Terry Fox Run

terryfoxrun2017 (1)

Our annual Terry Fox Run was held on Thursday, September 28th. A big thank you to Ms. Kayra for organizing this year. As well, a thank you to all of the volunteers who came out to support the run. We had a wonderful turnout. Thank you also to all of the families who generously donated to the Terry Fox Foundation. Together we raised $1004.95 to help support cancer research. This far exceeded previous year’s donations. What a fantastic success!

Ms. Lindsay Thompson, Vice-Principal

Hot Lunch ordering online is open

Hello Parents!

Our ordering system is GREEN, so instead of filling out a paper order form, parents will place their hot lunch orders online using MunchaLunch.com!

New this year, the Hot Lunch program will be twice a week, every Tuesday and Thursday.  In addition, we will be trying out the Hot Lunch program as a small fundraiser.   The money will be used to pay for running the hot lunch program and towards school needs.  October will be our trial run with the new program, so we would appreciate parent’s feedback at the next PAC meeting on October 10th.

*You can securely pay for your orders by credit card

NO cash or cheques accepted

Our local vendors include; Ragazzi Pizza, Dream Sushi, Curry Express & BitterSweet Kitchen


HOW TO REGISTER:

Click on the Munch a Lunch link: https://munchalunch.com/schools/McBrideAnnex/ then follow the instructions on how to register as a user.

Online ordering is now OPEN and will CLOSE Friday, October 6th at 9PM.  


NO LATE ORDERS ACCEPTED 

Immediate payment is required in order for the order to process with MunchaLunch.

We encourage parents to send water and fruits/vegetables for a complete healthier meal.

Please note if your child is ill or away on a hot lunch day, you are welcome to come and pick up their lunch but we cannot keep the food for them for the next day.

In addition, we will be looking for volunteers to help run the hot lunch program.  Please keep your eyes open for the volunteer list that will be sent out later this week, via Google Docs.


Please note:
In the rare case that a parent has children in two schools using this system, they can email below to get their account adjusted.
If you have children in two different schools, 
Email support@munchalunch.com with your 2 school names.

Thank you, McBride Annex PAC
