Dear Families,

The Annual Got Art county-wide art show opened this week at the Howell Opera House. The show is split into two parts, a secondary show, and an elementary show. Artwork created by talented student artists from middle and high schools around the county is on display through March 13. Starting on March 15 and running through March 19, artwork created by elementary students will be displayed. The show is free and open to the public. Hours for the show are 4:00 pm through 8:00 pm Tuesday thru Friday and from Noon through 5:00 pm on Saturday & Sunday. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to have their works displayed.

Recently we learned that Elisabeth Bonanni, a senior at Howell High School, has advanced to the finalist stage of the National Merit Scholarship Program. Elisabeth is one of only 15,000 students nationwide to advance to this level of the program. To be named a finalist, Bonanni had to complete a detailed application, write an essay, be endorsed by a school official, maintain a record of high academic performance and earn an SAT score that confirmed her performance on the PSAT.

The Howell High School Varsity and JV Quiz Bowl teams had an outstanding season this year, which ended with both teams being named league champions. In their final matches, the Varsity team went 3-0, beating out Hartland, Livonia Churchill, and Novi to claim their first league championship. The JV team was 2-1 in their final matches to claim their first league championship. Both teams ended the season with a record of 10-2. From the various teams, Emma Craig (varsity), Havan Kuncaitis (novice), and Liam Clark (JV) were named league MVPs.

Third-grade students at Challenger Elementary had a unique visitor this week. Wilbur, the pig, stopped by the school to help get students excited about reading the book Charlotte's Web. One of the school's teachers, Abby Aldred, brought the piglet in from her family's farm. The students loved seeing the piglet and helping to take care of it. Wilbur's visit is a prime example of the many innovative, unique, and creative ways our outstanding teachers and staff think outside of the box to get our students excited about learning and engaged in the curriculum.

Next Thursday, March 17, is opening night for Parker Middle School's production of Disney's Beauty and the Beast. The cast and crew have worked very hard to bring this classic story to life, and I am sure the show will be incredible. To read more about it, please visit
