Spring Testing Begins Next Week for 5th Grade
April 9-11 - 5th Grade
April 16-17 - 3rd and 4th Grades
April 23-24 - 2nd Grade
Here are a few reminders to help your child be successful during their testing time. Be sure students arrive at school in plenty of time to not be rushed before testing. Also, during testing, students will need a pair of earbuds or headphones. These cannot be wireless as they do not work with the device when the testing program is being used. Please make sure your students have a working pair of earbuds or headphones with them each day. Also, make sure they get plenty of rest and eat a good breakfast before they begin testing which will help them do their best!
Did you know we have earbuds and headphones available in the school store? Earbuds are $1.35 and headphones are $3.00. The school store is open on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 7:15 - 7:35 am.

Denim and Dining to Benefit Hoover City Schools Foundation
Fun for a Cause! The Hoover City Schools Foundation is hosting its 4th annual Denim & Dining event on April 12th at Noah's Event Venue off Acton Road. The location is new, but it will still be a party with great food, entertainment, and silent auction bargains! The proceeds raised from this event enable the Foundation to provide grants to Hoover City Schools teachers and schools. The Foundation granted over $61,000 in 2018. Together, we can improve the educational offerings for our students, and enable teachers to find new and innovative ways to help our students learn.
