Churchill Field Hockey Team
We are looking for ball girls (in elementary or middle school) for our home varsity field hockey games this season. If your daughter is available/interested in being a ball girl for us this season, please let me know which date(s). We'll also be looking for ball girls for any home playoff games we may have in the postseason (TBD). SSL Hours are awarded for volunteering.
Our regular season home games this season are:
9/23 - 5:15 game time
10/01 - 5:15 game time
10/07 - 4:00 game time
10/11 - 5:15 game time
Ball girls should arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of the game and come straight over to the player bench area across the field to check in with Coach Cay, Coach Shelby, Coach Margaret or Coach Candy. Games are usually about an hour and 20 minutes. Your daughter would not have to pay for her admission, but if you choose to stay to watch the game from inside the fence, you may be asked to pay $5.
Email coach with interest to volunteer at email@example.com.

Hoover Community Focus
Dear Parents and Guardians,
My name is Linda Weiner. I have been designated as Hoover’s Community Focus Teacher. I have been a teacher at Hoover Middle School for seven years. In addition, my two daughters attended Beverly Farms Elementary School, Hoover Middle School and Churchill High School. In my new role, I look forward to serving as Hoover’s liaison to the parent/guardian community.
I am a very excited about this new position as I hope to bridge communication between the Hoover parent/guardian community and the teachers and staff at Hoover. Many activities are planned this 2019-2020 school year.
In addition, we are planning a school community field day; providing community service by partnering with other schools in MCPS whose students may be in need; a parent child book club; and STEM night.
Together we share a common goal; we want the best for your child. My hope is by working collaboratively, parents, guardians and the Hoover staff, will build a strong relationship. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or ideas.
