One to One at Hanover Central?

You may or may not have heard the rumors that Hanover may be going one to one. This means that the school would rent out computers to all students. While current seniors may feel indifferent about this situation, everyone else is on a rollercoaster of emotion. The jury is still out for most students. Some think that our school going one to one would be a big step into a more tech-savvy direction. We’re already getting more and more involved in technology as it is, with things like Google Classroom. Going one to one would make it much easier for everyone to have access to assignments and there would be less paper waste. On the other hand, some students believe that going one to one would be just another object to lug around with them. Whatever the school decides, make sure to be careful with those chrome books. You never know, next it may be yours.

Girls Golf Comes to A close


The Hanover Central Girls Golf team is officially done with their 2016 season. The girls fought hard the whole season and their effort definitely showed. During the season, the girls managed to walk away with a conference championship title, a sectional title, and went undefeated in their conference. The team as a whole did better than they have in five years. Senior Megan Baldwin says, “It’s bittersweet. I love this team and I’m so proud of everyone on it and how far we’ve come. It’s such a good note to leave on.”

The New Senior Class Sponsors

Mrs. Suarez has been a teacher at Hanover Central for four years now. She teaches physical education and health, and she is also the head coach of the softball team. Mrs. Suarez has been a class sponsor every year she has taught at Hanover Central. At her previous school, she was also a class sponsor for three years. During her first year at Hanover, she was the junior class sponsor and in her second year she followed the juniors into their senior year and remained their class sponsor. She has filled the positions of two former teachers that have left the school – Mr. Hill and Mrs. Bult. After their departure, Mrs. Suarez took the position as the senior class sponsor for the class of 2017. During an interview with Mrs. Suarez I asked her if it is a challenge being a class sponsor. She replied by stating “Being a class sponsor is not hard work, but there is a lot of it.” Mrs. Suarez gave me list of events she organizes. These included the following: Homecoming decorations, Homecoming float, the Powder Puff football game, field trips, T-shirts, orders for caps and gowns, the senior picnic, panoramic senior picture, and graduation. She also went on to state “it’s time consuming”. Mrs. Suarez definitely has the experience of being an effective class sponsor and she has done well her past four years at Hanover Central. It is safe to say that the class of 2017 is in safe hands.
