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:

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.
