To Our Parents:


Today is Tuesday,  March 31, 2015.
It is a "B" day. 
Buy a Yearbook


On average, Howitt Middle School sends $10,000 to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, yet only about 15% of Howitt students fundraise money. Could this be the year where every student has a part? If every student brings in $10, Howitt would be able to send almost $15,000 to the hospital. Students who donate $10 will be given a pledge form from their math teacher so that they can write their name on it and the form will be displayed showing their support. St. Jude thanks you for all you do!

April is Autism Awareness month. Staff and students are invited to participate in the World Autism Awareness Day celebration, “Light it Up Blue,” by wearing blue to school tomorrow.
