Every year, 8th grade Executive Cabinet runs a program called Food for Funds in all Glencoe schools. We are pleased to announce the continuation of this program. All you need to do is shop at Grand Food Centers in Glencoe or Winnetka and bring your receipts to one of the three schools' collection containers in the main office. The Grand Food Center will then graciously donate 3% of the total amount we collect. Please note all 2013 receipts must be turned in before we head to winter break on December 20, 2013. Thank you!
Although registration for the Second Session (December 1 through February 28) has closed, it is still possible to order hot lunch. Please allow approximately 2 weeks for orders to be processed. Please click here to begin the ordering process. If you have any questions, please email Kiddos (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call 773-218-4111.
You can also click on the lunch tab on the PTO website (http://www.glencoepto.org/lunch-menu.php) above for more information and directions to export your lunch calendar to your personal calendar.
