End of Year Pleasant Park Clothing and Yearbook Sales

Order by Sunday, May 29

School Council and the staff at Pleasant Park have organized end of year clothing and yearbook sales.  

The 2021/2022 yearbook includes a page of names and photos per homeroom class as well as several “around the school” pages highlighting photos submitted by staff and students. A cover contest was run at the school to determine the student-created front and back cover for the yearbook and we are excited for everyone to see how it turned out!

See the flyer that shows the Pleasant Park clothing items that are available to purchase with size charts provided.  Notice that there are both youth and adult sizes (mainly for staff and some of our older students), as well as options in cotton (like last year) or polyester (dryfit, new this year).  We also have available for the first-time, baseball hats – just in time for summer!

The cost of the clothing and yearbook is what we are paying for the item, so there is no fundraising associated with these sales for the school or school council.  

In previous years, we have had generous families offer to purchase clothing items or yearbooks for donation to the school.  If there are families that wish to donate items, for the yearbook there is an item called yearbook for donation that you can order, and for the clothing you can add any items for donations to your order online.   Any donated items are provided to students at Pleasant Park through the staff.  

To order go online to pleasant park school hot lunch site: https://pleasantpark.hotlunches.net/ where many of you already have an account setup from buying pizza or popcorn.  

  1. If you do not have an account, click on  “Click here to register” that is underneath the login space, since everyone must create an account. 
  2. Then click on “Profile” to “Add Students” (if you have not already listed your students)
  3. Then go under “Orders” on top black bar, or “Manage Orders” button at the bottom and click on “Order” in Pleasant Park Clothing Order and/or Yearbook 2022 box.
  4. You can pay visa or PayPal through use of the link “Pay now thru PayPal”.  Note there is no requirement to go sign up for PayPal account, nor agree to receive their marketing to be able to purchase.  If you require payment using cheque (payable to Pleasant Park School Council) or cash, then email pleasantparkcouncil@gmail.com to organize payment.  

The clothing and yearbooks will arrive approximately the last 2 weeks of school and there will be an email sent with information about the location for pickup once the order has arrived.  Please note that the clothing supplier has let us know that there are a few items that may be on backorder due to supply chain issues, so like last year we may have an additional pickup time in the summer months if required. 

If you cannot order online or have any issues with ordering online or payment prior to the deadline, please email pleasantparkcouncil@gmail.com (preferred method) or call the school and leave a message for School Council and a parent volunteer will call you back.

Monday Pizza and Friday Popcorn return to Pleasant Park School!

YOU CAN ORDER PIZZA OR POPCORN ONLINE AT:
https://pleasantpark.hotlunches.net
 
This is a fundraising event being organized by school council to help us buy an outdoor classroom for Pleasant Park School and our community.

WEEKLY PIZZA MONDAY

We are ordering from Pizza Pizza through its school program that will allow it to be delivered to the school in an individually packaged slice for each student to enhance safety.  
 
Options include

  • large slice of cheese pizza: $3.50
  • large slice of pepperoni pizza: $3.50
  • Gluten-free cheese pizza (small individual 10″ pizza): $12
  • Dairy-free (vegan) cheese pizza (small individual 10″ pizza): $10

The first pizza order will arrive next Monday April 11th and the last delivery will be on Monday June 27th (total 12 weeks). For pizza, you need to order the same type of pizza for each week and order for the 12-week period. ($42.00 total for once slice of pizza each week.) 

Deadline to order pizza is this Friday April 8th before midnight to receive pizza for your student on next Monday April 11th.  

There are two Mondays that are a holiday, so we will have pizza Tuesdays instead on April 19th and May 24th.  

Students cannot bring money into school to buy pizza since we have no ability to make change, we want to ensure that they have parental permission to buy pizza, and we have to preorder the pizza.
If you can only pay via cash and/or cannot use the website to order, please come to the main office to get a paper order form that you can complete and leave at the main office of the school with your cash order.  

No refunds or replacement lunches will be given for missed days due to sickness or vacations.

