Greetings Hoover Families,

It is that exciting time of year, when we celebrate the joy and love of reading in special ways…March is Reading Month!  Of course, our Hoover Rockets are involved in reading and related activities each and every day.  However, during this month, our committee of staff and parents work together to plan activities which engage our boys and girls in new and exciting ways! Below you will find these highlighted for you from the committee:

This month we will celebrating the enjoyment of reading as we are…

“Wild About Reading”

Some great things have been planned to give an extra focus toward reading. Each week there will be a highlighted event.

         March 3rd       Magic Carpet Theater Assembly

         March 9th        PJ Spirit Day and All School Read In  

         March 15th      Book Bingo Night

March  17th     Hoover Teachers Swap & Read

         March 24th     Guest Reader Day

Guest Reader Day is always a special event at Hoover.  We have invited noted guests from our community to share special books with classes.  We are still looking for some more celebrity  readers.  If you have a connection to a famous person who would be willing to read to our Hoover Rockets please email me their contact information.  

We are continuing to focus of Kindness and Empathy this month. Please encourage your Hoover Rocket to be kind and look for opportunities to practice kindness throughout their day.
Kindly,

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.
