Thanksgiving Family Lunches: Tuesday, November 19 and Wednesday, November 20

We are delighted that Ms. Trayce, our lunchroom manager, has agreed to cater our family lunch this year! To make her job more manageable and to alleviate parking and crowd congestion, we are separating our special lunches into two separate days:

                          Preschoolers (2's, 3's and 4's) - Tuesday, November 19

                          Kindergarten and Elementary - Wednesday, November 20

Ticket prices are $8.00 for children through 3rd Grade; $12.00 for students 4th Grade and up, and Adults


Be sure to fully read the details on the order form! Look for order forms in backpacks, by the front office, or download here:

Our lunchroom manager is Ms. Trayce DeFrenchi, or "Meema" to many of our students! She has an extensive background in food service and restaurant management, and she is excited to be working with us at First Christian - a place very dear to her heart! The bulk of her menu is homemade and nutritious, and we hope that your kids will be as excited to eat at school as Ms. Trayce is to cook for them!

How To Order:

Monthly lunch menus are available through the above link. Please order lunches for each week by turning in an order form by the WEDNESDAY BEFORE. This helps Ms. Trayce get a good idea of how much food she needs to prepare and have on hand. Forms should be turned in to the red box next to the office. Forms are available each week in children's backpacks, and on the entryway table by the front office.

How to Pay:

Cash - turned in with order forms

Checks - made payable to Trayce DeFrenchi or to "cash"

Parents as Partners is our school-wide volunteer program in which parents and families provide items and services we need to help complete events and special days at the school. By helping to offset these costs and time spent working, the PAP program allows us to keep our tuition low, while still offering a variety of fun events and special programs for our students.
