If you have not yet discovered the rewards of volunteering, I am
in full agreement with authors Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen.
May I also encourage you to get involve? PTA is always on the lookout

Here's what's happening in the Hoover cluster schools.
HOOVER HIGH SCHOOL
The PTA Reflections contest in under way, PTA President Doris
Kouyias said. The theme is "Signs of Courage." Students can enter
artwork, music, writing and photography. Rules and entry forms are
being sent out to all teachers and staff.
Please mark your calendars for May 15, 2004, for the 75th
anniversary of Hoover High School in Glendale. Hoover is the only
school to be named after a president sitting in office -- our 31st

This will be a fabulous celebration of 75 years of rich and

school office at 242-6801.
