character recognition awards!

Each year, the Robert O. Finley Committee for Character Education recognizes one student from each grade level in the Hoover elementary schools for their exemplary character. Each homeroom teacher nominates a student as their class nominee. Then, one nominee is selected to represent the grade level at the awards ceremony on March 19th! All recipients and nominees will be celebrated at school on March 6th at a popsicle party. We are proud of all of our students who strive to work hard, be respectful, and demonstrate kindness to others.

Genius Hub Community Volunteers

Big picture

Dear Parents,

Last year, we worked hard to change an underutilized area of our school into a place where students can learn from our community members. We need your help! You have talents, areas of interest, and exciting things that you do that students would love to learn. This could include a hobby or craft, a book club, an interesting job, a helpful skill such as organization or presenting, or even just something fun! For example, last year we had community members present on math games, photography tips, playing a unique instrument, filming movies, becoming a surgeon, commercial banking, etc.


The Genius Hub needs you during the months of March to May to volunteer to work with a small group of 6-8 students for 30-40 minutes and teach them something that you love or that inspires you. You can do this once a month if you are interested in coming more than once. Once we get your name through our form, we will contact you to set up a time to come. This will be a great way to help our school teach students innovative, creative, and practical ideas that can help them in life. To sign up to volunteer in our Genius Hub, click the following link:

Please feel free to forward this link to community members who might be interested in sharing their expertise but might not be a parent of a Greystone student.
