Battery, Pen, and Marker Recycling

Recycle your markers and pens! Batteries, too!

From now until the last week of school, the Humewood community can bring in PENS, MARKERS and BATTERIES for recycling! Gather up all the dried-out markers, scratchy pens, and dead batteries lying around your houses and classrooms, and deposit them in the marked boxes in the front lobby of the school for recycling.

Please keep batteries separate from pens and markers – there will be a separate battery box. Let’s take another step toward making Humewood an even greener school and community!

Recycling of these items will be available from May 22 to June 22, 2018

Take advantage of this initiative and clear out your drawers and cupboards!

2018 Humewood School Family Fall Fair

Humewood School Family Fall Fair will be held on Saturday September 22nd, 2018

The Humewood School Family Fall Fair is a fantastic community event that promises great fun for the whole family and is the biggest contributor to the fundraising dollars used each year to support our children’s classrooms for many things such as:  teacher supplies, field trips, arts enrichment, science enrichment, technology upgrades, musical instruments for our new school band, and much more.

How can you help? 

Individuals, families, and businesses are invited to sponsor an event at the Fair.  Circuit bikes, bake table, book nook, face painting, bouncy castles, and carnival games are just a few of the events in need of sponsors. General donations of funds, event tickets, or gift certificates are also welcome.

To become a sponsor or to make a donation please contact:

Cheryl Batty: cheryl.batty@utoronto.ca.

Or volunteer your time:  organizers, basketball players/coaches, carnival game coordinators, bakers, salad makers, entertainers, photographers, and more are needed to help make this day a success. 

To volunteer contact:

Carly Labell: carlylabell@yahoo.ca

Join in the fun and make a difference!

Safe Drop-Off and Pick-Up Task Force

Safe drop off. Safe pick up. Peace of mind.

No one wants to see a single child, or parent or guardian, get hurt.

VOLUNTEER TO BE PART OF THE SAFE DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP TASK FORCE – VOLUNTEER TO BE PART OF THE SOLUTION.

Many parents, as well as school staff, have expressed concern about the safety of Humewood kids during drop-off and pick-up times.

The intersections of Valewood and Humewood on the East side of the school; Valewood and Cherrywood on the West side of the school; and Maplewood and Humewood to the South of the school have been singled out as being often congested, hard to navigate, and difficult for kids to cross safely.

Possible safety improvement measures are being discussed with the police and the city. In the meantime, we can do something about this, and soon.

Please seriously consider joining a group that is forming to keep the streets around the school safe by acting as drop-off and pick-up volunteers.

You will have a say in how this issue is handled, and what the role of the parent volunteers will be.

Availability during drop-off times (8:15-9:00 a.m.) and/or pick-up times (3:00-3:30) at least once a week will be necessary.

Please email your interest in participating in this important initiative to humewoodschoolcouncil@gmail.com.

No previous experience as a crossing guard necessary!

2018 Humewood Fall Fair

Hello Friends,

It’s that time of year when we look to planning Humewood School’s biggest fundraising event! Humewood has a unique event that has traditionally occurred only 3 weeks into the school year. This year the event is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, September 22. With this early event we need to start the planning process now so that there’s time to get everything in place by the end of June. Then when September rolls around we are set to go!

We are looking for help with particular roles outlined in the link below but if you have new and exciting ideas, please come and share them with the team!

Let us know if you’re interested by filling out this form: https://goo.gl/forms/iKtApxEcbUWPYq182

Sincerely,
The Fall Fair Committee
