From the Principal

Welcome to the Houlton Elementary website! 

This summer, we are busy preparing for next year!  The custodial staff has been getting the building ready for a new year of learning, by cleaning, painting, and giving the media center a new look, Outside, we're working on replacing the greenhouse. It's been a busy summer already!

At Houlton, our school mission is based on three things:  Students staff and families learn, care and grow by working together, thinking deeply, and caring for our community.  This provides the focus for everything we do.
I look forward to another year of learning and partnership with students, parents, and the Houlton community.  If you have questions or comments, please feel free to e-mail or call me at 715-377-3850.  Have a wonderful summer, and see you next fall!
