Snow and Star Fun!

Hello Hoover Rockets!

The students had a lot of fun playing in the snow this week.  We also enjoyed learning about the Stars with Mrs. Lipinski in the Star Lab.

March is Reading Month

Mrs. Linn went into every classroom and read this week to kick off March is Reading Month.  Look for the list of events in the Hoover Highlights next week.

*Please continue to bring in your adult and children books for Book Bingo.  We will be using these donated books for prizes (please no baby or board books)
*Come shop at Barnes and Noble on Sunday and a percentage of sales will be returned to Hoover.  Dine out at Noodles and Company and Hoover will also earn back 25%.  If 50 people show they have the Noodles and Company App on their phone, Hoover will earn 30% instead of 25%.  So download the app and enjoy dinner at Noodles and Company on Sunday.

*Check out our first episode of LIVE FROM THE DUMPSTER.  Our Eco-Action Leader Mr. Grose will be making reports on our paper recycling project.  So far we have earned $350!  We are working towards the $800 Grant total.  

Why add a leap day?: Leap days are needed to keep our calendar in alignment with the Earth's revolutions around the Sun.
It takes the Earth approximately 365.242189 days – or 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 45 seconds – to circle once around the Sun. This called a tropical year. Without an extra day on February 29 nearly every four years, we would lose almost six hours every year. After only 100 years, our calendar would be off by approximately 24 days.
