Principal's Message

June 14, 2022

Welcome to the Howe Avenue Elementary School website. The purpose of this webpage is to provide parents, students, and our school community with easy access to a wealth of information on our Howe Avenue Elementary programs, policies, and activities.

Howe Avenue Elementary School is a great place to teach and learn! Our teachers are committed to a high quality learning experience focused on the individual needs of each child. We are striving to be creative and innovative in our instruction to engage students in their learning through our No Excuses University program.  We believe that all students are capable of attending college if they choose, and it is our job to prepare them for that possibility.

Howe Avenue Elementary School serves approximately 850 students from preschool through grade 5 in the Arden-Arcade area of Sacramento County.  Our school community has a long-standing tradition of excellence in providing English Language Development to our newcomers, plus many opportunities exist for students to engage in extracurricular music, drama and sports.

Our primary goal at Howe Avenue Elementary School is to help all students achieve their dreams and find success in pursuing life goals. We are unconditionally committed to providing the best possible educational program for our students. We believe that there are numerous opportunities, both within our curricula and through extracurricular activities, for our students to gain the skills that will allow them to be successful in their lives beyond elementary school.

If you need general information or wish to directly contact staff at Howe Avenue Elementary School, you may use the Staff Directory on the website, call 916-971-5165 or email

Go Dolphins! Sincerely, Principal Christina Allison
