Last Wednesday afternoon, November 30th, the Cloud County Community College’s drama department presented a 70-minute presentation of Macbeth to all of Hanover’s high school students.  It was a rendition of the original play and gave our students a taste of cultural that is seldom seen unless you travel to the productions.  I’d like to thank Hanover’s Language Arts/Forensics teacher, Mary Strnad for organizing the event.  And since we are talking about fine arts, don’t forget to attend the Hanover Schools Christmas Music concert at 7:00pm Thursday, December 8th in the Hanover gymnasium.

We would like to encourage all parents to monitor your student’s progress on electronic School Grade Reporter “Goedustar”.  There are less than two weeks left in the first semester giving the students little time of time to improve his or her grade.  Our 1st semester ends on a half of day of attendance on December 21st.  7-12th grade finals will be scheduled by the teacher on any day between December 19th and December 21st.  Please let us know at the school if there is anything we can do to assist you with your student’s education.

Due to changing weather conditions, there is always the possibility that classes may have to be dismissed early or cancelled for the day.  If school is cancelled or dismissed early you will be notified by our EZ School Message automated parent notification system, which will deliver a phone call, text message or e-mail supplied by parents/guardians for this purpose. If
