Welcome to all returning and new Howard families!!
Howard Junior P.S. is a very special school in supportive community, and it is going to be another great year! This is in part due to the huge efforts of the Howard Home & School Council. Through fantastic events like the Fall Fete, the Home & School Council builds community, raises money, and funds a ton of programming and equipment for our kids including:
sports equipment new computers
theatre, dance and music experiences mental health supports
visiting artists new playground equipment
STEM initiatives and more!
Our Annual Direct Ask Campaign is the foundation of Home & School Council fundraising. We ask for one donation, at the beginning of the school year, so Home & School can plan and budget for the year to come.
Unlike fundraising campaigns where parents are meant to purchase magazines or other products, with a direct donation, every dollar goes to Howard. Better for Howard; better for the environment.
Our annual Direct Ask goal is $15,000.
The suggested, optional donation amount is $50 per student. If you can donate more than that, please do — to support programming and to cover the donation for a family who is not in a position to donate. All donations, small or large, are appreciated. Those over $20 receive a tax receipt.
The method of payment is schoolcashonline.com. Click on “Items” and then “Make a Donation”.
Thank you for your support, from the Howard Fundraising Team (Leslie Nicholson, Gail Cecil, Denise Gray & Sheila Gibb – firstname.lastname@example.org)
