The National Network of Partnership Schools [NNPS] at Johns Hopkins University recognizes schools that organize and sustain excellent programs of family and community involvement. This year, five Francis Howell School District school programs have been recognized as “Promising Practices,” earning them a prestigious place in the NNPS annual publication.
The schools and programs recognized as Promising Practices are: Francis Howell North, “Eighth Grade Family Knights;” Francis Howell Middle, “Career Café;” Castlio Elementary, “STREAM Night;” Harvest Ridge Elementary, “One School, Many Cultures;” and Independence Elementary, “Slam Dunk into Wellness.”
“High-quality community engagement is vitally important at both the school and district level,” Superintendent Dr. Mary Hendricks-Harris said. “These programs strengthen the relationship between school and home, and help to improve the quality education that we are able to provide for all of our students.”
