On behalf of the faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to Hanover Street Elementary School. We are looking forward to a great year and encourage you to join us as we work together to provide the best learning experiences possible for our students.  Our focus on “Nighthawks have HOPE” will provide students with character trait education to help guide them through their learning.

I am excited to work alongside you, your children, and the staff at Hanover Street. More importantly, I am eager to see what we can accomplish together as a team.  I cannot wait to share the learning and success taking place at Hanover Street Elementary.  Please know I will work tirelessly to ensure your children have the best possible learning experiences while attending this school.

My goal at Hanover Street is to ensure students, staff, and families feel safe and supported in this building.  I am committed to bringing about the change necessary for students to reach their full potential and continue their quest for academic excellence.  Our district mission statement states, “The Hanover Public School District is committed to excellence in education by nurturing, challenging, and inspiring all students to achieve their full potential and to become productive citizens in a global community.”  These words serve as a commitment to our partnership to bring success during your child’s educational career.

I am excited to share our new initiatives for the 2018-2019 school year.  Our playground will be receiving a transformation to allow for a safer and more enjoyable outdoor recess experience. Hanover Street will also be receiving an electronic sign to showcase the great learning occurring within our district.  This sign will be placed on Hanover Street.  Our building theme “Nighthawks have HOPE” will encourage students and staff to develop a growth mindset perspective.  Along with some new decor to the inside of the building, our students will have monthly assemblies focusing on our “Nighthawks have HOPE” initiative.  Our students will continue to use Wonders and Everyday Math to support our curriculum. Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) will continue to be utilized to support students needing extra reading support.  

It is important for teachers, parents, and administrators to communicate frequently.  Families are encouraged to visit our website to retrieve pertinent information about our school and log into Firefly to view your child’s academics. Please follow us on Twitter using @HanStElem to get up to date information regarding all the opportunities and events students are participating in at Hanover Street. I am looking forward to a fantastic year at HSE!
