Howe School of Excellence wants to ensure that our students are practicing their reading, math, and science daily both in-school and at home.

New Pre-School Application

CPS is launching a new program for PreK called Chicago Ready to Learn. ALL CPS SCHOOLS are required to apply if they want to have a PreK program in their buildings for the 2013-2014 school year. If an application is denied, the school cannot have Pre-K classes. Please know that Ms. Palmer, our PreK teacher, has been working hard to be sure that this application is completed. PreK is the foundation for our students to be successful in kindergarten and beyond both academically and socially!

The weather is changing from fall to winter and it is essential that your children come dressed for the weather. Please be advised that students are at recess for 15 to 20 minutes every day. Your child MUST have a coat/jacket and be dressed warm to enjoy this time outside!
