Mrs. Koverman’s class is a fun and inspiring classroom to be in. Recently in shared reading we learned all about how people are putting their efforts into making the world a “greener” place. We are also writing argumentative pieces to state our opinions about a strong belief that we have. In math, we are learning about the relationship between fractions and decimals. In social studies, we’re focusing on our state’s economy. In fourth grade for STEM we create and program Lego Robotics. First we build a rover out of Legos. Then we program it to do very cool and interesting things, such as going forward and backward and going in circles. All in all, in our opinion, Room 206 rocks!
We’re having a Holiday Spirit Wear Week in 2nd grade. Today was Polar Express Day in Miss Lee’s Room 214. Here’s a picture of the second graders in Room 214 in their pajamas holding their Polar Express ticket. They enjoyed listening to the book.
Staff members at Hoover were challenged to decorate a festive door in honor of the Holidays. This is a great way to spread holiday cheer at Hoover.
Partners Club students were busy making gingerbread houses for the holidays!
The 5th grade First Lego League team competed against 15 other teams at a local tournament. They presented a project on water conservation, displayed their robot coding skills, and demonstrated a positive attitude throughout the whole process. We are so proud of all their hard work.

During the 2017-18 school year, hundreds of thousands of students will reflect on a common theme “Within Reach” and create original works of art in the categories of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. Students may enter the national awards program through their school’s PTA.
The arts—and the National PTA Reflections program—support student success and serve as a valuable tool for building strong partnerships in your school community. Celebrate arts learning in your school community with Reflections.
Here are some of the projects created by our very own Hoover Students
