Howe Montessori and Center Based Education

Important Reminders

No School for Winter Break February 15-18

I hope you all have a healthy, happy, and safe winter break.

Outdoor Recess

Howe students have daily periods for recess that serve an important role in the educational process.  Students are expected to go outside for recess when the temperature is 20 degrees and above (with windchill) unless it is raining.  Please be sure your students have appropriate clothing for outside recess including hats, gloves, boots, and snow pants.

Box Top & Book Swap

During the last week of February, the PTA will be collecting Box Tops!  Send in your box tops in a sealed Ziploc bag with your child’s grade on it.  The class with the largest donation will earn a pizza lunch party!

To prepare for March Reading Month, we will be hosting a Book Swap on March 1st!  During the last week of February, students will be asked to send in gently used books to donate to the swap.  PTA members will set up a one-day-only library in Room 104, and on Friday, March 1st, each class will be invited to come to the swap and fill a bag with “new” used books to bring home!  Any books left over will be donated to the school library or a charity of choice.
