MunchaLunch Closing June 10th! – Dealing with Balances and Credits

PAC will be closing MunchaLunch for ordering as of Monday June 10th!
 
What does this mean? There will be no ability to place any more orders for the remainder of the school year as of June 10th
 
Why is it being closed?? Our Lunch Chair needs time to go through and deal with the Balances and Credits on parents accounts before the end of June.
 
What if I OWE money? We will be emailing all parents who have a balance owing on their account the week of June 10th. 
We would appreciate if you could check your account prior to that day and either pay online or send in a cheque (remember to add your childs name and the Order # so we can find you!).
 
What if I have a CREDIT on my account?? We will be emailing you the week of the 10th as well. You will have 3 Options: 
1. Roll over the credit to next year
2. Donate the credit to PAC, or 
3. Have PAC write a cheque to you for the amount you have on credit (**Note: you will need to arrange to pick the cheque up from the school office. We will not mail cheques out).
Thank you
Jody

Message about book return / Info on Walk n Roll week…

Here is a message from Adrienne regarding library book return:

We’ve had a wonderful year and 38,434 books have been circulated!

Please note the following: All books are due June 3rd

Please return all library books before or on June 3rd for inventory. Please help get every book back into the Learning Commons by cleaning up your cubbies, lockers, and looking in the corners and cupboards in your learning community. Help out your classmates and teachers and work at a team to scavenge for books! Sometimes they end up in strange places – look under shelves and in nooks and crannies too. Sift through your classroom library – the books from the Library have a barcode on the front.  If you have taken books home have a look for any books you’ve forgotten to return.

Thanks for your help and support!

Adrienne

A Wonderful Spring Fair!

I wish to thank all of you who came and enjoyed Spring Fair yesterday. We were so lucky to have amazing weather!
My biggest and heartfelt thanks to all the amazing parents who volunteered throughout the Fair. Not only did you come help but we also had amazing volunteers from Grade 6, 8 and even some NRP graduates now in Grade 9!
I think the biggest thank you however needs to go to the Spring Fair Committee: Arthur Louie, Jennifer Figarski, Sharon Yu, Kelli Kadokawa, Henry Mao, Fei Liu, Helena Carneiro, and Fariba Hafezi. Thanks also to Marcio Cavalcanti De Albequerque who, despite being in Brazil a lot of the time, designed all the poster artwork!
We would love a bit of feedback (other than more popsicles ) so we can continue to make this event better for next year.
We will provide a full finanicial breakdown for everyone at the June 19th PAC Meeting. What I can say right now is it looks like our Silent Auction was a huge success. Thank you to everyone who bid and congratulations to those who won!
Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!
Jody

Last minute reminders for Spring Fair

Wow! Spring Fair is here! Hope everyone is excited as we are!

Before I pass a couple things on about Spring Fair I want to remind all parents who order lunch for their child that SUSHI SUSHI (Tuesday and Thursday lunch providers) IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE! We have cancelled those lunches and have sent out numerous reminders however, there are still kids coming to the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays saying they have no food but usually would have Sushi. Please check your orders and either re-order from Calhoun`s or remember to send a packed lunch. We do not like to see any child going hungry at school. Thank you

 

Now….Spring Fair!

Just a reminder that this is a PAC fundraiser so if you have leftover tickets at the end of the evening we will not be giving refunds, We will have a tables throughout the entire fair selling tickets so feel free to buy a small amount at a time and come back to buy more if needed.

Also, we have added a booth in case you still want to order a NRP Yearbook. It will be cash sale….$30.

Be sure to wear sunscreen tomorrow. It is forecast to be a beautiful but hot day!

SEE YOU ALL AT THE FAIR!!!!!

Final countdown to Spring Fair

Before I send the final information about Spring Fair I wanted to say a huge thank you to all the NRP staff that organized the Terry Fox Run this year. It was so fun!
Of course I also wish to pass on my sincere thanks to all the amazing parents who came to cut oranges (so sorry about my miscalculation) and those who stood along the running routes making sure all our kids were safe. You all helped make this a great day for all the NRP kids! Thank you so much.
