4th Grade Students are Learning Recorders

Students in Mrs. Koverman’s 4th Grade class are learning how to use recorders with Miss Bernacki during their music time.  They learned their first song entitled “Walk Like a Mummy”

Classroom of the Week – 6th Grade Room 211

In Room 211 we have been exploring ancient cultures.  So far we have learned about ancient Mesopotamia and the first written laws, ancient Egypt and mummification, and are now learning about ancient India.  In December we visited the Field Museum in Chicago to learn more about mummies.  We are currently researching and writing about famous women who have had a positive impact on society.  We will also create a poster about that woman.  Literacy is interesting right now.  We are reading legends from the past in which the main character goes on a quest.  Some characters in these legends successfully fulfill their quests, and some do not.  Themes include accepting help from others, and accepting that you may not achieve your end goal, but the effort you put in will benefit you. We feel all of the work we are doing with poetry is really beneficial.  We are looking forward to the rest of the year, and the exciting new things we will be learning.

School District 54 Multicultural Event

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 (CRC) and showcases the diversity represented by the students of District 54.  During the event, student groups have the opportunity to give performances that reflect various cultures.

Principal’s Message – January 12, 2018

Dear Hoover families,

Happy Friday! It has been a great week at Hoover. The students all returned to school rested and ready to learn.

Here are some important dates to remember:

  • Jan. 15 – No School
  • Jan. 16 – PTA Meeting at 9:15 a.m.
  • Feb. 5 – PTA Meeting at 7:00 p.m.

District 54 Cold Weather Response Plan

In order to help parents better prepare for the severe cold weather and snow we often get during winters in our community, I wanted to share with you the District 54 Severe Cold Weather Response Plan. Though District 54 makes every effort to keep our schools open and operational, circumstances beyond our control oftentimes dictate school closings.

Dress For the Weather

Please send your child to school each day with warm winter gear, including a winter jacket, hat, and gloves. When there is snow on the ground, only students with snow pants and boots are permitted to play in the snow. Students continue to go outside for recess during the winter season. Recess will be indoors only if the temperature is zero or below with the wind chill.

Alexander Calder in 5th Grade Art

Mrs. Wiskirchen’s 5th grade classes learned about Alexander Calder and his use of materials to create moving sculptures called Mobiles. The students learned how to balance their wire “blades” that have a “sail” that will help the sculpture move with a breath of air or pushing it with their finger. The students were really excited about the S.T.E.A.M. components and the building skills used to create their sculptures.
