PTA News - 16th November 2018


Plans are well underway for our Christmas Fair on Sunday 25th November (12pm - 3pm). Stalls have been allocated to each year group and they will be asking for your help. If you haven't already offered to help for an hour or so, please do, it really does help to spread the load. We have lots of fun stalls and some fantastic external stalls (many are parents of the school, so please do support them if you can!)
This will be one of the main attractions at the fair this year. We have most of the decorations, but can always use more. If you have any spare decorations, including Christmas trees and lights, can you please label them and leave them in the PTA area. Thank you. We would also love any Christmas music to be played in each of the rooms. 
Raffle tickets for our main Christmas Hamper raffle have gone into the book bags. Please complete and post stubs and money into the PTA post box in Court House. You could win one of 7 amazing Christmas hampers—created and designed by the class reps! Additional tickets will be available in the PTA area from Monday and we will be selling them every day next week. 
Thank you to everyone who bought in a gift for our Secret Gift Room today and thank you for your generosity! Next Friday, the 23rd is ‘Full Mufti Day’ in exchange for a bottle for our bottle tombola stall. Can you please give your bottle to one of the Class reps at the gate on Holly Lane or hand in to the reps by the PTA shed. Thanks for your support!  
Is it time to clear out your unwanted clothes and make space for Christmas? The first of our two annual bags 2 school collections will take place next Monday, the 19th November. Can you please drop your bags in front of Court House by 9am on Monday. If you would prefer, we will be at the school THIS SATURDAY between 12-2pm and can collect them from you then. Last year Bags 2 School raised over £500 for the school, which goes a very long way!
Thank you to everyone who has submitted their Christmas Card designs already. The proofs have been sent home with your child, and if you would like to place an order, please note that the timescales from the card company are very tight. We will need your orders to be placed on Monday of next week please!
