Every member of the high school can share in the practice of democracy. The Skip Bean Democratic Citizen award acknowledges those who contribute every day to this democratic process. Please write a short paragraph about why your nominee deserves the Skip Bean Democratic Citizen Award.”
(e) To be responsible for the Staff Member of the Month Award
i. The award is described as follows: “We share everyday at Hanover High School with our staff members. While they are paid as administrators or teachers, many staff members go above and beyond by staying after class, sponsoring clubs, raising class money, bringing us food or simply making us smile. As students, we receive thanks for the work we dedicate to class through quarterly reports, honor roll and class day, yet staff members receive little formal recognition for their work. If you believe one of our staff members deserves extra recognition this month, please write a short paragraph describing why he or she deserves to be recognized as an outstanding member of our staff.
(f) To make sure that the school-wide Martin Luther King Day Assembly gets organized and occurs sometime in January. The committee could organize the assembly themselves, or find or create another group to do this.
(g) To be responsible for reading this statement on September 11th every year over the PA system, which would be followed by a moment of silence.
i. “_______ years ago, hijacked planes were crashed into the World Trade Centers in New York City, the Pentagon outside Washington D.C. and a field in Pennsylvania. Today we remember those who died, those who risked their lives to save others and the families who were affected. Please take this moment to remember the events of September 11, 2001.”
