It's Been a Great Week at Hoover!

February is almost over! We are well into the long stretch of learning between winter break and spring break. Amazing amounts of knowledge building is happening at Hoover every day. While the weather can be very unpredictable, continue keeping predictable schedules with your students. Proper nutrition, adequate rest and homework time are key to being successful in school. If you haven't checked your student's mid-term progress yet, now is the perfect time to log back into Power School and check to see how your student is performing. If they are starting to fall behind, there is plenty of time left in the grading period to get them back on track. Stay strong and steady, spring break will be here before you know it!


If you must make a transportation change, you need to call the school office at 362-2691 by 2:00 PM. Any transportation changes after 2:00 PM will not be permitted no matter the situation. Any changes for after school club transportation made after 2:00 PM will need to be directed to the Discovery phone at 376-3204. Teachers CANNOT accept any same day transportation changes through Class DoJo.

Notes from the Nurse

February is National Cancer Prevention Month. Individuals can cut their risk by maintaining a healthy lifestyle: eating healthy, maintaining a healthy weight, and exercising. According to the CDC, research shows that being overweight can raises a person’s risk of getting some cancers. Diet, exercise, and weight control prevent 1 in 3 cancers. Healthy habits start in childhood, so it is important to encourage these habits to your children at a young age. Not only are diet, exercise, and weight control important, you must also protect your skin! An estimated 1 in 5 people will develop skin cancer, which is the most common type of cancer in the United States. Be a positive role model to your children: eat an apple, go for a walk, and wear your sunscreen. If you would like more information on how we can prevent or control cancer, see the link below:
