Student Nutrition at St. Patrick’s
(The Breakfast Club)
Dear Irish Families and Community Members,
On behalf of the organizers of the Breakfast Program, please accept our sincere thanks for your support of this year’s Breakfast Program Christmas Card fundraiser. Your response has been tremendous, and the funds that we have already raised will go a long way to helping provide a healthy start each and every day for the students at St. Patrick’s. Our fundraising campaign continues until December 19th, so even if you have not had a chance yet to support the program, there is still time. Special thanks goes out to 3 St. Patrick’s Art students – Shianna Martin, Karly McCrea and Maddie McCarthy. These students designed the Christmas cards that we are using this year. The details from our original message about the Christmas Card fundraiser are included below for your convenience.
All students and parents are reminded that St. Patrick’s offers a COMPLETELY FREE & INCLUSIVE student nutrition program, five days a week, from 7:30 – 8:00 a.m. in the brand new Foods/Culinary Technology classroom (Room 108). The “Breakfast Club” provides a healthy start to the day and encourages students to consider the importance of eating a healthy, balanced diet. Each and every school morning we serve a variety of breakfast items including fresh fruit, yogurt and cheese, bagels, muffins and water or juice. A special thanks goes out to Tim Horton’s in Corunna for their generous support. The Breakfast Program is run by a large network of teacher volunteers. The program is always looking for monetary donations [we currently average around 140 students per day]. If any parent or guardian would like to contribute or know about any possible sources of outside funding, please contact Mr. Coene at firstname.lastname@example.org
During this Christmas Season, the Breakfast Club is also running a special fundraising initiative. For each donation that is made, parents/families will receive access to our very special St. Patrick’s Christmas Card that will read
“A donation has been made in your name this Christmas to the
St. Patrick’s Breakfast Program!
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year”.
There will be an additional description of the benefits of the program inside the card. We are excited to add that this year’s series of cards has been designed by our own Grade 12 Art students. The cards make great hostess gifts, stocking stuffers, teacher gifts, etc. Donations can be made in any amount and you are welcome to pick up multiple Christmas cards for any donation. You can donate in increments of $10 using School Cash Online [see link below] or by cheque [any amount] made out to “St. Patrick’s CHS”. Charitable Tax Receipts for donations over $20.00 will be sent to you provided you print off your donation receipt with full name and mailing address and return to the main office by Dec. 19th. After you donate, drop-in to pick up your cards or have your child pick them up for you. Cards will be available from Mrs. L. Wagner in the Main Office.
