SoFun is a committee of parent volunteers at Humbercrest whose purpose is to present fun social events and to raise funds for materials and programs that directly benefit all students.
Thanks to the incredible support of the Humbercrest community last year our SoFun fundraising events, including Pizza Days, the QSP Magazine Campaign, Dance-a-thon and Family Bingo Night we raised $31,000 for the school. This money is greatly appreciated. In past years, SoFun funds were used to purchase Smartboards, musical instruments, data projectors, a sound system for the gym, a tent for sporting events, as well as arts and anti-bullying presentations. Each classroom also receives a portion of the funds for non-consumable items such as reading materials, games, audio-visual equipment, etc.
All students (JK to 8) are encouraged to participate in school-wide events like Pizza Days, Spell-a-thon and Family Bingo Night. New parents to Humbercrest often ask how they can help or feel more connected to the school. SoFun can only be successful with help from parent volunteers. We need your time and talents to provide both the social and fundraising events at Humbercrest. In fact, we have a long-standing tradition at Humbercrest that involves the Grade 7 parents. It is the special responsibility of Grade 7 parents to host the Grade 8 Graduation celebration each year.

Currently, we are seeking a co-chair for Grade 8 Graduation. It is tradition at Humbercrest that the Grade 7 parents plan the Grade 8 graduation so that the parents of the graduates can enjoy the evening. If you are a Grade 7 parent and can help with planning the event, please email email@example.com Thank you.
