DAY OF PEACE

LUNCH PROGRAM

In addition to our Wednesday Pizza day, MAL is excited to offer families an opportunity to purchase lunches on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from CoreLife. Please note this is a monthly plan with no cancellations or substitutions.


Orders for each month will be collected by the 15th and must be paid in full by the 30th of the month prior to your order or will be cancelled. No exceptions.


CoreLife provides a lunch menu each week so you can plan accordingly in the event your child does not favor the meal of the day - there are no substitutions. If you have not signed up for Wednesday Pizza Day, you will need to provide lunch for your child that day.

SNAPOLOGY - STILL TIME TO SIGN UP!

Snapology's after-school STEM Club for kindergarten and lower elementary friends starts THIS week.


They have revamped their after -school sessions this year with a better understanding that children need a break after working hard in school all day so our focus will be on providing the students a relaxed, fun, and engaging environment where they can play and learn together after their regular school day.


Can't make all 10-weeks? No worries, contact beckas@snapology.com with the weeks you cannot attend and get a code for a prorated rate so you only pay for the weeks you attend!
