A New Space for Student Well-Being
The Mental Health & Wellness Committee and Howard School Council are excited to announce the opening of the Hawk’s Nest Calming Space, a dedicated onsite space designed to support student mental and emotional health.
The Hawk’s Nest features various areas including a book nook, an art station, a stretching corner, and a music space. Collectively, the areas create a calming and energizing environment that all students will be encouraged to use as part of an accommodation, when feeling overwhelmed, or when in need of a quiet space for self care.
Thank you students and teachers for sharing your ideas and feedback. All of your voices are important and helped to design a space that is inclusive and accessible.
The development of this space was lead by Howard parent, Ashley Wood-Suszko; staff member, Ivana Simanic; and Principal Lovenia Gorman. Thank you for your vision, energy, and time!
The Hawk’s Nest Calming Space was funded by the generous donations of Howard families. Your participation in fundraising events and programs like Fall Fête, Pizza Lunch, and the Spring Social make exceptional projects like this one possible. Thank you!
We are also sincerely grateful for the items generously donated by local businesses. Thank you to:
