i went to howevalley elem. and i wish i lived closer so my daughter could have had the opportunity to attend such a great school. Mr. Lawrence, Ms. Cofer, ms. Coomer, ms. Williams, ms. densmore, all great teachers. i hate to hear the school is closing. so many memories, so many friends, so many stories to be told about the school. i had so much fun there and the teachers would stop to help, there was only 20-25 students in each class, so each got attention and assistance when needed. the school board needs to open a community center in the school, so parents could take there children so play on the playgrounds and make it kind of like the pritchard comm. center. it could help the hardin county income of money and after about a year it would greatly help with the board of education having so many cut backs that prevent our children from learning as much as we did when we went to school.
