Congratulations to the Hanover Middle School Band and Orchestra for their recent awards earned at the Music In The Parks Adjudication Festival. Both groups competed at the HersheyPark Festival and placed 2nd in their division. Even more impressive was winning the "Esprit de Corps" Award, which is presented to the students from a school who demonstrate proper social behavior as well as musical behavior/encouragement. They possess the qualities of highly successful people who are sensitive to the feelings of others and applaud accomplishments no matter if by one's own school or another school. All students groups were being evaluated from their arrival at the festival sites until the awards ceremony. There were 16 participating schools from Maryland, New Jersey, Virginia, and Pennsylvania eligible for this award, but only one group has the honor of bringing this trophy back to their school. Congratulations to our Hanover musicians for their outstanding musical accomplishments, and for representing our school and community.

The Hanover Middle School Student Council recently coordinated a campaign called Pennies for Patients, which benefits children who are battling leukemia. HMS students raised a total of $2,000 to be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in Harrisburg. The check was recently presented to an organization spokesperson by the HMS Student Council officers.
The HMS Student Council has worked hard this year to help the community in and around Hanover. They coordinated the annual Canned Food Drive, which resulted in HMS accumulating more than 2,000 canned food items that were donated to the Hanover Council of Churches before Christmas. Student Council members are also helping Olivia’s House in York to accumulate donated art supplies. HMS Student Council advisors are Mrs. Clark and Miss Coleman.
Over 80 middle school students attended For Emma Dance a Thon. They raised $1,600
