New Faces at Hoover!

Hello Hoover Rockets,
We have some new face at Hoover.  Ms Neville comes to us from Cass where she taught First Grade.  Ms. Janis came from a Charter School where she has taught Fourth Grade.  Mrs. Mayne taught Second grade at Cass.   Mr. Turner and Ms. Sato are our amazing Music Teachers.  Both of them also teach at Stevenson when they are not here at Hoover.  Each of these talented professionals bring positive energy, enthusiasm and a love for learning into their classrooms.  They have already discovered that Hoover is an Amazing School!

Technology at Hoover

Ms. Charochak's Class on Chromebooks
Students are already busy using our technology.  First grade started Technology Wednesdays.  The Chromebook Carts are brought into the classroom and the entire class has a Chromebook to use.  First through Fourth Grade students began taking the I-READY Diagnostic on a computer this week.

Message from LPS Transportation  

As we settle in to the school year, please bear with us as we make adjustments to our bus routes. We understand that late buses can be frustrating for everyone.

We would appreciate anyone with issues concerning Transportation, to email us at with your name, school, bus number and your concern. This is the best way to state your non-emergency concerns. We take all messages seriously and we are working very hard to run a smooth district-wide transportation system that safely transports more than 8,000 students to and from school each and every day.
Issues such as traffic, construction, settling into new routes, staffing shortages, can all cause unwanted and unintended delays. Working together, we can address the glitches that may arise in the system. Thank you for entrusting your children with us. Wishing you a great school year!

Did you know that dogs are not allowed at Hoover during pick up and drop off times or at the bus stops?  We have some students with allergies and some students who are afraid of dogs.  It can become a distraction for some of our younger students who want to leave their bus lines. I have heard several concerns from staff and parents. As a dog lover (I own a Puggle), I understand the desire to bring pets for pick up, but with so many children being released at once, it could lead to a pet getting startled and then an accident. Thank you so much for your understand and your cooperation.

Thank you to everyone who came to the first PTA meeting Tuesday night! We had a great turn out and loved hearing some new ideas. The next PTA event is Outdoor Movie night on Friday at 7:00 p.m. We will be featuring the movie Trolls. Look for more details to come home next week. 
Also thank you to those families that signed up for the after school program Nuts About Science. The class is now full and will start Thursday, September 28th, and run for 7 weeks.
