Starting Monday Sept 19th through Sept 27th, place your kids’ lunch orders on the Munch-a-Lunch online system here . For those of you who are new to the school, we offer a variety of healthy lunch options like sushi, pizza, wraps, frozen yogurt, fresh juices plus a surprise new vendor that all the kids are sure to love this year.
We are excited to have volunteer Gr 6 and 7 students making deliveries to the classrooms starting Oct 6th, but we need more help with set up, prep and clean up. The Munch-a-Lunch system lets you sign up for Volunteer opportunities online and while you are there, remember to update your family’s contact information for the DL Online Student Directory. Once we have received all the updated contact information, the directory will be available to all those who have opted to share their information.
As always, thank you to our amazing Fun Foods Team who have worked over the summer to make sure DL’s largest fundraiser runs smoothly year round!
