Newsletter 2nd March 2018

Dear parents and carers,

Snow Days

Thank you for your understanding last week.  It is always difficult making the call about closure, but I hope that the early notice made it slightly easier to make the necessary arrangements.  Willow Class parent consultations for last Friday will be rerun this coming Friday.

World Book Day

We managed to enjoy several activities together, but the book swap will now take place this coming Thursday.  If you have any books you can send in, please do so over the next few days.  We hope to have enough books for every child to take something home with them.

Ash Class Assembly

Family and friends are warmly invited to hear what Ash Class have been learning this term.  They will be presenting in the school hall at 2.30pm on Friday 9th March.  Do come and support them.

Quiz Night – Saturday 10th March

We are now getting ready for our Quiz Night on the 10th March.  There are limited places available and tickets have been selling well, so don’t miss out! This is a great evening, with enjoyable brain teasers, delicious food and drink and much laughter. Invite family and friends to form a team (4-8 people) or ask to be placed in one. To book tickets contact drsouthsfriends@gmail.com.  The cost is £14.00, which includes a delicious meal.  The more tickets we sell the more money we raise for the school so do come along if you are able.  We would also be grateful of any offers of food for this event.  Please let us know if you are able to help with providing a lasagne, sausage casserole or a pudding or can help with setting up, serving or clearing up on the night.  Thank you!

Pupil News

We today say goodbye to Amelia (Willow) who is moving away from the area.  We wish her and her family well.

Our Christian Value for the term is Compassion.  What can your child tell you about caring for vulnerable people?
