There is a tradition at Howard where the School Council allocates funds to be given to Howard families in need at this time of year. The Council purchases gift cards that families can use to purchase groceries, clothes, or gifts for their kids. These gift cards are very discreetly distributed by the Howard Principal to the families that need it most.
This process is so discreet that you probably didn’t know it happens every year!
If you would like to donate specifically to the Holiday Hamper initiative, please use School Cash Online and use the notes field to indicate your wishes.
This past Tuesday the Howard Public School Council hosted the monthly meeting and this year’s annual budget discussion. Watch a recording of the meeting if you missed it.
“Wow, what a month it has been” has become an understatement. We hope that you, your family and neighbours are getting through as best as possible. With that in mind, this month’s newsletter offers some tips and suggestions.
