Moderator's Welcome to School 2019-20
Hello everyone and welcome back to Hanover High! I hope you all had wonderful summers! I know that it is the first day of school so many of you are looking back on summer and wishing it hadn’t gone by so quickly. But there is so much to look forward to this year at HHS! Whether it’s crushing it during a soccer game or going to acapellooza to see the a capella groups perform in the spring, there is so much to do at HHS in addition to the amazing academics. So as we all move into new grades, I have just a few words of advice for you.
Our school mission statement is hearts, minds, and voices, and I challenge all of you - but especially the freshmen - to embrace this mission statement this year. Use your hearts to make new friends- not just within your grade, but also with upperclassmen and teachers. Become friends with the wonderful people working in the caf and thank the custodians for their hard work. Use your minds to challenge yourselves academically without taking too on too much work. You aren’t here just to get A’s, you are here to learn from your classes and from your extracurriculars. Use your voices to speak up for what you believe in, and remember that you are always welcome to come to Council if you ever have anything to say.
I think the best advice I can give you all is to do what you enjoy, not what you think others want you to do. Try out for a new sports team! Join a new club! Audition for an a capella group! Don’t just do things because you think some college wants to see them. Do them because you truly want to. You get to choose how you spend these four years of high school- I encourage you all to choose well and to have fun!
