Pizza Lunches will begin in October (23rd). Order forms should be returned through your child's classroom (you can pay with 1 cheques but order using separate envelopes). Pizza is provided by Pizza Pizza.
If you have any questions or comments, you can email email@example.com.
You can download a printable flyer for Pizza Lunches with their dates and order deadlines. The pizza lunch order form can be downloaded here.
Please remind your child what you have ordered for them – we can only serve them what you ordered. Also, encourage your child to speak to any of the adults working pizza lunch if they have any issues and we will do our best to solve it (e.g. they don’t get any pizza). Do provide feedback via the Pizza email!! We won’t know about individual issues if no one tells us!!
Pizza is ordered 1 WEEK in advance, due to the large size of the order.
VOLUNTEERS: if you can spare 30 – 60 minutes (anytime between 11:00 – 12:00) to help set up or serve pizza please email us.
Parents, remind your students:
Pizza Lunch Fact vs Myth - The Truth Will Set You Free
Myth #1: School Staff run pizza lunch.
FALSE!! Pizza lunch is 100% run by volunteers - parent volunteers coordinate and make the lunch happen. There are also student volunteers who help with pizza lunch. Because it is run by volunteers, not staff, we have no access to class lists or student info - we process orders by what is on the order envelopes only - your student will be placed in the class listed on the order envelope. If your student changes classes please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. While we try our best, we are not perfect and definitely not clairvoyant - please communicate with us!!
Myth #2: Lots of extra pizza is ordered - last minute/day of orders are fine!!
FALSE!! It would be very wasteful to order all kinds of extra pizza - we only order what is needed. The pizza is ordered one week before each lunch (due to the huge size of our delivery). Deadlines for each pizza lunch can be found on dukesac.ca/community/pizza lunch.
Myth #3: Students don't need to sign up to to get pizza lunch.
FALSE!! All students must fill in an order envelope to receive pizza - we can't give pizza to a student without it. Two reasons for this: 1) we don't know if a student has parent permission unless it is filled out and 2) we don't know what to order for your student if they have not filled out an envelope. See Myth #2. Pizza sponsorships are available but an envelope still needs to be filled out to ensure we order enough pizza (please contact us or Ms. Helpert to sign up for a sponsorship).
Fact #1: Pizza volunteers like to solve problems.
TRUE!! We try hard to solve all pizza issues on the spot - students can speak to the volunteers at lunch. Parents, please let your student know what you have ordered for them. We can only serve what has been ordered - often students think their order is something different and there is disappointment at the lunch.
