Tips for Toast

Tips for Toast is a program that was started at Greenfield as a way of receiving donations for our Breakfast Program.  Before HotLunches, we had “paper” ordering for our lunch program.  Parents could round up the amount owing for lunches (e.g. $12.45 to $13.00) as a way for providing support to the Breakfast Program.   These small amounts went a long way to seeing that our Breakfast Program had the dollars it needed to provide breakfast each day for every student who wanted it.

With the change to the Hotlunches online ordering system, we still have Tips for Toast.  Parents who wish to contribute to the Breakfast Program can select the Tips for Toast option in the HotLunches menu which is on the last ordering day of each month.

As our school community knows, we have a wonderful Breakfast Program.  It is supported and managed by a wonderful group of volunteers who provide a healthy breakfast to our students.  Although some government dollars are provided to school breakfast programs, this does not cover the amount needed to run the program.  Please consider contributing to Tips for Toast.

Today

Students and staff are back to our regular routine at Greenfield today after yesterday’s unexpected evacuation and early dismissal.

The Public School Branch (PBS) has provided information on the PBS website at www.gov.pe.ca/edu/psb  and in the media so parents would be aware of what occurred yesterday to disrupt the school day.  What parents may not know is that everything went remarkably well here at Greenfield. Students were already outdoors for recess with supervising teachers.  When it was determined that evacuation was necessary, all teachers joined our students outdoors and they proceeded to our off-site location in an orderly and safe way.  Bus drivers and parents were contacted and students went safely home.

A big thank you goes out to our staff (teachers, E.A.’s, bus drivers, custodian, and Amy) who were calm, reassuring and professional in an unusual situation, to our students for their excellent conduct and cooperation, to parents for their support and their kind comments, and especially to Mrs. Finniss who provided the leadership for everyone yesterday.
