6.5.20

Hello Hoover Rockets,
Thank you Karen for the sidewalk art!
As we close the year, I want to share with you my tremendous gratitude for entrusting your children to us. Our Hoover Rockets are amazing young boys and girls. I enjoy them so much! Additionally, I am awed by the efforts of our staff each day and am thankful for their commitment to the children and to one another. It is my privilege to serve as the principal of Hoover Elementary. I wish each of our boys and girls, as well as their families, a summer filled with SUNSHINE and memory making events. Whether you are enjoying rides on your bikes, trips to the Dairy Barn or travels across America, I hope your days are happy ones!
We are looking forward to a great 2020/21 school year. At this time, we do not know what it will look like, but we are confident that our Hoover Staff will be ready to provide engaging instruction whether that is in person, on-line or some combination. During these last couple months we have appreciated all of your patience, grit and positive attitude as we have learned how to switch to on line learning. Our staff has collaborated with their grade level teammates and with you to keep our Hoover Rockets engaged in literacy and math! Keep reading and practicing those math facts this summer.

There is so much to be determined for the fall of 2020. Please keep informed by
visiting the LPS website on a regular basis. The district is currently working on
a 'back to school' plan, and will be sharing progress as the summer unfolds.
In the meantime, we have one week left of virtual learning, and look forward to seeing everyone at the Belongings Pick Up Days!


4th Grade Drive By Clap Out

On Thursday, June 11th our 4th grade families are encouraged to drive through the Parent Parking Lot (North Lot) between 4:30-5:00 for our Drive By Clap Out.  Our amazing Hoover staff will be outside clapping, cheering and celebrating our 4th Grade Hoover Rockets. Decorate your car with posters, ballons and messages.  Join us as we wish them luck at Riley.  Vehicles will enter the parking lot from the North Side and will pull forward towards the buiding to the South side of the lot (opposite route of the Drop Off Lane).  The staff will be lined up on the sidewalk in front of the fence.  Please be patient as we acknowledge and celebrate our 4th graders.  We have a parent volunteer who will video the Drive By Clap Out and we will share the link.

Report Cards Available on June 17 on Parent Connect

We will not be mailing the report card this year. The teachers have prepared a narrative paragraph that will be available starting June 17th on Parent Connect.


Parent Connect

Please make sure you know how to access your student's information on Parent Connect. We will NOT be mailing student placement letters next year. You will find out your child's assignment by checking Parent Connect. Please contact the office if you are not sure how to access your account.

Chromebooks will not be collected prior to summer break.  If families have checked out a Chromebook, they are encouraged to use these throughout the summer for summer learning opportunities.  Additional information about these Chromebooks will be available in August.

their cards, which can be re-activated if you return to SACC in the fall.

Guides to talking about the Coronavirus with children
The University of Michigan School of Public Health has created some free resources for you and your children to learn about and discuss the coronavirus and how we are living with this new germ and new disease.
The video uses an age-appropriate look and feel, and the message is delivered in the voice of a child, which we hope makes it more approachable for your child. The Family Guide will help prepare you for a discussion with your children, including some basic discussion tips, some of the ways we think this video and the discussion will help them, and some other questions your children might ask.

The Family Guide is available for download also in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, and Spanish. And the video can be viewed with subtitles in those five languages as well. To switch subtitle language, click on the settings (gear icon) and select the language of your choice.

Fall Registration
All new students (kindergartners or anyone who will be new to Hoover) need to register online, the sooner the better!
The LPS website has the link to get you started:
Please spread the word to family, friends, and neighbors.


Did you know that our Hoover teachers spend 2-3 hours preparing and creating each 10 minute video lesson?  They write a script, follow a lesson plan, create the visuals whether slides, manipulatives or examples and prepare the materials.  Then they set up the camera or Chromebook and often need the assistance of a a family member to do the recording.  After many, many takes they get a version that they are happy with and the downloading process begins.  Once the video is downloaded they can edit it and make some corrections and then create the link, share and post the lessons.  All of our Hoover staff quickly learned this process from home with the support of Mrs. Jungwirth and each other!  Who knew that we would become film producers and video editors.

Congratulations to our new PTA Board who were elected Tuesday night.  They are already make plans for next year.

Hello Hoover Rockets,

Plan for picking up Student Belongings  (6/8-6/10)
We would like to give families an opportunity to pick up your child's personal items from Hoover. We have established the following schedule and protocols to pick up these items while maintaining social distancing and safe procedures.
  • This will be a curbside pick up for families. Parents/students WILL NOT need to get out of their vehicles.
  • At this pickup, there WILL NOT be an opportunity to enter the building for our families.

If you missed other days

Library Books/Browsing Books/Textbooks

If you have a school library or classroom browsing books or textbooks at home please return at this time.  A blue bin will be available to collect your library books at curbside drop off



Message from Mrs. Jungwirth:

We know it's been awhile, so if you are not sure which books have been checked out by your child, please watch this quick 5 minute video by Mrs. Jungwirth to find out how to access that information!  As I stated in the video, the teachers are finding library books in lockers and desks, so if you're having trouble finding them at home, check back again using the method in the video after June 5th to see if the books were found at school.  Hope you've been enjoying reading!
Mrs. Jungwirth


Medications
If your student still has medication at their school, notify the main office and we will make arrangements to have the medication delivered to your vehicle during curbside pick-up. Mrs. Bice will have the 20/21 medication paperwork ready for you to pick up also.

Chromebooks
At this time Chromebooks will not be collected.  Lessons continue until June 12th.

Placements

As we enter the final days of the school year, thoughts regarding planning for the upcoming school year begin to enter our conversations. I would like to take this opportunity to share with all of you the careful process we will be using to place students into grades 1-4 for the coming school year. First and foremost, please trust that all that we know about your child as a unique individual and as a learner will be taken into consideration. Many hours of discussion, review and consideration on the part of our teachers and myself, go into the creation of classes and teacher placement with those classes. Here are some details regarding this important process:

Class lists are developed by classroom teachers and myself, with input from our support staff members as appropriate (i.e.: EST, RCR, and Special Teachers). Many different factors are taken into consideration, including but not limited to: students ability levels; district benchmark assessments in math, reading and writing; behavior and learning patterns; peer relations; gender; work independence; special learning or behavior needs and supports.

We work diligently to create heterogeneous classes which are balanced and include groups of students who can be combined in such a way that the group dynamics maximize the learning process for all children.

Each year, the possibility of creating a combination class exists. Combination classes (i.e.: 3rd and 4th grade “split”) may be created due to the number of students at each grade level. All children will be challenged and are expected to achieve whether they are in a combination class or a straight grade level class. Over the years, we have had extremely successful results with combination classes, thanks to the great efforts of our staff in working to provide meaningful and highly effective instruction to all children, and the strong support of our parents.


We are in the initial stages of staffing and cannot be certain of assignments until school actually opens in the fall. This includes the designation of how many and which teachers are assigned to our school and to which grade level they will be assigned. Some teachers may change grade levels. Please do not speculate with your child who he/she may have. It would be unfortunate if your child anticipated a certain teacher, especially if that teacher were moved to another grade level or assigned to another school within our district, and he/she were to be disappointed.


If you, as a parent, feel that there is significant or unique information about your child about which we are unaware and which may affect his/her placement, you are always welcome to share this information with your child’s current teacher and with me. We ask that you please do so in an email. This would not include a request for a specific teacher, as requests for teachers will not be granted. I ask that you please do not approach your child’s current teacher with a request for a specific teacher for next year. Thank you for respecting this process.

The June Climate Character Trait is Reflection.
Reflective: relating to or characterized by deep thought; thoughtful.

As we approach the end of our school year, it is important to be reflective in where we were and how far we have come. Be thoughtful in your reflections; look for things you can change, improve upon and areas of growth. Take a moment to breathe, reflect and move on.

Self-Reflection Questions for Learning
Now that it’s over, what are my first thoughts about this overall experience, project, class, etc? Are they mostly positive or negative?
If positive, what comes to mind specifically? Negative?
What were some of the most interesting discoveries I made while working on this project, class, etc? About the problem? About myself? About others?
What were some of my most challenging moments and what made them so?
What were some of my most powerful learning moments and what made them so?
What is the most important thing I learned personally?

Reflective listening is also an important skill to develop. Be like a mirror - reflect back what you think, feel and sense that the speaker is saying and feeling.

Work to clear the mirror so that you can reflect more clearly.

KG Orientation

We are so excited to share with you our very first Virtual Hoover Kindergarten Orientation.  Please watch the video to learn about Hoover Kindergarten and what you can do to prepare your Hoover Rocket for the 20/21 School Year.   We will be passing out Goodie Bags and Folders with some Kindergarten Readiness Activities on Friday, June 5th from 11:00-1:00.  Plan on staying in your car and driving through the bus loop!  
KG Orientation Video (click on the blue)
If you still have questions after watching the video, you have a couple options:

1.  You can type your questions in this FAQ for Incoming KG Hoover Families (click on the blue) and I will answer the questions as best as I can at this time.  Please review the previous questions in case your answer is already there.

2.  We will be hosting optional Zoom Meetings for those interested on Wednesday June 3, 2020 at 9:00 AM3:30 PM and 6:30 PM.  Some of our staff will be popping in to introduce themselves and I will be available to answer questions.  

Here are the links for the Zoom Meetings:

6:30 Join Zoom Meeting

We are hoping to have an in person KG Orientation on August 27th (depending on the state guidelines).  Mark your calendars and plan on bringing your future KG child to Hoover that day.  


