Hello Howard Families!
It is important to keep your child learning and engaged over the summer months to make sure that they keep up with the learning and skills gained at school. However, we know that this summer will look a little bit different for our students and families and things such as camps and family field trips might not be feasible for safety and health purposes. For this reason we have compiled a list of great online resources that can be used to help students stay sharp over the summer. In addition to these items, we always recommend reading books to help students continue and keep up their literary education.
All of the resources can be found on the blog HERE or under the link titled “Summer Resources for Students” found on the home page
Please also see the attached letter regarding summer learning from the district HERE
Have a wonderful summer, Howard Dragons!!
I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with you and your children this year, truly. There are an awesome group of young people.
I will be continuing reading and posting the story The One Only Bob once my power is back on. Last night’s storm hit my area hard.
Parents, please give your child a huge hug for me. Students, please give your parents huge hugs for me. Have a wonderful summer! Enjoy the beautiful day, and perhaps take the family out for a treat, like a long bike ride followed by ice cream to cool off.
Can’t wait to see everyone in the fall!
With much love,
Good Morning Howard Families,
Today marks the last day of the 2019-2020 school year, although it has been different from any other traditional school year, it truly was a pleasure to meet and serve the Howard community throughout the remote learning process.

Thank you for your time in advance!
Have a great weekend!
MiStar has been updated to correlate the assignments that have been turn in to Google Classroom not including this week’s assignments. If there is a missing assignment, please review your child’s assignments in Google Classroom. Perhaps the assignment was completed, but not turned in.
Please contact me with any questions.
Dear Howard Families,
This message is for all 5th-grade students and their families. On Tuesday, June 9th, from 12:00-2:00 pm, we will have a drive-up distribution to congratulate all the 5th graders on their promotion!!!!!! Please remember that this will be in a drive-up format in front of the school on N. York St. For your safety, please remember that all students and parents must remain in their vehicles at all times and may not enter the school building. Our teachers are excited to see you! Please feel free to decorate your vehicles if you like! Way to go, Howard Dragons…you survived 5th grade and quarantine, you are ready to take on MIDDLE SCHOOL!
See you soon!!
Hope you are all well and enjoying the beautiful weather! This is the last week that new assignments will be posted. The week of June 8, students will be able to make assignments. Grades for this marking period will be based on effort.
Just a heads up, one of the experiments asks the kids to taste test 4 different varieties of apples. If you are at the store this week and can provide them with 4 different types of apples that would be helpful (the assignment asks for Granny Smith, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious and Honey Crisp.) If you cannot do this, no worries! They will not be penalized for not doing the doc.
Thank you once again for all of your support during this difficult time. I’m so proud of the efforts of the students. :). Thank you for setting such a strong education foundation for them. Parents are their children’s first and most important teachers. 🙂
Your partner in education,
Have some fun listening to some Howard masked singers hold a tune! Vote for your favorite one. 🙂 The singers will be revealed next week. Enjoy!!
