LEGOLAND Fieldtrip- 2nd Grade

Posted May 28th, 2015 by Susan Nottoli

legoWhen we went to LEGOLAND we visited lots of sections.  First, we went to a room where we built bridges and saw which one could hold the most weight.  Next, we went to a room where we could build cars and race.  There was a bouncy house and a ride!  Then, we watched a movie called “Spellbreaker.”  We went to the workshop and built a Lego brick.  We went on a dragon ride and lastly went to the jungle gym.

Hoover Students Help Each Other!

Posted May 27th, 2015 by Susan Nottoli

The 6th graders in Mrs. Delay’s class came down and helped third graders in Mrs Koebernick’s class edit their autobiographies. They did an amazing job! Sixth graders were so patient and kind. Mrs Koebernick was so impressed by all of the guidance they gave the class.

It was a fabulous time editing!
