Davisville Lunch Programs: date changes

The forms for Davisville’s two hot lunch programs – FoodShare and Pizza Lunch – previously sent home were missing some dates. Corrected forms have now been sent out to parents by email. If you have not received these revised forms, you can download a copy here:

FoodShare Hot Lunch Program: The Food Share program runs EVERY Tuesday and Thursday.  If you would like to participate in this lunch program, please complete the FoodShare form for November and December and return it to your child’s  teacher by OCTOBER 28TH.  

Food Share Dates:

  • November 5, 7, 12, 14, 19, 21, 26, 28
  • December 3, 5, 10, 12, 17, 19

The Pizza Lunch Program: Parent volunteers run the pizza lunch as a fundraising program.  The pizza is served every other Friday except when there is a holiday. To avoid conflicts with the Food Share schedule, in cases of holidays, we are now moving pizza day to the Wednesday.  The next date change will be December 19th to December 18th.   If you have already registered for pizza lunch, please just make note of the date changes – you do not need to resubmit a form.

Pizza Lunch Dates – these dates are not for CHILDCARE CHILDREN IN GRADES 1-6 (Daycare children have a separate pizza lunch). The revised dates are in bold:

  • October 25
  • November 8, 22
  • December 6, 18
  • January 17, 31
  • February 14, 28
  • March 21
  • April 4, 16
  • May 2, 16, 30
  • June 13, 25

Great Ways to Help Your School

Are you wondering how you can participate in the Davisville-MTSD school community? We have some great ideas for you:

Pizza Lunch Coordinator: We’ve had really well-run pizza lunch program for the past few years (thanks Kimberly!) and we need someone to take it over this year. Here’s what’s involved: sending out order forms, creating class lists, ordering pizza, and coordinating volunteers to serve the pizza. This is a substantial fundraiser for us, the kids enjoy it, and parents appreciate not having to pack a lunch on those days. Sound like fun? We encourage you to step forward to take this on.

QSP Magazine Fundraiser: The parent running this (thank you Sherry!) may be in her last year at Davisville and needs someone who can help this year and carry this on next year. The work on this is concentrated on a two week period in October, where you’ll need to spend an hour or two in the school every day for those two weeks to gather and record orders, and hand out prizes. You will also be the contact for our QSP representative. This year our campaign begins on Tuesday, October 4th, and ends on Tuesday, October 18th. This is a big fundraiser for us, and one we’d like to be able to continue.

Scholastic Book Orders: This is a great way to get more books in our kids’ hands at a great price while helping the school. Our current coordinator (thanks Monique!) needs some help and she may be returning to work full-time. We need someone to learn the process now and be ready to take over if need be. This job entails overseeing the distribution of order catalogues, collecting orders, and distributing books.

Looking for more ideas: our school council elections and the first council meeting of this school year take place on Tuesday, September 27. School council coordinates many events and programs within the school and provides a helpful forum for communication between parents and school staff.

A parent self-nomination form was sent home with all students last Friday, September 9. You can download a copy here as well.

If you have any questions about any of these positions, please get in touch!

Parent involvement makes for a great school community. Join the many other parents already helping to make this school year a great one for all of us!
