Principal Benjamin Peters
Howard R. Driggs Elementary School is located in Holladay City, Utah. We serve over 640 students. Driggs staff members work hard to provide a safe learning environment where the student comes first. Our motto is, The Student First and Always. In addition to providing a rigorous, meaningful and equitable educational experience, we maintain a community of support that models respect, hard work and the value of each unique individual. Driggs is proud of its’ thriving visual arts program. Students are able to work with paint and ceramics and several other modes. Art lessons are tied to curriculum that students are learning in class.
In addition to the visual arts, Driggs is proud to be a recipient of the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Art Grant. We are lucky enough to have Mrs. Herd, a licensed music teacher. Students receive a 45 minute music lesson twice a month in her classroom. Students learn music and song that is tied to the curriculum they are learning in the classroom. Because of the generosity of Driggs community members, students have access to drums, ukuleles, recorders, xylophones and glockenspiels.
This year we have added a S.T.E.M. Club that meets before and after school to work on fun challenging hands on projects. The parents of Driggs students are a key component to the success of every child. We welcome and encourage the volunteer efforts of all who desire to help Driggs students reach their greatest potential. Howard R. Driggs is one of the best little public schools in America.
