Reduce waste with The Lunch Lady

The Lunch LadyIf you order food from The Lunch Lady, here are some ways that you can reduce waste:

  1. Please ask your child to bring home the food packaging rather than throwing it away at school. Much of it can be recycled at home.
  2. Does your child’s lunch sometimes come with plastic utensils that they don’t need? When you order your food, you can add the NFS (“NO FORKS OR SPOONS PLEASE”) option as an item on your order.
  3. If your child needs a fork or spoon for their lunch order, consider sending your own reusable utensils and adding the NFS option to your order.

Thanks for reducing waste and supporting Lakeview through our Lunch Programs!

Popcorn Days are coming!

Kernels Extraordinary PopcornThe Council thanks Leah Edmonds for volunteering to take the lead for Popcorn Days! Term 1 Popcorn Days will be every other Friday starting October 25th and one bonus day on December 13th. See our Calendar for all dates.

The following individual bags of Kernels popcorn are available: Buttersalt, Caramel, White Cheddar, Salt & Vinegar, Dill Pickle, and Ketchup. Each bag is $2. All proceeds from this fundraiser to go towards programs at Lakeview.

Popcorn ordering for Term 1 is open now on HotLunches.net. If you have any questions, please email lakeviewhotlunches@gmail.com.

Pizza Day ordering is open!

Online ordering is open for Term 1 of the Pizza lunch program. The deadline for Term 1 (Oct. 9 – Dec. 11) is October 3rd. A flyer will be coming home soon, and further information on ordering can be found on the Lunch Programs page. Reminder: you must register at hotlunches.net (even if you were registered last year) before placing your order. The school code is: LVHL

Our lunch programs raise funds for projects to benefit Lakeview students. (They also give parents a break from making lunches!)

Please note that we are no longer using PayPal to process online payments. We now use a payment gateway called Bambora. There is no need to create an account with Bambora; it simply acts as a secure gateway for processing your credit card payment.

What about popcorn?? We are still in need of a popcorn coordinator. Unfortunately, we cannot offer the popcorn until this position is filled. Please consider spending 30 minutes every two weeks organizing the popcorn for each classroom. If you have time to offer, please contact lakeviewhotlunches@gmail.com.

What about pita days?? Due to low demand, we are no longer offering Pita Pit wraps as part of our Hot Lunches Program.

Co-lead needed for November Book Fair

We are hoping to put on another Scholastic Book Fair in November to raise funds to buy books for Lakeview’s classrooms and library.

However, we need help! We are looking for a volunteer to assist our Book Fair lead parent. Our lead is experienced with doing the fair but needs a co-lead to help get everything done.

The co-lead would:

  • help with logistics and planning over email
  • be at the school Wednesday, Nov. 13, to help set up
  • help with the sale on the evening of Thursday, Nov. 14 (during parent-teacher interviews)
  • help with the sale and tear down during the day on Friday, Nov. 15, (during parent-teacher interviews)
  • help with the accounting after the fair

We can’t run this fair without a co-lead! If you can help, please email chair@lakeviewschoolcouncil.ca.
