Hoot N' Howl

Dear Hoover Rockets,

We had a great week at Hoover.  Thank you to all the staff, parents, grandparents and Hoover Alumni who volunteered to make the Hoot N' Howl a huge success.
Students were dancing, Mummy wrapping Mr. Tony and Mrs. Linn and playing fun games.

Halloween Obstacle Course
Mr. O turned the Multi-purpose Room into a spooky Halloween Obstacle Course for Physical Education this week.  Students climbed, jumped, crawled, hopped, scooted and ran through the course while listening to scary Halloween music.

Outdoor Classroom
Ms. Cannell's class read about social studies in the Outdoor Classroom last week.
 2nd Grade Field Trip 
The 2nd grade classes went to the Matthaei Botanical Gardens this week.  They had a wonderful time exploring outside even in the wet weather.  Thank you to our PTA for providing funding for the transportation!

Did you know our 4th graders dissected Owl Pellets today to learn more about the Food Chain?  Then at the Hoot N' Howl we saw a live Owl in the Library.  Great things are happening at Hoover!
Thank you to everyone that clipped, counted, and bagged our Box Tops. We collected 9191 Box Tops which translates to $919.10 for our Hoover Rockets. The winning classes in each grade that collected the most Box Tops are: Moritz, Eckerle, Mayne, Cowher and Lipinski. Thank you so much for your participation and the winning classes will receive their choice of a popsicle or popcorn party.

Our final numbers are in for the Winter Coat Drive. Thank you for all the coats you donated! We collected 144 coats, 98 of which were "winter coats" and are eligible for the drive. The coats left Hoover Wednesdayafternoon for the Detroit Marches Organization. Then they will start to be passed out to homeless Detroit Public Schools students to help them stay warm this winter. The remaining coats collected will benefit families right here in Livonia via the LPS Clothing Depot. THANK YOU for being so generous!Thank you, thank you for continuing to be amazing!

Scary animals in the LMC!
The Hoover PTA would like to extend a BIG thank you to all the Hoover family and friends that donated resources and time for this year’s Hoot-n-Howl. We work hard to plan events that the students don’t want to miss and we couldn’t do it without YOU! Margaret Mead said:  "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world: Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.” It’s your generosity that makes the Hoover community feel more like a family. Your continued efforts show our students how much we care and model what true community looks like for them. We appreciate our volunteers so very much!