WEEKLY Popcorn FRIDAY

We also are offering popcorn every week on Friday for $2.50 per bag. Our first popcorn day will be Friday April 8th.

You do not have to order for the term. You can order for each Friday up to Wednesday midnight before Popcorn day.

Popcorn is popped locally by Papa Jacks just a couple kilometers from our school. Flavours are listed on the online form.

Student can bring in $2.50 on Popcorn Day to buy at the school instead of ordering online. However cash sales on popcorn Friday are limited to what is left over, so we strongly encourage you to pre-order to reduce the amount of disappointed little faces.

If there is a holiday or PD day, we will do Popcorn Thursday as listed online.
Popcorn will be left in the classroom for any student who are away and missed Popcorn Friday due health, vacation, etc.

PAYMENT ONLINE THROUGH WEBSITE

All our payments are done securely through PayPal with no fee to you.

PayPal allows you to pay with your credit card or from your PayPal account.

We use this site to save paper, save your time, and allow us to easily track our fundraising that is supporting Pleasant Park School!

If you have any questions, or issues with your order, please email pleasantparkcouncil@gmail.com.

Help build our Outdoor Classroom at PPPS !

3, 2, 1 – launch! Fundraising is underway to add a full outdoor classroom to the school grounds.

Starting in 2020, your School Council worked hard to enhance outdoor education opportunities for our students and staff to help weather the pandemic. Phase I saw the purchase and installation of 6 wooden picnic tables to promote outdoor learning in the school yard. Phase II saw the installation of a human sundial in the kindergarten yard. Now we’re going BIG, with the start of fundraising for a full outdoor classroom to seat 30 students.

This is a large project, expected to cost between $50,000-60,000 and requiring tapping into our large school and neighbourhood community through donations and grants.

What can you do? Together – Let’s Enhance the Park!

  1. Kick off your support with a donation below
  2. Share this page with neighbours and businesses
  3. Join our committee by emailing pleasantparkcouncil@gmail.com

Thank You for Supporting PPPS Through Fresh from the Farm!

Hi Pleasant Park community,

Fresh from the Farm orders are now closed. Parent Council is projected to have raised approximately $900 to support the school. In addition, we have received orders for over 65 bundles of vegetables and apples to be donated to the food bank to support families in our community. We apologize for the technical issues we experienced and are thrilled by the support of the Pleasant Park Community. 

For those who did purchase bundles for pick up, they will be delivered to the school sometime between November 8 and December 9th. As soon as a date is confirmed, we will communicate the pick up date and location.

Thank you for your participation in the Fresh from the Farm fundraiser!

Is there a cost to play?

There is NO cost to play. This is a fun event hosted by Parent and Student Council, so we can all get together, since we can’t meet in person.

Why are these all on Thursday night?

We are doing these events on Thursday night since Thursday is PLEASANT PARK PIZZA fundraising night. We thought some families might find this a good time to play a game and take pressure off of the family chef.

Every Thursday, school families and faculty receive a 10% discount on all regular-priced menu items, and Pizza Pizza donates an additional 10% of the value of your purchases to Pleasant Park School Council to support our students.

This offer is on all regular priced menu items (except chicken items).The menu is available here. To place an order, please call the Pizza Pizza catering hotline at 1-866-310-1111 on Thursdays between 4:00 PM and 8:00 PM, and quote “Pleasant Park Public School.”

Are there prizes?

Yes! Pizza Pizza has donated prizes for our BINGO NIGHTS to help support our outdoor initiative fundraising associated with our BINGO nights and is allowing anyone to order who is playing BINGO!

If you order a pizza from Pizza Pizza, all funds raised will go toward our project for outdoor initiatives. The money we raised this year was used to add a sundial and picnic tables outside. Hopefully, by September, they will be in place for students to use during school hours and to the community after school. The students will help us pick the next item to add depending on funds raised from these three nights.

If you wish to contribute to the outdoor initiative, but do not want to buy pizza, email pleasantparkcouncil@gmail.com. We are happy to help you out with any question you may have.
