Introducing the new Hoover Proud Blog

We are excited to share the new Hoover Proud Blog with you.  This will be a great way to share with you some of the exciting events that are happening at Hoover.  We will be able to post pictures, videos and student articles.  We will send the link on Sundays through email.  Be sure to bookmark this site so you can return to it and any time.

Hoover has earned the BRONZE AWARD through the Eco-Schools USA program.  This week we had the Chairman of the Board of Directors for the National Wildlife Federation, Bruce Wallace and the Senior Director for Education Laura Hickey join us at our PTA Meeting. We are working on plans for a Butterfly Garden, conducting an energy audit this month.

Learning with our own HOOVER PARENTS
Mr. Grose came in and played the bagpipes for our 4th grade music classes.  The students enjoyed learning about the instrument and hearing the amazing power it can produce. Thank you to Mr. Murphy and Mr. Grose for organizing this great musical experience.

Dr. Petrov came in and taught our 3rd grade students about molecules, tornadoes and other elements of physics.  Ask your 3rd grader about the balloon experiment.  Thank you to Dr. Petrov and Mrs. Cannell for arranging this engaging afternoon.
