Understanding the Common Core State Standards
Gate and Electronic Visitor Security System (EVSS)
- When you approach the intercom box, have your Identification out and give the name of your child as you will be prompted to do so by the office staff
- Hold your Identification close to the box so that it can be easily seen as your name will be match to the student name in the computer
- Upon verification, you will be 'buzzed' in. Proceed directly to the office.
Be patient with the new process. It is in the spirit of safety.
After School Tutoring
After School Tutoring
Hoover’s first round of after school tutoring will end January 23, 2020. Session two will begin on February 4th and end on June 4th. The focus of After School tutoring is to help those students who did not show proficiency on the 2018-19 SBAC exam. Students attend on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 3:45 p.m. until 4:45 p.m. During this hour, students will be given strategic lessons in English Language Arts and Math. Students are also allowed time to work on homework assignments.
Saturday Enrichment was held October 12 through November 26 and will resume on February 8, 2020. This Enrichment program is designed to expose our students to ELA and Math using different enrichment activities. During our first session, students had the opportunity to do science experiments and work in our garden.
Our next sessions will be on the following Saturdays:
Parent Engagement Opportunities
Hoover is committed to providing parents with resources to help support their child at home and in school. We offer monthly workshops to parents to help increase their awareness of how to help their middle school child.
