Hello Hoover Rockets,

Thank you to all the parents that attended Curriculum Night and Open House on Tuesday.  It was a huge success.  Our Hoover Rockets enjoyed the magician and parents are prepared to make this a successful school year for their children.

Girl Scouts Information Meeting
On Monday, September 23rd Girl Scouts will be having an information meeting at 7:00 in the Community Room at Hoover. 

Did you know that we have many new staff at Hoover this year?  Each week we will feature a staff member in this section of the blog for you to get to know.
MICHELLE GUERRIERO Physical Education Teacher
My name is Michelle Guerriero and I grew up in the Detroit area, attended parochial schools K – 12.  I earned my bachelors degree from Central Michigan University and my masters from Wayne State University.  I have 1 sister, 1 brother and 4 beautiful nieces and one adorable great niece.
My hobbies include exercising, especially running, golfing, and watching or playing most sports.  I watch most Detroit professional teams and attend games when I can.  I am a Michigan State fan but my allegiance is with CMU.  I enjoy reading, baking and spending time with my family.

I look forward to meeting teachers, students & parents in the Hoover community.
