Just a few things…

  • Tomorrow is our spelling test. Please study tonight. We will have a break from spelling next week. Since it is a short week (no school Monday and half day Friday) and we have testing to make up, we will not have a new spelling list next week.
  • Weekly writing is due tomorrow.
  • I am sending home a new Scholastic book order today. Scholastic has emailed and said their shipping issues have been resolved. You can also order anytime online at scholastic.com/bookclubs. Our class code is HLYYX.


We have scheduled a field trip on Tuesday, March 15th with kindergarten to the hands on museum in Ann Arbor. We have scheduled buses for the trip but still need parent chaperones. This trip will be free for your child. No siblings allowed on this one. Please reserve this date in your calendar so you can join us!

In schoology, I have created a Eureka Math page that I will post all of the math lesson videos for the week. It is located on the main schoology page at the very bottom. Click on it and you will see the math lesson videos for the week. So if your child is absent they can still watch the math video that go with each lesson.

Happy Monday!

Good afternoon,

I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy and safe. As covid is affecting more and more people, please continue to discuss with your child the importance of sneezing/coughing in their elbow, washing hands thoroughly, using hand sanitizer, wearing their mask correctly, etc. We discuss all of these things daily in class as well. This week January 10th-14th:

  • We took our NWEA reading test this morning. Everyone did a great job. We will take the math test Thursday morning. Makeups will take place as needed before January 28th.
  • If your child is absent from school you must call the office in the morning with the reason why. An email to let me know is helpful as well.
  • If your child is absent and well enough to work, please have them stay up to date on zearn math, Succeed math book, raz kids, Lalilo, and Epic. They can also work on weekly writing assignments, practice their spelling words, and be sure they are reading and completing their reading log daily. All of these logins have been sent home and are on the schoology website.
  • This week in math we will be completing lessons 19-22.
  • There is no school Monday, January 17th for MLK day. Next Friday, January 21st is the end of the card marking period and a half day with a 12:05 dismissal.

Have a great week and stay warm 🙂

Just a few things…

  • Tomorrow is Popcorn Day! Bring $1 for a bag of popcorn.
  • Picture retake day is tomorrow. If you want retakes, please bring in your originals.
  • Please study for the spelling test tomorrow. We have some tricky words this week!
  • Weekly writing is due tomorrow.
  • Next week we plan on taking the winter NWEA test for reading and math. We will test Monday morning and Thursday morning. As always, please be sure your child gets a good night sleep and eats a healthy breakfast. If your child is absent, there will be makeups. The last day for testing is January 28th.

Raz Kids


So we had to renew our subscription to raz kids. They upgraded our subscription and none of the student accounts transferred over so we had to get them transferred and it took awhile. Anyway, it’s all figured out now. Everything should be the same for students, except I am sending home new login info because those have changed. They will be in your child’s folder today. Sorry for the delay and thanks for your patience 🙂

Happy New Year!

Good afternoon,

I hope everyone enjoyed their break! We are so happy to be back in school today! This week January 3rd – 7th:

  • December reading logs and Snowman homework packets were due today. If you haven’t turned them in please do so tomorrow. I am enjoying reading about everyone’s break 🙂 January calendars are going home today too.
  • We will continue to go out for recess as long as the weather permits. Please be sure your child is dressed appropriately daily.
  • This Friday is picture retake day. If you want your child to have their pictures retaken, you must bring back the original pictures.

  • Please read the following important message from the principal:

Greetings Howe School Family,

As we return to school tomorrow, I want to take a moment to thank you all for your generosity and thoughtfulness this holiday season. I also want to wish you all a happy, healthy, and prosperous new year.

As you may be aware, covid cases are continuing to spread at a high rate throughout the nation. As we return it is very important that we closely monitor our staff and students and that we are following our mitigation plans. Please help us keep our students healthy and in school by doing the following:

  • If your child or anyone in your household has been exposed over the Holiday Break to Covid, please keep your child home from school and contact the school office for further guidance.
  • If your child or anyone in your household has any symptoms of illness or has tested positive for covid, please keep your child home from school and contact the school office for further guidance.
  • If your child or anyone in your household is unable to pass the Daily District Screener, please keep your child home from school and contact the school office for further guidance.
  • If your child or anyone in your household has a covid test result that is pending-either rapid or PCR, please keep your child home from school and contact the school office for further guidance.

We need every individual to follow this advisory message in order for us to help mitigate the spread of Covid-19 within our school community.

Thank you,

Mrs. Fournier
