Hello Hoover Rockets,

3rd Grade Jiffy Trip

Ms. Fortier and Mrs. Cannell's class went to Jiffy on Monday and got to tour the plant.  They enjoyed some Michigan Made Products as well.  Thank you to the PTA for helping to pay for the transportation for this amazing field trip.

Art Fair

Our creative Hoover Rockets had over 1500 pieces of art on display Thursday night.  Thank you to the parent volunteers who helped hang art, and Ms. Mitchell for her wonderful talents!

Science Fair

WOW!  We learned a lot about the scientific method!  Our students experimented and learned which paper towel is the most absorbent, which gum has the longest lasting flavor and which nail polish brand lasts the longest.  Thank you to Mrs. Testa and Mrs. Wilson for organizing the 2nd Annual Hoover Science Fair.

Music Concert

KG and 4th Grade Students will be performing in our music concert on May 9th at 6:30 here at Hoover.

Did you know that 90% of the energy used by your washing machine goes to warming its water.  Switch to a detergent formulated to work best in cold water (Tide, Purex, Gain, and persil all make cold-water varieties)?
