At Howe School, we value our families and appreciate involvement in our school community. Throughout the school year, there are numerous opportunities to volunteer for school events, field trips, and classroom-based activities. In order to ensure the safety of our school community, all volunteer opportunities should be arranged through the teacher, principal, or through the PTA. The district has established policies for volunteers which includes signing in at the office and completing the ichat process.
In recent weeks, there have been concerns expressed by several families and staff members regarding parent visitors in the cafeteria during lunch, recess, and during after school clubs. Please note that all visitations require an invitation or prearrangement with the teacher or principal. Drop-in visits cause unnecessary disruption and can interfere with student socialization. Please contact the office or your child’s teacher if you have questions or would like to volunteer.
We appreciate your support and cooperation as we work together to provide a safe and efficient learning environment.
he Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Detroit Section is pleased to announce it’s twelfth annual Girls’ Engineering Exploration (GEE) Day on Saturday, March 21, 2020. This year’s event will be held at the Michigan Science Center from 9AM – 4PM. The free seminar, with lunch provided, is a part of SWE’s continuous effort to educate young women about the endless career opportunities that the engineering field has to offer.
In order to make this seminar a success we are asking 4th, 5th, and 6th grade teachers and parents/guardians throughout metro Detroit to pass along the information and document included in this email to girls that they believe display interest and enthusiasm in the STEAM subjects. We are striving to reach out and inspire girls that work hard and have the potential to become future engineers. Included in this email is a flyer (GEE Student Flyer 2020) that discusses the activities to be held at the event for the girls. The program is limited to 125 girls, so please encourage students and parents to respond as soon as possible.
Teachers and parents are also invited to attend an informational and interactive session at the same time as the student events. They will be provided with resources and opportunities to further engage their child/student in engineering activities. If teachers and/or parents are interested in attending they can register in the same link provided on the flyer. Lunch is provided and seating is limited.
Registration instructions are included on the flyer. The last date to register for the students, teachers, and parents is Monday, March 2, 2020, but seating is limited so please sign up as soon as possible.
