Anyone interested in signing up for the summer school fitness class please pick up a form in the Office, from Coach Schmid, or Coach Scheel. There are 4 different times to sign-up for, no matter what your level of experience is or what sport you play. This class is for all students who want to be more physically fit. You do not have to be an athlete or out for a sport in order to sign up for this class. Girls are encouraged to sign-up as well.

All students at Howards Grove High School (Grades 9-12) and their guests are invited to attend the prom. One guest is allowed per student. A dance guest card must be filled out and returned to the office by Thursday May 8th. Remember you are responsible for your guest while at prom. Please inform him or her of the dance regulations and expectations concerning dress and behavior. We do ask that gentlemen wear a dress shirt and dress pants and ladies wear a formal dress. Because this is a formal dance and a very special evening, jeans of any color are not considered appropriate attire and hats of any kind are to be removed upon entry. All rules regarding student behavior and dress code will apply while at the dance and be enforced. Once a student enters, he or she is expected to remain for the entire dance. If a student leaves the dance, he or she will not be able to re-enter the dance. Tickets for prom can be purchased during the lunch periods outside the office starting May 1st through May 8th. The price is $20.00 per person or $40.00 per couple. Students with outstanding fines or fees will not be allowed to purchase or receive prom tickets until all obligations have been met. The ticket price does not include dinner at Lakeland College. Parents are welcome at all prom activities, and we hope to see them there. If you have any further questions concerning prom, you may contact the class advisor Mr. Wyrembeck at the high school at 565-4450.
Please bring in any information on any scholarships you have received. We will make a copy or if you already have a copy to submit that is good too. We would like to acknowledge this at Senior Scholarship Night on Wednesday, May 21st. More information to follow on Senior Scholarship Night.
