Howard Elementary School


Good Afternoon,

Happy Friday! Thank you to all the parents that were able to attend the parent meeting yesterday (please keep in mind that we schedule parent meeting times based on the majority of the parent survey responses). In addition to giving parents updates on school-wide and PTA events that you can find in our previously posted November newsletter, our instructional coach also provided a parent workshop on a reading strategy (Close Reading) based on the greatest interest from the last parent survey. The presentation of the Close Reading workshop is linked here for your viewing. Also, the class that had the greatest parent/guardian participation was Mrs. Pischke’s class! Thank you to all the parents for their support.

Some other updates mentioned at the parent meeting:

Dragon Dollars are back; we will have weekly Friday drawings! Student of the Month begins this month too! If you are on social media, please consider following us @howard_dragons. We will begin featuring a different grade level every week as well to showcase our students at work! Also, please consider subscribing to our school blog if you have not already at (subscribe option is the left-hand-sidebar) to get instant notifications about any new posts)! Finally, have you seen our wonderful art teacher’s social media account on Instagram @crazyartclass?? She posts some amazing student artwork and our young artists are so proud to see their artwork published!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
