Home and School Association – December Update

Dear Howard Families,

At our December meeting we were pleased to announce that Linda Torry has joined Michelle McBride as co-chair and that Tory Millar has joined as vice-chair of the Home and School Association. We have a few roles still to fill if you are interested in volunteering with the Home and School. We are looking for someone to coordinate a spring craft fair and we are still looking for someone to take on the role of volunteer co-ordinator. For more information on either position, please email Michelle at mcbride.mclennan@gmail.com  As always we could use more voices on our athletics council, arts council and technology committees.

We have updated our website to list the team sports offered at Howard along with the season they run in and which teacher is responsible for which sport. Look for the team header near the top of the page.

We are pleased to announce the Home and School will be assisting in the food drive currently underway at the school and as such remind everyone to bring a non-perishable food item in to the drop boxes in the front hallway. We will also be on hand for the kindergarten concert on December 16th and the evening concert on December 17th to collect cash donations for the food bank.

Have a safe and happy holiday, we look forward to seeing you at the next Home and School meeting on January 17th.

Michelle and Linda
