ASK THE NURSE – Take the opportunity to ask the Public Health Nurse whatever you want. Fill out this anonymous form as soon as possible and we’ll pass your questions to her prior to the meeting so she can address them during the zoom meeting.
SCHOOL STATEMENT OF NEEDS (SSON) is the form completed by the school council/parent representative of every school each fall (but we haven’t done one in ages!). It outlines the parent/community priorities for the school that the superintendent will use to identify a principal if one needs to be appointed. If you’d like to learn more, read the Guidelines or a Sample. PLEASE Fill out this anonymous questionnaire by November 22nd to help us assess and communicate the priorities specific to our school community.

Funds raised pay for holiday hampers and subsidize school events for Howard families in need. Funds also go to support Health & Wellness programs, field trips, Equity Programs, tech upgrades, graduation yearbooks, student-led initiatives and hopefully in person events like Carnaval D’Hiver, a musical and graduation event.
The auction was put together by a small team of volunteers. The items have all been donated by generous local businesses and individuals.
Today we are launching the biggest fundraiser of the school year: an Online Auction. A small team of volunteers have spent the last month securing exciting items and experiences for the auction. No matter where you are in the world, you can bid on these items and ALL proceeds go to the school.
Daily Draws Place a bid today and be entered into a draw for a daily prize! Place a bid tomorrow to be entered into tomorrow’s draw… and we’ll do this everyday until Saturday at 9pm when the bidding closes. So, bid now and bid often!

Funds raised for the school go to support Health & Wellness programs, field trips, Equity Programs, tech upgrades, graduation yearbooks, student-led initiatives and hopefully in person events like Carnaval D’Hiver, a musical and graduation event. Funds raised also pay for holiday hampers and subsidize school events for Howard families in need. Normally, Howard hosts a Fall Fete and Spring Social. These and other fundraising initiatives usually raise about $50,000 for the school. With COVID restrictions in place, we haven’t been able to host these events and are now in desperate need of funds.
Thank you for taking action and supporting the kids of Howard in any way you can.
