PLEASE JOIN US FOR THE
HOWBERT GUIDING COALITION MEETING!
Thursday, Mar. 10th
8:15 a.m. & 5:00 p.m.
In person at Howbert
Virtually at Webex
Information: Mid-year growth and achievement, Next year staffing
Questions: Upcoming assessments, District leadership changes
Input: Ideas for school donation, Strengthening family partnerships
We are beginning to gather preliminary information to plan for next year. One piece of information that is valuable at this time is information on student enrollment intentions for next year. This information helps make sure we are staffed properly and contributes to the process of creating classes.
We would appreciate you completing the 2-3 minute questionnaire below. Thanks.
Please support your child to do their best by:
- making sure your child gets good rest.
- making sure your child eats a good breakfast.
- avoiding appointments during testing.
- giving your child lots of love and support.
For those families that are currently on permit at Howbert Elementary, it is not necessary for you to complete an additional permit form. Once you have had a permit accepted, it remains in effect through 5th grade at that school.
Students that will be in 6th grade next year will need to go through the Choice Open Enrollment process if the student is not going to attend the assigned neighborhood middle school for where the student resides.
If you have any questions, please consult the D11 Enrollment/Registration website or call the front office at Howbert (328-4200).

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.
OPEN BOARD POSITIONS
Are you interested in getting more involved? We have several board positions open that need to be filled in order for the PTO to run effectively:
- Vice President

If you are interested in one of these positions, please let us know at a meeting or email howbertPTO@gmail.com .
Howbert is seeking volunteers to help with a variety of activities in our school! Each week, we will list volunteer opportunities here. There will either be a link to sign up or you can always give the school a call and we'll be happy to help.
