Dear Families,
Regrettably, I will not be returning as the Food Day Coordinator next Fall and food days will not happen unless someone steps up to take over. After volunteering for five years, and assisting for several years before that, it is time for me to move on to new challenges. If you, or a group of parents ­ (round up some friends, it’s a great opportunity if you want to get involved in a positive way in your child’s school;) are interested in taking on a rewarding challenge, please let me know. I am more than willing to train, mentor and share what I have learned. It is rewarding in ways that you would never think.
The Food Days do not have to look anything like what we have now. Make the Food Days fit your schedule and life. Only free on Fridays? Move them to Friday ­ set the schedule to what works for you. I can share the pros and cons of various options.
Our past lunch days have allowed us to raise almost $20,000 a year with the money going directly back to our children to cover the costs of such things as Scientist in the Schools, emergency bussing for walking field trips during inclement weather, field trip subsidies, anti bullying presentations, new technology, recess equipment, playgrounds, sports equipment, shade trees and many other initiatives. If no one steps up, we will have to cut back on the initiatives that we support, and, or rely on more traditional forms of fundraising, such as giftware, chocolate sales and magazine subscriptions.
Two quotes that have motivated me over the years are “ Be the change that you want to see in the world.” and “If it is to be, it is up to me.” Are you the change? It’s time to pass the baton on to the next group of parents. Please don’t hesitate to contact me, even if it is just to learn more about what is involved before making a commitment. Send me an email at or leave a message at 519­941­7487 x 500. (It’s worth it.)
Nancy Turner
Former Food Day Coordinator
Tomorrow, our final food day for the year is Hot Dog Day!!
