Lunch Programs

schoollunchThe fundraising lunch program is underway (which consists of orders from DQ, BP, Subway, Taco Time, & Edo) – if you have placed an order, you should be receiving an email at the beginning of each week outlining the details (unless you have opted out of receiving an email).

For the month of October fundraising lunches are being served on Monday and Thursday – please be sure to send lunches for your children on the other days.

The Hot Lunch Program will begin in November and depending on which class your child(ren) is/are in, hot lunches are prepared by volunteers in the school and served to students on either Tuesday & Thursday or Wednesday & Friday.  From November to April while the Hot Lunch program is operating the fundraising lunch program will revert back to just being offered on Monday.

If you have any questions please refer to the “Lunch Programs” tab on the blog menu bar or contact either Jennifer at 780-9663-1316 or Gerri-lou at 780-266-0899. Thank you.
