Spring Fever

Hello Hoover Rockets!
Spring break is almost upon us and our students and staff are ready to enjoy some spring weather next week. I know many of our families will be spending time together and perhaps going on trips. Wherever you are spending your spring break, I hope it's a happy time and that some good memories are made! We had a fun week wrapping up our March is Reading Month activities.  We look forward to seeing the students when they return on Monday, April 4.  Remind your child to keep reading even after Reading Month has ended!

This is Ruth McNally Barshaw who visited Hoover on Monday and showed the students how to draw illustrations and use their imagination in story writing.

 March is Reading Month Assemblies 

Today we had an assembly called the Magic of Reading.  The students heard the beginning of stories to peek their interest and then Doug Scheer told them the name of the book to look for in the Library.  It was a lot of fun!

*Thank you to our PTA for our amazing assemblies and ice cream sundaes today.  
*Thank you Hoover Rocket families for participating in our PJ Day.  We raised over $250 today. 
*The Five Below Fundraiser continues until 3/27.  Bring your flyer and Hoover will get a percentage of your sales.
*Mark your calendar for our next PTA meeting which will be April 14, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.
*4/24 Hoover Detroit Tiger Game 

Please take a moment to watch this week's edition of Live From the Dumpster.

Did you know that Hoover partners with the Churchill High School Football Program to provide "Big Brothers".  Once a week starting in April a few football players will be coming to partner with some of our 4th grade students.  You might seem them on the playground playing catch or basketball with students.  You might see them tutoring students or practicing math facts with our Hoover Rockets! Thank you Churchill!
