AutumnTerm 2017 second half
Brenda and¬†Gerry have asked me to pass on their thanks for all the cards and words of support. Gerry is having treatment before his operation so he will not be back for quite some time. Thank you to the people who have stepped up to keep our children safe by manning the patrol. We still have not covered all of the slots each week so if you could spare 30 minutes either before or after school it would mean that we have the roads covered all the time.¬†We have had visits from both Councillor Wagland and the local MP, Alex Burghart. ¬†They are both in agreement that the site needs extra support, however, any changes to speed or to the road layout could take a long time. Also as our crossing patrol personnel are on sick leave we will not get any replacements. I will keep you informed about any updates. In the meantime if you can try to park safely and not use either the lay¬†by or the disabled spaces on the single yellow line outside the Alms Houses it would really help¬†our children.
We have now moved to winter uniform. This means that the girls are in grey pinafore dresses or skirts instead of gingham dresses. Just a reminder that coats should be either plain black or plain navy blue and not have any emblems on them. The children’s shoes should be black and not trainers.¬†The school also has a strict no jewellery policy¬†¬†which means that¬†earrings¬†are not allowed. If your child has¬†pierced¬†ears please make sure that they remove earrings before coming into school.
Light Up the Night
It is Light Up The Night tomorrow evening. If your child is in year 2-6 then there are still some places left for a free fun evening.
On Friday we have our firework display. The tickets are nearly sold out. If you would like to attend then you will have to be quick and buy them through the School Association‚Äôs new online payment system:¬†buytickets.at/spswsa
We have been asked by the Beeches Nursing Home to design Christmas cards that they can sell. They will give a prize to the designs that are chosen. If you would like to enter just create your design on an A4 sheet of paper.¬† There is a collecting box in the foyer.
We have the Infant Christmas productions on Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 December, both at 1.45pm. ¬†Further¬†information¬†will be sent out about how to get the tickets for the productions. Due to the numbers, there will only be two tickets per family.
