Spring 2018 Montroyal Programs
Register NOW for our exciting selection of Programs right here at Montroyal!
Coming after the Spring Break:
Want to help improve Montroyal Grounds & Gardens?
Bright and friendly school grounds not only positively impact the physical and mental well-being of children, but also increase the involvement from parents and students in helping maintain their beautiful outdoor space.
With spring at our doorstep, several parents have expressed interest in helping improve the aesthetics of the school grounds through various activities such as gardening, weeding, picking up litter, etc.
We would like to schedule a walk-through of the school grounds to identify areas of improvement to be scheduled once we know the number of interested parties
Our list will then be shared with the District of NV asking which items the they can take care of (i.e. pruning large trees) and which items we (if any) as volunteers are allowed to handle ourselves.
Please contact us if you would like to actively participate in this initiative by TUESDAY, March 13 or email us with your suggestions and/or comments.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Frosty Fridays are BACK !
The grade 7 classes are raising money for their final farewell. Let’s support them by ordering a yummy treat!

Ordering is now open HERE under the Hot Lunch tab.
Frosty Friday ordering open until SUNDAY March 18th so don't miss out.
Flavours: Cotton candy, chocolate, vanilla & dairy-free orange sorbet.

Want different flavours? Deselect dates then order the second flavour. The majority of students want one flavour and this makes ordering less than 1 minute.
Hot Lunch Ordering
Hot Lunch orders &/or changes are on hold from March 6th till March 19th. This is to allow the Frosty Friday orders and provide our Hot Lunch Coordinators (VOLUNTEERS) a well deserved vacation on Spring Break.
