Donations and Volunteers Needed for Staff Appreciation Luncheon on June 18

StaffAppreciationCrop

Dear parents and Howard supporters,

We need you!!! The annual staff appreciation luncheon is:

next Tuesday, June 18 from 11:45am-1:30pm.

This event has been a great success in previous years thanks to parent and caregiver donations and volunteering.

We need donations of food and gifts, as well as volunteers to help set-up and clean-up on the day of the event. Just an hour of your time! The entire event relies on donations; Home and School funds cannot be allocated for it. Please give generously and sign up using https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0E45A4AA2FA5FD0-donations

Donations of cash or cheque should be put into an envelope and left – clearly labeled – at the office in the folder “Luncheon”, while wine for the raffle and cutlery can be put in the basket in the office by Monday, June 17th. Sending an Interac e-transfer to one of us is fine too. Food items should be brought to the staff room on June 18 anytime prior to the luncheon at 11:45am.

Thank you in advance for your efforts. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Sophie & Lesley

Howard Community Pizza Potluck 2019 RSVP & Volunteer Sign-Up

HOWARD COMMUNITY PIZZA POTLUCK 2019
RSVP AND VOLUNTEER SIGN-UP

It’s nearly summer and once again time for our annual school potluck picnic – with pizza! All Howard families, as well as past students accompanied by current Howard families, are invited to pull up a blanket, celebrate our wonderful community, and share some tasty food… and pizza! All are welcome, though all children must be accompanied by parents.

POTLUCK DETAILS:
DATE: THURSDAY JUNE 20
COST: FREE!!
TIME: 5:30 – 7:30 PM
LOCATION: Food will be set out in the gym, and all are welcome to eat outside!
NO RAIN DATE: If it rains, we will eat in the gym.

NEW THIS YEAR: TWO BIG CHANGES!!

1. WE ARE GOING GARBAGE FREE!!
2. RSVPs AND VOLUNTEER SIGN-UP WILL BE ONLINE

SO…

1. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN PLATES, CUTLERY, AND WATER BOTTLES. WE WILL NOT BE SUPPLYING ANY PLATES, UTENSILS, CUPS OR NAPKINS.

As Howard is a Platinum Eco-School, it’s important that we are conscious of how much waste we create. In the past, this event has generated a lot of waste. So bring a few plates, some cutlery, and a water bottle or two so you can enjoy the fabulous food and treats everyone always brings!

AND…

2. FILL IN THE 1-MINUTE SURVEY HERE: https://tinyurl.com/pizzapotluck2019 TO LET US KNOW YOU ARE COMING AND HOW YOU CAN HELP.

PLEASE RESPOND BY FRIDAY JUNE 14.

VOLUNTEERS: This is an extremely well attended event, historically, so we need your help. Kindly follow the link to let us know how you are able to lend a hand this year: https://tinyurl.com/pizzapotluck2019

A FEW IMPORTANT NOTES:
– NO PEANUTS OR TREE NUTS in your dishes
– Please bring a dish to share that is large enough to serve those coming in your party. We welcome everything! Main, salad, dessert…

See you on the 20th!

Your Community Picnic Team,
Liz Phillips and Liz Pounsett
