Howell Signing Day Ceremony Set For April 17th
Howell has a long history of developing student-participants that go on to participate and compete at the college level in their activities and sports. Currently nearly 250 students are competing and furthering their education at the college level. This number marks one of the highest rates not only in the State but in the country. On Wednesday, April 17th Howell will recognize the Class of 2019 seniors that will move on to continue their education and activity and sport at the college level with their 5th Annual Signing Day Ceremony. Information for this great yearly event can be found below. All of those that are participating in this event need to stop by the Activities Office this week to confirm attendance. For those that have not signed yet or who have not made a final decision, there will be a final Signing Day Ceremony in May and information will be communicated on that date following the April 17th Signing Day Ceremony. Congratulations to these young men and women on their decisions to further their education and activity and sport at the college level!
Date: April 17, 2019

Last Chance To Attend Spring Production Of Snow Angel Is Sunday
Sunday, April 7th is your last opportunity to catch the Limelight Theatre production of Snow Angel at Howell. A matinee performance will be held on Sunday with doors opening at 1:30 pm and the performance at 2:00 pm. Tickets are available at the door for $5.
The spring 2019 production of David Lindsay-Abaire’s play Snow Angel is set in the town of Deerpoint, Vermont during the biggest blizzard in 107 years. Just as the teenagers begin celebrating a day of no school , their teacher announces a special journal assignment to be completed over the Snow Day. Out of the snow, and the assignment, comes a mysterious girl named Eva. Eva needs help searching for answers but no one is quite sure what the questions are or where she comes from. 15 confused teenagers do their best to help Eva but her story is truly baffling.
Snow Angel is a funny and eerie tale of teen discovery, mischief, and acceptance told through journal entries and character interactions. Come join us and help us to figure out the mystery surrounding Eva.
