Welcome to Howard Elementary!
Home of the Huskies!
On behalf of our school community, I would like to welcome you and your family to Howard Elementary School. We are proud to provide quality education and other resources to a vibrant community. Currently, our school is comprised of approximately 400 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. We have wonderfully diverse backgrounds which are celebrated in many ways at our school. Our school has a cooperative and collaborative spirit and we always encourage the involvement of parents in all aspects of school life. We have a learning environment which embraces students, families, staff and the community of Grand Island.
Howard Elementary School's mission is to develop contributing, lifelong, independent learners of the community, through interactive relationships between home and school. Howard staff believes that all students are capable of learning, that students and staff are entitled to a safe environment, all children are entitled to a quality education, staff needs to continue learning and improving instruction, every child is worthwhile and their feelings have value, students should be accountable for their actions and the educational program is interactive, exciting and goal oriented.
I wish you and your child much happiness as you begin your journey in education with us at Howard Elementary.
- Julie Schnitzler, Principal
