Registration for the Noon Hour Programs opens at 8am tomorrow - Tuesday, September 30th. Sign up early as many of these programs are popular and fill quickly. We would hate for your child to miss out!
To maximize the time for classes, registration will only be open for one week, from September 30th to Wednesday October 8th, 2014. Classes will begin the week of October 14, 2014.
On the home page of the Tennyson website (www.lordtennyson.ca) -- bottom left corner -- you will find the noon hour class descriptions for this term. We are pleased that many of our instructors from last year are back. Two new courses have been added and are not yet reflected in the descriptions on the website ... please see below for their descriptions.
Registration will be done through the Munchalunch website (just like the Hot Lunch program, you can 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 (especially important for future lunch orders).
Credits on your account from last year (cancelled Sports Day lunch) will be automatically applied at checkout.
Once you log into Munchalunch, click on the yellow “Fundraising” tab to find the Noon Hour offerings. 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.
All payments are due by Friday October 10th, 2014 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 very much appreciate your effort to keep your account balance at 0.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact our noon hour coordinator – Gloria Mason, (mom of Jed Mason in Division 12) by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
