Mrs. Kumar, a yoga instructor and Hoover parent, has been donating her time to allow Hoover students to experience the benefits of yoga.  She has been coming to P.E. classes to do yoga sessions.  Students are learning more about diaphragmatic breathing and various yoga poses to strengthen their bodies.

Classroom of the Week – Third Grade Room 112

This year in room 112, we’ve become orange frogs! We’ve really implemented the Happiness Advantage and Positive Psychology from Shawn Achor in our classroom. We keep gratitude journals each day and take time to celebrate each other and our successes. We’ve been filling up our Hot 100 quite a few times for positive behaviors as well. In reading we are working on finding the main idea using key details and the text to support. We’ve also been working on comparing and contrasting ideas both explicitly and implicitly stated within the text. In writing, we are working on informational writing and are researching a famous person to write their biography. In social studies we’ve been working on how our community is part of something larger, but also diving into how we impact the environment around us with our human footprint! We even traced our own feet! Rockets are flying across the room during our rocketry time! We’ve worked hard creating our 3-2-1 Puff rockets. In math we are all working on learning our multiplication facts! We keep busy in room 112!

Chrome Books Quizlet Live App in 6th Grade

Ms. DeSalvo’s math acceleration class displayed their knowledge of exponent properties today. Through the use of an app called Quizlet Live, the students worked in teams to find the simplified version of the exponent expression on. It was necessary to work together as only one of the four teams had the answer at any given time. This experience will surely go down as one of the best acceleration times thus far!

  • Movie Night – November 10

Picture Retake Day is Tuesday, October 24th!

Important: For students absent on picture day and those who want to take a new picture.

The preferred method of payment for Lifetouch is online.  Students may bring payment on retake day https://my.lifetouch.com/mylifetouch/#/

Picture Day Code: RN037026Q0 – Extra forms/envelopes can be found in the office.

If parents/students received pictures and are unhappy, students need to bring the COMPLETE picture order & envelope with them on retake day. All students will be photographed for class composites and yearbook. PTA volunteers will bring students down to the gym for pictures.

If the online order is placed within 2 days of retake day (10/26), the order will still be delivered with the rest of retakes. If the online order is placed after 10/26, the pictures will be shipped to the student’s home and they will be charged shipping.

Empty Bowl Night at Hoover

Art Teachers, Mrs. Wiskirchen, Mrs. Wright and Mrs. Wolfe taught Hoover’s 6th grade and Churchill’s 5/6 students to build clay bowls. The finished bowls will be used as part of a soup supper fundraiser that will support the food pantries at both Keller and Mead Junior High.

The Empty Bowls Project, the brainchild of art teachers John Hartom and Lisa Blackburn, uses ceramic arts to fight hunger. At each event potters and other artisans donate handcrafted bowls. Empty Bowls started as a classroom project, but the movement has spread across the United States and to at least 14 other countries. The basic idea for Empty Bowls is straightforward:

  • Participants create ceramic bowls, and at a later date serve a simple meal of soup and bread.
  • Guests choose a bowl to keep as a reminder that there are always Empty Bowls in the world.
  • In exchange for a meal and the bowl, guests contributes a recommended minimum donation.
  • The event sponsor selects a hunger-fighting organization to receive the collected donations.

We had a lot of fun doing the Empty Bowl night!
