Freshmen Book Initiative
Freshman Free Book Information
As part of a teacher-driven grant funded through Dover’s SEED program as well as the Dover Rotary Club Literacy Initiative, we are offering every freshman a free book!
To help them make a choice that is right for them, students have done the following:
- visited the DHS Library for an orientation activity
- watched book trailers
- explored genres
- explored genres and favorite books in NoveList, a database that provides read-alike suggestions
We are excited to have your student share their book choices with you.
Please ask your student about the books they have selected as their first and second choices.
National Honor Society Prom Dress Initiative
Dover High School’s chapter of the National Honor Society is once again sponsoring a prom dress sale! They are currently looking for dress donations so please empty your closets! The National Honor Society is accepting formal and semi formal dresses (prom, homecoming, bridesmaids, formals….)
Dresses will be sold to students for $20 the week of January 9th through 13th.
Proceeds will be donated to our Relay for Life team benefitting the American Cancer Society.
Drop dress donations at the Dover High School main office or contact j. [email protected]for pickup.
First Quarter End Date
Quarter One ended on Friday, November 4th. Quarter One grades will be posted for students and families on Monday, November 14th.
Timeliness is important to student success at Dover High School and demonstrates responsibility. We ask for your support in getting students to school on-time. For juniors and seniors who park on campus, their parking privileges are contingent on not having ten undocumented tardies in a semester. Sophomores and juniors need to know this will impact their ability to park on campus next year.
SAT Boot Camp
SAT bootcamps offer free test prep for New Hampshire students
CONCORD, NH (Sept. 27, 2022) — New Hampshire students are invited to participate in two upcoming SAT prep courses, at no cost, to prepare for the November and December SAT exams.
Schoolhouse.world is excited to announce two, four-week bootcamps for students planning to take upcoming SAT tests:
- October 8 – November 4 (for the Nov. 5, 2022 SAT exam)
- November 5 – December 2 (for the Dec. 3, 2022 SAT exam)
Each bootcamp will include eight sessions with 75-minutes each of test prep with a certified, online tutor with Schoolhouse.world. Students will work in a cohort with students of similar abilities for their tutoring sessions, which will focus on mastering skills, building strategies, time management and completing full-length practice exams. Sessions will highlight both reading and math SAT practice test questions.
“This is a great opportunity for New Hampshire youth to take advantage of free SAT prep courses. These small-group SAT tutoring sessions can help students of all abilities find the motivation, knowledge and confidence to reach their goals,” said Frank Edelblut, commissioner of education.
On average, students who complete the bootcamp often improve their test score by about 90 or more points across both sections, according to organizers. NHED was the first state in the nation to partner with Sal Khan and Schoolhouse.world to provide free tutoring to its high school students.
To pre-register for one of the sessions, visit SATbootcamp. This program also serves as a research study around the efficacy of SAT tutoring, meaning students may be asked to complete occasional surveys, short exercises and participate in focus groups about their bootcamp experience; full details will be provided upfront during the sign-up process.
