Thank you, thank you to all of the parents who attended the first PAC meeting of the year! It was so amazing to see so many new faces in the room. We hope to see you all again on October 9th!
Coming up this week:
The Welcome Back Social is a week away and it is time to order your grub! We will be serving a couple of kinds of Rocky Mountain pizza, including a gluten-free option. There will also be a complimentary delicious treat for the students. In order to ensure we have enough pizza for all, we ask that you order enough slices for your family on our hot lunch website at munchalunch.com under the tab Order Lunch. Ordering will close on at 7am on Wednesday, September 19th. We will be handing our pizza from 5:30pm-7pm at the party. We look forward to seeing you all there and sharing a pie with you!
Direct Appeal: Please contribute to the Trafalgar Elementary-Go Beyond campaign running until October 5th! While any amount is appreciated, a donation of $125 per family will help us reach our goal. All of these funds go toward programming, classroom resources, workshops, technology, Arts and more! Please note: the online donation system will be closed while Noon Hour program registration occurs this week. It will reopen on September 21st. You still have a couple of hours tonight! You can always submit your form and cheque in the slot outside the office. If you did not receive a form or need a new one, please visit our website at http://trafalgarpac.ca and click on the Direct Appeal link at the top of the page.
Noon Hour Program Registration
Registration opens on September 17 at 7:00 am and closes on September 20 at 7:00pm.
NEW THIS YEAR: Registration will use the same new Munchalunch ordering system as the hot lunch program. The programs typically sell out in very quickly so you need to set up your account before registration opens on Monday September 17 at 7:00 am. Please click on the “Hot Lunch” button on the Trafalgar PAC website (http://trafalgarpac.ca) or go to Munchalunch.com/schools/trafalgar and set up your account. Click the “Register Here” button and the system will guide you through to add your children to your account. You will not be able to register for programs until Monday morning at 7:00 am. You can log on to your Munchalunch account and you will find the Noon Hour Program registration under the Fundraising Open! tab.
Wednesday, September 19th:
Hot Lunch Ordering opens. Please follow the same instructions for Noon Hour programs above to order hot lunch. Use the tab Order Lunch! First hot lunch dates are October 3rd and 5th.
