Programs

School Council helps facilitate several programs at our school. See below for more information about each and how you can contribute.

Breakfast Club
Served Monday to Friday from 8:00 am to 8:20 am in the west hallway by the library - open to all students. Volunteers start preparing food at 7:30 am in the Snack Room, distribute the food in the hallway and then do clean up after until about 8:45 am. We are very fortunate to have the support of volunteers from Halton Food for Thought, the Rotary Club, Cargill and Ardent Mills. We also need assistance with grocery shopping and donations are welcome too.

Snack Program
Served weekly on Tuesday at first break (10 am) to all classes in the school. 2-3 volunteers prepare the trays from 8:30 am to 10:00 am. A tray with a snack such as pita and hummus, tortilla chips and salsa, apples and croissants, etc. is delivered to each class for them to snack on 'freely' during both breaks. Trays are then delivered back to the Snack Room for washing at 1:30 pm by another team of volunteers. We also need assistance with grocery shopping and donations are welcome too.

Food Days
Served weekly on Wednesdays at second break (12:25 pm), students can pre-order their Pizza Pizza pizza slices or Lunchbox orders (Pita Pita, Boston Pizza, Mr. Sub) online only. 2-3 volunteers prepare the orders and deliver them to the classrooms and then stay in the Snack Room to handle any concerns/questions and take back returned delivery containers.

Cookie Day
Students can pre-order their Terra Cotta Cookie Co. Cookies online for upcoming Cookie Days. 2-3 volunteers prepare the orders and deliver them to the classrooms and then stay in the Snack Room to handle any concerns/questions and take back returned delivery containers and forms.

Popcorn Day
Students can pre-order their Kernel Popcorn bags online for upcoming Popcorn Days. 2-3 volunteers prepare the orders and deliver them to the classrooms and then stay in the Snack Room to handle any concerns/questions and take back returned delivery containers and forms.

Kindergarten Mentoring Program
Are you a new JK parent/guardian? Do you have any questions or need some guidance/advice/tips? We have some wonderful SK parents who have offered to be mentors to our JK parents and can chat with you in person or by phone, text or email. Please contact mgpscouncil@gmail.com if you would like to be connected with an SK parent from your child’s room.

Birthday Book Club
Each MGPS student receives a Scholastic Book, a pencil and a sticker on (or close to) their birthday. Summer birthday packages are distributed in June.
