Though the weather outside might be snowy and cold, inside CADETS are connected, collaborating, and creating!  

Utilizing TECHNOLOGY to focus on MATH amplifies learning and thinking. Polygons? What kind of Math were you studying in 2nd GRADE? 

Weather Impacted Instructional Time 
The Howard-Winn school calendar is based on instructional "hours" as opposed to "days". For students this means we have built in "extra hours" and as such can "miss" up to 64 hours and not have to extend the school year beyond May 25th. Teachers are contracted on "days" which means they will make up the time. We started the year with 64 hours built in. As of December 16th students have 46 hours remaining and teachers have two days of service to make up.  

In the event of bad weather, Howard-Winn will always begin with a 2 hour delay. The decision to cancel classes will follow later. For instant notification be sure to follow on TWITTER at #2020HowardWinn. 

A special THANK YOU from CADET NATION goes out to Brad and Jen Burke for the donation of a portable automated external defibrillator. This gift is given in memory of their son Jarek, a United States Marine and 2012 graduate of Crestwood High School. Corporal Burke passed away unexpectedly from injuries as a result of an automobile accident while serving at Camp Lejeune. THANK YOU Brad and Jen for the gift and for your son's service to our country.  To read more go to
