Howard Staff Luncheon Success – Thank You

To all who gave food, their time and other donations to make the Howard Staff Luncheon a huge success, we would like to thank you.  Your generous donations were thoroughly enjoyed.

The staff had a wonderful time at the luncheon and were ever-appreciative.  Many of them thanked us multiple times, and asked us to pass on their appreciation to all of the Howard parents who made the luncheon possible.

You may pick up your dishes and serving utensils on the table in the first floor hallway.

Be Like Terry

April 12th marks the start of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope 37 years ago.  As part of the Canada 150 celebration, we are encouraging students on April 12th to visit our website to share a few words about what Terry means to them and be entered in a random draw to win one of 150 Terry Fox t-shirts. Students can click on “What Terry Means to Me” to enter (link will be live April 12).

Students may not have time during the school day so we encourage you to have them go online from home on April 12th.

We thank you for joining us in the fight against cancer and continuing Terry’s legacy for generations to come.
