Pizza Lunch Order form due Thurs Oct 6

Your child should be coming home with a pizza lunch order form in their backpack today. Please if you have more than one child, please keep each child’s order and payment separate. When we count the money and orders, we sort and process by classroom. When student orders are mixed together, we have to go back to the other classroom(s) and alter the order for that classroom. This slows down the process and sometimes errors are introduced because we thought that we covered all of these special cases but we miss something. It is very helpful when each child has their own order form and payment. Thank you!

If your child didn’t come home with an order envelope, you can download the PDF and print it at home on a #10 envelope.

This order form covers the first three pizza lunches of the year. Subway lunches and the remaining four pizza lunches will come home on other forms.

Cross-country information

The cross-country team asks cross-country students who own their own “Bowmore” shirt can you please wear your shirt on Friday? Bowmore doesn’t have enough jerseys for everyone. It doesn’t matter what type of shirt that you wear as long as it says “Bowmore” on it. The team jerseys will be for students who don’t own their own shirt.

Also, there was a letter that went home in the backpacks of participating students which can be downloaded here: Instructions and dates for cross-country (PDF)
