Hello Students,

 

Here are a few friendly reminders for next week! 

 

1) No school on Monday 1/16 to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.. Dr. King was a champion for civil and human rights and his brave actions led to profound changes in society.  Dr. King said this about education, "The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education." ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.  

 

2) Tuesday and Wednesday --  Fall block periods followed by graduation homerooms.

  • Tuesday = 1, 2, lunch, 3, graduation homeroom;
  • Wednesday = 4, 5, lunch, 6, graduation homeroom.

The adapted schedule will begin Monday, 1/23.

  • 1/23 Monday -- 1st , 2nd, lunch and spring advisory periods.
  • 1/24 Tuesday -- 3rd, 4th, lunch, 5th, 6th and Advisory. 
  • Wed-Fri -- 6 periods.
  • Schedules will be handed out during homeroom Tuesday. 

3) iPad check during homeroom this week!

Dear Hoover Students,

 

Our goal at Hoover is to create a safe and positive school environment where students learn and thrive. We expect all of our students to demonstrate Hawk Habits of Safety, Responsibility and Respect. On Tuesday and Wednesday, we held assemblies to remind students of the Hawk Habits. These habits are expected of Hoover Hawks and when we ALL follow these, the entire school will benefit. The Hawk Habits are listed below and I have highlighted a few that we need to work on particularly around technology, kindness, and appropriate language.

 

Hoover Hawks are digital citizens. We DO NOT video or take photos without permission. We DO NOT post unkind rumors or video on social media that can cause harm to other students or to the school. Hoover administration and counseling are addressing students individually and in groups who do not follow these expectations. Remember, phones are not a right at school and the school can keep your phone and return it to your family following a conversation about proper use. The same goes for iPads.

 

This time of year is difficult for students sometimes - it is raining a lot, students are stressed about high school and summer is a long way off. It is very important that we are kind to one another. It is also important to use appropriate language and demonstrate how intelligent, talented and thoughtful we are.

 

Hawk Habits are below and displayed around the building.

 

Go Hawks!

 

Ms. Sinkler

Principal

Hello Hoover Community,

 

Thank you for your support and flexibility regarding our bell schedule. Students and teachers have adapted to the changes with true Hawk spirit. Whenever there is a change, it is important to get feedback and check on how it is working. We very much want to give students voice and empower them to have positive impact on their environment.

 

Our 8th graders completed a civics project that surveyed students on the current block schedule while another group looked for creative solutions to a couple issues that we felt important to address.

 

The following was presented to students this week. The adapted schedule will begin on January 23rd.

 

NOTE: School day start and end times remain the same; Monday 9:00-12:50 and Tues-Fri 9:00-3:30. Early Morning PE Mon-Thurs at 8:10. 

 

Best-

Carline Sinkler
