Welcome to Hoover Elementary!

Principal's Message

It is my pleasure to welcome everyone back to another great school year! I am honored to continue in service as the principal of Hoover Elementary School. It is a privilege to be part of a community where parents, teachers, and students care for one another and strive to build positive relationships in support of academic and social growth. 

As principal, I strive to foster an environment where students feel safe and are equipped with the tools they need to grow. I believe in student-centered learning and empowering educators to accomplish what they have been charged to do. Staff members are excited to support the students’ enthusiasm for learning and we strive to present challenging activities that support that enthusiasm.

Our teachers spend hours planning and creating classroom activities that are based on best practices in education. Teachers carefully analyze academic data to determine students’ current skill levels and effectively meet them where they are before moving them forward.

I hope that you will find our website helpful and informative. The information posted on the website can also be found in my weekly newsletters. Dates and times for all events and activities are included on the calendar. Additionally, you will be able to view updates and announcements on our Twitter and Facebook accounts.

I am truly looking forward to seeing all the children upon their return. Please feel free to contact me at [email protected] with any questions or concerns.

Once again, welcome back! Let’s make it another great year at Hoover Elementary School, Home of the Hounds!
