Reaching for the Stars!

Welcome Back! 

Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to educate and care for your child.  It is a
joy and privilege to serve as the principal of Hoover Elementary School.

I would like to extend a sincere invitation to you to be an active partner this year in the
education of your child.  Our staff is an amazing group of caring and dedicated professionals
who are anxious to work with you, and most importantly, your child.  We are fortunate to
have an active and involved parent community which truly supports our students and staff each
day.  I  feel so lucky to be a part of such a wonderful team.

Know that we are here to team together with you to create an engaging and motivating school
 environment for every child! 

Open House & Curriculum Night for Parents

Curriculum Night is an essential informational meeting for parents of students attending Hoover
Elementary School.  Staff members prepare vital information on curriculum & instruction;
classroom routines; plans for the year; parent involvement; student expectations and
home/school communication.  It is 
scheduled very early into the school year so that we
may begin on a great note together
.  We look forward to welcoming you!

This year we are combining Curriculum Night and Meet the Teacher into one evening,
Thursday, September 18th
KG, 1st & 2nd Grade Curriculum Night: 5:30-6:15 The L.P.S. Foundation will be sharing
 information with Kindergarten Parents about the 
Competitive Edge College Savings Program,
at 5:30 in the Community 
Room.

Open House 6:15-6:45
All Hoover Rockets will be able to show off their school and parents
can learn about PTA committees.

3rd & 4th Grade Curriculum Night : 6:45-7:30

The Curriculum Night portion of the evening will be a “parents only” session held in the
classrooms.  Supervision will be provided in the Multi-Purpose Room, where our Hoover
Rockets will enjoy an assembly with Jim Basketball Jones.  He will focus on two of our
Climate Character Traits; Respect and Responsibility.

The Open House portion of the evening is an opportunity for your children to “show off” their
classroom and school.  Be sure to visit all of your children’s “specials area” teachers and learn
about their art, music, physical education and library media classes, as well as his/her
homeroom.  Mrs. Pickerel, Mrs. Van Esley Mrs. Baughman and Mrs. Bice will also be available
for parents during this portion of the evening.
 
Come Grow With Us this year at Hoover!  See you soon!

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.
