It's Going to Be a Great Week at Hoover!


Hoover fourth graders have been busy learning about Veterans Day, patriotic songs, and what it means to be an active service member or veteran. We are privileged to have the opportunity to honor the special Veterans who are in our students lives at our annual Veterans Day program on Monday, November 11.


All students need to be prepared to dress for outdoor recess and walking on the track in the morning everyday. Students are not permitted to stay inside during recess unless the school receives documentation from a physician that they should stay inside.


Do you love kids? Are you looking for a fun job with a flexible schedule? Be a substitute teacher! Go to and check out the qualifications.

Highlights from our after school program this week include:

Spanish Club students were working on singing the numbers from 0-100 to increase fluency and talking about recent family customs and celebrations.

Students from Honor Choir sound amazing. This week they began working on their next new song and I was impressed with how quickly they were learning their parts.
