Kindergarten Enrollment Information

It’s time to start thinking about where to send your kindergarten age child to school next fall.  I would like to recommend Howard Elementary School.  Our school is strongly connected to the community and enjoys great support.  Students receive carefully planned instruction in all curriculum areas, including library, full-time counseling, physical education and music.  Howard is a premier technology academy and students have access to their own laptop or iPad in grades 1 – 5, with Kindergartners enjoying a 1:2 student to laptop ratio. We have been honored, three years in a row, as an Apple Distinguished School; the first in Oregon and the first 1:1 program in Oregon as well! Parents are considered essential partners at school and are welcome to participate throughout the year.  Howard is an exceptional place for children and I invite you to come see the special experience Howard Elementary can provide for your child. Please start your visit in the office.

Please be sure and check our website for additional information. If you have any further questions please contact Lori in the school office at 541-790-4900.
