Breakfast Program
We have made several changes to this years’ breakfast
program. We will be offering breakfast Monday to
Friday. In addition to our normal grab and go items of
yogurt, granola bars and cheese strings, we will be
offering toast and cereal. We also hope to incorporate
more fruit options in the weeks to follow. Enhancing
this program for your children is at a tremendous
financial cost to our school. Fortunately, we have a
limited amount of sponsorship from the “Kids Eat
Smart” Foundation. However, there is absolutely no
way we can fund such an endeavor without donations
from the community and parents whose children avail
of such an important program. “Kids Eat Smart” will
match any and all non-cash and cash donations we
receive. This years’ program will be run by parent
volunteers. Right now we have had several parents
come forward to help prepare and serve breakfast, order
supplies, pick up supplies etc… If you wish to
volunteer your time, please contact Mr. Reid at the
school. In the weeks to follow we be conducting a
number of fund raising initiatives to help pay for our
program. We will be conducting our Kids Walk to
Breakfast in the weeks to follow. We are looking for
donations of cheeze whiz , strawberry fruit jam,
eversweet margarine, multi-grain cheerios, apple and
orange juice (plastic or tetra packs) this week, but
would be more than happy for any cash donations to
upstart our program. All money donations can be made
to the office. We look forward to your support.

Bike Safety
The Placentia Detachment of the RCMP would like to remind
parents and students that on April 1st, 2015, it became
mandatory to wear a bicycle helmet when cycling on public
roadways. Research shows that wearing helmets significantly
reduces bicycle-related head injuries. Fines for not wearing a
bicycle helmet while riding range from $25 to $180. Parents
of children under 16 will be responsible if they knowingly
allow their children to cycle without a helmet. Collecting
fines is not our objective, ensuring your child’s safety, is!

Once again, the Southeast Playground Improvement
Committee has entered into the Aviva Community

playground equipment. We are asking for your help
again this year. Starting Oct 6th through Oct. 18th, we
are asking everyone to vote for the Wayne John Searle
Memorial Recreation Complex through facebook or
email. Voting is only once a day, and every votes
helps. You can join our facebook group as well at:
