Eco-Action Updates

Hello Hoover Rockets!

Our Eco-Action Iniatiaves are in full swing!  Our 4th Grade Energy Audit Team has been counting light bulbs, and electronic devices in each classroom.  They have been checking the thermostat settings, looking for broken blinds and checking timers.  We will be analzying our energy usage this year and then will be collecting data next Winter.  Our hope is to see a reduction in our energy usage as a result of the new windows and heating units along with a change in our habits.  This is so exciting!

We are still collecting glue containers, ink cartridges, used markers, cell phones and plastic bottle tops.  Look for these containers in the lobby.

Lunch Room Recyling
During lunch we recycle Capri Suns, Lunchables, and plastics.  If you would like to see the recycling in action please go to the PALS (Parents at Lunch) Sign Up Genius and find a date that would work for you to come in and volunteer.

* We are collecting Books for our upcoming Book Bingo Night.
*Thank you for supporting Crazy Hair Day on Friday!  See some of the great new styles below.

Did you know that President Herbert Hoover made the Star Spangled Banner the official National Anthem of the United States.  On March 3, 1931, he signed it into law. The website also provides details about the song and his role in making it official. It said that "The long journey from a poem written on the back of a letter to our country's national anthem took 117 years."
