  • Howard Elementar y School

    Spring is here and only

    two months left of

    school with a lot yet to

    be accomplished.

    Grades 3-6 will be

    taking the Smarter Bal-

    anced tests starting

    April 15. Some have

    been taking some prac-

    tice tests to help them


    Please review the ma-

    terial about testing in

    last month’s newsletter

    and page 11 of this

    newsletter. It is very

    important for students

    taking the test to get

    good sleep and a good

    breakfast. 3rd graders

    have not taken a

    standardized test and

    it will be a first for them

    with the Smarter Bal-

    anced test. This is just

    one way to look at what

    your son/daughter has

    learned. We just ask

    that students do their

    best and

    have pride in that. Most

    students like to know

    how they did and hope-

    fully, we will get results

    sometime this summer.

    There still is the possi-

    bility of cooler weather

    during April, so please

    have your student pre-

    pared with a jacket or

    coat if necessary. They

    can always take off the

    coat as it warms up dur-

    ing the day.

    We are planning for

    Track and Field day. It

    will be May 22nd for

    your planning purposes.

    Again, this year Mr.

    Bosn will be planning

    the day, awards at 9:00

    at the Armory and field

    day will start a little af-

    ter noon.

    Date May 22nd.

    We are still looking for

    Parents to help and a

    leader for our parent

    group. The group is in

    need of a leader to act

    as an organizer and call

    meetings. We have a num-

    ber of parents who are al-

    ways available to help.

    Please call the school if


    Please talk to your child

    about school intruders.

    Our teachers have been

    talking to their students

    and we do plan on some

    practices later this month

    and pray we never have to

    really do them.

    **Parents, don’t forget-

    vaccination requirements

    for 6th graders.

    Please continue to bring in

    Box-Tops it is really easy

    and helps. Each year it

    allows the student council

    to help teachers, buy extra

    balls etc…..

    Please stop in anytime,

    Yours in education,

    Dr. Noid
