Thank you to all of the parents who attended our PTA meeting on Wednesday!  If you were unable to make it this time and are interested in seeing the meeting agenda, there is a copy in the PTA box in the office, and Mrs. Lazar has also posted a copy on her blog.

On September 27, the Dearborn PTA Council will be hosting the annual Smoke On the Grill Family Picnic.  This event will be held at Ford Field Park under the large pavillion.  Adult tickets are $30, child tickets are $10.  Entertainment will be provided by the Henry Ford College Big Band.

If you are interested in purchasing tickets, you can contact one of our PTA board members or inquire in the office.  Proceeds from the picnic will benefit the Dearborn PTA Council and the Dearborn Goodfellows.

Thank you for your support!

Third & Fourth Grade Parent Volunteers Needed!

Posted on

Dear Third & Fourth Grade Parents,

It has been a tradition here at Howard that the 4th grade classes provide desserts and help with set-up/take-down for the 5th grade promotion, which happens this Thursday morning.  We are still in need of volunteers and donations.  3rd grade parents, if you are able to assist it will be helpful to make next year’s process much smoother.

We are asking that you donate one dozen cookies, brownies, muffins, ice or bottled water.  Volunteers are needed to set up the tent and tables as soon as the first bell rings on Thursday morning, as well as to help with serving and cleaning up.

If you are willing to help it would be greatly appreciated.  Please contact Carmen at 313-350-2747.
