Hello and welcome to HOW Elementary.  I’m Tracy Smith, your new counselor, and super

excited to meet everyone and start the year.  Mrs. Stanley is glad to be returning and

  • Red Ribbon Week is just around the corner, and we have some fun, unique dress up days.  
    • Monday: 

Every 6 weeks, we will go into each classroom and teach character

building lessons and activities.  Throughout the year, we will meet with

students in the classroom setting for guidance lessons, small groups for

specific areas of need, and individually to provide more specific support. 

Mrs. Stanley and I will use a variety of programs to teach skills for social

and academic success.    


Parents and guardians, you can always reach Ms. Smith at either or 254-729-4177 and Mrs. Stanley at or 254-729-4611 to discuss any needs
