Pizza refund or Donation to St George School Council

Dear parents and guardians,

We hope that you and your families are all staying well during these uncertain times.

We are writing regarding PIZZA refunds for the last session of the school year. We held off on sending this email out until we had certainty as to whether the remaining school year would be cancelled. Now, our goal is to refund your pizza balance money in the most efficient and hassle-free way as possible.

In calculating the amount of money to be refunded, please note that each slice is $2.20, and three pizza Fridays had occurred prior to the COVID school-closing. The cost of the pizza for these three Fridays will be taken off the total amount of money refunded back to you for this session.

We propose two options for your remaining pizza balance:

(1)   E-TRANSFER Refund-  If you choose this option, please let us know by Friday, June 5, 2020.  Note that there is a $1.50 charge applied by the bank for using e-transfer. We will minus the $1.50 charge from the total amount you are due to be refunded.  We will send your pizza refund balance to this email address, unless you indicate in your email (by June 5, 2020) that you would like the e-transfer to be made to another email address. If you require this refund back on an urgent basis or by a different mode, please let us know asap--- we will do our best to accommodate your identified need(s).


(2)   DONATION to St. George School Council- The pizza lunch is a major fundraiser for the St. George School Council (over 50% of all funds raised yearly are from pizza lunches), and we greatly appreciate the school community’s support on this fundraiser. With these funds raised the council purchases items and supports a wide variety of activities in our school: field trips, x-country skiing, mindfulness sessions, special performers/presenters brought to our school, music, books, sports equipment, playground equipment, classroom supplies, chrome books, electronics,  etc.  As a result of potentially refunding money for the remaining pizza sessions, our fundraising numbers will be significantly lower than anticipated this year. Furthermore, we are aware that next year our fundraiser capacity is likely to be significantly lower. Bearing this in mind, please let us know by June 5, 2020, if you would like to donate a portion or all of your remaining pizza balance to the St. George School Council.


This refund process is being conducted by parent volunteers and our goal is to get the refunds back to you as soon as possible. We are restricted by the bank as to how many e-transfers we can get out a week, so please be patient with us as we process your request.  

DON’T FORGET to get back to us by email as to what your preference is for refunds by JUNE 5, 2020


Thanks again for your support of the St. George School Council. Stay well, enjoy the summer, and we look forward to seeing you all in the fall!

Best Regards,

St. George School Council
