First, students in Ms Greene's painting class spent several days blending acrylics and learning layering, application and mixing techniques. Then most students traced pencil outlines of themselves onto their canvases using a camera device called a Visualizer, which allowed them to get proportions right in a reasonably short time. A few advanced students painted directly from observation. The portraits are hanging in the atrium for the last several weeks of school.

At the town Town of Hanover's Muster Day (Memorial Day) at the Old Meeting House, the HHS Band accompanied the audience in the singing of America The Beautiful and the Star Spangled Banner. Boy Scouts read the Pledge of Allegiance and Girl Scouts read the Gettysburg Address. Then the Scouts led the audience to the cemetery while the band played the anthems of the Army, Navy , Coast Guard, Air Force and Marines. Two buglers ended the ceremony with Taps. HHS Band Director Norman Wolfe writes: "It's a very simple but memorable occasion and I am lately humbled by the large number of band students who participate. Sixty student volunteers took part, or about 75% of the Band, double the number from a few years ago."

Sam Farnham, class of 2010, is an easy-going, curious and genuinely kind student who gives a lot of his time to other people without seeking any recognition. He volunteers at the Dartmouth Child Care Center and coaches 3rd & 4th grade basketball. Sam has sung in the chorus and played baseball and soccer for four years, but it is soccer that he loves. He has taken Italian at Dartmouth and this year he co-taught the March Intensive class “Speaking Spaghetti.” Sam will attend Dartmouth College in the fall where he plans on majoring in Italian and Economics.
