School Lunch Program Update – How it Works

Registration for the School Lunch Program is now open on the School Lunch Association website at www.schoollunch.ca . Parents must register their children before they are able to participate in the lunch program. Parents have to register each year for the program.

The first meal service will be September 28th with the menu orders taking place from Sept 12th – Sept 15th.  We do not have enough envelopes and menus to send home for each child. If you have registered on line and intend to order lunches on line each month, please let us know. We encourage all parents to order online when possible.

Best Wishes from Mrs. Skinner

As the new school year approaches I’d like to take this opportunity to extend my best wishes to the students and to the school community for a successful 2016-2017 school year. As the last school year drew to an end I made the decision to retire from my position as Principal of Bishop Abraham. I have spent 38 years in education in Newfoundland, the last 23 years at Bishop Abraham. As changes are coming to the school system I felt it was time for change for me. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at this school and want to thank  the school community for the support you have extended to the school and to the staff over the years. I am looking forward to seeing the students after school opens as I return from time to time to volunteer.
