Principal’s Message January 29, 2018
Dear Hoover families,
Happy Monday! It’s a beautiful day outside with snow lightly falling.
Here are some important dates to remember:
- Feb. 5 – PTA Meeting at 7:00 p.m.

5Essentials Parent Survey
All District 54 parents are encouraged to take the Illinois State Board of Education’s 5Essentials Survey by Jan. 31 at https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois. The parent survey is only 26 questions. It will allow parents to share their thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness and help us guide school improvement.
Focus on the Foundation – January 2018
The District 54 Education Foundation’s programs primarily serve students from families with financial needs. In District 54, nearly one-fourth of students qualify for the federal free lunch program, which for a family of four means an annual income of less than $32,000.
A key focus for the Foundation is providing breakfast to ensure that students begin their day ready to learn. Thanks to the community’s generous support of our Food 4 Thought campaign, in January 2018 the Foundation will be funding breakfast programs for students at 18 of our 28 schools, serving nearly 1,400 students in need. Thank you to our 2017-18 all-school sponsors: Woodfield Area Children’s Organization, Rotary Club of Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates, Tate & Lyle, Chick-fil-A of Schaumburg/West Schaumburg, and Schaumburg Park Foundation. Thank you also to the staff of District 54, who have donated enough money through the payroll deduct program to sponsor a school.

District 54 Multicultural Event 2018: Performance Information and Interest Form
Each year the Department of Language and Culture, along with the Schaumburg Park District, presents a Multicultural Event. This event takes place at the Community Recreation Center and showcases the diversity represented by the students of District 54.
Preparations are already under way for this year’s event, which will take place on Saturday, April 14. We look forward to seeing many of the cultures in District 54 represented and are looking for students, or groups of students, who would like to perform.
If your child is interested in performing, please visit the Department of Language and Culture homepage for details and complete the Performance Interest Form by February 9. If you are unable to complete the electronic form, paper forms can be picked up in your school office.
