Dear Tennyson Families,
The Noon Hour Programs are back at Lord Tennyson!
For families who are new to the school, Tennyson noon hour programs are offered between 12:25pm to 12:55pm after students have eaten their lunch. This lunch program offers an opportunity for students to explore an array of courses from arts and crafts to music, science, dance, sports, and clubs. Class options change each term and courses are taught by experienced and paid instructors (including some Tennyson parents -- past and current). Students get an opportunity to try niche courses that can sometimes be hard to find … all in the convenience of the school setting.
Registration for the Fall term starts this weekend and here are the course descriptions.
The registration site will open on Sunday night September 27th at 7pm. Sign up early as many of these programs are popular and fill quickly. Classes begin week of October 5, 2015.
Registration will be done through the Munchalunch website (just like the Hot Lunch program, you use your same Hot Lunch account info). You can find a link for Munchalunch on the bottom left of the Tennyson homepage (beside the class descriptions). You will need to know your child's division to update your account ... please make sure it is correct.
Once you log into Munchalunch, click on the yellow “Fundraising” tab to find the Noon Hour offerings. These programs are operated by the PAC and have charges associated with them. Please note that these programs are not for fund-raising as the PAC operates this on a not-for-profit basis with volunteer coordination and support from the Tennyson Administration for student enrichment. Classes range from $42 to $107, depending entirely on the cost of the instructors and their materials. Some classes qualify for BC Children's Fitness or Arts Tax Credits for tax purposes. You can print your receipts when you order for those that qualify. See www.cra-arc.gc.ca/fitness/ for more info.
All payments are due by Friday October 2nd, 2015 and no refunds will be issued after the first week of classes.
You may either use the online options (PayPal and credit card), or ensure your cheque (payable to “Lord Tennyson PAC” and with the order number written on it) has been placed in the slot labeled “Noon Hour Programs” outside the school office by that date.
We welcome parent feedback and encourage you to send us an email or share your thoughts at a PAC meeting. You can email Gloria Mason at email@example.com for further queries or suggestions
