What is the Annual Giving Campaign?
The Annual Giving Campaign is made up of yearly gifts from parents, faculty and staff, the Board of Trustees, grandparents, alumni, and friends of the school. Each year is a separate drive designed to meet the operating needs of the current year. No donation is too small.

Hot Lunch Program


Please check the school calendar for any dates that your child will not be in need of a school lunch. There will be no reimbursements for any orders past the deadline date .

  • Please keep in mind when ordering and selecting your menu items for the month you must complete the ordering process.

  • Be sure to "CHECK OUT" the order and "PAY INVOICE" and finally click on "PROCEED". Only when you receive an invoice marked as "PAID" will the order be confirmed.

  • Not completing the process will result in an "UNCONFIRMED ORDER". All unconfirmed orders that pass the ordering DEADLINE DATE will not process, which will result in your child not receiving the anticipated lunch item.

The online Hot Lunch Program is only for Kindergarten through 8th grade. For those of you that have not signed up for "Hot Lunch", you can do so at

After you activate your account, you will need to input our school code. You are able to enter a different code for each child if necessary.
  • For grades K-4 use code: 185
  • For grades 5-8 use code: 1a7
  • For sample menus: Sample Menus If you have any questions or need assistance, please go to
  • All payments and orders must take place online. No orders may be dropped off or submitted at school.

For questions, concerns or assistance, please contact Chef Frank at 330-316-7820, or at

We are still in need of items for our silent auction. Thank you to everyone who has already generously made donations. If you have not already contributed, please consider donating an item, making a monetary donation, or soliciting a business or two to help support this most vital event.  What better investment than your child’s education!  We will gladly continue to accept contracts and items that will be listed in the program addendum. Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or need suggestions on how you can best contribute to our auction.

Thank you in advance for your continued support of Great Escapes and looking forward to seeing you on March 10th.
