Let’s Talk About Student Success!

The Student Success Act marks a turning point for education in Oregon. When fully implemented, our state will see an additional $1 billion investment in schools each year. This investment will provide new opportunities for every student in our state, particularly students who have been historically underserved.

You have an important role to play. We (Corvallis School District) need your input to help develop a plan to best meet the needs of our students and our community.

Hoover Running Club (AHA Club) Kick Off

The Hoover Running Club (AHA Club) is ready to kick off for a second  year at Hoover.
AHA Club runs during the regular school day and is open to all students to participate by running or walking laps during two recesses a week – and having their progress tracked via a punch card.
We need parent volunteers to help during those two recesses a week.  You will be tracking students as the complete a lap and using a hole punch to mark the lap card.

Please go to https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080A4CACAD2CA3F58-aha1 and sign up for a slot (or multiple slots!) to help keep AHA Club ‘running’!  It’s a great way to support students to keep moving and be active!
