Academic All-State Football

Congratulations to Spencer Cuvelier, Austin McAllister, and Isaiah Passmore for being named to the Iowa Football Coaches Association 2016 Academic All-State Football Team. 

We understand that students' performance in the classroom can sometimes be difficult to manage while participating in athletics, but their hard work has not gone unnoticed.  

We applaud them for their commitment and dedication to perform with the highest of excellence academically and on the field.

Clarity/Bright Bytes

The Howard-Winneshiek Community School District is partnering with BrightBytes, an educational software company, in order to learn more about our students’ school and home technology use. The goal is to gather data on technology access and skills in order to understand the connection between technology use and student achievement. For that reason, we are reaching out to ask you to take part in a Clarity Parent survey. Your participation is essential in helping us form a more complete picture of technology use for learning in your child’s life.

During the week of January 23rd - 27th, please keep an eye out for an email with more information on how to participate.

This is an anonymous survey regarding your technology use. Thank you for your time and feedback.

Marine Corp Educator Workshop
Connecting Educators with the Future of the Marine Corps

Four times per year the 12th Marine Corps District sends approximately 80 high school and college educators, counselors and administrators to MCRD San Diego. Each visit lasts one week, and participants also experience life on Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton and Marine Corps Airs Station Miramar.  Casey Bouska, High School Special Education Teacher, and myself have been selected to participate in the workshop from February 20 - 24th. 

Through this “Educator Workshop Program,” we will have an opportunity to get a firsthand look at how United States Marines are made.  Moreover, participants get a basic understanding of the Marine Corps and are better equipped to advise their students about our career opportunities.   These workshops dispel the myths about recruit training and the Marine Corps’ mission by providing you with a firsthand experience that is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.  The program also exposes educators to the many personal development, career, and educational opportunities available to today’s Marines.  The intent of this worthwhile program is to provide us with a better understanding of how Marines are made.
It is my understanding that the four-day program begins with a welcome aboard at the Depot’s famous “Yellow Footprints” and ends with viewing a recruit graduation.  Along the way, we will also see “The Crucible,” a key event in the recruit-training program for Marine recruits.
