It's Been a Great Week at Hoover!
April is Child Abuse Awareness Month
April is Child Abuse Awareness Month. Some of our Hoover students, staff, and community members took a few minutes to pose for pictures and decorate our entrance with blue pinwheels to draw attention to the cause. Thank you to the Youth Services Bureau for providing Hoover with pinwheels. If you suspect a case of child abuse or neglect, reports can be made to the Indiana Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-800-5556.
