September 7, 2022

Welcome to our first week of school!

It is my pleasure to introduce and welcome Ms. Jody Mountain (Div. 2, Grade 3/4 teacher) and Ms. Jamie Catton (school counsellor) to the Howay community.

Today, students in Grade 1-5 moved into their new classrooms! Students will be coming home excited to share with you their teachers name and where their classroom is located. Please take note of teacher name, division and entrance/exits as tomorrow your child will start their day in those classrooms.
