We are only accepting orders in advance this year since we do not want to waste food and to reduce the line up for food. You can order online at our website, or if you can not order online visit the office of the school anytime during school hours to get a paper form to fill in and make a payment at the main office (through either exact cash, or cheque made out to Pleasant Park School Council). Food orders are available up to midnight on Thursday June 16th and there are no refunds, including if the weather necessitates the use of our rain date on Friday June 24th.

TO MAKE THIS A SUCCESS WE NEED VOLUNTEERS AND A FEW ITEMS TO BORROW (sign here here: https://signup.com/go/BUOxGeu : If you can offer 30min-1hr of your time on the day of the event, we could really use help to make this event happen. There is a job for everyone and it is fairly easy work with lots of rewards given by smiling kids. High school students who are also looking to get credit for volunteer hours, just bring your form to be signed to the event. If you have a larger cooler with wheels to store drinks or a portable outdoor tent that you are willing to lend us for the event, please sign up and we will be in touch.
WHO IS COVERING THE COSTS OF THE EVENT? When ordering online for food there is the option to add a donation of $5 per family to help cover the costs of the event (performers, rental of games etc). School council has a very tight budget since all our pizza/popcorn sales went to the outdoor classroom fundraising account, so if you do not order food, but wish to donate please use this website.
STUDENTS CAN NOT STAY AT SCHOOL IN ORDER TO ATTEND THE EVENT: There will be a regular dismissal on the day of the event and aside from students attending Aladin, all students will need to leave the school in order for the volunteers to set up the event for a 4pm start.
We have not been able to host our annual year-end celebration for 2 years and are delighted that we can come together outside following Ottawa Public Health and OCDBD guidelines.Any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the main office to leave a message for a parent volunteer to call you back.
