Howard will be having a “Carnaval” this year! It will consist of an exciting morning where students from grades 1 to 5 will be on teams that will travel from activity to activity where they will be met by Grade 6 students running the stations.
The teachers organizing the winter carnival are requesting 6 parent volunteers to help with our 2 food/drink stations.
Responsibilities for March 2nd would include:
-selection of food/drink (possibly hot apple cider for one station and something to eat at the other -preferably something French-Canadian/maple-“syrupy”)
-purchasing items/procuring equipment for preparation
-serving to students
-taking down the station
We would be so grateful to have this assistance!
Please inform Jill Durrant of your interest at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Un gros merci!
