HOT LUNCH

 We are excited to announce that Shabonee will be offering hot lunch two days per week (Monday and Thursday) starting November 1st.  Please look out for the PTA Council email with more details.

Orders are open now: https://ptgms.com/lunchsolutions/shabonee/

The Hot Lunch program is fluid and can change month to month.  We are all hoping that as the year goes on and vaccines get approved for children ages 5-11, the distance recommendations during lunch will change so we can have children sit closer than 6 feet apart. This will make serving hot lunch easier and give the PTA the opportunity to expand to more days.

This program is dependent on Hot Lunch volunteers, so please sign up to help! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B054AADAA29A4FD0-20192020

 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

The Shabonee PTA can't do anything without YOU - fun activities at Shabonee need fun people to run them!  We have several PTA committees that could still use your ideas and enthusiasm for the 2021-22 school year, including Family Fun Night, Fundraising, and the Birthday Signs committee.  And we always need volunteers for Lunch Supervision and Hot Lunch.
