Healthy Hunger Hot Lunch Program
As we get ready for another exciting year at school, it is also time to get the Hot Lunch program with Healthy Hunger up and running.
This online system requires a small amount of setup time at the beginning as you must register you and your child prior to ordering hot lunch the first time. Even if your child was registered last year, they must be reregistered. Once the initial setup process is complete, ordering for the remainder of the year should be quick and simple. This parent guide will assist you in using the program.
Our first Hot Lunch will be Monday Sept 26 and orders need to set up and ordered by this Wednesday September 21st.
All parents are invited to attend parent council meetings at Sherwood Heights. Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 29 at 7:00 pm in our school library.
We do not have a fundraising society, as we focus on discussion topics and communication. Some examples of topics that can be discussed are:
- Junior High Report Cards
- Feedback on administrative procedures
- Healthy Schools Initiative
- Digital Citizenship
- Math curriculum
We would like to build an active school council, that can support the school in our many initiatives and the school education plan. How do we want to build our school community, and create parent engagement? We are looking forward to seeing you at our next meeting.
Please make note of our Parent Council Meeting dates (all at 7:00 pm in the Sherwood Heights Library):
We look forward to seeing you there!
