Principal's Message

Welcome to Hoover Middle School!

Hello Hoover Families:

My name is David Costa, and I am the grateful new principal at Hoover Middle School. I am excited to lead this amazing school, as it is the place where my career in education began 20 years ago. This school is a very special place for me. The principal, when I was a teacher at Hoover, reminded all students and staff every morning that “Hoover is the home of your better future.” This message has resonated with me my entire career in education, and I commit to making it true for all our students.

Working collaboratively with all community members, we hope to accelerate the learning of all our students in the areas of Social Emotional Learning, math, and literacy. We hope to continue the work of transforming Hoover Middle School into one of the best in LBUSD. Thank you for supporting our teachers and staff in this important endeavor. Working together, we can achieve our goals and meet high expectations. 

Lastly, I wanted to close with some important dates:

  • Thursday, August 25th - 6th Grade Orientation and 6th Grade Picture Day

  • Wednesday, August 31st - First Day of School (Minimum Day @ 1:18 p.m.)

  • Monday, September 5th - Labor Day

  • Friday, September 9th - 7th & 8th Grade Picture Day

  • Monday, September 19th - Make-Up Picture Day

  • Thursday, September 29th - Back to School Night (Minimum Day @ 1:18 p.m.)

  • Thursday, October 6th - HS Back to School Night (Minimum Day @ 1:18 p.m.)

As we get closer to the opening of the school, we will send out more reminders and some introductions to our new staff members. Also, please be reminded that school will begin at 8:00 a.m. and dismissal time is at 2:40 p.m. on regular school days.

In service,
