Why Try Curriculum

“The WhyTry program was created to provide simple, hands-on solutions for dropout prevention, violence prevention, truancy reduction, and increased academic success. The idea is straightforward: Teach social and emotional principles to youth in a way they can understand and remember. WhyTry is based on sound empirical principles, including solution-focused brief therapy, social and emotional intelligence, and multi-sensory learning. The WhyTry curriculum utilizes a series of ten visual analogies that teach important life skills (e.g., decisions have consequences; dealing with with peer pressure; obeying laws and rules; plugging in to support systems). The visual analogies are reinforced through creative use of music, hands-on activities, and multimedia. Why Try curriculum engages all major learning styles (visual, auditory, and body-kinesthetic).” –WhyTry.org/info

Dear Parents, Staff, and Teachers, 
 
This is not the way I hoped to make first contact with many of you. Unfortunately,  the district has experienced an unfortunate failure that has interrupted the water supply to the Admin and JSHS facilities.   
 
Because of this, I,  with input from the board, have decided to push school opening at least one week, as we assess the issue and devise a remedy.  For now, new staff will report on August 9th, all staff will be at District training on August 10th, Building training will take place on August 11th, and classes will begin on August 12th. 
 
Please feel free to contact your school or District administrator if you have any questions. As always I am available to talk at any time. We appreciate your patience during this delay. 
 
Thank you and we’re looking forward to an excellent new school year for The Hornet Nation. 
 
Best,  
Kyle Cooper 
Superintendent 
Hanover School District
