Pizza Potluck Thanks!

Dear Howard Community,

We couldn’t have done it without you – the Community Pizza and Potluck Picnic this past Tuesday evening was amazing. Thanks to all the wonderful staff who helped on the night or lent us their gear, the parents and kids who brought amazing food and good cheer, and the fantastic volunteers who made the set-up/serving/take-down feel like a fun, well-oiled machine. And a special shout-out to Jerry, our Head Custodian, who always has our back!

A HUGE thank you to Master Mechanic High Park, who generously donated all of the pizza.

And thanks to the STEM folks and their exciting explosions! We loved the entertainment and education. Super fun!

We were also thrilled to see all of the support for our local Parkdale foodbank. Thanks to all those who brought donations!

It was another fabulous picnic, Howard Community! Enjoy your fast-approaching summers!!

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!

Class Contact List – Updates for Next Year

Hello Howard Community,
The Class Contact Lists will be updated over the summer and draft copies will be going home in September. Please let Pamela Smith know if you have any problems with the list (your child’s info was missing this year, your email address has changed, you’ll be moving, you wish to be removed from the list).
Grade 6 student’s information will automatically be removed from the database but all other children’s information will be compiled into next year’s Class Lists.
Your email address is the most important piece of information because, in an effort to save on paper, we only email the Draft copy.
If you were on this year’s Class Contact List, your information was correct and you require no changes, you don’t need to do anything.
If you require changes, blank Consent Forms are in the office, or email Pamela Smith the following details (only the top 3 fields are necessary, the rest are voluntary):
Student Name:
Email Address Parent/Caregiver 1:
Mobile Phone Parent/Caregiver 1:
Street Address Parent/Caregiver 1:

Pizza Potluck meets STEM Fun!!!!

An Ode to Tech
June 20 is Pizza Potluck at Howard.
If you don’t come, you’re a coward.
‘Cuz the STEM team will be there,
Blowing stuff in the air.
Join us there to be fully empowered.
Hey Howard community – we know you’re probably already coming to the Pizza Potluck on June 20 from 6 to 8 pm. But in case you need another reason to come out, the STEM team will be there for one last Hurrah. Set your alarm for 6:45 pm for a demonstration on the field.
Be there or be squared.
