Thank you so much to everyone that came to our PTA meeting the other week. It was brilliant to have so many people there, including some new faces. We’ve planned some great events for this term and hope to see you at as many of these as possible.
To kick start everything, we’ll be celebrating National Baking Week and what better way to do this than a bake sale?! If you are able to support this in any way we would hugely appreciate it please, whether that’s baking (or donating) some tasty treats or coming along and purchasing some of them, for a small price. The sale will be held in the school playground at 15:15, on Thursday 19th October. Don’t forget to bring some change.
We’re also really excited to announce the return of the All Hallows Eve Party. This will be held at 18:00 – 19:00 on Thursday 26th October, at the village hall. More information is to come, but there will be all sorts of tricks, treats, surprises and games! This is open to older and younger siblings, as well as all of the children in the village. Come dressed to impress in your most terrifying and spooktacular outfits!!
To continue with the spooky theme, we’ll be holding the first film night of the year on Friday 20th October. This will be held in the school hall, starting at 18:00. Film choices will go out for the children to vote on, and the chosen film will be announced in an upcoming newsletter. There will be juice and plenty of popcorn for the small cost of £3.50 per child or £5 for siblings. Children are encouraged to come in the PJs, with a teddy to snuggle with.
October is going to be a busy month but we’ll be ready to get going again, after half term, with our November social. We’ll have the fantastic, York based cover band, Electric Sheep, playing hits from the 60s through to the 90s. There will also be a bar, quiz, games and to end the evening, a promise auction. To make this night a success, we need your help please? Are you able to offer a service that you would happily provide, free of charge, to raise money for the school? Do you own something that could be loaned out or have expertise in a certain field which you could provide to someone? If so, please let us know by contacting the school office. The promises that are kindly offered will be auctioned off to the highest bidder at the end of the evening.
If you have any ideas that you would like to share with us, about ways we can fundraise for school, get parents engaged and include the village community please feel free to email email@example.com.
We are hoping to raise as much money as possible, with all of our events this year, to treat the children at the end of the school year.