Did you know that Hoover has a butterfly garden?  Did you know that your family can come visit the Hoover Outdoor Classroom all summer?  Bring some bird seed and fill the bird feeders.  Check out the rings and look for critters.
We realize that not everyone is familiar with the Eco-Schools program or the pathways that Hoover is working on, so we created an Eco-Action Google Classroom that everyone is welcome to join in order to learn more. You can find all kinds of information about the program, including slideshows describing our work, videos we made, descriptions of each pathway and how we’ve achieved it, and also current activities to engage in such as gardening and virtual field trips/camps with local parks and nature centers. There is a discussion board where students can comment on activities they are engaged in during this time apart from each other. We hope that you check it out & find some fun activities for your family!

The code to join the classroom is hv6nzfp.

Hello Hoover Rockets,

It was great to see our special teachers and support staff joining Class Zoom Meetings.  Lots of smiles on our Hoover Rockets faces!  We miss everyone.  Thank you to our amazing PTA for the signs for Staff Appreciation!  We hope everyone is healthy and planning on getting outside for  some sunshine and exercise this weekend.

Memorial Day

No School  this afternoon and on Monday, May 25th!  Happy Memorial Day!
There will be no class meetings or assignments posted on Monday, May 25 in observance of Memorial Day.



Student Personal Belongings

Depending on when the Stay at Home is lifted, we will have a Student Belonging Curbside Pick Up.  Hoping for the week of June 8th.  Look for more information to come in the future.


Eco-Action

One of the unique features of Hoover is that we are a Green Flag school in the Eco-Schools USA program, in fact the first school in Michigan to receive this award! Through this program, our Hoover Eco-Action team has pursued 5 main pathways: Healthy Living, Energy, Waste & Consumption, Schoolyard Habitats, and Biodiversity. Our recycling program, gardens, outdoor classroom, exercise and hiking trails all fit into this framework. We have also partnered with General Motors to collaborate on green projects through the Eco-Green program.

We realize that not everyone is familiar with the Eco-Schools program or the pathways that Hoover is working on, so we created an Eco-Action Google Classroom that everyone is welcome to join in order to learn more. You can find all kinds of information about the program, including slideshows describing our work, videos we made, descriptions of each pathway and how we’ve achieved it, and also current activities to engage in such as gardening and virtual field trips/camps with local parks and nature centers.

Virtual KG Orientation 

We will be emailing the KG Orientation Power Point and will be offering a Zoom Meeting on June 3rd for families to ask questions and meet some of the staff.  Look for an email next week with more details.

Do you know how many hours of sleep your Hoover Rocket needs?  It is easy to slip into bad sleep habits while we are home and on a different schedule.

Childhood Sleep Guidelines

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) provides some helpful guidelines regarding just how much sleep children need at different stages in their development. Keep in mind that these numbers reflect total sleep hours in a 24-hour period. So if your son or daughter still naps, you'll need to take that into account when you add up his or her typical sleep hours.
Sleep Hours Table
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) supports the AASM guidelines and encourages parents to make sure their children develop good sleep habits right from the start.
  • Make sufficient sleep a family priority. Understand the importance of getting enough sleep and how sleep affects the overall health of you and your children. Remember that you are a role model to your child; set a good example. Staying up all night with your teen to edit his or her paper or pulling an all-nighter for work yourself isn't really sending the right message. Making sleep a priority for yourself shows your children that it's part of living a healthy lifestyle—like eating right and exercising regularly.
  • Keep to a regular daily routine. The same waking time, meal times, nap time, and play times will help your child feel secure and comfortable, and help with a smooth bedtime. For young children, it helps to start early with a bedtime routine such as brush, book, bed. Make sure the sleep routines you use can be used anywhere, so you can help your child get to sleep wherever you may be.  
  • Be active during the day. Make sure your kids have interesting and varied activities during the day, including physical activity and fresh air. See Energy Out: Daily Physical Activity Recommendations for more information.
  • Monitor screen time. The AAP recommends keeping all screens—TVs, computers, laptops, tablets, and phones out of children's bedrooms, especially at night. To prevent sleep disruption, turn off all screens at least 60 minutes/1 hour before bedtime.  Create a Family Media Use Plan and set boundaries about use before bedtime.​
  • Create a sleep-supportive and safe bedroom and home environment. Dim the lights prior to bedtime and control the temperature in the home. Don't fill up your child's bed with toys. Keep your child's bed a place to sleep, rather than a place to play. One or two things—a favorite doll or bear, a security blanket—are okay and can help ease separation anxietySee Suitable Sleeping Sites for more information specifically for babies under 12 months of age.
HELLO HOOVER ROCKETS,
We are up to day 71 with only 22 days until the last day of school! We got this!
