The PTO would like all students to “bash” us with Box Tops! The Box Tops Bash will begin on Tuesday, September 3 and will run through Friday, September 27. Students should bring in their valid, neatly clipped Box Tops and place them in their classroom collection box. Every Friday, the Box Tops are counted, and a tally is given in the announcements on Monday morning.If our school meets the goal of collecting 7,000 Box Tops, all students will receive a treat! Remember to start collecting Box Tops now and help our school!

CONGRATULATIONS HOWARD ELEMENTARY! The Indiana Department of Education gives Howard Elementary a letter grade of A. Congratulations Teachers, students, and parents!

Dear Parents, Staff, and Students,

We want to welcome the Advance ED accreditation team who will be visiting Northwestern School Corporation. Howard Elementary School will be visited on Tuesday afternoon, October 8th. The team could visit any classroom and talk to any student or staff member. Accreditation is important not only to Northwestern School Corporation but also to the Howard County community. Accreditation is about looking at our current processes and finding ways to continue to improve what we are doing as a school and as a school system.

October is a very busy month. The seasons are changing and we are finishing our first grading period on October 11th. PTO Movie Night is October 18. Fifties Day is October 21st and our Walk-A-Thon fund raiser is October 22nd. Thank you Mrs. Bentley for coordinating this huge event. Our students have been excited about voting for their favorite student drawn T-Shirt design.

Northwestern School Corporation is in a friendly competition with Eastern School Corporation for Coats for Kids collection. If you would like to donate please bring the coats to the office. So far we have collected 50 coats just at Howard Elementary.

We want to remind parents that our Parent Teacher Conferences will be held October 23rd and 24th. You will receive ISTEP+ information that will be sent home for your review if you have not all ready checked the information on line. There will be no school on October 25 and October 26 for fall Break. I want to thank all of the parents who have volunteered stuffing envelopes for Walk a Thon and helping to prepare for the Advance ED visit. I also want to thank our teachers, support staff, custodial, and maintenance staff for helping us spruce up the building even more. Howard is like a home for family and friends. We want to share our home and school with our guests. We are looking at possibly changing our bus/student drop off and parent/student drop off points. We will let you know when a decision has been made if we make a change in our procedure for safety.

Enjoy your weekend!
