Susan Yee, Hoover PTSA president, invites everyone to Hoover High School's Festival of Learning from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday. All current and prospective Hoover families are invited to see what students are learning in their classes, take a look at and talk to teachers of next year's possible classes, and see old friends from the community. This is not a time for parent conferences. We hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity to show your child that you are interested in their education by attending the Festival of Learning.
