Reaching for the Stars!

Welcome Back Hoover Rockets!

Communication is key! We are working hard to communicate with our Hoover
families to keep you connected. The partnership we share with you makes
such a positive impact on the school experience for your child. We
encourage all students to be respectful, responsible, kind, proud, and safe
members of our community. Families, staff, and our community, work together
to ensure that your child will have a positive and productive school
experience. It is our privilege to educate your child every day at Hoover
Elementary School.

• Thank you to our PTA Executive Board for their help in starting up the
school year. We have such a talented, energetic, and committed group of
parents working with us this year. They have already been very busy
planning events, assembling packets, decorating the lobby, organizing
practical fun, fundraisers and keeping our sign messages up to date.

• For families new to Hoover, you will be seeing this key communication piece
 “Hoover Highlights” every third Tuesday through e-news or on our website. If
you need a hard copy to come home via backpack mail with your child please
notify Mrs. Holmes (734-744-2730) Our purpose at Hoover Elementary School is
to make learning our first priority. As a principal, I will support that goal by
being present in classrooms, observing teaching and learning. Therefore, I may
not be immediately available in the office when you visit, but I will always
contact you within 24 hours. If there’s an emergency, please leave a message
with Mrs. Holmes and she will notify me. 

 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.
