On April 3rd, the Parents’ Association and Hoover School hosted a parent/child program. Outragegihiss Pets entertained the students with exotic and interesting live animals. From snakes to armadillos and a tarantula named Charlotte, students were in awe about these live creatures. Our very own Bergenfield High School honor students chaperoned Hoover students and played a game or two of BINGO with our children. Click the title to read more.
On Wednesday, April 24th, the Middle States visiting team enjoyed spending an afternoon with members of the Hoover School Community. They met with our students and learned about all the things that make Hoover School a special place. Parents and teachers also met with two Middle States members and shared their knowledge and experiences about Hoover School. We thank the Middle States team for their time and visit.
The Third and Fifth Graders have been investigating plants and living organisms. Pictures here are from a lesson where the Third grade students taught the Fifth graders about seeds that they germinated. Then the Fifth grader students taught the Third graders about vascular plants. We observed celery that had been soaking in colored water. Students saw how the vascular tubes support the plant and carry water and nutrients to all parts of the plant.
