What slays the hunger dragons and brings smiles to the faces of children and parents alike? FUN LUNCH!!! 

Yes, dear families, Fun Lunch is returning to Whittier and you have a short window of opportunity to take advantage of the two offerings for the rest of this year. Here’s what you do ASAP. 

Starting on Monday, 04/11 through Monday, 04/18, you must hurry over to our ordering site and select the delectable morsels your little ones would like to have for lunch. The two dates are 04/29 and 05/13. Do not wait because once the ordering window closes, no further changes or new orders can be accommodated.

Here are the specifics:
1. Log on to http://www.Boonli.com and create a new account (or access your former account). The access code for Whittier is: WES338.
2. Update your child’s/children’s home room teacher and grade level.
3. Order from the choices on both April 29th and May 13th for each of your children. We are pleased to offer Potbelly’s sandwiches and sides for both lunches this year. 
4. Check out COMPLETELY including with payment to finalize your order. Sadly, orders left in the Boonli carts cannot be counted. Please double-check this and insure your payment has been accepted before logging out. 

Easy peasy! If you have any questions, please email Stacy at stacyklepper17@gmail.com or Karrie at karrie313@gmail.com
