The Howard-Winneshiek CommunitySchool District is committed to preparing and empowering young people to Think, Lead, and Serve. 

CADET NATION is on the move and closing in on the 2020 target that our children are the best prepared kids on the planet.  Identifying PASSIONS, connecting them to PROFESSIONS and developing the GRIT to get there is the way forward. 

SHOUT OUTS
  • A special "SHOUT OUT" to everyone who contributed to the 2016 Homecoming experience last weekend.  There were MANY who worked hard to make it special. The parade, the Pep assembly, the score board with videos, the spirit generated by the cheerleaders, the FANTASTIC football game, the wonderful halftime show by the Cadet Marching Band and the GREAT food served by the All Sports Booster Club and the Kiwanis, and so, so much more. Homecoming 2016 was OUTSTANDING!
  • Good Luck to the CADET MARCHING BAND as the continue their marching band competition season at Cedar Rapids. Then on to STATE! GREAT job on your 4th place finish last weekend! 
  • THANK YOU Scott Wiley for assisting with recruiting volunteer workers for the junior sporting events. YOU ROCK!
  • BEST of luck to the CADET CROSS COUNTRY TEAM as they host their Invitational Tournament here at Crestwood High School.  Despite the rain and the wet, Coach Obermann and the TEAM continue to succeed and achievement! #PROUD
  • CADET Volleyball and Football TEAMS continue to move forward! Sportsmanship, TEAM WORK, Competitive, all describe these coaches and young people. KEEP MOVING FORWARD! 

GRIT
CADET NATION is developing GRIT, the inner power, the determination, and the self confidence to make dreams reality. Making dreams reality takes COURAGE and HARD WORK. TRAIN UGLY's Trevor Ragan and Holocaust survivor Max Garcia both have shared the same message: "the only one limiting yourself is you, and despite what ever condition you find yourself, having courage and a Growth Mindset is the difference between achievement and accomplishment, living or dying.  2020 Howard-Winn is a very special place and I am convinced that there are many "Norman Borlaugs" walking the halls today! Our mission is to inspire them to fulfill their potential!  CADETS FORWARD!
