It was great to see our special teachers and support staff joining Class Zoom Meetings. Lots of smiles on our Hoover Rockets faces! We miss everyone. Thank you to our amazing PTA for the signs for Staff Appreciation! We hope everyone is healthy and planning on getting outside for some sunshine and exercise this weekend.
There will be no class meetings or assignments posted on Monday, May 25 in observance of Memorial Day.
Student Personal BelongingsDepending on when the Stay at Home is lifted, we will have a Student Belonging Curbside Pick Up. Hoping for the week of June 8th. Look for more information to come in the future.
Eco-ActionOne of the unique features of Hoover is that we are a Green Flag school in the Eco-Schools USA program, in fact the first school in Michigan to receive this award! Through this program, our Hoover Eco-Action team has pursued 5 main pathways: Healthy Living, Energy, Waste & Consumption, Schoolyard Habitats, and Biodiversity. Our recycling program, gardens, outdoor classroom, exercise and hiking trails all fit into this framework. We have also partnered with General Motors to collaborate on green projects through the Eco-Green program.
We realize that not everyone is familiar with the Eco-Schools program or the pathways that Hoover is working on, so we created an Eco-Action Google Classroom that everyone is welcome to join in order to learn more. You can find all kinds of information about the program, including slideshows describing our work, videos we made, descriptions of each pathway and how we’ve achieved it, and also current activities to engage in such as gardening and virtual field trips/camps with local parks and nature centers. There is a discussion board where students can comment on activities they are engaged in during this time apart from each other. We hope that you check it out & find some fun activities for your family!
The code to join the classroom is hv6nzfp.

Virtual KG OrientationWe will be emailing the KG Orientation Power Point and will be offering a Zoom Meeting on June 3rd for families to ask questions and meet some of the staff. Look for an email next week with more details.
Do you know how many hours of sleep your Hoover Rocket needs? It is easy to slip into bad sleep habits while we are home and on a different schedule.
