Principals' Corner

Dear Hiawatha and Howe Families,

The snow has finally melted, birds are chirping and the light green buds are providing us with spring hope.  It is a great time to enjoy the warm weather.

We have event filled weeks ahead of us. Please check the Important Dates section of the newsletter.

The Bike and Walk week is May 6th – 9th. Take a walk, a ride, a stroll.  There will be activities during the week, which Dave Cowan/PTO is organizing.   Thursday May 9 is the Husky Hike.  If, you would like to volunteer please, contact PTO.  This is the morning event where Hiawatha students get off their morning bus at Howe then walk to Hiawatha with Hiawatha staff and vise-versa with Howe students getting off their bus at Hiawatha. 

PTO meeting is Tuesday May 14 6:30-8:00 in the Howe Media Center.

FAST testing for Grades K-2 continues until Friday May 24th.  See Hiawatha’s web page for the schedule. Please, be sure your child is well rested and has a good breakfast at home or at school.  

Mark your calendars for Fiesta May 16th 4:30-7:30 pm at Howe. Fiesta is a celebratory gathering with food, fun, games, family and community!  We look forward to see you there.
