We are looking for spare iphone/ipad chargers with the newest attachment (eg. for iphone 6, 7, 8). We know that families sometimes have extras that they do not need, and we are happy to take these off your hands. We do purchase new technology as needed, but also like to re-use cables for our ipads as it is environmentally friendly and cost-effective. Merci!
Peer Tutoring is a wonderful program here at Tennyson with a long standing tradition. For the past twenty years, Grade 6 students have been tutoring their Grade 3 peers in French reading and writing. With the guidance of Tennyson resource teacher and parent volunteer monitors, the Grade 6 students have read with their younger peers and then helped them with their written responses all in French. The Grade 3 students also receive kind and specific feedback which then motivates them to improve their French language skills. Peer tutoring is beneficial to our students by providing them with an amazing opportunity to share ideas, organize learning activities, collaborate with each other and make friendships that extend beyond the classroom.
The program runs on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9 to 9:30 am in the library from October 2, 2018 year-round.
We are looking for French speaking parent volunteers on one or two of these days for the half an hour in the morning. We will provide training. If you are interested, please let Mme Regina Vosahlo know as soon as possible at email@example.com or in person at my office at Tennyson.

Are you already tired of making lunches? Do you miss the wonderful Munchalunch reminder emails?
The first Lunch ordering session of the year is now open! Order by Wed, Sep 26 if you want the first Monday Sushi Lunch.
Please note that C’est Mon Cafe Tuesday is also an option but the ordering is done directly on their site, not through Munchalunch. Another email will be sent when they are ready for us.
I know you want to order lunches immediately (and you should do it very soon) but PLEASE take a moment to chat with your child. Your child has for sure an opinion about what shows up in front of them.
Panago pizza will be offered on Wednesdays (cheese or pepperoni slice … you can order multiple slices). The treat option will be a Plaisir Sucre oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. There will be no drinks. We are trying to avoid messes and waste. WATER BOTTLES ARE AWESOME!
Our new Sushi provider will be QQ (located at Broadway and Fir). Sushi options include California roll, cucumber roll, avocado roll, salmon roll, tuna roll, edamame and chicken teriyaki. Due to the new provider, a couple of prices are increased, some stay the same and others are decreased. No drinks or treats are on the menu - please send a water bottle for your child. WATER BOTTLES ARE AWESOME!
PLEASE READ THE MENU 1 / MENU 2 INFO BELOW - VERY IMPORTANT FOR NEWBIES AND PARENTS WHO LIKE TO ALTERNATE BETWEEN SUSHI AND PIZZA. YOU MUST ORDER FROM BOTH MENU 1 AND MENU 2 IF YOU WANT WEEKLY LUNCHES … THEY COVER ALTERNATING WEEKS.
The lunches are run by parent volunteers and volunteers are needed on all lunch days. It is a great way to connect with students and meet other parents (and see your child at lunch). Is your young student having a tough time adjusting? What a great excuse to come visit them at lunch … win-win! We will welcome you with open arms (unless that makes you feel uncomfortable, then we will hold off on the bear hugs).
The time commitment is 11:30 - 12:30pm on the lunch day and there is no need to commit to every week.
Please contact Jackie Corlett if you would like to volunteer for Monday Sushi Days, Heather MacRitchie for Wednesday Pizza Days, and Christine Powell for C’est Mon Café Tuesdays (you can also sign up for Mondays and Wednesdays when you order).
Menu 1 & Menu 2: What does it mean?
**** If you do not receive a Munchalunch reminder email, your child will not have a lunch provided. **** Please send one!
We can only provide what was actually ordered (not what you hoped to or intended to order) … we are good, but not THAT good! You can log in to Munchalunch anytime to check your orders. Use the My Account - View My Orders tab.
Your questions will be answered … email firstname.lastname@example.org
Proceeds from lunches go towards sending next year’s Gr 7 students to Quebec, the Quebec Futures Fund, and PAC.
Thank you so much for the support!
