HOOVER MIDDLE SCHOOL band kicks off Relay for Life


The 2018 version of the Relay for Life was held in Heritage Park this weekend, and the Hoover Middle Marching Band kicked off the event in a rousing fashion.

The event is held each summer around Coan Lake, starting on Saturday morning and running through the night before ending on Sunday morning. U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell was a featured speaker and City Council Pro Tem Tim Woolley gave some wonderful opening remarks directly from the heart.

Thousands annually participate in the event, which raises money for the American Cancer Association.

BLAIR MOODY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL fifth graders spent week at camp

What a great week spent at Camp Michindoh! 

Blair Moody Elementary School fifth graders had a wonderful week experiencing outdoor education lessons, team building and many new challenges & adventures.

Shout out to Moody teachers who wrote each student a card of encouragement, which they received at camp.

Sitting on 250 beautiful acres of rolling hills, wetlands, streams, and a private spring fed lake in Hillsdale, Michindoh's property provides an ideal setting. Numerous recreational options including a multi-court indoor gym, a 320-foot waterslide, boating, paintball, high ropes course, fishing and swimming.
