School Song

"Howe School will always be the best school.  We all can make it so.  Our Pride, Our Glory and Our Honor will guide us as we go.  The teachers always help to lead us on to reach our goal.  Howe School will always be the best school, 'til rivers cease to flow.  Go Bulldogs!  Fight Bulldogs! Win, Win, Win!!!"
