Need To Know 9th December 2017
What’s going on next week?
Need to know:
- Some parents have not yet contributed their £10 per child (max £20) towards the cost of swimming this term. Remember, we run this at a loss, so contributions are essential to keep this going at the school. You can pay online or at the school office.
- Christmas dinner is on Thursday.
- We finish next Friday at 1:30pm. Please let me know if you have a problem with this. firstname.lastname@example.org
ALL KS2 PARENTS – Have you filled in the arrangements for you child? Read here.
We are looking forward to sharing our KS2 Carol Service with you on Thursday 14th December at 6pm at St Peter’s Church. Please remember to bring your tickets along with you to this festive event. We are delighted that everyone has taken up our two ticket per KS2 family offer, it does however mean that we have no surplus tickets to put into the hat for reallocation to those families who said that they would like to be entered into the draw for extra tickets. All tickets have now been allocated and should be finding their way home to you.
