Hoover band members went caroling in different classrooms throughout the school this week and also performed a concert at Keller Junior High on December 10th. On Friday students enjoyed a school-wide sing along organized by Miss Bernacki and Miss Young through the Hoover studio
The following students names were drawn from the Herbie High Five Eggs today. Each week students earn Herbie High Fives by displaying proper PBIS expected behaviors at school. When they receive a high five card they put them in the blue eggs located in the main office and the Library. Each week Mr. Schmelzer pulls names from these eggs. Students then go down to his office to receive their prize after announcements are over.

Hoover’s fourth grade students learned some facts about the Friendship Village ladies this week. For example, one of the ladies climbed 1,076 stairs to the top of the Gateway Arch because the tram was not working and it was still being constructed. Another lady talked about how her family owned a candy shop for many years. Another other woman lived five minutes from a huge coal factory. The fourth lady lived next to a bunch of hills that eventually got dug up, but were replaced.

The 6th graders in Mrs. Archibald’s 6th grade class decided to get creative for their most recent PBIS classroom celebration. In groups students created and ran different Minute to Win It games. We hope you enjoy the pictures of our celebration as much as we did!
Fifth grade students are learning to play guitar in music class. First order of business if for them to learn the basic cords that help them to play some classic rock songs.
In room 115, third graders have been busy, busy, busy! So far, it’s been a year of lots of learning and lots of fun! In addition to developing meaningful relationships within our classroom family, students have done a tremendous job motivating each other to be respectful and responsible learners. From studying inspirational historical figures to delving into STEM in our rocketry unit, students are having a “blast” problem solving and thinking critically about science and our world. This week, we are building Pop Rockets! Students created a Pop Rocket using a template and then used their own creativity and ingenuity to build their own design of a rocket with a nose cone and fins. Rocket engineering at its finest!
The Hoover Harmonics Club traveled to Friendship Village to sing Christmas carols last week. These 5th and 6th grade students have been preparing these songs for weeks for this event.
Good Job Harmonics!
