Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 31st January 2020

31 January 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

If you have volunteered for our storytelling sessions next week, you should have received notification of your day and time. If not, please contact Miss Heron in the school office. Many thanks to all our volunteers; I’m sure it will be a great week.

It is with mixed emotions that I write to you this week to inform you that Mrs Dutta, one of our much-loved teaching assistants, will be leaving us just before the Easter holidays. Mrs Dutta has worked at Kells Lane for the last 9 years. Although we know Mrs Dutta and her family have exciting times ahead, she will be greatly missed by staff and children alike. I am sure you will join me in wishing her the very best of luck in her future adventures.

I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
