Howard T. Herber school building


Howard T. Herber Middle School is located in the Village of Malverne. The school district itself includes a portion of the Village of Malverne, as well as other portions of the Villages of Lynbrook, Rockville Centre, West Hempstead and the unincorporated areas of Malverne and North Lynbrook. Students in grades 6 through 8 attend Howard T. Herber Middle School. We are "dedicated to strive for excellence" for all of our students. Herber has a variety of extra-curricular activities for its students, as well as Herber MULES Sports for 7th and 8th graders. Early adolescence is a critical period in which students must make a transition between the protective environment of the elementary school and the more demanding high school setting which requires individual responsibility, emotional maturity and independent decision making. It is the role of Howard T. Herber Middle School to provide for these students a nurturing and forgiving atmosphere in which they are encouraged to take risks and yet feel secure within a consistent and supportive educational structure. In such an environment, our students will be guided effectively and purposefully toward becoming caring, capable and ethical young adults able to make responsible choices and adapt to the changing society of the 21st century.

HTH Black History Showcase

The HTH Creativity Club's Black History Showcase was an extraordinary celebration that held immense significance. It provided a powerful platform for students to honor the profound legacy of Black history and culture. More than a mere display of performances, this showcase embodied empowerment, urging our students to recognize and celebrate the invaluable contributions of Black trailblazers who have shaped the course of history.

Beyond the spotlight, the event became a pivotal moment for students to connect with their heritage, fostering a deeper understanding of the struggles and triumphs of the past. It served as an inspiration drawn from the resilience and achievements of those who paved the way.

As our students showcased their talents and expressed their creativity, the event became a celebration of diversity within a supportive and inclusive environment. This showcase transcended the ordinary; it was a meaningful occasion for our students to unite, learn, grow and proudly honor the rich tapestry of Black history that has intricately woven the fabric of who we are today.

Congratulations to all the students who contributed their time, energy and talent on the stage and behind the scenes. Special thanks to Ms. Campbell for organizing this special event.

Congratulations to all who made the 38th annual Malverne UFSD Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration a spectacular success, including the incredible members of our community to joined together in strength and solidarity to honor the life and legacy of MLK!

Following the Pledge of Allegiance by Downing first graders Nathaniel Green and Dorina Reid, Davison fourth grader Emily Severe led an inspired singalong of the James Weldon Johnson hymn “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”

Next, assistant principal Mr. Stephen Benfante highlighted the notable attendees in the audience, including many elected officials and introduced Reverend Salley who led the Invocation, followed by a warm welcome by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Lorna Lewis.

In her speech, Dr. Lewis shared how Dr. King’s passion is felt beyond the borders of America and impacts people throughout the world working towards justice and equality. She also reminded us how his actions on May 12, 1965 opened the doors to racial integration in the Malverne and Lakeview community and changed our district forever.

The Herber Video Production Class put together an amazing video tribute entitled “Dream: Malverne and the Spirit of MLK” featuring interviews with faculty and students telling us how relationships formed in Malverne have impacted their lives in meaningful and lasting ways.

Performances that entertained and inspired the audience throughout the night included a rhythmic dance routine by the HTH Creativity Club performed to the song “Spirit” by Beyonce and original poetry readings by Malverne High School Poet Laureates Ucheomachi Alozie and Nirvana Cole. The Malverne High School Select Choir performed the traditional African American Spiritual “Children, Go Where I Send Thee”, the Davison Avenue Glee Club treated us to “We Shall Overcome” and “Turn to Each Other” and the Downing Performers brought us the finale of the evening with a moving rendition of “When the Lights All Shine” followed by a standing ovation.

Special congratulations go out to our MLK Jr. Humanitarian Award honorees Mr. Jason Mach and Ms. Natasha Reynolds who both contribute so much to the Malverne community with their words and actions. We are so grateful for your service to our students and the entire Malverne community.
