Pizza Lunch 2018-19 Coordinators Needed

Pizza LunchPizza Lunch is everyone’s favourite Friday!

We need you to lend a hand for Grade 1-8 Pizza Lunch next year.  Here are the volunteer opportunities available:

Pizza Lead (8 hours in September and 4 hours monthly thereafter)
Primary coordinator of pizza lunch.  This role is heavy in September as the order site needs to go live (done by an outside supplier) and the bulk of the orders will come in at this time.  Each month involves updating new orders, fielding any parent issues, updating the order for both Pizza Pizza and the volunteer who prints pizza cards, ordering the plates and juice, communicating the order with Pizza Pizza catering and update month to reflect changing student orders. Supervise Pizza Lunch Day.

Volunteer coordinator (3-4 hours monthly)
Send out monthly email to solicit volunteers and ensure that enough people are available.  Assign jobs to volunteers.  Supervise volunteers on Pizza Lunch Day.

Veggies and Fruit Coordinator (45 minutes monthly)
Speak with Loblaws in early September to secure their continued support and provide dates.  Confirm each order a week in advance.  Pick-up order Friday morning of Pizza Lunch and deliver to the school.

Pizza Lunch is an important fundraiser for the school and is loved by both the kids and parents – it cannot continue without volunteer support.

If you can fill one of these roles please contact runnymedespiritcommittee@gmail.com

Call for volunteers: Angry Birds Math and Amazing Math Race!

The STEM committee is looking for parent volunteers for the following activities:

Angry Birds Math
With the Angry Birds Math activity, kindergarten students get to measure, build, sort, graph and LAUNCH Angry Birds to apply what they’ve learned in math! This is a fantastic program, which runs in late May / early June, but it requires your help. Interested in helping to lead the program in your child’s classroom?

Please contact Dave Begleiter at david.begleiter@gmail.com.

Amazing Math Race
Calling all grade 3 parents (no math expertise required!) who would like to help run the Amazing Math Race in June. This is a half-day, off-site, fun math event where students run around and use their math and team-work skills.

Please contact the STEM committee at runnymedeSTEMcommittee@gmail.com

Nuit Orange: Program Revealed!

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

NO - sponsors

Attached is a digital copy of the program for our upcoming community event “Nuit Orange”.

The digital program is being circulated ahead of the event to help you plan your evening.  Below you will find a blocked-out timetable and schematic maps of the building’s various floors. The timetable has been colour coded to match the floor maps.

Food stations are demarcated by an orange box with a white knife and fork locations of food items are included in the timetable.

Don’t forget to order your refreshment tickets in advance!

Each performance space will have a mini-schedule posted outside of it on the evening of the event showing the specific rotation of small group performances in that room.

There will be a lot of moving performers during time blocks, however your child will know where they need to be and when. Please be respectful of the timelines and the announcements: this will allow the evening to run smoothly.

IMPORTANT!

We ask that once you have entered a room for a performance, you remain in that room for the duration of that time slot or until the end of all scheduled performances for that room. That way all student work is appreciated and respected.

Kindly ensure that your child is wearing their appropriate costume items and / or black bottoms and an orange top if they are performing.

Sincerely,

Ian Medley
Strings Teacher
Runnymede P.S.
