Herbie High Fives

Posted October 17th, 2014 by Susan Nottoli

Pumpkin HerbieThe 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.

Principal’s Message – Illinois Legislative Proposal

Posted October 17th, 2014 by Susan Nottoli
Dear Hoover Families,
A legislative proposal that would rewrite the way education dollars are distributed in Illinois threatens the financial stability of suburban schools, including District 54.
The Illinois Senate passed Senate Bill 16 this spring, legislation that would dramatically reduce state funding to District 54 by redistributing general state aid to districts in other communities. While taxes in Schaumburg Township would not be reduced, District 54 would lose an estimated $12.5 million annually or about $1,000 per student. This would represent the largest loss to any school district in Illinois, and a decline of 79.5 percent in the amount of funds we receive from the state of Illinois. If Senate Bill 16 were to become law, it would greatly impact our ability to provide a quality education to our students.
When the Illinois General Assembly reconvenes in November, Senate Bill 16 is one of the bills expected to be discussed in the House. As taxpayers and parents, we want you to be informed and aware of the financial impact on our schools. To that end, I am attaching invitations to two upcoming forums regarding Senate Bill 16.
·         On Thursday, Oct. 30, Districts 54, 211 and 15 will hold a public forum at Schaumburg High School. At this forum, district representatives will share specific information about how Senate Bill 16 will impact our schools.  Click here for more information
·         On Tuesday, Oct. 21, State Sen. Matt Murphy and Reps. David Harris and Tom Morrison will host a legislative forum on Senate Bill 16 at the Metropolis Performing Arts Center in Arlington Heights.  Click here for more information
I would also like to thank our PTA for the information it shared about Senate Bill 16 at its general meeting earlier this week.
Have a nice weekend.

What is FLL? (First Lego League Club)

Posted October 16th, 2014 by Susan Nottoli

FLLFLL is a program of exploration designed to get 5th grade students excited about science and technology while teaching them valuable life skills. Working as a team, students will solve a real world challenge facing scientists and engineers today. In this project, students design, build, program, and test autonomous robots using Lego® Mindstorms® technology. The robots are designed and programmed by team members to perform a series of tasks relating to a real world theme. The team will participate in a competition against local teams from other schools to showcase the most innovative solution to the problem.
