Missing Gift

Posted on

Unfortunately a gift intended for Ms. Heidi Martin seems to have been taken during the 1st/3rd grade picnic today.  The gift card and necklace were removed from the gift bag, which was found discarded in the trash along with an open card.

If anyone knows what may have happened or the necklace and gift card is found, please return to Ms. Heidi Martin or contact Sam Salame at 313-587-5650 immediately. Thank you!

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.

PTA Bake Sale / Lost & Found

The PTA will be having a bake/snack sale Thursday after school outside the main doors.  Everything is $1.  Please have exact change.  Any donations would be greatly appreciated and should be sent to the office Thursday morning.

If your child has misplaced a personal belonging throughout this school year, these are the final days to retrieve them from the Lost & Found tables.  We have two tables in the main hallway with lost coats, scarves, bags, etc.  Any items remaining on the tables will be donated.
