25th February Newsletter 14

Dear Parents,

I very much hope that you all enjoyed a relaxing half term holiday. It is wonderful to see slightly longer days and some sunshine. A sign of things to come.

Parents Evening
We are holding parent evenings on Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th March between 4pm and 7.30pm. If you still need to book an appointment to see your child’s class teacher please contact the school office, where staff will be happy to help.

Window Installation
We have been extremely fortunate that the Local Authority have agreed to replace classroom windows in school. The contractors are doing a wonderful job and completed a huge amount of work over half term. They are expecting to complete the installation at the end of this week. This work will mean that some classes will need to re-locate for a day, however we are striving to minimise any inconvenience.

Carnival Meeting
Unfortunately I will need to post-pone the meeting due to be held on Monday 3rd March due to unforeseen circumstances. Please could we re-organise this for Monday 17th March at 2.30pm. Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Active Kids
Sainbury’s have launched their annual Active Kids scheme. Vouchers may be brought to the collection point at the school office. In previous years we have been delighted with both the parental response and the additional resources these schemes have brought.

Nestle Box Tops
Nestle ‘books for schools scheme’ comes to an end at the end of March 2014. Over the past few years we have received a large variety of books for the school library. If you have any
Box Top tokens we would be very grateful to receive them by 21st March at the latest.
The collection box is located by the school office. Many thanks

Head Lice
I wish to inform you that there have been one or two cases of head lice. We ask that parents be extra vigilant and check their children’s hair regularly. The treatment that is recommended by the school nurse is wet combing. Hair should be washed first and then plenty of conditioner applied. Without washing off the conditioner, comb the hair from root to tip with a detection comb. Continue combing until the comb comes through lice free. This may take 10 minutes. This treatment should be repeated every 3 to 4 days for 2 weeks in order to remove newly hatched lice.

Please feel welcome to speak to staff if you have any concerns or issues regarding your child.

Yours sincerely

L.Birch
