Messages from Principal Lefere
Schools and families have essential roles to play in promoting children’s positive development and academic performance. When educators and parents work together as partners, they create important opportunities for children to develop social, emotional, and academic competencies.
I want to THANK YOU for being a partner with the staff at Howbert Elementary. Together we have the power to make great things happen for our students.
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.
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).

Storm sewer work at the northbound 31st Street / Fontanero Street intersection is complete. Northbound 31st Street is scheduled to reopen Monday (Feb. 21) after the intersection is paved. Weather conditions impacted the original work schedule.
Fontanero Street utility work complete
Fontanero Street utility work is now complete between 30th and 31st Streets. The contractor will improve the work zone on Fontanero Street by opening a second lane westbound and allow access to Pleasant Street. Temporary surfaces will be present until Fontanero Street is paved in early April once weather improves with warmer temperatures.
