Welcome new HES principal Rhonda Lanie!
Dear Howard Families,
My name is Rhonda Lanie and I am thrilled to have been selected by the Northwestern School Board to serve as principal for Howard Elementary School. I am honored to work with such an outstanding group of staff and administrators as those in Northwestern School Corporation. Rest assured that my goals will be to continue building on what everyone has worked so hard to achieve, and to use that strong foundation to move Howard Elementary forward to the next level. Together we will continue to provide outstanding educational opportunities and academic excellence for all of our students.
Over the last 17 years I have worked as a teacher, instructional coach and administrator, but I consider my most important job to be that of child advocate. The safety, happiness and success of children is my number one priority. I am looking forward to seeing your children through your eyes and getting to know them both as people and learners. I will encourage them every day and let them know they have a special place here at Howard Elementary School.
Not only am I excited about working with your children, but I am also looking forward to the opportunity to work with all of you. You know the old African proverb that states, “It takes a village to raise a child”? I have held this as one of my core beliefs throughout my 17 years in education. It is a priority for me that Howard families, community members and educators work as a team to ensure the best for our children. You should expect my door will always be open to speak with you.
I look forward to the opportunity to meet and begin my relationship with the students, staff, and families of the Howard Elementary School community. I can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or just stop by to introduce yourself any time.
