Mrs. Ritter is sponsoring a "Chess Club" for any student that is interested in playing chess against their fellow students at Hoover. Please listen carefully to the morning announcements to find out when the Chess Club will begin their sessions. The club meets after school for one hour in Mrs. Ritter's classroom. Arrangements need to be made to have your child picked up at the conclusion of each club activity.

Our walk club has involved all of our students and many of our staff members here at Herbert Hoover Elementary School since we began walking with the club in October 1998. We have now walked over a half million miles together, including an imaginary trip to the moon and back again! Our walk club mileage total as of 08/29/11 is 627,045.0 miles, including 22,000 estimated summer vacation miles.
Families are encouraged to walk together (10,000 steps/day). Out of school mileage totals may be e-mailed to or shared with Mr. Wofford at any time during year.
Welcome back, every step counts so let's get moving!
