Message from Francis Howell Activities Director Sean Erwin
Welcome to Francis Howell High School and to the Viking family. It’s a great day to be a Viking!
At Howell, interscholastic athletics and activities are an extension of the classroom and the overall educational process. They provide valuable lessons for those involved. Teamwork, sportsmanship, self-discipline, self-confidence, citizenship, and pride in community are all developed through active participation in Howell activities. These are all qualities we would like to see in Howell students which ultimately helps to develop responsible adults and productive citizens after high school.
In my time at Howell I have seen the passion of students, staff, and community members for our students and their accomplishments. The very dedicated staff and student-participants in Howell activities work hard to win not only in their activities but also in the classroom. The pride and support of the Howell community provides a foundation for all of these great things to happen. The Activities Department has experienced success in conference, district, and state competition over the years and it is our goal to build on this success.
Our students, athletes, coaches, sponsors, and staff will set high standards and strive for continuous improvement and success in Howell activities. As a member of an activity, club, or sport at Howell you will be part of a group of students that represent Howell and that value academic excellence, student-participant development, competitive success, and value to community. All student-participants will strive to be model citizens and work to display the Howell Activities Department core values of Respect, Integrity, Sportsmanship, and Excellence (RISE). Participants in Howell activities are leaders both in and out of school. As a student participant at Howell we will take great pride not only in our success but in the way we represent our school, district, and community.
It is my hope that you will become involved in an activity, club, or sport at Howell and be a part of the success our programs experience. As we strive to improve our programs on a daily basis please feel free to contact me with any questions that you have or with any feedback that you can provide as we all work together to make Howell activities the best in the state. Go Vikings!
