Recently, the Hanover Highlands community put forth some effort and energy to spread and help those in need within our slightly larger community. In recognition of our efforts, let us share a thank you letter!
Dear Hanover Highlands Families,
There are several movements underway to have students walk out of schools to force Congress to enact new gun control legislation.
While we applaud a child’s desire to make a difference and take a stand for what they believe in, we cannot let the students walk out of the schools on this day.
We agree that the safety of children should be a top priority for our nation. It is because of our commitment to student safety, that we cannot allow children to leave the school during the school day without adult supervision. Our staff members will be inside the building, supervising children, and will not participate in any of these walkouts.
We are asking for your support in communicating with your children, as I know we share the same goal of keeping our children safe.
As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you for working with us to support our children.
Estimadas familias de Hanover Highlands School,
Hay varios movimientos en marcha para que los estudiantes salgan de las escuelas con el propósito de obligar al Congreso a promulgar nuevas leyes de control de armas.
Si bien aplaudimos el deseo de los niños en hacer la diferencia y defender lo que ellos creen, no podemos permitir que los estudiantes salgan de las escuelas en este día.
Estamos de acuerdo en que la seguridad de los niños debe ser una prioridad para nuestra nación. Es debido a nuestro compromiso con la seguridad de los estudiantes que no podemos permitir que los niños abandonen la escuela durante el día escolar sin la supervisión de un adulto. Los miembros de nuestro personal estarán dentro del edificio, supervisando a los niños, y no participarán en ninguna de estas manifestaciones.
Estamos pidiendo su apoyo en comunicarle esta decisión a sus hijos/as, ya que me consta que compartimos el mismo objetivo de mantener seguros a nuestros niños.
Como siempre, no dude en ponerse en contacto conmigo. Gracias por trabajar con nosotros para apoyar a nuestros niños.
Don’t forget… For anyone interested in ordering the Earth Day is Every Day t-shirts, all orders are due tomorrow – FEBRUARY 21st!

Each year the Department of Language and Culture, along with the Schaumburg Park District, presents a Multicultural Event. This event takes place at the Community Recreation Center and showcases the diversity represented by the students of District 54.
Preparations are already under way for this year’s event, which will take place on Saturday, April 14. We look forward to seeing many of the cultures in District 54 represented and are looking for students, or groups of students, who would like to perform.
If your child is interested in performing, please visit the Department of Language and Culture homepage for details and complete the Performance Interest Form by February 9. If you are unable to complete the electronic form, paper forms can be picked up in your school office.
We are excited to host a Math Escape Room Night for our families. The event will take place on February 21st at 6:00. Families will attempt to solve math problems to escape their room to move onto another room. Try to beat the clock and escape all four rooms in less than an hour. The event will begin promptly at 6:00. Families that arrive after 6:00 will not be able to participate, as this is a timed event
Recently we have seen students arrive prior to morning supervision begins. Morning supervision by school staff begins at 8:25 a.m. We are asking that students not arrive prior to that without parent supervision. We want to ensure the safety of all of our students.
