Penny Wars: April 16th-20th Hoover will have our annual Penny Wars. The contest will decide what animal the PTA should adopt at the Detroit Zoo. Our Hoover Rockets, and sometimes community members, bring in their spare change and place it in one of two jars. This year’s two animal choices will be the giraffe or kangaroo. The winning animal will be adopted and a plaque will be placed outside their habitat at the zoo. Please send in loose change with your Hoover Rocket next week to participate and your student can help us decide which habitat to adopt.
Ice Cream Social/Art and Science Fair will be Thursday, April 26th from 6-8pm. This will be a big night for Hoover as we have a chance to see our Rockets artistic abilities and scientific experiments on display. Please join us for a fun night celebrating our Hoover Rockets and enjoy an ice cream sundae. This event is free; however donations are appreciated for the Ice Cream Social portion. The signup genius will be available soon.
