PENNY WARS: April 16th-20th Hoover will have our annual Penny Wars. The contest will decide what animal the PTA should adopt at the Detroit Zoo. Our Hoover Rockets, and sometimes community members, bring in their spare change and place it in one of two jars. This year’s two animal choices will be the giraffe or kangaroo. The winning animal will be adopted and a plaque will be placed outside their habitat at the zoo. This is a fun contest for the students, may the favorite animal win!!!
