What's New!


You are invited to attend a informational meeting for parents about the All Night Substance Free Graduation Party, Interfaith Baccalaureate Services and Christmas Mystery on Monday, November 14th,  at 6:00 pm in the Hanover High School Library. Parents are responsible for planning these events.

Class of 2017 All Night Party is an all-night, fun-filled, substance-free celebration for Hanover High School graduates. This is the 33rd year for this annual substance free graduation celebration. Student attendance at the all night party each year averages between 96-98% of the graduating class. 

The Annual Interfaith Baccalaureate Service is parent sponsored and parent run.  In celebration of Graduation, a committee of parents and students organizes the service at Rollins Chapel.  Seniors and their parents are invited to help plan and participate.  The candle lighting ceremony is for people of all faiths, with or without formal religious affiliation.

The Christmas Mystery is one of the oldest consecutive choral reenactments of the Nativity in New England, and this year is the 100th anniversary. The Mystery is a community tradition open to all seniors, regardless of musical ability. Fathers of Angels and Shepherds are invited to participate as elder shepherds.  This is organized by parents.

Dear Parents,

For forty eight years, Hanover High School parents have organized the Holiday Dance.  The Dance gives students the opportunity to dress up and socialize with their friends during the holiday season.  This year’s Holiday Dance will be held on Saturday, December 17, 2016 from 8:30pm-11:30pm in Alumni Hall at the Hopkins Center at Dartmouth College.

Students will receive their invitations to the Holiday Dance in the mail the week of Thanksgiving.  Any student who is a part of the junior, senior or first year post-graduate classes, including those who are home-schooled or attending private school, are welcome to attend.

The cost of the Holiday Dance is twenty dollars with an RSVP prior to Dec. 10th, and twenty five dollars at the door. Students must mail their payment and RSVP, and will then check in at the registration table at the dance.  Financial assistance is available and we encourage students to make confidential requests to our emails listed below.

The Holiday Dance is a substance free event, and while it is not a school-sponsored event, we work closely with the high school, the Hanover police and Dartmouth College security to ensure students’ safety and to keep the party free of alcohol and drugs.  Hanover High School has clear guidelines for disciplining students who violate the Code of Conduct; penalties for violations may include the loss of leadership positions such as team captain titles, or exclusion from participation in school-sponsored sports, performances and other events.  Please take a moment to review this with your student.

The Holiday Dance can only be successful with the help of parents!  There are many fun and non-intensive ways to participate. We appreciate any time you are able to give to make this a memorable night.  Here is the link to the Sign-up-Genius - Please sign up now! http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e084ba4a829a46-2014

Please follow the link and take an assignment!! We look forward to a wonderful evening!

Dear Dresden School District Family,  


We would like to extend an invitation for your son/daughter to participate in the 100th annual Christmas Mystery held in Rollins Chapel on the Dartmouth campus. The Mystery, a choral reenactment of the Nativity, is a community tradition with high school seniors participating as angels and shepherds and audience members participating by bringing wrapped gifts, this year to benefit the Haven.


We encourage all senior boys and girls, regardless of musical ability, to take part. For those who love to sing, there are small choir and solo opportunities. Fathers of angels and shepherds are invited to participate as elder shepherds.


There will be five rehearsals before the performance. If there are scheduling conflicts we can work with students to enable their participation.


We hope you will consider being a part of this wonderful tradition that has been handed down through the years by the students of our community.  


Sign-up sheets will be posted in the HHS Atrium
