Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 27th September 2019

27 September 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you so much for helping us to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support today. Thanks to your generosity, and with the help of Kells Lane staff, we have raised an amazing total of £731 for this exceptional charity.

We have quite a few special events coming up between now and Christmas. We will try to give you as much notice as possible and will do our best to avoid changing dates and times of events. Please do check the website regularly as it is updated every Friday and new things are added each week.

The Book Bus will be arriving at school next Tuesday morning. Please feel free to browse through the books before and after school. The children will also get a chance to visit the bus with their teachers during the school day. Apparently, you can expect up to 75% off publisher’s prices, so it could be worth a visit if you are an early Christmas shopper!

Have a great weekend.

 

Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler

Headteacher
