Are you curious about the world around you and how things work? Do you like to create experiments to test your ideas? Do you have an idea for an invention or a way to improve something that already exists? If yes, the STEAM Fair is for YOU! The STEAM Fair takes place at Howe Elementary School on February 29th, 2023 from 5:30pm-7:30pm.
I hope you've all gotten to take a couple of deep breaths since elf season and maybe (perhaps?!) you're ready to get back to the work bench! We have 3 Howe's About a Gift Craft Nights set up for this Spring (if you know me, you would know how impressive this front-loading is!).
The Sunny Funny Fair is our biggest FUNdraising event of the year. The grounds around Howe are transformed into a carnival, with over 40 games, activities, craft stations, cake walk. Kids play games to earn points that can be cashed in for prizes, and food is available for purchase. This event is open to the entire family and surrounding community.
The Sunny Funny Fair was an event held on September 23, 2023.

It's your last year at Howe, let's make it a memorable one!
The 5th grade committee is responsible for raising funds for 5th grade activities. Fifth grade students participate in numerous fun events to make their last year at Howe memorable. Parents must opt-in to receive separate communication from the 5th grade committee.
Eagle Scout and Howe alumni Mason McBride presented an amazing plan to paint the blacktop area. The addition of 7 games including basketball courts, reinstating the US Map, four square, a trackway, copy me (like dance-dance revolution); hopscotch, and a sensory pathway will greatly improve recess on the blacktop for all students!
Mason is raising funds for materials. Please see the following Gofundme link if you are interested in contributing: Revamping Howe Elementary Black Top. The project will be completed by next fall.
