Welcome Back

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year at Hanover Central Middle School.  I am extremely excited and honored to join the HCMS staff this year. I am confident that we will have a great year together.  I look forward to contributing to the tradition of excellence already established at Hanover Central Middle School.

I have worked with middle school students in northwest Indiana for twenty-six years.  I also have four children of my own, including sons entering sixth and seventh grade this fall.  I know what a nerve-wracking experience middle school can be for both parents and students. My goal is to help make this transition as easy and stress free as possible.  Please know that my door is always open to you and there is never a situation that is too small to discuss and solve together.

I am very excited about our upcoming 5th and 6th grade orientation on August 7.  This will be a great opportunity for our new students to see the building, find their classrooms, and try to figure out how to open their lockers!  This will also be a chance for them to begin feeling comfortable and at home here at HCMS.

The custodians are doing an amazing job getting the building ready.  We continue to uprade our safety and security measures to keep all of our students and staff safe.  Teachers and staff are working hard on lessons, schedules and all of the other things that will make this a great school year. We are all looking forward to getting the kids back into the building.

Enjoy these last few weeks of summer and I look forward to seeing you soon!
