Meet Ms. Kanoon – Interim Assistant Principal

Dear Hoover Families,

What a great week it has been here at Hoover! The staff, students and families have been so friendly and welcoming. I feel very fortunate to be a part of this community until the end of the year.

I spent my entire career in District 54 where I worked for thirty-five years. I taught at a variety of schools and have experience in different grade levels. I taught at Campanelli, Collins, Armstrong and Stevenson Elementary Schools as well as at Mead Junior High. I have taught 2nd, 5th, 6th and 8th grades. I was an Assistant Principal at Armstrong Elementary School and finished my career as Principal of Einstein Elementary School.

I have been retired for two years. I travel and spend time with family and friends. Some things I enjoy doing are: projects around my house, running, reading and doing yoga. I have one son who actually went to Hoover, though it was a while ago! I am so happy to be working with Mrs. Ankrom and to be helping out at Hoover Math and Science Academy.

Please feel to contact me at maribethkanoon@nullsd54.org or call me at 847-357-5847.

A Message from Mrs. Ankrom

Dear Hoover community,

Last week, Hoover students celebrated Read Across America and Dr. Suess’ birthday. It was fun to see the students dress up as their favorite story book characters which lead to great conversations! This was a perfect week to celebrate the love we have for reading at school and at home. We encourage all families to take time to celebrate Read Across America week and set aside time each weekend and curl up with a good book and/or read together as a family.

Celebrations:
Our Rube Goldberg Club went to a competition last weekend and won first place with their machine! They are now headed to state and we can’t wait to hear their results. Good luck!

We would like to welcome Maribeth Kanoon to Hoover. Maribeth is a retired District 54 principal who will be supporting Hoover students and staff full time from now until the end of the year. Welcome, Miss Kanoon!

This week we celebrated Engineering week! Each teacher had an engineering based activity that they had their students participate in. On Friday, we had over 20 volunteers come into the classrooms and do a presentation that was math and science based. The students enjoyed watching the presentations and especially loved asking questions at the end! Thank you to all of our family members who took the time to volunteer and present in their child’s classroom.

Engineering Week – Mrs. Franz Sixth Grade Class

Engineering day was fun! We had a special guest speaker from Capital One to teach us about credit cards and even a visit from Mrs. Rizmani! She came to tell us about her past careers as an engineer and research scientist. She even let us look at different things under the microscope. The picture you see is actually a piece of skin from our class let gecko, Echo! We started the day working in teams to build structures out of pipe cleaners and thinking like engineers.
