Grade Repair and Credit Recovery Options

  • A first semester Edgenuity Course is incomplete.
  • A grade of 64-69 was earned in a Core or Spanish course.
  • A grade of 0-63 was earned in a Core or Spanish course.


Our annual Poetry Out Loud competition is coming up fast - the date is Tuesday, January 15 immediately after school in the auditorium. The winner will move on to Georgia's regional competition for a chance to compete at State and then at National. The top prize at National is over $10,000!

Please see Ms. Quintal, Ms. Farriba, or you ELA teacher for information. Pick a poem from the POL website and be ready to recite it during our competition.

Behind the scenes...

The first ever Broadcast Journalism Club at Howard High School is now producing videotaped daily announcements. In the past, announcements were broadcast over the Public Address system each morning. Now, every day's videotaped announcements are shown during 5th period, AND can be viewed from the HHS website:

Look for the links under the menu Our School, then Daily Announcements.

Most of these students have branched out beyond their comfort zones and have learned new skills. Some students never wanted to be in front of a camera, but are now anchoring at least once a week; some never knew anything about editing the video clip, but are now wrapping us up in record time.

Pictured left to right are: Chandler Daniel, Eunice Chon, Peter Chon, Larry Barnett, Emma Quintal, Harley Patterson, Keely Testa, Abby Mitchell, Makenzie Carroll, Charles Burney and Sarah Wise.
