UPDATE: OUTDOOR EDUCATION PATHWAY APPLICATION

The Howbert staff, students, and community have shown great support for us applying to be designated as an outdoor education pathway school!


  • A team is currently working on completing the application that is due Friday, February 18th.
  • One step in the application process is a forum in which a team from Howbert will be interviewed by district personnel. We will need two parents to serve on our team for the forum. It will be scheduled for Monday, March 7th or Tuesday, March 8th (no school for students). The forum will be around 1 hour in length.
  • If you are interested in being part of the Howbert team, please contact me.


SCHOOL ATTENDANCE

Over the past two years, it has been difficult for schools to promote good attendance. Student and family health was of highest importance through the unprecedented times.

As we move into a period in which we are seeing less illness, it is important that students are in school when they are well.

If you ever have any question as to whether or not your child should attend school, please contact the office (328-4200).

PTO MEETINGS

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, March 10 @ 4pm ***


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
  • Membership
  • Luncheon Host


If you are interested in one of these positions, please let us know at a meeting or email howbertPTO@gmail.com .

Student Spotlight - The Hive

At Howbert, students are able to work in The Hive for additional support & resources. Below are a few of those kiddos diligently working on their special projects for the day.

Spirit Wear Survey

We are looking to possibly change who we order spirit wear (Howbert t-shirts, hats, stickers, etc) from and we would love to get your input! Please take this quick survey and let us know your thoughts. https://forms.gle/K9WZ1a1KfH5LumRS8

Box Top$ for Education

Six Howbert families earned money for our school last month through Box Tops for Education. This month, we'd love to double that number! Please consider looking for the Box Tops label when you are shopping - no more clipping! Then, use the app to snap a photo of your receipt within 14 days of purchase. Box Tops earnings are identified and automatically updated online. You can get the app at https://www.boxtops4education.com, through the App Store, or on Google Play. If you shop for groceries online, you can still earn Box Tops for our school with your e-receipt! Go to BTFE.com/emailgroceryreceipts. Thank you for supporting Howbert!

Volunteers Wanted

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.


  • We need WATCH DOG Dads! Learn all about this awesome program HERE.


Please make sure to fill out THIS FORM prior to signing up. You only need to fill this out once. Once completed email us at amandajo.nelson@d11.org and we will get you all set up!


❤The gift of your time is priceless to our students❤
