The Northlea Home and School Association would like to welcome all Northlea families back to our monthly Pizza Lunch Program. Pizza lunch is a school fundraiser and one that is lots of fun!! The program is fully managed by parent volunteers. All profits from pizza lunch go to Northlea’s Home and School Association.

Pizza Lunch Program

Pizza lunch will be held on the last Thursday of the month starting in October (or adjusted for breaks, holiday’s or other school events). All grades will enjoy eating with their classmates in the gym at 11:35am.
Please refer to the order form or website for the scheduled pizza lunch dates. Our first Pizza Lunch will be on Thursday, October 24th.

Pricing and choices

Students will have the option to choose either cheese or pepperoni – not both.
It is the same price for cheese or pepperoni. A healthy veggie or fruit and a treat will be offered. Families cannot choose which dates to participate. The package prices includes pizza lunch for the year.

Eco-Friendly

In an effort to be eco-friendly we ask that each child bring their own plate and water bottle to the pizza lunch. The lunch room baskets will be used to ensure that all bottles and plates are returned to each student (please label items).

Payment

We will collect pizza lunch forms over the next couple of weeks. Sign up for pizza lunch is online at: https://www.northleaschool.ca/pizza-lunch-signup-form . Please ensure that sign up is completed by EOD Friday October 11, 2019.

Sign-up Pizza Lunch Online Now

Hard copies of the order forms are available to download Pizza lunch form. Copies are also kept in the office if required.

As in prior years, we are offering an instalment plan. This can only be done via cheque. Please send in two cheques with your form – one dated for October and one for February. The amounts will be the total for the year equally divided.

If finances present a barrier to involvement, please speak with either Ms. Sandler, Mr. Sanders, or Ms. Berger. The discussion will be held in confidence.

The Honour System

Please keep a record of your order. We rely on an ‘honour” system to distribute the correct
number of slices to each child. We find that may kids forget how many slices they have
ordered. We kindly ask you to remind them of their order. Have your order handy or make a note of it in your child’s agenda, so you can refer to it throughout the year. We will send
reminders of the pizza lunch dates via the weekly email. We would also appreciate if parents could have a talk with kids about respectful use of the space and food as we have had some incidences of food being thrown at each other and on floor and wastage.

KIDS helping KIDS

To promote “kids helping kids” we welcome student volunteers from Grade 6, 7 and 8. Information as to how the volunteer process will work will be communicated the week of October 7th.

We make every effort to ensure that all students who sign up have an opportunity to volunteer at least once during the school year.

Please Note:

We are unable to accommodate:
– Individual lunch make ups
– Refunds
