Dance-A-Thon Fundraising Starts This Friday!

Hello Howard Community,

I am very excited to announce that the countdown to our DANCE-A-THON has begun!

Mark your calendars for this year the Dance-a-thon on Thursday, February 13th.

Our pep rally will happen on Friday, January 31st, at 1 pm. Pledge envelopes will go home on that day and students can begin fundraising.

This year the Home and School Association has decided to share the funds raised from Dance-a-thon with two meaningful initiatives. The first $1000 raised will be donated to Lambton Park Community School, located at Scarlett Road and St. Clair, to fund the launch of their Girls on The Run program.  Any additional money raised will be donated to the construction of the Sorauren Park Community Centre.

This is my first year organizing the Dance-a-thon, taking the reins from the wonderful Julia Gallagher. I hope that this year will be as successful as the previous years. I know that it’ll be fun. I would like to invite all parents to join us for the day of dance in the gym. I will ideally need one volunteer per class to help me supervise our little dancers, so if you’re interested in helping out please fill in the contact form on the Dance-A-Thon page, with what class you’d like to volunteer for.  All day volunteers are of course welcome.

Hope to hear from you!
