Wild About Hoover

Greetings Hoover Families,
We have had an amazing year. We would like to thank everyone
for all of the support that was given this year. Staff, parents,
volunteers and students have made this a rewarding year.
I have enjoyed reading, talking, laughing and meeting with
students, providing leadership to our staff and communicating with families.
Each day has been an opportunity to build relationships with Hoover Rockets.
Thank you to those of you who have stopped in and introduced yourselves,
emailed, called or sent a note. Hoover Elementary School is such a wonderful
community.
This year at Hoover will be one I will never forget. Here are a few highlights:
• Getting dunked in the dunk tank
• Working with Kindergarten students to identify letters and sounds
• Watching students prepare and plant the Bio-diversity Garden
• Walking in the Walkathon in the Fall
• Listening to students read
• Reading persuasive student letters about increasing recess times
• Observing teachers and students in the classroom
• Playing four square on recess
• Sharing climate character videos in the lunch room
As we close the year, I want to share with you my tremendous gratitude for
entrusting your children to us. Our Hoover Rockets are amazing young boys
and girls. I enjoy them so much! Additionally, I am awed by the efforts of our
staff each day and am thankful for their commitment to the children and to
one another. It is my privilege to serve as the principal of Hoover Elementary.
I wish each of our boys and girls, as well as their families, a summer filled with
SUNSHINE and memory making events. Whether you are enjoying the Livonia
Spree, rides on your bikes, trips to the Dairy Barn or travels across America, I
hope your days are happy ones!
We are looking forward to a great 2017/18 school year!

 Fondly,
Julie Linn Principal

My family and I are looking forward to this Thanksgiving weekend. We are having family over for dinner after going downtown to watch the parade. I remain grateful for this special school community, of which I am privileged to serve as your principal. Our Hoover Rockets are very important to me, and they are cared about a great deal. I hope the coming weeks bring you and your family an opportunity to create memory-making moments and to share happy times together.

 

50th Celebration

Thank you for attending and volunteering at our 50th Celebration. It was an amazing evening. We had over 500 guests attend. I am still looking through all the pictures on the thumb drive from the photo booth and trying to recognize all those smiles in disguise. We were thrilled to see Mr. Otto, Hoover’s first principal. Mayor Kirksey enjoyed his birthday present and special cupcake. The Stevenson ensemble musicians played for two hours. It was a magical evening down memory lane. Hoover has been and will continue to be a magical school environment that is joyful and engaging for all students, staff and family.

 

Take care,

Julie Linn

 

I would like to again remind our community that our Hoover Helping Hearts Fund is available to any family in our school community. Many folks have encountered job loss, wage decreases, increased financial stress and more. For some, it has been minor—others a more pressing burden. So that we may in some small way support our families, the Hoover staff created a Helping Hearts Fund approximately 7 years ago. This fund is intended to be used privately and with extreme confidentiality to help families who need a hand. It may be clothing or food needs, a new pair of glasses for your child, help at the holidays, etc... The holidays are especially a difficult time during financial stressplease know we are more than happy to help. There are two people who may be contacted are either me (Mrs.Linn) or Mrs. Bice, our EST provider. We do not share with the staff or anyone in our community, information regarding the recipients of our Helping Hearts Fund. Please let me know if we can help you and your family in any way. My e-mail is jlinn2@livoniapublicschools.org and Mrs. Bice’s e-mail is jbice2@livoniapublicschools.org . As I often tell our boys and girls, “At Hoover Elementary we care about one another” - we truly mean that.

Mission Behavior Focus for December

BE KIND - Next month, we will be focusing on acts of kindness. Students could share pencils, provide care when friends are injured, walk peers to the office, open milk containers for younger students or help classmates zip coats.

 

Music Concert

First and Second grade students will have their holiday concert on December 10, 2014. First graders will perform at 5:30 p.m. and second graders will perform at 7:15 p.m. A note will come home with those students with more details. We are looking forward to kicking off the holiday season with our Hoover Rockets.
