Dr. Giehll's Message


Dear Parents, Guardians, Family, and Visitors:

On behalf of the outstanding teachers and staff of Hoover Elementary School, I would like to welcome you to another wonderful school year!

At Hoover, we pride ourselves on maintaining high expectations for student achievement, while focusing on the individual needs of each child. Our school motto, “Where Every Student Counts” embodies our belief that the successful social, emotional, and academic development of our learners begins by establishing meaningful relationships in a safe and nurturing environment. Hoover has an outstanding reputation for providing a variety of educational opportunities, including art, instrumental and vocal music, physical education, Spanish, technology and engineering, and more. We value and challenge each student in our commitment to the mission of the Mt. Lebanon School District, “to provide the best education possible for each and every student.”

Home-school communication is a key factor to building success at school. This website will serve as a general guide to all families and students at Hoover Elementary. I hope you will find it a valuable resource to access information such as school updates, a staff directory, lunch menus, supply lists, and important school-related forms. There is also an abundance of information about the Hoover PTA, including ways that you can become involved in our school.

The Hoover community enjoys a rich history of academic and cultural excellence. It is both an honor and a pleasure to be your principal. I look forward to partnering with you to make this an exciting and successful year for our students.

Welcome to Hoover!


Nicci Giehll
