Back to School Parent-Teacher Conferences

Howard-Winn will kickoff the 2016-17 school year with 
Back to School Parent-Teacher Conferences on 
Tuesday, August 23rd. 

7th-12th grade conference schedule:
1:00 - 4:00  Open Conference times available for students and parents to meet individually with any teachers they would like.

5:15 - 6:00  Students and Parents meet with Homebase teachers for Laptop distribution and other information.

6:00 - 8:00  Students and Parents will run through a shortened version of their students schedule to meet each teacher and hear about each class.

The staff is looking forward to this time with parents. Teachers will inform parents and students about grade level standards and curriculum, the daily schedule of the classroom, pupil progress reporting, special programs, the classroom/school behavior plan, classroom expectations and other pertinent information. Parents and students can ask questions and discuss any specific individual concerns with the teacher at this time also. Students will have the opportunity to bring in their classroom supplies, get to know the teacher and become familiar with the room.

Howard-Winn is utilizing these conferences to better connect and build meaningful relationships with parents and students before the school year starts. Kids do better in school when parents are involved in their academic lives. Attending back-to-school conferences is a great way to establish that relationship. We will extend this relationship by also providing Student Led Parent-Teacher conferences in November and again in February. These conferences are a chance to continue conversations between parents and teachers, and to discuss strategies to help students do their best in class. Meetings between the parents and the teacher also let students know that what goes on in school will be shared at home. Parents are also encouraged to request meetings with teachers, principals, school counselors, or other school staff at any time during the school year if they have questions or concerns.

The first day of classes for Howard-Winn students for the 
2016-17 school year will be 
Wednesday, August 24th, 2016.

Silver Cord
The Silver Cord Program is to recognize students throughout their high school career for their volunteerism in their community. This program is open to all students. Graduating seniors who complete required hours will be recognized at the Senior Awards Night with a certificate and a Silver Cord that is worn on Graduation Day. Additionally seniors will be recognized in the graduation program. 

Hours Required: All Graduating Classes = 160 hours.

It is encouraged that students complete 40 hours per year; however, students can accumulate the hours at any point to achieve the required hours by the time of their graduation.

At the end of each school year, underclassmen who volunteer at least 40 hours will receive a certificate at the Awards Ceremony. Upon volunteering 40 hours, students will receive a Silver Cord Patch. Every 40 hours after, students will receive a silver star to place on the patch.

Criteria for Service Hours

  • Activities should be supervised by an adult who signs off on the Service Hour form submitted by the student
  • Activities should not be court ordered, for misconduct, or for class.
  • Activities should not be paid.
  • Activities must be documented by submission of the Service Hour Form.
  • Parents cannot sign the form as the supervisor.
