Dear Howitt Families,

It is with great pride that I write this brief letter of introduction as the new Principal of Howitt Middle School. During the short time I have spent transitioning into this role, it has become clear to me that the Farmingdale School District has incredible students, dedicated faculty and a caring and supportive community. 

This is not my "welcome to the new school year" letter but an opportunity to say hello and let you know that we are hard at work preparing for the upcoming school year. I hope that you and your loved ones are finding opportunities for rest and enjoyment during this unique time.

Please know that I feel truly blessed to be joining the Daler family and look forward to meeting you in the weeks ahead.


Mike Gavalas
