Student's Opinions Matter

Hello Hoover Rockets,

This week, at Hoover we began to survey our students, to identify how they feel about their educational experience.  Mrs. Linn will take each class into the Computer Lab to complete the survey over the next couple weeks.

Today our 4th Grade students attended an assembly to learn how they can save energy at home.  Each 4th grade student is bringing home an energy saving kit that you can use to reduce your water consumption, and electricity.  If our 4th grade families complete the Home Worksheet and return them to Hoover, each classroom could earn $100 from DTE.  Please look for the Worksheet in your kits that came home today.  We need 80% returned.  This amazing experience was provided at no charge to Hoover thanks to DTE and Consumers Energy.

March is Reading Month

Today are Teachers swapped classrooms and read to students as part of our March is Reading Month Celebration!  Please remind your Hoover Rocket to read everyday!

* Thank you for participating in the Barnes and Noble and Noodles and Company fundraiser last weekend.
Five Below will be giving 10% of our Sale back to Hoover if you present the flyer between March 18-March 27.
We are still collecting books for our Book Bingo Night which is Wednesday, March 16th 6:00-8:00 p.m.  All families are invited to come and play Bingo!

This week's live from the Dumpster episode.  We have more students helping now with our Friday paper weighing and recycling efforts.

Saving Money Lighting represents about 20% of your home's electricity bill. Switching from incandescent bulbs to ENERGY STAR®-certified CFLs and LEDs is the easiest step you can take to save on your energy bill and help the environment.
Switching to LEDs and CFLs Switching from old-fashioned incandescent bulbs to CFLs and LEDs is an effective, simple way to save energy and money. CFLs and LEDs use 75% less energy without sacrificing light output. CFLs last 10 times longer while LEDs can last up to 25 years longer.     DTE Energy Saving TIps
