Who We Are
Welcome to Howard Elementary
"Home of the Huskies"
Welcome to Howard Elementary School, Home of the Howard Huskies!
A Message from Principal, Kristin Ashley
I am so excited to welcome you and your family to Howard Elementary. As a district, our mission is to work together with our families to build a community of learners who will have the knowledge and skills to succeed in a changing world. We also try to honor our vision of having an “authentic, innovative, connected, inspired experience for an ever-changing future.” We know that to do this we must believe that every student has the right to learn, we must think about unique strengths and gifts that each of us have, we must embrace innovative thinking and we must all work together to achieve success.
At Howard, we are devoted to supporting our students to become life-long learners. Our goal is to focus on providing a secure, caring, and nurturing environment where a community of learners can grow in their academic skills, as well as develop how they relate and work together. We want all students to develop a passion for learning that will be fostered now and will carry them into the future.
Our skilled, dedicated staff welcome children into their classrooms where we acknowledge and celebrate our similarities and differences. We focus on the importance of “Being Safe, Being Respectful, Being Responsible and Being Kind.” Here at Howard we see our staff as a family and we look forward to working with yours!
Personally, I have a passion for building relationships with my staff, our families, and our students. Together we will be able to support each other to do amazing things. We will continue our strong focus on literacy and looking at the unique strength that all of our students have. The Howard-Suamico area is a very unique community, and I am proud to be part of what we are doing here!
We look forward to welcoming you to be active in your child’s education! The elementary school years are an amazing and fast paced time for our children, and we will work together to build a positive experience for them. We welcome your family to participate in our school activities, and to support your students at home. This positive school-home partnership will have many benefits towards the success of our school year.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or concerns.
