Breakfast for Learning
Andrew School would like to thank the following local businesses for their support of our Breakfast for Learning Program for the 2016-2017 school year. Your donations are greatly appreciated and have gone a long way in providing healthy breakfast choices for our students. Because of your contributions, we are able to purchase a variety of fruits, dairy products, meats, and breads for the students. Many children in our school look forward to breakfast each morning and with your support we are able to continue providing this service. We have also received a nutrition grant from the National Breakfast for Learning Program. This grant included funds from President’s Choice Children’s Charity Menu Essentials which is strictly used for purchasing produce and dairy products. The remainder of the grant can be used to purchase supplies such as plates, cups, napkins, and cleaning supplies as well as small appliances including toasters, an electric knife, etc. Once again, we would like to thank these businesses for their generous support and a special thank-you to Mrs. Denise Dorland for contributing funds to our program upon her retirement. All of the donations are valued by our Breakfast for Learning team.

Thank you for another great year using the Acorn Online QuickPay system. Please continue to go online to check that all your schools fees have been paid for the 2015 – 2016 school year as field trips, yearend activities and lost books may be added until school lets out for the summer.
For outstanding fees for 2015 – 2016, online payments for students returning to an Elk Island Public School for 2016 – 2017 may be made throughout the summer, using the PowerSchool parent portal. After August 4, 2016, online payments for students who are graduating or leaving Elk Island Public Schools will need to be made through the Student Quick Pay link https://www.studentquickpay.com/eips. Parents will then create a new account and link their student with the student ID.
All fees for the 2016 – 2017 school year will be available at the beginning of September. PLEASE NOTE that Junior High and Senior High fees may change as courses are added and deleted. The course change deadline is September 12, 2016.
