2018 Summer Reading

​Required summer reading information and assignments can be found by clicking here

Grab & Go is a program that works to provide local school children with food during the summer vacation months when access to school lunch and outreach assistance is not available.  The program is made possible by the efforts of volunteers led by local resident, Pat Sorensen.  She and her organization work tirelessly to help our students and families that face food security issues.  We ask that you consider making a donation to this worthwhile effort.  

The program runs on Thursdays and Fridays from June 28th through August 31st.  Dover High School is a distribution site with food available in the front lobby from 12:15 pm to 1:00 pm on Thursdays and 5:15 pm to 6:00 pm on Fridays.

Dear Dover High School Community,

For many local children the coming summer vacation weeks will mean days of prolonged hunger.  Thirty percent of Dover's school children are eligible for free or reduced lunch and hundreds of pre-school children suffer from food insufficiency as well.

Grab & Go summer food program, now in its fourth year, is preparing for this year’s first distribution in late June.  Run entirely by volunteers, Grab & Go served 85 children at 2 sites in its first year.  This summer we expect to distribute weekend food bags to 400 children at 15 sites. 

Your generous financial gifts made it possible for us to distribute over 4000 food bags in past years.  May we count on your continuing support this year to insure a healthy summer for Dover’s children?  Please make your tax deductible gift payable to Grab & Go and mail it to:

Warmest thanks,

Pat Sorensen

To help with planning, we want to let families know that the first two days of school will look different for 2018-2019.  Because the building will be new to staff and students, we will run an orientation day for juniors and seniors on Wednesday, August 29th and an orientation day for freshmen and sophomores on Thursday, August 30th.  Both days will be full days following the 7:40 am to 2:30 pm schedule and busing will be provided. 

Tuesday, September 4th will be the first day for all students.  More information will be sent out with summer mailing that is sent out in the last week of July.



Don't forget, New Hampshire is a hand-free driving state.  Anyone under 18 is prohibited from using any mobile device when driving, hands free or not, except to report an emergency.
