Principal’s Message:

We Are Family, Working Together Great Things Happen!
Howell Road Elementary School is a community of learners that is dedicated to working together to make great things happen. At the heart of Howell Road you will find a devoted team of administrators, parents, faculty, students, and staff whose collaborative spirit results in finding success in each other, some way, every day.We delight in the fact that our student body is representative of a wealth of various cultural backgrounds and languages. The experiences that each one of us brings into our Howell “home” are valued and respected. We find a common bond that is grounded in two principles. We feel that being the best one can be rests within oneself. We also continuously strive to treat others the way we want to be treated.With every beginning at Howell, from the momentous first day of the school year in September to the routine start of a school day as the year progresses and finally draws to a close, we are proud to offer our young scholars a high­-quality, engaging curriculum. The use of Google Apps and staff web pages enhances all subject matter and affords our students the opportunity to connect globally as well as with one another when completing projects and activities during the school day and beyond. In addition, our young well-rounded citizens are encouraged to develop their interests and talents in the areas of music, art, and physical education. The challenging academic and social­-emotional learning experiences that are presented to our students in all disciplines are thoughtfully crafted to propel them through their elementary school years and beyond.We believe in the promise of the yet to be or the yet to come as we guide all of our young scholars on their journey of learning in a nurturing environment where they may confidently take the risks that promote meaningful experiences. Children soar through stages of learning and development at varying rates. As a compassionate community of learners, we embrace these differences and strive to provide the necessary, yet flexible, levels of support, instruction, and encouragement that allow our students to participate both academically and socially in an inclusive learning environment.As your principal, I sincerely welcome you into the exceptional community of learners that is at the heart of Howell Road Elementary School.
