July 28th Update

Hello Hoover Rockets,

I stopped at Hoover today and got a tour of the progress.  I have added some pictures to the right. This week they are installing the generator, countertops, and the new entryway.  It is so exciting to see all the changes.  We can't wait to get back into the building to prepare for September 6, 2016.  This is the first day of school!  The district sent out a tentative calendar.  I have included the dates on the Important Dates list below as well.

I reminded students to try and read everyday this summer.  It is not too late to start!  My family and I just went to the library and picked out some books this week.  Our Hoover Rockets can still use their RAZ kids accounts over the summer.  Perhaps you have taken a vacation and have some great pictures that you can incorporate into a scrapbook.  Students can write a short sentence for each picture.  This is a great way to practice writing and sequencing.

I have received some emails about Parent Connect.  If you are not able to retrieve a password for Parent Connect then that means we have a different email in our system.  Therefore, you need to email Mrs. Holmes ( to have your email updated in our system.  We have a sent a letter with your child's report card with instructions for setting up your password.  REMEMBER you will need to access Parent Connect in the Fall in order to find out your child's teacher assignment.

Summer is a great time to start cutting and collecting Box Tops for next year!
