It's Your Time to Grow
Close your eyes and blink, and Homecoming, 2018 was over. A very special time of year for our students, this year's homecoming theme; "It's your time to grow," celebrated the four seasons of the year. It began on Monday with the judging of the Senior, Junior, Sophomore, and Freshman hallways. While every hallway looked amazing, the Senior hallway took the top prize.
Staying true to their 'summer' theme, the HCHS Seniors took the top prize for hallway decorating
All week long students celebrated Spirit days. On Monday you could find teachers and students dressed for the decades. On Tuesday, some vary tacky tourists took over the school. On Wednesday, their was no shortage of cowboys and cowgirls as the student body celebrated western day. Thursday was class day and Friday found the Hanover colors on nearly every student!
