Hello Tennyson parents - Are you already tired of making lunches?  
Do you miss the wonderful Munchalunch reminder emails?

The first Hot Lunch ordering session of the year is now open! Due to the new eating arrangements, there are changes - please read this info before sending questions!

Ordering Info
Ordering open: now - Wednesday, Sep 30
In order to start lunches in October, this deadline MUST be firm. You can add lunch orders late (but we need a week before your order will apply).

Includes October 5 (first lunch) - January 27 lunches. 
Yes, it is a long lunch period but changes can be made if needed (with a week's notice) by contacting the lunch administrator
The MunchaLunch link can be found at www.lordtennyson.ca (bottom-left). If you are new to the school, you will need to create an account first. Once you hit "submit my order", your order has been submitted even if you do not pay immediately. If you need to make changes, email hotlunches@lordtennyson.ca.

All parents will be asked to update their children's divisions when they first log in. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT - IF THE DIVISION IS NOT CORRECT, WE CAN'T GET THE LUNCH TO THEM! (remember, half of the students are eating in their classrooms this year).

This ordering session covers 14 Pizza Wednesdays, 14 Sushi Mondays, 6 Calhouns Friday lunches, and 1 Pumpkin Patch (limited quantity)… if you don't gasp at your total, you may have missed some days. Of course, the system allows complete flexibility (order everything, nothing, or any amount in between). Feel free to split your payment into 2 cheques by including one post-dated cheque for half of your total. Be sure to read the Menu 1 & Menu 2 info provided below to avoid hungry children with no lunches!
Only pre-ordered lunches will be provided - there will be no "day of" sales.

Kindergarten parents (and anyone else) - lunches can be added in late so please feel free to wait and see what your child thinks as the lunches start and then email the lunch coordinator if you would like to create an order. We will reopen lunch ordering after the first week or two so that new orders can be placed. But orders take a week to kick in (we order in advance from the suppliers).
Changes can also be made to orders (with a weeks notice).

Pizza Wednesdays (run by Quebec 2017)
Panago pizza will be offered on Wednesdays (cheese or pepperoni slice).  There will be no drinks or treats due to the many students who now eat in their classrooms. We are trying to avoid messes and causing problems for teachers.

Sushi Mondays (run by PAC)
Sushi will continue to be provided by Sushi Aoki (located at Broadway and Cypress).
Sushi options include California roll, cucumber roll, avocado roll, wild salmon roll, tuna roll, edamame, and chicken teriyaki.
No drinks or treats are on the menu - please send a water bottle for your child.

Calhoun's Fridays (run by Quebec 2017)
There are 6 Friday lunches throughout the term (menu items are supplied by Calhoun's.) Menu 1 covers Oct 16, Dec 4, Jan 8 and Menu 2 covers Nov 6, Dec 11, Jan 22. Again, no drinks or treats. Get your child a nice water bottle!
Grade 6 & 7 students - please be aware that these students have the option of eating out every Friday (soon to be announced!) - please order accordingly (don't order from Friday menus if your son/daughter prefers to go out).


Volunteers are needed on all lunch days! It is a great way to connect with students and meet other parents (and see your child at lunch).
Time commitment is 11:30am - 12:30pm on the lunch day and there is no need to commit to every week.
Please contact Toni Botham if you would like to volunteer (or sign up when you place your order).

Pumpkin Patch, Mon, Oct 19
If you pre-order (and pay for) your pumpkin, students don't need to bring cash to the Tennyson Pumpkin Patch.
Due to the crazy weather and lack of rain this summer, we have limited access to pumpkins. This item will be removed from the ordering once we have reached our limit!
Thank you once again to Michael Tudorie (Tennyson dad and realtor) who is sponsoring our Pumpkin Patch for Quebec 2017.

Menu 1 & Menu 2: What does it mean?
All menus are set up as Menu 1 & Menu 2.  They cover alternating weeks (to save time when ordering but still allow flexibility with the options).
Order from BOTH Menus (1 & 2) if you want lunches every week!  If you only order from Pizza Menu 1, your child will get pizza every second week.
Want lunches only once or twice a month?  Planning a family vacation? You can easily remove any days at the END of ordering (keep going until the end!).

**** If you do not receive a Munchalunch reminder email, your child will not have a lunch provided. **** Please send one!
We can only provide what was actually ordered (not what you hoped to or intended to order) … we are good, but not THAT good!
You can log in to Munchalunch anytime to check your orders. Use the My Account - View My Orders tab.
Your questions will always be cheerfully answered (well, almost always - it is not a real job after all) … email HotLunches@lordtennyson.ca

Proceeds from lunches go towards sending next year's Gr 7 students to Quebec, the Quebec Futures Fund, and PAC.
