Peter Howell Elementary

School Photos - Hoot Gibson Visit
Former astronaut Hoot Gibson visited Peter Howell Elementary to share captivating tales of his space adventures and emphasize the importance of STEM fields. Mr. Gibson engaged with students by signing autographs, taking pictures, and answering questions from all grades. The event kicked off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony for our school's garden, where seeds previously sent beyond Earth's atmosphere were planted by our principal and the esteemed astronaut.
