NEWS HIGHLIGHTS

Perogies, pierogis

The Gr. 1-3 class is making pierogis on Monday Jan. 28! North Point mom and owner of Jenny’s Delectables, Jenny Kohut, is graciously hosting us to explore UKRAINIAN cuisine at her shop. Jenny’s boys Axton (gr. 2) and Caden (gr. 4) are both students at North Point.

30% of proceeds come back to North Point School!!!

In addition to the cooking class, Jen has graciously offered to send a free pack of 12 perogies home with every NP family. Families will be able to purchase more bags, with 30% of the proceeds from those sales donated back to North Point School!

Watch for the pierogis and an order form listing all of products from Jenny’s Delectables coming home with your boys this week. It would be great if you could reach out to family and friends to support this fundraiser. Orders will be accepted until Friday Feb 8 and can be returned to the main office. Perogies will be delivered to the school the following week.

Now if we can only figure out the correct spelling of pierogis…!
