Shrove Tuesday is coming up!!
On Tuesday March 5th, St. Augustine Storm students and staff will ‘break bread’ together in the gym as a symbolic reminder that Lent is upon us.
Students will be served 1 pancake each with syrup, courtesy of our St. Augustine Parent Council. Pancakes will be provided by The Lunch Lady, the same company that provides us with our Turkey Dogs. They will be served in the morning, so your student will still need to bring a lunch and snacks for the rest of the day.
Parents are asked to send their child(ren) to school with a ziplock bag containing a re-useable plate and cutlery. Plates and cutlery will be rinsed and sent back home in the ziplock bag. In an effort to be eco-friendly, we ask that if possible, you NOT send your student with disposable items. All items sent will be returned home regardless.
While we endeavour to ensure that all our students receive a pancake that does not contain an allergen for your child, if your child has allergies other than nut allergies and you would prefer to send them a pancake you have made at home yourself, you are welcome to do that. We will re heat it for them before serving it. We will ensure that all pancakes served are made with nut/tree nut free products.
We look forward to gathering as a student body to celebrate this occasion together.
