This is an end-of-the-year celebration for our sixth grade students and their parents before they graduate from Pierce Downer. The PTA supports the planning and staffing of the event as well as partially funding it.
Approximately twice a month throughout the school year lunch is brought in via outside vendors for all students who have signed up and paid. It is an opportunity for parents to not have to pack a lunch for their child and for their child to receive a hot lunch if they so choose. Parents must sign up for the program at the start of the school year. PTA volunteers manage the distribution of the lunches to the students during the lunch periods.
