Hello Hoover Rockets,
Star Lab
Thank you Mrs. Lipinski for bringing the Solar System right here to Hoover.  Students in 1st-4th grade enjoyed learning about the stars and planets in the Star Lab.  The classes scheduled for Thursday will be going next Thursday.

Last week Mrs. Lipinski's and Mrs. McCurryś class held their Wax Museum.  The students read a book about a famous person and then dressed as that person and shared important facts.

March is Reading Month 
It is that exciting time of year, when we celebrate the joy and love of reading in special ways…March is Reading Month! Of course, our Hoover Rockets are involved in reading and related activities each and every day. However, during this month, our committee of staff and parents work together to plan activities which engage our boys and girls in new and exciting ways!  This month we will celebrate the enjoyment of reading as…  “Wild About Reading”.
Some great things have been planned to give an extra focus toward reading. Each week there will be a highlighted event.

Do you know the Seven Things Every Child Needs to Hear?
1.  I love you
2.  I am proud of you
3.  I am sorry
4.  I forgive you
5.  I am listening
6.  This is your responsibility
7.  You have got what it takes
Looking for a way to get involved in your child’s elementary school experience? Consider joining the Hoover PTA board.  It’s truly rewarding to play a role in organizing all the exciting activities and events offered at Hoover.  It’s also a fun way to meet other parents and make new friends.  Whether you work inside or outside the home doesn’t matter at all.  If you can find a little extra time in your schedule to volunteer, consider this opportunity.  If you have any questions, you can contact Tracey Schenk 

Don’t miss out!  Be sure to write down your student’s memories from each grade along with a baby picture and 5 photos of your student while at Hoover.  You can send pictures in an envelope or email them to or       
This will be a wonderful keepsake for your Hoover Rocket.
