Zoom Meeting Link:


  • Science of Reading Workshop: TDSB Speech and Language Pathologist, Kirstin Boucher, will explain what the Science of Reading is, how Howard staff are applying it when teaching our kids, and ways we can support our kids’ literacy development at home.
  • Principal’s Update: Every School Council meeting includes an update from our Principal with time for questions. It’s casual and informative and a great way — especially for new families — to understand how the school runs and how to get information and help.

If you cannot attend or prefer to ask questions anonymously, please submit your questions here.
