Prom 2016 will be held on Saturday, April 16th.
The Grand March will be held in the gym beginning at 7:00 p.m.  A $1.00 donation is requested of spectators who come to the Grand March.  All students attending the Prom are encouraged to be involved in the Grand March.  Parents, and other interested people, are welcome to be seated in the gym for this event and to take pictures.  The junior class requests that those persons not attending the Prom leave shortly after the Grand March so that the dance may begin.

The Prom dance will be held in the high school gymnasium following the Grand March, from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m.  DJ music will be provided for the dance.  

Juniors, seniors and their guests will be arriving to the Prom at 6:30 p.m.  We ask that those students attending the Prom park in the junior high parking lot so that persons attending the Grand March can park in the high school parking lot.

An After-Prom Party will be held at Crestwood High School after the dance.  All participants must be signed into the building by 12:00 a.m. or you will not be allowed to enter.  Hours of the after-prom party are from 11:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.  Once you leave you cannot return. Festivities will include a photo booth, human foosball, human Hungry Hungry Hippo, jousting, laser tag, Blackjack, Texas Hold’em, bean bags, Minute to Win It games, karaoke, Cash Cab, and more.  Prizes will be given throughout the night, but the large prizes will be given beginning at 1:30 a.m.  Those prizes have been on display at the high school. Students must be present to win and only Crestwood juniors and seniors can win.  Food will be served through the night.  

All students are welcome, even if they did not participate in the Grand March or dance.  
We hope to see you there.  

Chris Norton - Motivational Speaker
On Wednesday, May 4th Chris Norton will be at CHS to speak to students and staff.  

Mr. Norton is an expert when it comes to resolving challenges and achieving goals. Chris has had to overcome many challenges throughout his life, particularly having to comeback from a debilitating spinal cord injury he suffered playing college football at Luther College. The injury and 3% prognoses of ever regaining feeling or function below his neck did not hold Chris back from striving and living a happy and successful life. Chris vowed that he would walk across the stage of his college graduation, a goal that doctors would have deemed impossible. He not only proved the doctors wrong by fulfilling his goal of walking across the stage, he met the woman of his dreams, runs a successful nonprofit he formed to help others with disabilities, published his book, and is a professional speaker.

Chris has been on ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS Early Show, Fox And Friends, NBC Nightly News, featured on CBS Evening News, ABC News, TODAY, TIME, USA Today, Cosmopolitan, E!, MTV, People, The Chive, and featured internationally across the globe through media networks such as Fuji Network in Japan and Daily Mail in Europe. Chris Norton’s inspiring story resonates with all audiences as he shares his personal story and message that is emotional, entertaining, personal, and humorous. More importantly, his message will spark action, change, and bring joy to everyone in the room.  

His life lessons will resonate with the students and audiences long after his presentation is over.

“So many people, including myself, fear failure, it's human. But if you do everything in your power to accomplish your dreams, at the end of the day, you can be proud and happy with how far you've come,” said Chris Norton. “Good things will come your way.”

Meet Mrs. Ringoen:

What grade levels and subjects do you teach?
Elementary Instrumental Music
7th Grade General Music

Where did you attend college?

I studied choral and instrumental music education at the University of Northern Iowa.

How many years have you been an educator? How many years at Howard-Winn?

This is my 7th year teaching and my second in the Howard-Winneshiek Community School District.
Was there a particular event or person that inspired you to become an educator?
My mother was an educator and growing up with her, every moment was a teachable moment. Education and learning of all kinds became a passion of mine early in life. It wasn't until high school that I knew music was the area I wanted to teach. Music had become a passion of mine and I had such a great experience in my high school music program. The music department was a place that I belonged and I knew I wanted to give students all of the same opportunities that I had there.

What is your favorite thing about Howard-Winn? 

The open-mindedness. Thinking outside of the box is encouraged, not discouraged and that is the way I like to teach and learn!
