Principal’s Message

Welcome Families!

At the heart of Howell Road you will find a devoted team of students, parents, faculty, administrators, 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. The experiences that each one of us brings into our Howell “home” are valued, respected, and included as we find a common bond that is grounded in two principles. We believe that having a genuine sense of belonging to our school community is paramount to the success of our students. We also continuously strive to promote that we 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. Challenging academic and varied social­-emotional learning experiences are thoughtfully crafted to propel our students through their elementary school years and beyond. In addition to traditional academic areas, students are encouraged to develop their interests and talents in the areas of music, art, physical education, and technology.

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.
