Howard Gr. 6 CLAP – OUT

It is a Howard tradition to “ clap out” the departing grade 6 students on the last day of school.  We are delighted to invite parents to attend and celebrate this important transition with their children.  On  Thursday, June 29th 2017 the Grade 1 to 5 classes will gather outside just before 3:30 pm, and when the bell rings, the Grade 6 students will process out with their teachers, through the Howard Park doors, to be cheered on by the Howard Community.

Looking forward to seeing many of you at this heart-warming event!

Pics for Grade 6 Graduation

Grade 6 Graduation will take place on Wednesday, June 28th 2017, at 5pm.  We are collecting photos of grade 6 students to use in the traditional grad slide show.  These would be digital photos of Grade 6 Howard students doing “ Howard things” ( sports, musical, events, etc.) at any age or stage of their school careers.

Please email them to Elizabeth Mankiewicz by Monday June 26thElizabeth.Mankiewicz@Tdsb.on.ca

Thank you!

THANK YOU for helping to make our Heart & Stroke
Jump Rope for Heart event a success!

Dear Parents,

This year, we raised $6526 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation – thanks to your support!

Supporting kids’ health for more than 35 years, the Heart and Stroke Foundation encourages kids to get active while they collect pledges for heart disease and stroke research. Jump Rope for Heart ensures a fun, active Event Day and provides students with information that encourages healthy eating, daily physical activity and giving back to the community.

In addition to raising funds to support the organizations’ mission, JUMP activates our kids to embrace a lifetime of healthy living and social responsibility.

Plus, thanks to your generosity, our school also earned valuable resources through the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s School Give-back Program.

Together, we will continue to protect hearts and keep all kids healthy.

Yours Very Truly,
Howard PS Staff
