Annual Howard Giving Tree

If you’ve visited the school in the last couple days, you may have noticed that our Giving Tree is set up in the hallway.  Each year, Howard students and teachers collect warm hats, gloves/mittens and socks to donate to those in need in our community.  Donations will be collected and placed on and around the tree.  If you would like to donate, please send new winter items:  hats, gloves/mittens, and socks.  Thank you for your generosity!

Thank you!

Dear Howard Learning Community,

Thank you for the amazing level of participation in our efforts to donate to families in need this Holiday Season.  As you know, we partnered with Yogurtopia to collect food items for Gleaners Food Bank. We also partnered with Project Dignity by taking collections of clothing and other essentials for families in need.  Your generosity during this collection period has been extraordinary, and reflects very highly on our entire community.  By taking part in this process, we are teaching a very valuable lesson to our students about taking care of those who are less fortunate.  This reminds us all to be thankful during the holiday season. We are blessed to have such a wonderful community!

Thank you to everyone who participated or helped in any way!

Congratulations to Mrs. Turk’s class for winning the Yogurtopia challenge to donate the most food items! The students all received a $5.00 gift certificate from Yogurtopia!

Dear Howard Learning Community,

We are working with Yogurtopia and Gleaners  to collect non-perishable food items for families in need during the Holiday Season.  Students will bring the items to class starting this Monday to be tallied by the teacher, and then placed in the boxes in our hallway provided by Gleaners Food Bank . The class that collects the most items will receive a $5.00 gift card for each student and a visit from Miley the friendly Yogurtopia mascot!
