Coat Drive Success
Thank you Hoover Rockets for all your donations to Abby's Coat Drive.  She collected 73 coats, 125 hats, 76 pairs of gloves, 7 pairs of boots, 13 snow pants, 19 scarfs, 17 sweatshirts for a total of 330 items.  She delivered the items to the Clothing Depot on Tuesday morning.


IREADY Diagnostic #2
Our Hoover Rockets will be starting the IREADY Diagnostic #2 for Math and Reading next week.  During the Diagnostic Window, students who have an instructional license will not be able to access their lessons.  Once they have completed their Diagnostics they will be able to resume their lessons.  The lessons will be available over the Winter Break.  Students should be spending 45 minutes a week on their IREADY lessons.  

Did you know that student anxiety is on the rise?  There are some things you can do now with your Hoover Rocket to prevent teen anxiety.
1.  Exposure is the best way to conquer fear but only when it's done incrementally. Without practice, gentle nudging, and guidance, kids never gain confidence that they can face their fears head-on.
2. Unstructured play teaches kids vital skills, like how to manage disagreements without an adult refereeing. And solitary play teaches kids how to be alone with their thoughts and comfortable in their own skin.
3. Kids grow up believing that if they don't feel happy around the clock, something must be wrong. That creates a lot of inner turmoil. They don't understand that it's normal and healthy to feel sad, frustrated, guilty, disappointed, and angry sometimes, too.

11.8.19

Hello Hoover Rockets,

Helping Hearts
Unfortunately, the economy has presented challenges for many of our families. Please know there are agencies in the area that offer holiday assistance. While it may seem early many of these programs are already accepting applications. I do have applications available but if you prefer to contact them directly their information is listed below. Additionally, Hoover Elementary has the Helping Hearts Fund which is used to support our families in a time of need. Any information shared will remain confidential. We care deeply about our families and respecting their privacy. For more information, please contact Jan Bice at 734/744-2730 ext. 20120, Livonia Goodfellows 313-438-0862, Salvation Army 313-563-4457 or Toys for Tots Linda Rankin at 248-777-0510.
Canned and Boxed Food Drive
Hoover’s Girl Scouts are collecting food for the Livonia Goodfellows. Since 1936 the Goodfellows have been helping Livonia families and is completely run by volunteers. This drive will support their “No Child without a Christmas” campaign. All food goes to area families. Please bring non-perishable can or boxed food. There will be boxes in the lobby and in each hallway. We will be collected through November 25th. Your support is greatly appreciated!

Guidelines for Parent & Teacher E-Mail
E-mail has enriched communication opportunities between teachers and parents. There are benefits and drawbacks to these improvements in technology. In some ways, the new technology has added to everyone’s workload and led to an expectation for a turn-around response time that might not be possible. The guidelines for what is effective and appropriate in terms of e-mail communication need to be clarified.

Teacher Realities
The classroom environment does not allow teachers to check their emails regularly. In a best case scenario, they check and respond to emails once a day. Response time can be further delayed by teachers being unavailable due to illness, training sessions, meetings, workshops, and conferences before and after school. Teachers devote extra time learning new curriculum, standards, and assessments and then preparing for classroom instruction.

Issues to Consider Before E-Mailing a Teacher
*Timing: Remember the classroom environment and the complexity of each teacher’s day. If you don’t get an answer the same day, it doesn’t mean you’re being ignored.
*Purpose of Communication: Think about your goal in communicating with the teacher. If the goal is to merely share a piece of information or give the teacher some lead time to think about an issue you’d like to discuss, an e-mail is probably appropriate. If the goal, however, is to have two-way communication and meaningful dialogue, e-mail is not appropriate. The telephone or a face-to-face meeting is a better option.
*Sheer Volume: Each Hoover teacher has between 23-30 students. Think about the volume of e-mails this many parents could generate. Please Keep in Mind Teachers are interested in communicating with parents. Teachers want to know if a student is experiencing difficulty at home or at school. Communication, although important, needs to be controlled. Responding to e-mails takes time and thought. E-mails leave a lot of room for misunderstanding.

LOST AND FOUND…REMINDER

Fall is upon us and so is the cool weather. We have many items already filling the bins our Lost and Found.  Please make sure that your child's sweatshirts, sweaters, and jackets have a name on the label so that they can be returned to them.  If you are missing something, stop by the lost and found.  Every effort is made to locate owners.  Items not claimed prior to Thanksgiving Recess will be removed and donated to the Livonia Clothing Depot.

Outdoor Recess
We will go outside for recess as long as the temperature and wind chill combined are 15 degrees. We will be outside for 25 minutes, two times a day, so please make sure your child dresses for the weather.


Did you know that each school in Livonia Public Schools received large banners to share out our commitment to creating a school wide culture of excellence? I mentioned in an earlier post that we had the chance to hear the inspirational author and speaker, Jimmy Casas, talk about the four pillars of a strong culture. These pillars of "Be a champion for all students", "Expect excellence", "Carry the banner" and "Be a merchant of hope" are now hanging in our gymnasium for all to see. Great things are happening at Hoover!

Hello Hoover Rockets,

NO SCHOOL November 5th
Election Day is on November 5th.  No school for students while teachers have a Professional Development Day.


Stevenson Marching Band Assembly
Yesterday the Stevenson March Band came to Hoover and performed for our Hoover Rockets.  The students and staff enjoyed hearing the Disney songs and learning the Stevenson Fight Song!  Go Spartans!

Halloween Obstacle
Thank you to Mr. O for a great week in
Physical Education.  The students enjoyed the Halloween Obstacle.









Mrs. Eckerle's Class
Halloween Parties
Thank you to the parents and grand parents that assisted with our Halloween Parties yesterday.  Fun was had by all!




Hoot N' Howl
Thank you to our PTA, staff and volunteers who made the Hoot N' Howl such a fun night.  We had great food, great games, live creatures including an alligator.











IREADY Instruction  
If you child received an IREADY license it is important for them to spend at least 45 minutes a week on IREADY. The research shows that students improve their IREADY diagnostic scores when they spend 45 minutes a week minimally on the IREADY instruction.  Please encourage them to try their best and stay focused on the lessons.  If you are having trouble getting your child logged on to IREADY try this:
1.  Go to clever.com/in/livonia 
2. Login with Google using their email address (Username@student.livoniapublicschools.org) and email password
So for example a student named Sydney Linn would use her email address sydney@student.livoniapublicschools.org and then enter her email password which is the same as her user name password that she should know from logging in the Chromebooks and computers in the lab.  If this does not work please contact your child's teacher or Mrs. Linn (jlinn2@livoniapublicschools.org).

4th Grade Team
My name is Kaiia McCurry and I am a 4th grade teacher at Hoover Elementary School. This is my fourth year teaching but second year teaching for Livonia Public Schools. Prior to this year, I have taught 5th and 1st grade, both of which I really enjoyed. I went to Eastern Michigan University for my undergraduate's where I focused in elementary education and mathematics. Currently, I am studying literacy and language at Michigan State University for my master's degree, GO GREEN! I have been married for a little over two years, and we have a yorkie named Simba. My husband and I are huge movie buffs, so in our free time we love to go to the cinema to catch the newest film. I spent this past summer traveling to visit my siblings around the United States, I have 7 older brothers and sisters, all of which live out of state. I am so excited to be at Hoover this year and I look forward to all of the fun that we're going to have this year!

HOOT & HOWL THANKS!
