Here at Howard, we believe that the initial steps in education begin here and we are dedicated to developing lifelong learners. We do this by providing a secure, caring and nurturing environment to enable students to develop the desire and passion for learning both now and in the future. Our skilled, dedicated staff welcomes children into the classes where differences as well as similarities are accepted. Responsibility and respect for each individual are emphasized.
The passion for learning is contagious. We believe that creating the passion for learning is a large part of our responsibility as educators. Our staff is an enthusiastic, energetic and dedicated team who encourage students to develop the desire to learn.
Education is also a partnership between the school and the home and we strive to maintain close contact with families through regularly scheduled meetings, our Wednesday Family Folder, progress reports and benchmark report cards. We encourage home and school communication to develop awareness about the schools' academic programs and share in planned school/parent group planned activities.
We welcome you to our web site, confident that it will reflect our pride, serve as a source of information about Howard and its' programs and provide access to our staff through email. Please feel free to contact us with any questions and share any suggestions you might have for improvements. You may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
