Thank You & Please Keep Voting!

Thanks to students, staff, family members, former parents, former students & Rotary friends for all of your support voting through the Adopt a School link posted to this page! There are 6 days left, please keep voting and /or donating! We are a small school and we need your help. Indigo advises that a person can only use one email address to vote, anyone voting multiple times with multiple email addresses will have their extra votes disqualified. If you are donating 12.00 for a book & plan to donate more than one book please make your book donations on different days, donations count as 10 votes per donation, i.e. if you donate one book you get ten votes, if you donate 2 books at the same time that’s still just ten votes. This clarification was just recently shared with us.

School Lunch Program

Welcome to the 2014- 2015 school year. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the School lunch Program!

We are happy to let parents and teachers know that registration for the 2014-2015 School Lunch Program is now available on our website. Please visit [ http://www.schoollunch.ca ] to register as early as possible. Paper registration will also be sent home today (September 3rd).

The School Lunch Association requires parents to register their children, each school year, in order to participate in the program.

The first lunch service will be October 1, 2014 and menus will be available on September 10th , both online and in paper form.

In order to ensure we continue to serve hot, nutritious meals to the children partaking in our program the price of a School Lunch Meal is now $3.50. We are proud to say this is our first new price in over 12 years!

The School Lunch is proud to operate a non-stigmatizing program that provides hot, nutritious lunches to primary and elementary school children, regardless of their families ability to pay.

If you have any questions please contact me anytime,

Thanks for your help and continued cooperation,
