Walk & Wheel to School Week October 7-11

Macaulay Mariners will be celebrating active travel all week!
Students who walk or wheel (bike, scoot or skate etc.) all or part way to/from school, will get a sticker to put on our school trip-tracking poster. #CRDWalkWheel @crd_bc @CapitalRegionalDistrict

Here are some ways you can get involved:
• Participate in a walking school bus or bike train
• If driving, ‘Drive to Five’- look for a convenient parking location (Archie Browning Sports Centre )with a safe 5 minute walking route to the school (it’s good exercise and helps reduce traffic congestion).

MacPAC Fun Friday Lunch

Macaulay PAC Fun Food Friday Lunch is an optional paid lunch program offered monthly.  Kids enjoy a special lunch, families get a break from packing lunches, and any profits benefit PAC activities. Win-win-win! Here is the 2019/2020 schedule:

October 4 – Pizza                             March 6 – Subway                       

November 1 – Subway                                 April 3 – Pizza

December 6 – Pizza                                      May 1 – Subway

Please note:

  • Online orders are due noon the Saturday before the scheduled lunch, and paper orders are due on the Friday before (one week in advance). Any orders past this date will NOT be accepted.  
  • Unpaid orders in the HotLunches online order form will NOT be ordered. There will be a reminder email sent out 2 days before the order deadline if you have payment owing.
  • No monetary refunds will be given, consider it a donation to the PAC.
  • We work hard to deliver the lunches to the kids.  Please coach your child to ask an adult for help if there are any mixups and your child does not get their paid lunch in class. We can see who ordered and if they were missed we have spare lunches to ensure they don’t go without their paid lunch.  

You can choose to order one lunch at a time, or you can order all scheduled lunches at once.  Online ordering begins on September 21nd.  Paper order forms will still be available in the office in the weeks leading up to each lunch if you prefer to order this way.  Paper orders can go to the office or to the classroom teacher and payment can be made with exact cash or cheque payable to Macaulay PAC.
