MEAL OF THE WEEK 2023-24
MEAL OF THE WEEK is always a hit! The Wiebe Family purchased this wonderful item at our auction this past spring! Will you help with cooking a meal for them this year?
Our goal is to make them feel like they are king and queen each Thursday during the school year. We ask that the meals be mainly homemade and could serve a family of up to 6 people. Please include a salad, side dish, main course, and dessert. Anything that you might want to add to make it fun and memorable is highly encouraged. There are no food allergies in the family. Or due to the times we live in provide a restaurant gift card.Volunteer for Meal of the Week!
Each class has a monthly or quarterly social gathering for moms and/or dads. Generally, this is a potluck luncheon or a happy hour, in a parent's home, in which the moms attend. Occasionally, this event will be at a restaurant, in the evening, or may include the dads. The Lunch Bunch Coordinators will send an invitation through Evite, Sign-up Genius, or similar program. If you do not want to receive the emails, you may opt-out.
