Fall Fete – Saturday, October 18th – Save the Date

Please mark your calendars! This year’s Fall Fete will take place on Saturday, October 18th, 2014 from 10am to 2pm!!

The Fall Fete engages our school community in a single-minded pursuit of fun and funds. Last year the Fete raised over $25,000! Where does that money go? To the Howard Home and School Association to pay for things like your child’s field trips, scientist in the classroom, playground equipment, new books and more.

Have a resolution to get more involved at your child’s school this year? It takes a small army to run the Fete and our work starts now! We are looking for over 100 volunteers who have continually made this event such a tremendous success. Among many other roles, we are looking for someone to coordinate the Trade-Up Table. We also have a number of volunteers “graduating” this year. If you’d like to learn the ropes, please consider shadowing these expert volunteers, including Chair/Vice-Chair and Coordinators for the Cake Walk, Haunted House, Volunteer Recruitment, Lunch Table and Set Up & Tear Down.

There are also many, many event-day volunteers needed. We will let you know as soon as the sign-up website is up and running!

If you are interested in working on the Fall Fete or want more information on how you can help, please contact Treva Thompson (trevat@gmail.com) or Stacey Kushnir (stacey.kushnir@gmail.com), or use the contact form at the bottom of our volunteer page.

As always, please share your ideas about the Fall Fete, changes or improvements you’d like to see or things you really like and would like to keep the same. The Fall Fete is, above all, an illustration of our school community coming together – something at which Howard excels. We look forward to working with all of you to continue this tradition of success.
