A look at all student council related news, announcements, and events!
HOMECOMING: It’s the month of October and what does that remind you of? HOMECOMING! Whether you’re a girl having trouble finding a dress or a guy who couldn’t care less, DON’T FORGET TO BUY YOUR TICKET! Homecoming is an awesome time that you DO NOT want to miss out on! Tickets are on sale now at all lunches for $30 each. Homecoming will be on Saturday, October 26th. This price includes a great meal and a night of dancing and fun. It’s a great night that you will never forget, and won’t regret taking part in! And why not use all of this excitement as an excuse to get yourself pumped full of school pride? Definitely plan on supporting any Hanover High sports teams playing that weekend- it’s a great way to band together and show off our abundance of school spirit!
SPIRIT WEEK: With Homecoming approaching, that means Spirit Week is coming up! Celebrate each day with a festive costume to match the theme, and don’t forget about Class Color day, where you can represent your class by sporting a color based on your grade. Seniors wear blue, juniors wear black, sophomores wear white, and freshmen wear yellow. Class t-shirts were sold during lunches, and if you purchased one, you can wear it and show your class colors along with the rest of your friends! These shirts will be a great way to remember your years at HHS, and you will never regret having one to keep for years to come. Spirit week begins Monday, October 21st, and the themes are as follows:
Monday, Oct. 21 – Disney Day! (sport your favorite disney character costumes, disney logos, etc… unleash your inner kid for the day!)
Tuesday, Oct. 22 – America Day! (Show off your pride for this great nation by decking head to toe in red, white and blue- get your American flags ready and show your American pride!)
Wednesday, Oct. 23 – Class Color Day! (Support your class by wearing your custom class t- shirt, or just covering your entire body in your class color- seniors wear blue, juniors black, sophomores white, and freshmen yellow. Go crazy and show the rest of the school how spirited your class can be!)
Thursday, Oct. 24 – Twin Day! (Grab your best friend and dress as twins! Match everything and have some fun with it- be creative!)
Friday, Oct. 25 – Hanover Pride! (It’s rally day, everybody! Blue and gold all the way- go full out and show your town spirit!)
HALLWAY DECORATIONS: Another aspect of Spirit Week is the colorful hallway decorations, plastered in the pods by your class student council members, all reflecting a custom theme in the competition to see which class is the most festive. The themes will remain a secret until the day of the reveal, so be sure to look out for each class’s theme this spirit week!! Decide for yourself which pod is decorated the best!
STUCO SUPPORTED EVENTS: Over the past month, the Buddy Walk and the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk were two very cool events, both on Sunday, October 6th. Despite the rain and chill, everyone who attended these events had an awesome time and made the best of their strides! More events represented by student council will occur in the future, and as many people as possible are encouraged to participate and support the worthy causes.
