Parent-Teacher Conferences

  • If you have not had the opportunity to schedule a parent-teacher conference with your child's teacher, please contact the teacher or the front office and we will make sure you get an appointment.
  • When attending parent-teacher conferences, it is required that you wear a mask into the building and that you complete the health screener. We will have masks available at the school.
  • We will welcome families through the front entrance for your scheduled conference. Some teachers may allow you entry through their classroom door.

Picture Re-Takes Rescheduled

  • Picture re-takes had to be rescheduled to Friday, November 5th.

Halloween Costumes

  • We have a costume closet available to children who are in need of a Halloween costume. If you are interested in this, please accompany your child to Room 4 after school 2:30-3:00 this week. Call the office with any questions!
  • Please look over the Halloween Costume Guidelines (linked below) if your child will be wearing a costume on Wednesday. We want every student to have a fun and safe experience!

From the Art Studio...

Art To Remember orders due by November 11th!

Once again, we've teamed up with Art to Remember to raise additional funds for the Visual Arts Program at Howbert and provided life-long keepsakes for your friends and family! Art to Remember transfers children’s artwork onto wonderful keepsake items, such as mugs, necklaces, phone cases, keychains, and more. The products make great gifts for the holidays!

You can view your student(s)' artwork and order at:

Just search their name or use the code in the yellow bar at the bottom of their order information sheet. Order information sheets went home on Thursday.

You can also upload more artwork or order from past years!

Thanks for supporting the Visual Arts at Howbert! Please reach out with any questions:

Howbert PTO


The Howbert PTO meets the 2nd Thursday of every month at 4pm. We will be meeting in-person but will also have a virtual option for those that would prefer to attend on WebEx.

*** Our next meeting is on Thursday, November 11, 2021 at 4pm. This meeting is very important because we will be reviewing and determining teacher grants. If you are interested in being on this grant committee, please email ***

We would love to see you at the meetings! It is a great way to share your thoughts, hear about happenings in the school and support the Howbert staff and students. And you don't have to commit to anything! Come to as many or as few meetings as works for you and your schedule.

Computer Recycling...for a cause!
