It's Been a Great Week at Hoover!

Hitting the Books!

This week students and their teachers have started to dive more deeply into our 4th and 5th grade curriculum. Fourth and fifth grade students are considered intermediate level learners. Not quite elementary anymore, and not yet fully ready for middle school. They are in that in-between zone where they are starting to test their independence, take risks, and experiment with their personality and dress. They are sometimes are very distracted. At this age it is not uncommon for some students to struggle with friendships and social relationships as students are maturing at different rates and don't always understand each other. This can be an especially messy time for students as they are rapidly growing and preparing for adolescence and colliding with the increased demands of the higher-level learning and expectations of school. Parents can and should check Power School for grades weekly. You can even set it up to send you daily or weekly updates on your students grades and progress. By checking Power School, you'll be able to see if your student is missing assignments, struggling, or showing growth in their school work. If you are unable to remember your Power School access code or login, please contact the office.

Electronic Report Cards

Hose, Nicholson, and Hoover Elementary Schools are transitioning to electronic report cards this year. At the end of the first 9 weeks, parents will receive their child's report card via the email address entered into Power School at registration. A copy of the report card will be available for print from the email and from the Power School website and app. Parents are encouraged to check Power School regularly for their student's progress. Student grades and progress are available anytime via the Power School website or app. Questions about grades or missing assignments? Contact your child's teacher.

Fundraiser Kick-Off

Thank you to everyone who participated in last spring's Race 4 Education fundraiser. While we had a great time and raised money to support our school activities, we fell short of our fundraising goal. In order to make up the difference, we are going to do our regular fall fundraiser. Please do not feel pressured or obligated to help with this fundraiser, we know many of you already helped last spring. However, if you would like to help again this fall, it would be appreciated. Funds from our school fundraisers support student activities and rewards, field day, teacher appreciation and extra supplies for classrooms, the fourth grade rat project, and more.

2019 - 5th Grade Camping Trip Information - Sept. 4-6, 2019

All Hoover 5th grade students are expected to attend the 5th Grade Camping trip at Camp Tecumseh in Brookston, Indiana. The dates for the trip are Sept. 4, 5, and 6. A parent information meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, August 28th at 6:00 PM. This meeting is mandatory for chaperones.

We had a wonderful problem this year-we had many more parents willing and able to chaperone than space available. Chaperones were selected by a lottery system. If you were not selected to chaperone, you will remain on the list. If someone who was selected becomes unable to attend, I will randomly select another chaperone to replace them.

Crawfordsville Schools has been proud to continue to provide this outdoor education experience for all of our 5th grade students for over 40 years!
