District Calendar

Welcome To
Hoover Elementary School


It is my esteemed pleasure to welcome our parents, community members, and our students to the 2018-2019 school year at Hoover-Schrum Memorial School District 157. My name is Semaj Coleman. I am thrilled to be serving in the capacity of Principal of Hoover Elementary School and partnering with our staff to nurture our future leaders.

Our district theme for this school year is “On the Rise”. Nowhere is this more evident than in the hallways of Hoover. There were several “success stories” that we are very proud of. Most importantly, the students at Hoover have shown double-digit growth gains in both MAP and PARCC Mathematics and Reading from the previous year. In addition to this, for the first time ever, our Hoover math bowl participants brought home a trophy for ranking in the top 6 schools in the South Cook Math Bowl. The Hoover Hounds are definitely “On the Rise!”

Research has shown that students are most successful when there is a strong partnership between the school, community, and their families. Having said this, we welcome our families and our communities to become part of the Hoover Elementary family. Parents and family members are encouraged to volunteer to be book readers, field trip chaperones, etc. We also ask community members to assist in the safe passage of our students to and from our school building every day. We have a stronger impact when we work together, but more importantly, our students achieve more when we work together.

Welcome again to the 2018 – 2019 school year. If there is anything that you need from me, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your child’s education!

Best wishes,

Semaj Coleman
Principal, Hoover Elementary School
