A Message from Mrs. Ankrom
Dear Hoover community,
We hope you have been out enjoying the beautiful spring weather! There has been a lot going on at Hoover as the year winds down. We cannot thank the amazing Hoover PTA enough for the treats they’ve given Hoover staff this week for Teacher Appreciation Week. Our teachers have been honored with a breakfast, summer sand pails filled with tasty treats, baked goods provided by the Hoover Bakers, a delicious lunch, and finally, each staff member received a festive beach towel for summer fun! We are extremely lucky to have such caring and involved parents at Hoover.
Other highlights of the week have been iWalk/Bike to School. Although the weather was cloudy and rainy, we had a lot of students who got their exercise in and walked or biked to school! Officers from the Schaumburg Police Department were here handing out pencils and greeting students. Thank you to the PTA members who attended the PTA Scholarship Dinner. We enjoyed listening to the accomplishments of our former students and were very impressed with their speeches. We are looking forward to our 6th grade dinner tonight. Our 6th graders have been working hard all year and we are proud of them! Please read below for other important District information.
