A new reading corner was dedicated during the February staff meeting. Mrs. Howard's Haven was made possible by a generous donation from former prinicipal Sandra M. Howard's family. Mrs. Howard was principal at James Clark for seventeen years before she retired in 2011.
To honor her memory, and her love of literacy, a special area was created in the library. This "Haven" is for children to use during their library visit. The chairs and rug are in Mrs. Howard's favorite color - purple. A photo collage also contains a short biography of Mrs. Howard and her impact on James Clark School.
