Raise funds while you shop with FundScrip

FundScrip: Buy Gift Cards to Support Our Group. Start Now!Please consider supporting our Lakeview School Council to raise funds for our students, teachers, and school by purchasing gift cards through FundScrip. (Link and Instructions below)

Don’t think of this as just a GIFT card, these cards can be used to buy pretty much anything! …your groceries, fill your car, a night out, a new wardrobe… (because we all know our kids grow way too fast!).

Whenever you buy a gift card you still get the full amount that you purchase, but a percentage goes to our fundraising campaign. It’s like giving away free money on things you would be purchasing anyway!

We would love it if you also shared this with your friends and family. The more we raise the more we can do!

Lakeview Family Support Fund update

The Covid-19 pandemic has affected us all in so many ways – as a school, as a community, and, of course, as individuals. The Family Support Fund has been open for two weeks and it has been a success. To date we have raised over $1500!

If you are interested in donating, there is still time. Here are the details:

We have set up a donation fund to help support Lakeview families in need during this time. Our principal, Jennifer Capitani, will work closely with the families in need to ensure the funds are distributed accordingly.

MAKE YOUR DONATION HERE

Any excess funds raised will be donated to The Education Foundation of Ottawa which supports all students in the OCDSB.

As we are not a registered charity but rather families helping other families in a very challenging time, we are unable to provide a tax receipt. We thank you for your understanding.

If you have already signed-up for the remaining pizza days and would like to donate those funds please send an email to lakeviewhotlunches@gmail.com to let them know.

If you are finding yourself in need of support at this time, please reach out to our Principal, Jennifer Capitani (jennifer.capitani@ocdsb.ca).

School Council Meetings

The OCDSB has directed schools to cancel School Council meetings going forward for the 2019-2020 school year. We are required to have 5 meetings annually, and our School Council at Lakeview has already met this requirement. If you would like to contact our council co-chairs, please email Aron and Michael at chair@lakeviewschoolcouncil.ca.

Access to Lakeview Public School

For the foreseeable future OCDSB does not plan to allow teacher or parent access to the school to retrieve items. As more information becomes available, Principal Capitani will keep our school community informed.

Update on Hot Lunches ordering

Given the closure of the school for the 2 weeks following March Break, we have made the following adjustments to the Hot Lunches programs:

  • The last pizza and popcorn days from Term 2, which were scheduled for March 25th and 27th, will be rescheduled to when school starts back up. We will update you with the exact dates when more information is available.
  • Ordering for Term 3 has been paused for now. Once we know when the school will re-open, we will re-start Hot Lunches ordering for the remainder of Term 3.
  • For those who have already placed their Term 3 orders, we will issue refunds once we know how many weeks of Term 3 remain.

If you have any questions, please contact lakeviewhotlunches@gmail.com.
