We have finished the first grading period at HCMS and it is now time for the staff to dig in on some major initiatives designed to assist us in moving forward with improving our school and meeting the needs of our students. We will be using ISTEP results and other data to identify areas in need of improvement in order to fine-tune the school improvement plan. The middle school staff will also be involved in a district-wide curriculum mapping project to ensure a consistent core curriculum for all students aligned with the Common Core Standards. We will also be going through a self-evaluation as part of the AdvancED Accreditation process.
We have completed a very successful fall sports season with the softball, cross country, volleyball and football teams all well representing Hanover Central Middle School. Good job fall athletes. Some of the winter teams have started practice as we look forward to enjoying some basketball and wrestling. Good luck to the winter athletes. Go Wildcats.
