Hot Lunch

Some information about how the hot lunch program works at our school:

  • There are 2 locations for lunch. Intermediate kids (Gr 4-7) eat in the gym and primary (Gr K-3) eat in the music room. Lunch is at 12:10.
  • There are 2 different alternating weekly menus. Pizza (from Papa John’s) one week and Catered hot lunch (from C’est Mon Cafe) the other.

Please consider volunteering – this program cannot run without volunteers each Friday.  Here is an overview of what you can expect at a volunteer shift (from 11:45-12:30 approx.).  If you can volunteer, please tick the box on the hot lunch ordering page, or send an email to info@carnarvonpac.ca.

PRIMARY (Music Room)

***Food needs to be distributed prior to kids entering the lunch room at 12:10***

  • Parent volunteers meet in the music room at 11:45
    Each class is assigned a table to eat. Tables are set up by the school engineer.
    Each child that has purchased lunch has a slip of paper with their name and their order. These will be prepared by us and will be in an envelope with their class division on it.
    There may be a class in the activity room during set up time so parents will have to work quietly.
  • First thing that we do is take each Div envelope and place the slips of paper onto the assigned table.  Then we place paper towels as place mats under each slip of paper.

***Our job is to assist kids that ask for help and help them get seconds on entrees on catered lunch days. (no seconds with pizza, drinks or desserts) Also, we help the kids figure out the garbage and recycling and whatever clean up at the end like helping put the pizza boxes in the green bin outside and putting the pizza bags outside the office.***
