Reminder, there is NO SCHOOL Monday, October 12th. BUT, that doesn’t mean we’re not already thinking about this coming week nor the next.

Halloween Bash

The P.TA. will be hosting the Halloween Bash on the 23rd of October.  This event is open to the students of Hanover Highlands and their families.  All students must be accompanied by a parent/guardian throughout the event.  Parents may not drop-off their children at the event.  Due to the overwhelming attendance at this event, the event is only open to students and their families.  If you have questions about the event please contact one of our P.T.A. board members.

Outdoor Recess

Our students enjoy outdoor recess during their lunch hour.  The temperature has dropped and we have seen many students without a jacket or sweatshirt.   Please make sure that students have clothing that is appropriate, so they can enjoy outdoor activities with their classmates.

Recently, Mr. V stumbled across a classmate who has been coming to Hanover on a weekly basis. Tessa, a four year old beautiful four legged friend, has been joining and rotating amongst the Hanover Highlands ID classrooms on a weekly basis. She comes in and helps take part in various activities in the different classrooms. Today, the students in Mrs. Pullins’ classroom were reading stories to her. Needless to say, the children love learning with Tessa. She is a great friend!

Today, the students of Hanover Highlands were lucky enough to have an interactive assembly. Ms. Frischolz was able to bring in Mr. Steve Harpster. From his bio on “Steve Harpster has illustrated over 100 books for kids. He now travels all over the country and does online visits all over the world teaching kids how to draw using numbers and letters. Harpster wants to show kids they have the power to draw, create, and imagine their own worlds and stories.” The students, staff and even a few parents enjoyed learning how to make numbers and letters come alive – literally, and turn them into monsters, chefs and various other characters!
