HOOVER MIDDLE SCHOOL students works on various improvements

Hoover Middle School students were involved with making the school and the community better recently.

They worked from beginning to end from analyzing the needs of their school to making the positive changes. Projects were designed to benefit the community in some way. 

It could be classroom, school, neighborhood or city.  Some projects focused on beautification (tiles, landscaping, painting bathrooms). 

Others focused on functionality (outdoor seating area, new drinking fountain). Another focus of benefiting the community and bringing it together was the Relay for Life group and the students organizing spirit week.
