National Honor Society

On Monday, November 28th, Crestwood High School inducted the newest members to the National Honor Society. 
The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.
Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in NHS activities. NHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.

Four main purposes have guided chapters of NHS from the beginning: to create enthusiasm for scholarship; to stimulate a desire to render service; to promote leadership; and to develop character in the students of secondary schools. These purposes also translate into the criteria used for membership selection in each local chapter.

Newly Elected Members include:

Dr. Ann Howard Jones was the featured speaker.  She is a 1960 graduate of Cresco High School and Professor Emerita of Music at Boston University. She is currently a visiting professor at Luther College.  She shared a little bit about her experiences and much about the contributions that others from the area have made throughout the years.  She encouraged students to go and have a positive impact in a big way.

Weather Alerts, School Delays and Closures
As we move into the winter weather season, keeping informed about weather conditions and school closures is a priority. If road conditions are in question, we will always start with a 2 hour delay. The two hour late start gives us time to completely evaluate the situation. The goal is to have "2 hour late starts" announced prior to 6:00 a.m.  

How will this be communicated? You have several options:
Twitter at #2020HowardWinn (Instantly know!)
School Messenger: This is an option you can subscribe to in PowerSchool. It will give you the option to receive an email, text message or voice mail to your phone. You may call the office at the elementary if you have questions (563-547-2300).
IOWA SCHOOL ALERTS HAS CHANGED: If you used to receive notification in the past please sign up with the new system Go to: to subscribe.

NICC Classes:
If classes are cancelled at Howard-Winn they are also cancelled at NICC - Cresco Center.

If we have a 2 hour delay, NICC classes that are scheduled to start before 10:00 AM will be cancelled.  Those classes that are scheduled to start after 10:00 AM will be held as scheduled.

Area TV and Radio stations will also be notified. Please note that if you use a text service from a TV station it may be as much as 30 minutes lag time from when they post it and when it is announced on Social Media.

Become an Athletic Official Get Back in the Game

Participation in high school athletics does not have to end with high school graduation. Even if you have been away from the game for awhile, you can get back in the game by becoming a licensed official in any of the sports sanctioned by the Iowa High School Athletic Association and Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union.

As a licensed official, you not only have the opportunity to earn a little extra money, but also the opportunity to be a positive influence in a young person’s life. The hours are somewhat flexible and contracts can be accepted based on a day-to-day availability.
More information is available at the link below.

Substitute Teachers and Associates Needed
Do you like working with children and helping them learn? Do you enjoy working in a high-energy, creative learning/working environment? If your answer is "YES," we need you! Howard-Winn is looking for substitute teachers and associates to work in our classrooms. In the absence of the regular classroom teacher or associate, substitutes would be helping students to learn subject matter and/or skills  required for curriculum lessons and providing meaningful instruction for our students in their classrooms. 

Please visit this link for more information about obtaining a Substitute Authorization:

If interested please submit a letter of application and a resume to Superintendent, 1000 Schroder Drive, Cresco, IA 52136
