Thank you for the warm welcome during my transition into this role as the proud new Principal of David T. Howard Middle School. While I am an experienced principal, I am new to some of the Atlanta Public Schools processes and procedures, with the GO Team being one of these elements. As a result, unfortunately, I was not able to engage with the Go Team in time to move forward with a full implementation of our clear book bag process this school year. Please note, that I am a quick study, and will immerse myself in all aspects of collaborating and engaging with our Howard Go Team moving forward. Consequently, we will need to revise the language in our student handbook to reflect this revision. Our communication to parents will now state that “Howard Middle School encourages all parents to purchase clear book bags for students for the 2022-23 school year. However, students will not be penalized for not having a clear book bag.” The Howard Middle School administration stands committed to proactively engage our Go Team concerning matters like this in the future. We would also like to take this time to cordially invite you to our annual APS Back to School Bash on Saturday, July 30th at the Georgia World Congress Center, where free clear book bags will be given away to APS students. Parents, as always, thank you for your support and we apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused.
On July 19, 2022, history was made as DT Howard's gymnasium was dedicated to the great Walt Fraizer! What a monumental moment! See more in the Howard Newsroom!
