Poetry and Photography Exibit:
Room 8 fifth and sixth graders will be exhibiting their own photos and performing original poems at P.U.C.’s Music Hall (Paulen Hall) Wednesday, January 24, at 6:30 P.M.
The class was invited to participate in the project by Napa County’s poet laureate, Beclee Wilson.
The Studio on Main graciously provided students with disposable cameras, a brief photography lesson, and developed their pictures.
After the students selected their best shot, Miss Beclee provided a jumpstart lesson on poetry writing.
The students have begun crafting their poems and will have polished poetic pieces, all inspired by their own photos.
Along with the fifth grade class from P.U.C. Elementary, our fifth and sixth grade students will perform their own poems, to a backdrop of their pictures.
Mr. Luque and Room 8 students invite everyone from Howell Mountain Elementary and the Angwin community to join them in an evening of artistic performance.
Thank you to all who came out last night and helped us celebrate this joyous season. Happy Holidays from the staff at Howell Mountain School.
Plan to Recover Lost Time
2017-18 Instructional Time Recovery Plan
Dear Howell Mountain Families,
As you are aware, the devastating fires in October of this year, caused a 10-day closure of Howell Mountain Elementary. With much consideration and consultation, it has been decided that the school district’s calendar will remain the same. Our teachers will address learning time lost by adjusting their lesson plans and instructional practices that will ensure that all the standards are taught within the existing school calendar.
The district wishes to thank everyone in the Howell Mountain community for their efforts in supporting the health and well-being of all our students. We pride ourselves on placing the needs of students first.
