On November 5, first grade classes were visited by a presenter from Hanover Tavern with a trunk full of items showcasing artifacts that have been used over the centuries by the people who lived, worked at, or visited the tavern.  Built in the early-mid 1700's, the tavern boasts a place in history for over three centuries, having hosted people from George Washington and Patrick Henry during Revolutionary Times, to Union and Confederate soldiers in Civil War times, to a group of actors from New York in the 1950's who turned the historic tavern into a theatre. The travelling trunk helped bring history to life for the students.

The HHMS renovation is underway. Construction crews have begun demolition of the school board offices and will then begin the construction of what will be the 6th grade wing. Starting TOMORROW, Wednesday January 24th,  the access road from Rt. 30 to AES will be closed until further notice.  Therefore, all traffic coming to and from AES will need to use Acquinton Church Road.  We realize that this is an inconvenience for our families and we appreciate your patience as we make much needed improvements to the HHMS facility.
