It’s that time of year when we show our Howard teachers and staff how much we appreciate all that they do for our students. This year’s theme is Superheroes. Below is a list of ways your student can help contribute to this special week.

Monday/Tuesday: Flower Power! Students can bring a flower for their superhero teachers.

Wednesday: Super Sweet Wednesday! Please have your student email a note to their teacher telling them what they appreciate about them.

Thursday/Friday: Superhero Power! Have your student wear their favorite superhero shirt.

PTA will be sponsoring a special breakfast for our teachers and staff. If you have any additional ways you would like to show appreciation for our teachers, please feel free!
