Korea, Colombia, and many different US states.


Words of congratulation are in order for the following students:


Clare Abbatiello won the award for best position paper in the Security Council.  This is particularly impressive as most schools assign their most experienced delegates to this committee.


Shira Hoffer won the Outstanding Delegate award for her work in the World Health Organization.


Elizabeth Napier won an honorable mention for her representation of Caesar Rodney in the historical committee.


Are you a high school student, or know one, who wants to work on trails and have fun in the outdoors this summer? If so, come join the Upper Valley High School Trail Corps this summer .  Applications due May 1. Amazing informational video and  application can be found at www.uvtrails.org.




The HHS Math Department would like to thank the Co-op Service Center and Summit Distributing for nominating HHS for an ExxonMobil Educational Alliance grant.  HHS was awarded the grant in the amount of $500.  


With the five snow days we have had, the last day of school is currently June 23.   Please note that Math exams will be given on June 23.  School will end at 3:00 on that day.  Any student unable to take their math exam on June 23 will need to schedule their exam for one of the summer exam dates in July or August.  If there is another snow day the math exams will be on June 26.


Are you interested in attending Medical School?  Wonder what is involved in becoming a surgeon?  Come meet with students from the Association for Women in Surgery at Dartmouth Medical School during Activity Period on Friday, March 3 in room 227.  See Mrs. King or Mr. Hermanson for more information.


Do you have fleece, blankets, comforters and/or flannel sheets  (full size or larger) that you no longer need?  The March Intensive that is working with the Lutheran Church to make quilts for disaster relief is in desperate need of these items to use as filler for the quilts.  We are also looking for lengths of new cotton fabric for use in backing.


You may drop items off at the high school or contact Jeanine King (jeanine.king@dresden.us) to arrange for pick up. ____________________________________________________________________________
