Administration

Glen Alpine Elementary

Caroline Howard, Principal


Dear Glen Alpine Families, 


My name is Caroline Howard and I am excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Glen Alpine Elementary School! I welcome the opportunity to serve the Glen Alpine learning and teaching community and look forward to working with a dynamic staff, dedicated parents and involved community members. Most of all, I look forward to working with our students and continuing the outstanding work at Glen Alpine Elementary School! 


I come to Glen Alpine with several years of teaching experience at the elementary and middle school levels. I became an educator because I enjoyed working with children, and I wanted to leave a positive, lasting impact on their lives. While teaching, I realized that I wanted to be able to help more students than just who I had in my classroom. So, I went on to obtain my administration licensure. Since then, I have served as an Assistant Principal at both Table Rock Middle School and Freedom High School. I believe that as educators we have a duty to not only prepare our students academically for the next steps in their career, but we also have to give them the tools that they need to succeed as productive members of society.


As part of my regular routine once school begins, you will find me out and about on campus during morning arrivals, afternoon dismissals, and throughout the day. Please feel free to contact me at anytime with questions or concerns about your student or the school. Communication between the school and home is key to the success of our students. Please make sure that you check your child’s planner nightly for information about what is going on in their classroom. 


I will be holding a Meet the Principal Night on Tuesday, July 25th from 4pm-6pm in the Glen Alpine Elementary cafeteria. I look forward to the opportunity to meet and begin my relationship with the students, staff, and families of the Glen Alpine Elementary School Community. 



Sincerely, 

Caroline Howard
