Hello Hoover Rockets,

REMINDER:  NO SCHOOL TUESDAY NOVEMBER 6TH!


CREATIVE FRUIT!

Mrs. Wilcox and Ms. Mitchell collaborated last Friday to create these scary bananas!  Our Hoover Rockets enjoyed visiting the salad bar to see their creative talents.  The picture and story will be featured in a future National Magazine for School Food Service.


Marching Band

HALLOWEEEN FUN! 

Ms. Janis' class Halloween Party
We had a lot of fun on Halloween.  The Stevenson Marching Band came and performed in their costumes.  Thank you to all the room parents and volunteers who helped make our Halloween Parties so much fun!
Mrs. Hawker's Class Party

NOVEMBER CLIMATE TRAIT:  BE RESPECTFUL
The tip for today was Be accepting of others even when they think differently.

Livonia Goodfellows'
Canned Food Drive
Oct. 30-Nov. 20 at Hoover
It's that time of year!
Students are invited to bring in cans, boxes, or unbreakable jars
of non-perishable food. Collection boxes are in the lobby!
"No child without a Christmas!"
Thank you for your support and generosity!


TREATS FOR TROOPS 11/1-11/16

LEFTOVER HALLOWEEN CANDY, PACKAGED SNACKS and other items can be donated in the box in the lobby for our Troops.

Did you know that families that talk together raise successful readers and writers?  The number of words a student is exposed to directly impacts their back ground knowledge and ability to comprehend text.  Family dinners with conversations about the school day are a great way to build language into your daily routine.   
Try these successful family tips:
1.  Limit Screen Time (include cell phones, tv, and computers)
2.  Exercise Daily
3.  Family Dinners (without cell phones or the tv on)
4.  Read 20 Minutes a day (whole family)

Thank you, Hoover Families for clipping Box Tops!! Together we raised approximately $830.00 for our Hoover Rockets. The overall class winner was Mrs. Lipinski’s 4th grade class. The winning classes for each grade level are: Mrs. Hawker, Ms. Neville, Mrs. Harris, and Mrs. Cowher. The classes will enjoy either a “Popcorn and Capri Sun Party” or a “Popsicle Party”.


BAKE SALE: PTA will be hosting a bake sale this year during the election on November 6th. We will be in need of volunteers to man the tent outside and for baked goods (store bought is fine). Please see the Sign Up Genius for details:  https://www.signupgenius.com/ go/30E0F48ACAE2BA7F49-election

Hoover Earned the Green Flag Award  

This is the message we got this week from the National Wildlife Federation:

CONGRATULATIONS! On behalf of the National Wildlife Federation, I am pleased to recognize your school for an exceptional achievement in receiving the Green Flag Award! Hoover Elementary is the first school in the State of Michigan to receive the Eco-Schools USA Green Flag, and NWF is honored to acknowledge and showcase all of your accomplishments.  

To win the Green Flag Award, Hoover Elementary School students and faculty tackled a host of sustainability initiatives including the formation of an Eco-Action team, designing a living classroom, conducting various energy and waste audits and much more. These steps have led to a variety of different outcomes and learning opportunities over the last few years, and all are designed to raise environmental and natural awareness, cut waste, increase student engagement and save money for the school and surrounding area.

National Wildlife Federation was named the stateside host for the international Eco-Schools program in 2008. The original Eco-Schools (http://www.eco-schools.org/) program is an international network of 50,000 K-12 schools in 62 nations, started in 1994 by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) with support by the European Commission. It was named by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) as a model initiative for Education for Sustainable Development in 2003. To learn more about Eco-Schools USA, visit www.eco-schoolsusa.org.

Hello Hoover Rockets,

Parent/Teacher Conferences
Thank you to all the parents/guardians that attended conferences this week.  Together we will achieve our academic goals.  Keep reading with your children and talking about what they have read.  The conversation after reading is just as important as reading.

Lunch in Classrooms due to Halloween Obstacle Course
Mr. O will have his famous Halloween Obstacle Course set up in the Multipurpose Room again this year.  Students will be eating lunch in their classrooms on Monday, October 22nd, Tuesday October 23rd and Wednesday, October 24th.



 Book Fair
The Book Fair was a huge success!  Thank you to everyone who purchased books to support our library and classrooms.

Hoot N'Howl is this Thurday from 6:00-8:00 p.m.  This is one of my favorite nights.  We will have a DJ, games, food and fun activities.  Students are not permitted to bring toy weapons to school for the Halloween parties or for Hoot N' Howl.  Students are also asked not to wear masks with their costumes.  We have young students who might be afraid of the masks.  Thanks for following the school rules.

PLEASE DISCUSS THESE RULES WITH YOUR HOOVER ROCKET IF THEY RIDE THE BUS!


Pack 907 (Cub Scouts at Hoover) are having a can/bottle drive next Saturday, October 27th and any donations are appreciated!  Cans/bottles can be dropped off in to the Pack in the Hoover parking lot.  




