Hoover Store Volunteers Duplicate

Hoover School Store Signup

Thanks for volunteering at the Hoover school store! 

We are open, M-F, during lunchtime. 

Please feel free to invite others to sign up! 



Please note:  

All parent volunteers are required to complete an online training module about recognizing and reporting child abuse and neglect, before working with students.  It is on the MCPS website, and takes about 30 minutes to complete. Please use the link below to take the module before coming to work in the Hoover School Store. They will e-mail a confirmation of completion to you. Please print it out and bring it to the school office, before your first shift. This training is valid for 3 years.


Scroll down to Volunteer Training Module on Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect; click the red box labeled “Online Training for Volunteers and Contractors: Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect”.


There are 2 available slots per shift; it's always fun to volunteer with a friend!

The Hoover School Store is located just inside the lunchroom, on the left, formerly the security office.

Store Hours

10:40 - 11:45 (6th grade + the first half of 7th grade)

Opening Store

1.  Sign in at the front office, to volunteer, and ask for the key to the pad-locked, red cabinet where the cash box is located. 

2.  Ask an administrator, security, or someone from building services, to open the store for you. 

4. Roll the dry erase board/open sign out so it's visible and plug in.

5. Retrieve the cash box from the red cabinet. 

Closing Store

1.  If you are on second shift, please arrive by 11:45 AM to relieve first shift.

2.  When the lunch period is over, return the cash box to the red cabinet and lock the cabinet.

3.  Make sure both doors to the store are closed and locked.

3.  Return key to front office, when signing out.


  • All items are marked with a price and all prices are in $0.25 increments to make giving change easy.
  • We do not charge sales tax.
  • Occasionally, students have checks.  They can be made out to Hoover Middle School PTA.
  • The school store does not sell P.E. uniforms; they must be purchased on line via the Hoover Middle School website.
  • Please communicate any needs (cash box change, merchandise requests, suggestions) by note in the cash box or by email: [email protected]
  • For immediate issues, text/call 301-461-9381 anytime.



There are occasions when students see the opportunity and take advantage of it.  We ask that only 6 students at a time shop.  If you are not comfortable with the amount of students in the room, ask them to step out and wait in line, or have a student grab security or administration to do it for you.

If you see a situation in progress, you can always tell security. If you are comfortable with it, you might ask the student:

  • Have you made a decision about that stress ball?
  • That eraser will be 50¢; would you like to purchase anything else?
  • Will that stapler be all for you, today?


The school store is a lot of fun for the students (and volunteers ;) )! You get the chance to see your kids in their own space and they'll be happy to see you in school too!

We cannot stay open if we are not a fundraising source for the PTA.
