Hello, Fort Howard Pioneers.
As the new principal at Fort Howard Elementary School, I would like to share a tidbit of information related to the journey for Fort Howard during the 2013 – 2014 school year.
The Fort Howard Vision:
Every Student, Every Day, Everyone, Every Way!
2013 – 2014 School Year
Daily schedule 7:57 – 3:00 (30 additional instructional minutes compared to the other
Yearly schedule Sept. 3 – June 30th (13 additional school days than the other elementary schools)
The reason for the additional instructional minutes that is equal to about 4 ½ additional weeks of instruction, is to prevent summer slide and to provide the students with a seamless and extended school year, that eliminates the need for a June summer school. Our goal is to set up all of our students up for success.
Making our goals and growth visible, while celebrating all growth:
We will post our goals and growth in the main hallway and welcome you checking out our data and having conversations with your child about their own individual growth.
Reference student grade levels by the year they graduate from High School:
We will also be referencing our students’ grade that they are presently in as the year that they will graduate from High School and then have the opportunity to make a choice about what they will be able to do with their future. Will they choose College, Post-Secondary, the Military, or the Work force? Our students will be prepared for any of the options.
Fifth Grade – 2021
Fourth Grade – 2022
Third Grade – 2023
Second Grade – 2024
First Grade – 2025
Kindergarten – 2026
I am excited to join the amazing and dedicated staff, incredible students and families in preparing the students for an amazing future. I look forward to meeting each of you and being able to provide your child with a quality education.
