PTA Welcome

Welcome to the 2021-22 School Year!

On behalf of the Hoover Parent Teacher Association (PTA), it is our pleasure to welcome you to 2021-22 School year. It’s been a tough year and half for all of us, especially our kids. We are so happy to return to campus with COVID precautions in-place.

The PTA understands many kids will be returning in person after a long period of isolation and we want to make this transition a positive one. We are planning social play-based events for our kids to feel comfortable with peers and teachers, and also just being at school again! Parents will not be allowed on campus for PTA related events. Events will be strictly for Hoover students only with a handful of PTA volunteers as hosts.

The Palo Alto Children’s Theater is planning a production and will be back at Hoover this year. All students grade 3 to grade 5 are welcome to audition and participate. Technical roles will also be available. Details will be shared in a few weeks.

ABC readers will also be back in the classroom, offering stories and lessons on social emotional learning. We are looking to offer after-school activities such as Chess, Spanish, Basketball, Art, Dance and more. Please see the (tentative) after school activity schedule for details.

Please join the PTA – membership is $10 per adult. Please also contribute to our PTA. Our suggested donation is $250 per child for the year. These funds are crucial to enhancing our children’s’ experience on campus. Property tax dollars do not cover these extras! Happy children get better grades, test scores, better self-esteem and confidence.

Lastly, as much as we want normalcy, current conditions call for continued vigilance. The School will let us know when/if changes are necessary. Please stay tuned via Konstella and school emails.

We are strong together! Let’s go Hedgies!

Best.
Ira Pamnani
PTA President, Hoover Elementary

IMPORTANT NOTES

Konstella

Konstella is our official communication platform, and a one-stop point to find out what’s happening in your child’s classroom as well as the whole school.

We request that you download the Konstella app, set up a personal profile, and add your child(ren) to their assigned class(es) so you don’t miss anything! See support info and contact included in this packet.

One-Check Form

For your convenience, the PTA has combined all donation items onto one single form included in this packet. Please review the supplemental document explaining each item. You can donate by check or via Konstella. We prefer checks to avoid online processing fees. Please mail checks to the School or have your student drop off in the School office. Parents, please minimize going on campus. Thanks for your understanding and support!

Volunteer Opportunities

The PTA offers many opportunities for service, leadership and community building. Open roles include Traffic Coordinator, ABC Reader, and Room Parent. With only a handful of parents al- lowed on campus, volunteering with the PTA is a great way to stay involved. See flyer included.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT. GO HEDGIES!
