Hoover sent a letter to each student’s home; please be on the lookout for this important information! If you would like to electronically access the documents that were sent, click the links below:
Families of incoming 6th graders, please know that the date of our orientation, called Summer Bridges, is on July 28th and 29th from 8:30-3:00. Please note that this date differs from the original announced dates. As always, please check the Events Calendar link in the tab bar above for the latest updated information on our events.
For more information about the Summer Bridges Orientation, see the invitation letter in English and Spanish. Access a registration form to complete in English or Spanish. (Again, please excuse the incorrect dates on these documents.)
Be sure to attend the date assigned for your student’s grade level to pick up his/her new schedule. Also available to accomplish during this time are: purchase P.E. uniforms and other Hoover gear; check out textbooks; take your school photo (no uniform required, unlike the make-up date in the school year!); and check out information about the 2015-2016 school year. Be sure to reserve at least 30-45 minutes to accomplish these tasks while you are at Hoover. All activities will be run out of the Main Building.

Congratulations to our outgoing 8th graders!
Students who need another copy of the forms for next year’s classes can download the Course Selections Form and Electives Course Catalog by clicking on the 2015-2016 Course Selections under the “Parent Tab”. Be sure to select the correct grade level. You may also watch (and listen to) the presentation that describes how to fill out the form. Incoming 6th grade families can watch the 7th grade presentation, as it is the most similar to the 6th grade form.
Selección de Cursos para el año escolar 2015 - 2016:
Los estudiantes que necesitan otra copia de los formularios para las clases del próximo año pueden descargar el Formulario de Selección de Cursos y el Catálogo de Cursos Electivos al oprimir la etiqueta de “2015-2016 Course Selections” en el marco del “Tab Padres”. Asegúrese de seleccionar el nivel del grado correcto. También puede ver (y escuchar) la presentación que describe cómo llenar el formulario. Familias entrantes del sexto grado pueden ver la presentación para el séptimo grado porque es la más similar al formulario para el sexto grado.
San José Unified School District is aligning academic counseling services to all students in both middle and high school. As part of our initiative, we would like to prepare students beginning in middle school for College and Career Readiness. One step in this process includes creating a professional e-mail that can eventually be used to correspond with colleges, universities, and other post-secondary opportunities available to your student.
In the Spring of 2015, your 8th grade student will be creating a professional e-mail account with the help of their school counselor. The main purpose of creating this e-mail account will be for your student to create a California Colleges profile that will save their career interests and college searches. Through this email account, the middle school counselor may send students information about age-appropriate college and career opportunities available to them, such as summer programs and volunteer opportunities.The student will enter their e-mail into the Infinite Campus Student Portal, and when the student enters 9th grade, they will begin to receive emails from their high school counselor regarding college and career information through their Naviance account. (Naviance is a web-based college and career readiness platform that allows SJUSD high school students to manage their college applications and process). As students transition to high school, and move towards their post-secondary college or career option, your child will be required to regularly check emails that colleges, universities, or workplaces may send with critical, time-stamped deadlines. We would like to prepare our students to understand the importance of this practice as early as 8th grade.
If you have any questions about this process, please contact your school’s academic counselor. An opt-out form will be distributed to each student that parents/guardians may fill out if they prefer that their child not have an e-mail account.
Here at Hoover, we practice Respect and Responsibility for School, Self, and Society, or what we call R2S3 (spoken: “R squared, S cubed”). Our expectations of how R2S3 looks can be found at: R2S3 Matrix
