Thanks so much for sharing your children with me this school year, it has been a real pleasure. Everyone had a fantastic year and learned so much. They will do great in second grade and in the future! I hope all of you have a safe and fun summer! Don’t forget to read everyday! Enjoy the pictures!

Can you believe tomorrow is the last day of school?!

Just a few things:

  • Please make sure your child brings their backpack tomorrow, we still have more stuff to take home.
  • We have chips and cookies for snack tomorrow 🙂
  • Report cards, NWEA scores, and supply lists for next year will go home tomorrow.
  • Dismissal is at 12:05!
  • We all had a wonderful time at field day on Tuesday! Enjoy the pics!

Happy last week of school!


Sorry for the late post. I wanted to thank everyone for coming to the zoo last week. Everyone had a great time! Can you believe it’s the last week of school?! Please read:

  • Tomorrow (Tuesday) is field day! If your child has a Howe shirt, please wear it and gym shoes.
  • I’m sure you’ve heard by now, but they cancelled school for Wednesday due to the heat. So the picnic has been cancelled unfortunately.
  • Thursday is pajama day. Students may also bring in a stuffed animal and a board game to play.
  • Friday is the last day of school with a 12:05 dismissal. Students should wear tie dye if they have it. Students will get their report cards, NWEA test scores, and their supply list for next year on Friday.
  • Please let me know ASAP if your child’s last day will be earlier than Friday.



Tomorrow is our trip! Please check the weather in the morning and dress appropriately. We are going rain or shine. If you don’t have a Howe shirt you can wear whatever you want. Please let me know if you will just meet us there instead of coming to Howe first in the morning. Please be there at 9:50 at the end of the large parking garage ramp. Don’t forget your yellow parking pass!

We are looking forward to a fun day!

*Please check in with your teacher that morning at Howe when you drop off your other children in the FRONT parking lot. (We will be standing out there from 8:40-9am) If you do not need to come to Howe then please email your teacher as a way to check in. 

*Then head straight to the zoo. We will meet as a large group right by the end of the parking garage ramp. We can only enter as a whole group so please be prompt with a 9:50 arrival. Parking can take some time so take that into account. They will let us in beginning at 10 am. 

*Please wear a Howe school shirt or your classroom faces t-shirt that day ☺

*You may bring or buy lunch at the zoo.

*We will meet at the playground between 12-12:30 pm for a quick check in. (The playground is on the left side of the zoo on the outside walking loop)

*After check in you are free to roam the zoo and leave whenever you need to. We will NOT be checking you out. 

*****Remember you must have this parking pass that is attached to get out of the parking lot or garage! DO NOT forget it or you will have to buy a new one*****

Happy Tuesday!
