Call for Photos of the Howard Playground

Hello Howard Community,

The playground committee is in search of your photos and videos of the Howard outdoor space: the good, the bad and the ugly.

Help us document the true value of the Howard space by sharing photos and videos of you and your family using it.

  • We need photos and video that show how wonderful experiencing the space can be. Have you captured any joyful moments of kids laughing, grandparents smiling, etc?

  • We equally need documentation of worn out and broken equipment, mud pits and pine needle mountains. The school yard has four seasons of shame that we could show. We all know this revitalization is essential: help us make our case.

  • Similarly, we know there has been more than a fair share of broken arms, fractured legs and other hospital-worthy injuries, and these images can be potent. Please share yours with us.

How you can help:

  • Email photos and video to howardplayground@gmail.com

  • If the files are too big to send via email, please put them into a Google Drive folder and share the folder with howardplayground@gmail.com

  • If you aren’t a Google Drive person, please put your photos and/or video onto a USB thumb drive and give it to one of the Engagement Committee members (Samantha Rupert, Lee Greenberg, Joe Rafuse, Crystal Rickard, Sima Gandhi or Debbie Croft)

How your photos and videos may be used:

  • On the school yard website howardschoolyard.ca

  • Within an email to the Howard community

  • On the school yard campaign’s Facebook page

  • In a tweet or Instagram message

  • On a printed poster given to local businesses

  • On a printed postcard distributed to homes in our school zone

***Please keep in mind that by sharing your photos with the school yard campaign, you are giving us permission to share them on these channels.***

If you have any questions, concerns, suggestions or words of encouragement, please contact howardplayground@gmail.com or any of the committee members.

Thank you for your support!

Sincerely,

Samantha, Lee, Joe, Crystal, Sima, Debbie and all the other volunteers
