Welcome back from a rather cold but dry half term holiday. This half term is an unusually short one and I think it will be a very busy one!
Comic Relief –Friday March 15th is Red Nose Day. We will be selling red noses in school and the day will be a Mufti Day for children. Some of our year 6 girls are organising our very own Comic Relief Bake Off and have already sent a letter home to you all. Please think about entering as it such a worthy cause and one the children naturally relate to.
Easter Holiday Make Over – We have had a few offers of help so far – so thank you very much to those of you who have returned your slips or spoken to Mrs Green in the office. We have also had some offers of free materials and labour from local businesses but we do need more! Please speak to Mrs Green if you are able to offer any kind of help.
Apple Tree Sand Pit – We are on the lookout for a clever adult to design and make a workable cover for the sand pit outside Apple class room. We would be very grateful for any suggestions!
Parent’s Evenings – Please don’t forget to sign up for Parent’s Evenings next week. I have spent my week with each teacher individually looking at the progress of every child in school. If you would like to make an appointment to see me on either day of the Parent’s Evening Sessions just pop into the office.
Governors – Although we had no response for the meetings we have had several people express an interest in becoming a Governor for the new Academy Trust. Thank you.
PTA – Unfortunately, we have had to cancel tonight’s Quiz due to lack of interest. Please be reminded that we have a Yoga night next Wednesday. You can sign up for Yoga or Head Massages on the board opposite the library. Thank you to those of you who have used Easy Fundraising when shopping on-line – it has already raised £44.95 for the school.
Parking – 2 cars have been reported to the office this week for parking in places that you shouldn’t park! The number plates are HW62 KYK and ME03 USE. I know it is difficult as there is a lack of adequate parking around school but I would hate there to be a serious accident. Please can I remind you that the car park is for staff use only. For safety reasons it should also not be used for pedestrian access into and out of school. Thank goodness spring is almost here and maybe more families will be able to walk to school.
Cross Country Challenge – On Wednesday 13th March we will be hosting the Cowes Cluster Cross Country Challenge for Years 5 and 6. .It begins at 1.40pm for our children and at 2.15pm we will welcome children from Cowes, Gurnard, Lanesend, Queensgate and The Priory for an Inter School Race. More details will follow.
