Lunch Service Information for the 2nd Half of the Year

PTO-facilitated lunch services are our biggest fundraisers during the school year. The success of these programs is directly linked to the contributions of our parent volunteers. Thank you to anyone who has helped to organize or serve lunch! We can't do this without you!

Here's the rundown for lunch during the 2nd half of the year. The Coolidge PTO calendar has been updated to reflect the dates for all lunch services.

Monday Lunch Options

Monday lunch service for the 2nd half of the year will begin on January 22, 2024. You can now choose between two vendors on Mondays:

Midland Park Bagels and Jersey Mike's!

Midland Park Bagels*: zeffy.com/…/1cf60e03-5735-4170-beba-5ae220cdacd8

Jersey Mike's*:  https://www.zeffy.com/en-US/ticketing/803a8fd0-bb00-4f12-874f-ee8e4372f330

The deadline to submit your child's Monday lunch order is 9pm Sunday, January 7th. 

*These transactions are processed through Zeffy.  As you proceed through the checkout, you will notice that an optional gratuity has been added to your order.

Unfortunately, tip amounts are not refundable and we can't assist with accidental tipping charges that are incurred. Please be sure to check your total before submitting your order.
