Fairview Lunch Program wishes to thank Dana Drury for 7 years of organizing the hot lunch program for Fairview students! Dana is moving on to another phase of her life and Kathleen Wilde-Padyk has taken on the role. We owe Dana a HUGE thanks and wish her all the best! Welcome Kathleen!

Kathleen is looking to build up a dedicated and reliable team of parents to help organize, run, shop, and volunteer a few hours per month to continue running our hot lunch program with the amount of success we have experienced so far.

Job Description includes:

  • - A valid Police Check,
  • - Working in the staffroom and gym from 10:00 for two hours on a Tuesday to assemble orders and put them in classroom bins,
  • - Grade 5 students dispense bins to classrooms, while you would stay around to sort out problems with orders (if any).
  • - Tidy up the bins as they are returned from the classrooms and store them for the next week.
  • - Your shift is complete by 12:00.
  • - We’re looking for enough volunteers so no one is working more than once a month.

- If this sounds interesting to you for NOW or the FALL (food usually starts in October) please call Secretary Michele Edmondson, leave her your name and contact information.

- FYI, Dads and Grandparents are welcome…not just Moms!

Coronation School Building Project
It brings me great pleasure to inform you, in the fall, a small group of people began meeting to discuss and plan the new Coronation School Building Project.  The group is a dynamic mix of people including architects, school board trustees and superintendents, Principal Lougheed and myself as your elected parent representative.

We are in the beginning stages only, and there is a lot still to cover. At the moment the site plan is currently under review at the city, and we are discussing possible layouts in and around the building.

I expect to be able to share more details, including the anticipated completion date when the first steps of planning and approvals by the City are completed.

As your parent representative, I'm very interested in hearing what you have to say! If you have any questions, concerns or ideas, please feel free to let me know!  You can contact me at tsmith.nokia@gmail.com.
