Mrs. Morris reflects on the upcoming school year, "I am looking forward to my new role as Elementary Principal. I have high hopes and expectations for Howe Elementary. I want to spend my time in this position helping to build a school culture that is about fostering relationships, teaching respect and responsibility across the school, and finding new ways to help our students both academically and emotionally. We are a family at Howe, and I am excited to start this new journey with my family."
