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.

Buy a gift card, raise money for Pleasant Park

By now you should have found a package in your child’s backpack with details of our new fundraiser (links to the forms below if you need a new copy).

How does it work?

When you and your friends and family purchase gift cards through this program, a portion of the sale will come back to Pleasant Park Public School.

Simply look through the list and select gift cards you need for holiday gift-giving or stores you use regularly. Ask friends and family to let you know if they need gift cards and mark those down as well.

Once you have all your orders, collect the money (cash and cheque are accepted – but cheques are easiest to manage) and send in your order form and payment with your child by November 30. The gift cards will be sent home in your child’s backpack on December 14.

Why can’t I order online?

We know, it seems strange to do this the old-fashioned way with pen and paper and cash and cheques. However, if we used the online ordering system, we would get a smaller return from the purchases. As this is a fundraiser, we wanted to maximize the funds coming back to the school.

What if I don’t want my child to be responsible for the cash and the cards?

Order forms and payments can be dropped off to the office until November 30th. If you don’t want your child to carry the cards home at the end of the day, let us know and we will arrange a pick-up time on December 14.

Where will the money go?

As you are hopefully aware, the Pleasant Park Parent Council raises money throughout the year to fund a long list of things for the school. From buses for field trips to readers for classrooms, equipment for the gym, and special resources to enrich the school experience. Most recently a large portion of money raised went toward new furniture and equipment for the library.

For a detailed update on the Council’s finances, please join us at our next Parent Council meeting this Wednesday, November 21.
