Band Hosts Parent Preview

The Howell Band gave Viking parents and fans a sneak peek at their 2017 show this past Friday at their annual "Parent Preview." The very young and talented Viking Marching Band had several great performances and also got the parents involved by inviting them down onto the field to learn more about how they prepare for the show. Thank you to the very large crowd for coming out to support our band as they get ready to kick off the fall season. If you missed the Parent Preview, you can click the link below for a short video of one of their performances. Good luck to Chris Miller, his staff and the Band this season!

Girls Volleyball Volunteers At National Night Out

At Francis Howell, being involved in an activity, club or sport is more than just competing or being involved in that activity. All activities, clubs and sports regularly take part in outreach opportunities in the community. The benefits for not only the young men and women in our programs are great but also are beneficial to the events and programs that we support. The girl's volleyball program participated in the National Night Out event last week in New Melle. Players and coaches participated in the National Night Out event which provided learning opportunities on crime and drug prevention, community relationships and strengthening partnerships with First Responders. Congratulations to the girl's volleyball program for representing Howell at this great event!
