May word of the month:  INFER
The character trait for May is ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT.



Hiawatha Community School is located within a culturally diverse, urban community.  Pre-K-2nd grade are housed at the Hiawatha Campus and 3rd-5th grade are housed at the Howe Campus.  The two campuses are about six blocks apart.     

We are off to a great start at Hiawatha and Howe Schools.  We welcome back our returning families and welcome our NEW families!
