Join Your Child for Lunch & Hot Lunch Program Begins

We’ve got a family lunch day, a welcome assembly, and the Terry Fox Run/Walk next week. Read on to find out more!

JOIN YOUR CHILD FOR LUNCH DAY  - SEPTEMBER 21

Come on in through the front doors between 12 noon and 12:20 PM on September 21 and make your way to your child’s classroom to join us for lunch! 

  • If it’s sunny and warm, please enjoy a picnic outdoors with your child from 12:22 - 12:52 PM
  • If it’s cold and rainy, please plan to join your child or one of your children in the classroom for lunch. We will arrange to have a chair ready for you. 
    • Please note that we do not have enough space nor chairs to accommodate siblings in classrooms. But don’t worry, we have two more family lunch days this year!
  • Would you like a hot dog, too? This is our first Hot Dog Lunch day, so please visit the hot lunch website on Parent Portal for ordering and payment information. A hallal meat option is available. Orders due by 9 AM Tuesday.

Please visit this link to let us know you’re joining your child/ren for lunch on September 21 .  

At the 1 PM assembly, we are raising the Treaty 6 and Metis flags. Let us know if you can stay for our first school wide assembly. 

 

THE HOT LUNCH PROGRAM BEGINS 

Hot Dog days this month are September 21 and 28, followed by each Wednesday during the month of October. 

Visit the hot lunch website on Parent Portal  to find out about October’s Friday Hot Lunch menus, dates, and ordering information.  We have so many great restaurants to choose from and support this year!  

October Hot Lunch dates are Oct 14 and Oct 21 and the order form will be up on Parent Portal next week. More information will be coming home with your child soon.

Volunteers are needed to keep the hot lunch program running at our school. Please call the school office at 780-632-3113 if you can help us one or two days a month to prepare hot dogs and/or deliver hot lunches to classes.
