|HWCSD Cross-Country Team!|
We have had a super-fun week at Howard-Winn celebrating Homecoming 2015. Activities began on Saturday Morning with the HWCSD Cross-Country Team hosting their annual meet. It was a beautiful day and our young women and men did a fantastic job. Activities proceeded on to Sunday, October 4th with the crowning of the King & Queen, followed by Powder Puff Football. The entire week was very colorful and fun with the Elementary, Junior High & High School hosting a variety of dress-up days. The week's activities will conclude with a big football game against Decorah, which is always an exciting, spirited event.

To the left are several photos of the high school students as they dressed up for for homecoming week. It is hard for me to name my favorite, but the big blond wig has got to be one of the best!

On October 5th & 6th, the above special education staff and Denise Headington, Family Case Manager, attended the Social Thinking Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Some of you may remember, that I attended a Social Thinking Conference this summer in San Francisco, and I was so thrilled to bring these outstanding women to learn about Social Thinking Conference which focused on Special Education Goals, Strategies. The conference also went into great detail on how Social Thinking is linked to the Common Core Curriculum. Here are some comments the staff above wrote to Mr. Carver, thanking him for allowing us to attend the conference
