Our Monday Pizza and Friday Popcorn fundraisers are back!

THE ORDER SYSTEM FOR PIZZA AND POPCORN IS READY TO GO FOR THIS SCHOOL YEAR

Thank you for considering to participate in this fundraiser that the parent council does to support the many activities that Parent Council provides for all children at Pleasant Park School.

YOU CAN ORDER PIZZA OR POPCORN ONLINE AT: https://pleasantpark.hotlunches.net/admin/?action=login-form

WEEKLY Pizza MONDAY!

Pizza is ordered per term and you can order for 13 weeks starting Monday Sept 23rd to Monday Dec 16th for Pizza Pizza pizza to be delivered to your student’s class room during 2nd nutritional break at 1:15pm.

We offer slices of either cheese or pepperoni and cheese at a cost of $2.50/slice.

We also are offering on a trial basis the ability to order a small gluten-free or dairy-free whole pizza. This pizza will come in the box to your student so that they can take any leftovers home. We are only offering these options as a whole pizza to avoid any contamination issues.

For your student to receive pizza on Monday Sept 23rd, your order and payment have to be in by Sunday September 22nd at noon.

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.

When there is a holiday or snow day on a Monday we will do “Pizza Tuesdays.  No refunds or replacement lunches will be given for missed days due to sickness or vacations.

BIWEEKLY Popcorn FRIDAY!

We also are offering popcorn every other week on Friday for $2/bag. Our first popcorn day will be Friday Sept 27th.

You do not have to order for the term and can order for each Friday up to the day 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 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 to snow day, sickness, vacation, etc.

Welcome back!

Our first meeting is September 25th at 6:45pm in the Library. We hope to see you then!

On behalf of Parent Council, Welcome! Hopefully the first 2 weeks of school have gone smoothly for your families. We want to remind everyone to be safe when walking, biking or driving to school. Please be aware of students crossing side streets and in the parking lot.

Simply being a parent or guardian of a child at Pleasant Park means you are already part of Parent Council. Congratulations!  You can choose to get involved a little or a lot, but either way, we hope you will come out and be part of the conversation.

Parent Council meetings run once a month. We keep things friendly, focused and fun. Attending the meetings is a great way to meet parents, school staff and hear of all the exciting things going on in the school. We have conference calling set up at each meeting for parents if you are unable to attend in person.

At our first meeting on September 25, we will hold elections for any contested and unfilled positions on Parent Council. You can find the self-nomination form here, and use this form to nominate somebody else. Please submit them to Principal Thibeault before September 23.

Roles on the Executive include: Chair/Co-Chairs, Treasurer, Secretary.  Their roles can be found here. Find out more about Parent Council on the Pleasant Park Parent Council website. Parent Council also has a very active private Facebook page. Please consider joining to keep up to date on the latest news and events.

Pizza, popcorn and alternative lunches are run by Parent Council and are one of our biggest fundraisers. The bulk of our efforts focus on fundraising and organizing events that enrich the school experience and school community, such as our Book sale, year end BBQ, Movie Nights, Math/Science nights and special speakers. We also contribute to school and classroom needs that cannot be budgeted by the school such as robotics supplies for the Robotics club, the school Play, Kindergarten special events, French and English reading books, sports equipment, field trip bussing and much more. If you have any questions at all, please send a quick note or drop into a meeting.

We hope to see you September 25!

We need volunteers to make our year-end BBQ a success!

Are you planning on joining us for the year-end BBQ on June 14? It’s less than two weeks away!

It’s a wonderful event to bring our community together and celebrate another successful year. But it takes a small army of volunteers to make it happen.

Can you spare even half an hour of your time? Are you a grill master? Want to help take tickets, hand out food and drinks, or even bake a cake for the cake auction?

The BBQ runs from 4-7 and we’ll need help with set up and clean up as well.

Please follow this link and see the spots we have available:
