Dear Howard Families,
We have a lot of things to celebrate at Howard. I am sure you have already heard that our Walk-A-Thon was an extreme success. We raised over $14,000. This money goes directly back to your children and their teachers. Because of this tremendous outpouring of money, we are going to be able to continue to support our extra activities and provide teachers with materials they may have had to use their own personal money to purchase. This giving school community is just one of the reasons I am so proud each day to call myself a Howard Hornet.
The weather is changing so please be sure to check that your child has a coat when they leave the house each morning. My own children always believed that a sweatshirt or long sleeves were good enough when the temperature was at freezing. Thank goodness that now that they are in college and have to walk to class they make a better choice and wear their coat.
I am looking forward to seeing all of you at our annual fall Fish Fry. As usual the fish and chicken is going to be amazing. Please mark you calendars to join us this coming Friday evening for fish and fun!
Mrs. Rhonda Lanie, Principal
Howard Elementary School
