Please check out our September issue of Mustangs News!
There will be a start up/info meeting on September 16 at 11 a.m. in the kitchen. We are also in need of volunteers for the hot lunch program. If you are able to help out in ANY way, please contact Gerri-lou Stockall at 780-266-0899 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to all of our Hot Lunch Volunteers for another GREAT year!
The Hot Lunch program (usually served Tuesday to Friday), for the 2014-2015 school year finished at the end of April but the Fundraising Lunch program continues until mid-June on Mondays and Thursdays.
So . . . . if your child usually gets hot lunch on Tuesday and Thursday or Wednesday and Friday, this will NOT be the case in May & June, please remember to send a lunch for your child. If you are not sure whether or not you ordered for that day, be sure to check the link on the “Lunch Programs” tab to see what days Fundraising Lunches will be served during the months of May and June.
Beginning in the fall 2015, the Hot Lunch program will be online with the Fundraising Lunch program.

As most of you know, and hopefully your children have enjoyed, our Hot Lunch program runs from November to the end of April each year and we offer a hot and healthy lunch to the students four days a week. We hand make and cook everything on site and include a fruit, vegetable, and either a real fruit juice box or milk with each meal for an incredibly low price of $3.50 and a variety of soups for $1.00. The reason we can keep the price so low is because of our amazing volunteer pool.
We are always looking for new volunteers to join our program, your commitment can be as small or large as your schedule can handle. There are many different positions in the Hot Lunch program like cooking, money count, data entry, shopping, and menu planning. We cook Tuesday through Friday generally from 9:00-1:00. You don’t need to be a fancy cook or commit to coming each week. All menu items, recipes, and preparation details are provided. If you are only able to help one day a month, every other week, or each week, we can schedule you into a group with a team leader on the day of your choosing. We understand that being a parent it can be sometimes hard to add more to your plate with volunteering; but here are some of the benefits of volunteering with the Hot Lunch program. On your cooking day you will enjoy a free lunch, as a thank you for your help we also provide lunch vouchers that can be used for free lunches for your child(ren), at the end of the year we take you for a wind up luncheon, and also at the end of the school year we are invited to the volunteer tea put on by the students and staff. While you spend your time in the school you get to know the teachers, office staff, other parents, and not to mention being able to see your children in their own environment.
We will be hosting an information meeting about Hot Lunch for new volunteers (date to be announced). If you are interested in receiving more information about volunteering next year please give us a call or send an email. (Gerri-Lou 780-266-0899 or email@example.com). Thanks in advance for checking out our program.
