Annual Themes

There s Always Room
Hoover’s 2018-19 Theme

“There’s Always Room” is based on the book “The BIG Umbrella” by Amy June Bates & Juniper Bates.

This book was written by a mother and her daughter who came up with this idea one day while sharing an umbrella.  The big umbrella spreads itself wide to keep ducks, bears, ballerinas, kids, adults and all types of people safe and dry.  This story teaches us that “There is Always Room” for others.  

In this art project, every student in the school is under the umbrella showing that we are all unique individuals who can make room in our day to include others.   How can we “make room” for others at Hoover and in life?

We re All Wonders

Hoover's 2017-18 Theme

“We’re All Wonders” is based on the book “Wonder” by  R.J. Palacio.

“Look with kindness and you will always find wonder!” After all of the classes read this WONDERful book, we made a choice to always “choose kind”. If you look closely at this art project, each student decorated one quarter of a circle with something that makes them a wonder.  What makes you a wonder? 

In My Heart

Hoover’s 2016-17 Theme

“In My Heart” is based on the book “A book of feelings” by Jo Witek.

In My Heart was our very first school wide theme when we opened Hoover in 2016.  All of the students, staff and parents were heading out on a new journey with lots of different emotions to share.  This art project features a self portrait of every student in the school by grade level ~ can you see all of the different emotions on their faces?