Mrs. Eckerle brought in a mystery item last week.  Students guessed if it was living or non-living. 
Some kids thought it was a rock, an ostrich egg, a snake egg.  They looked it up on line and many were certain it was a snake egg after we did our on-line research.  It was leathery on the outside and soft, which definitely fit the criteria for a snake egg. They cut it open to see what was inside....thank goodness no snake!!  A few students thought it was a mushroom.  They learned it was a puffball mushroom, which is EDIBLE!! They talked about fungi.  It was a great experience! 



HOOT & HOWL THURSDAY, October 25th 6:00-8:00 pm

It’s almost Halloween time Hoover Rockets!  Our annual HOOT & HOWL event is sneaking up soon, so plan to join us for a spooktacular night of fun.   Everyone is welcome to dress up in costume.  We kindly request no masks or (toy) weapons please.  There will be guessing games, Halloween games, prizes, face painting, tattoo station, haunted obstacle course, music, dancing and Dan The Creature Man for some creepy crawly fun!  Dinner will be available for purchase.  Complimentary cider & donuts will be served later in the evening while we announce the winners of the guessing games.  

The Girl Scouts will also be doing their annual “Cans For Candy” collection for the Livonia Goodfellows charity.   Bring canned goods and receive a bag of candy at the door.

Hello Hoover Rockets,
Happy Halloween from Hoover!

PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCES
Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for the afternoon and evening on Wednesday, October 17 and Thursday, October 18 (1:00-4:00 and 5:00-8:00 p.m.). Students will attend school for a half day both of these days. They will be dismissed at 12:10 p.m.

If you are unable to make your scheduled conference day and time, please contact Mrs. Holmes in the office for assistance. We are looking forward to seeing everyone at Conferences!

 The following guidelines were developed to help parents have successful conferences. I hope a few of these hints will be helpful to you:

*Decide in advance the questions you want to ask the teacher. It's a good idea to jot them down.
*Ask your child if there is anything she/he would like you to discuss with the teacher.
*Be ready to tell the teacher what she needs to know. Teachers are not prying when they ask about your child's health, hobbies, homework habits, or feelings about school. Knowing these things will be helpful in her teaching approach to your child.
*If you're concerned about something you have heard, or something your child has told you about school, keep an open mind until you hear the facts.
*Ask how you can work together with the teacher to meet your child’s needs.
 *Take notes during the conference and review them when you get home. Start right away on the action steps you and the teacher agreed upon.
*The conference doesn't end here. You have the right to know, at any time, about your child's progress. A telephone call to your child's teacher, will allow you to set up an appointment at a time convenient to both of you. Teachers value the interest and opinions of parents.

We look forward to seeing you at parent-teacher conferences and I hope you will feel free to stop in and visit with me.

Birthdays
As parents are planning birthday parties, please remember that teachers and or students cannot pass out invitations unless all of the students in the class are invited.  We do not want anyone to feel left out or excluded from an event.

Hoover is a Healthy School.  Students are not permitted to bring in birthday treats such as cupcakes or cookies for the class.  If you would like to celebrate a birthday you can send in items that are not edible or donate an indoor recess game for the classroom.  Thanks for keeping our Hoover Rockets Healthy


Rocket Pad-School Store

It is with great excitement that we are happy to announce that The Hoover School Store, The Rocket Pad, opened this week.  This year, the students on the Hoover Leadership Team will be working at the store and helping customers with their purchases.  The store sells everything from pencils to glue sticks and look for special surprises during the holiday seasons.  Each week, the First and Second Graders can shop on Tuesdays during their lunch recess and the Third and Fourth Graders can shop during their lunch recess on Thursdays.  Items range in price from a nickel to three dollars.  Gift cards and also available in fifty cent and $1.00 denominations.

THIRD GRADE FIELD TRIP
Last week, our third graders had a great field trip to Greenfield Village.  Thank you to the parents that chaperoned and the PTA for funding the transportation.






THIRD GRADE READING BILL

Are you familiar with the third grade-reading bill?  This is sometimes referred to as Public Act 306 or House Bill No. 4822.  At parent-teacher conferences, you will receive a copy of your child's fall assessment results.  The focus of parent-teacher conferences won't be on the report card, which comes home in December, but rather your child's current progress academically and socially.  To address this fall data, every classroom will have a designated period of each day devoted to providing additional supports to struggling learners and enrichment/extension activities for children who are scoring at or above grade level on their assessments.  We will also count on you for a home plan to help your child be successful with their grade level expectations.  This Third Grade Reading link contains manyinformational documents from Wayne County RESAwhich highlights the third grade-reading bill and the importance of early literacy.  Thank you for being an active partner in your child's education.


HOOT & HOWL THURSDAY, October 25th 6:00-8:00 pm
