Ease back into the school routine without any post-holiday stress - December 15th deadline

The whirlwind of the holiday break may sweep you up and before you know it, school begins and you need to find the lunch box and thermos again! Why not alleviate your stress, energy and time and sign your child(ren) up for January’s lunch program? Better yet, sign up for the rest of the year and you won’t have to worry about uneaten lunches coming back home.

As we mentioned earlier, Maggie, Ferncliff Daycare’s long-time employee and cook, has announced her retirement as of December 31, 2014. Maggie has been providing yummy and healthy meals for both the daycare children and Fern’s lunch program participants for many years. The Food Committee would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Maggie for preparing food that students love to eat and for all her energy and hard work in helping us run a successful lunch program.

So, what happens in January 2015?
Rest assured, the program will continue and your child(ren) will be served a hot lunch the first day back to school. Beginning January 5, certified and trained Toronto District School Board nutrition staff will prepare lunches and kindersnacks in Fern’s kitchen for all participants. For full details, please go to Fern’s lunch program web page at http://fernavenuepublicschool.blogspot.ca/p/lunch-program.html

The menu – not fully confirmed – will feature everything from chicken cacciatore, teriyaki and curry to lasagna, chili and shepherd’s pie, among other delicious (and nutritious, but you don’t need to tell your kids that) lunches.

Ready to sign up? Please fill out, detach and submit the form with your payment in a sealed envelope. The wall-mounted black secure deposit box is conveniently located outside the Ferncliff Daycare office (room 103). The deadline for your order is Monday, December 15 to begin lunch on Monday, January 5. No extensions will be given.
