HOWELL is hosting it's first PT3 meeting this Monday. 

What is Parents and Teachers Talking Together (PT3)?

The PT3 was created by the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence, Lexington, KY in 1994, and is used widely in other states to facilitate conversations between parents and teachers focusing on student success.  The Parent & Educator Partnership will work with your district or school team to design a session around specific questions, such as "What do we want for our students," and "What do we need to do to get what we want for our students."
The collaborative activity is designed for up to 30 participants, ideally 15 parents and 15 educators; and will range from 2 to 4 hours depending on the desired outcomes.  Through the structured dialogue, common priorities are discovered and top ideas are moved into an action plan.  For more information you can view the website HERE!
Please come out to the 4 hour session on Monday, even if you did not sign up prior.  Childcare will be provided free of charge and lunch will be catered as well.  Come be a part of the solution in collaborating with other parents and teachers to determine what we want for our students here at Howell and what we need to do to get what we want for them!

Message from Mr. Goodenough

Good afternoon, this is a message from Mr. Goodenough at Dorothy Howell with a lot of upcoming information.

1. Pedometers went home this week and are a great way for students and families to discuss healthy living and obtaining their 10,000 steps per day. Reminder that k-4th grade students will be returning their pedometers on Friday of this week and 5th grade will bring theirs back on Monday the 20th.  

  2. Join the Erlanger/Elsmere School District community in celebrating International Walk to School Day on Wednesday, Oct. 15th. Take some time this week to promote health, safety, and the environment by walking with your child to school – or just simply taking a walk together. Celebrate Walk to School Day and help improve your child’s health and safety – as well as your own. We have a special gift for those walking that day.

3. We have our first iMom breakfast of the school year this Friday from 7am to 7:30 am. We want to welcome all moms and motherly figures to join their students this Friday.      

4.. October SBDM is this Thursday at 5:15.  

5. Our next session of Born Learning is next Wednesday the 22nd at  6:00 in the evening. Dinner and Child care are provided.

6. Finally our first round of parent teacher conferences are next Thursday the 23rd. Please schedule a time to meet with your child's teacher.  

Thanks and have a great evening.
