Howard Elementary School

Our Mission

Howard Elementary Mission

We, the Howard School community,
foster an environment which nurtures
academic excellence, social conscience
and personal potential.
Our staff believes that:

Academic excellence is the mastery by individuals at their highest level of potential in the areas of math, reading, writing, science and social studies.

Social conscience is the understanding and application to one’s daily life, the core values of honesty, integrity, respect for self and others, responsibility, courtesy and citizenship. It also implies that students will become contributing members of society in the community and the world.

Personal potential is the student finding and defining his own strengths both academic and non-adademic. It also means seeking out opportunities for continued learning.

Our students reflect these beliefs in the student pledge which is recited daily in the classroom.

Howard School Pledge

I believe school is important. Today I will do my best to learn, to achieve, to follow school rules and to respect the rights of others. I am proud of myself and my community. I am a Howard School student.
