Hello Hoover Rockets,

Thankful for Hoover!

Thank you to everyone who donated canned goods for the Livonia Goodfellows.  Monday will be the last day to donate canned goods.

Fire Safety

This week our 4th grade students had a wonderful presentation by the Livonia Fire Department.  They brought 3 trucks and reviewed Fire Safety with the students.  Every family should have an escape plan that includes how to get out of the house safely and a meeting place.   They also reminded the students about STOP, DROP, and ROLL.
