But firstly…..P1-P3 Athletics Club
Parent volunteer Jenna Gray has kindly offered to start an athletics club for P1-P3s at Smithton Playing Field (opposite the school). Initially these fun sessions will run for 7 weeks starting on Wednesday 29th September with a view to continuing pending support from other parents. Parents must book on the High Life Highland booking system at https://booking.highlifehighland.com Code 004249CULL. It is not a drop-in session. You must book in advance. These sessions are open to all pupils in P1-P3 at Smithton Primary on the following dates at 3.30-4.15pm: 29th September, 6th October, 27th October, 3rd November, 10th November, 17th November, 24th November. No cost. Please ensure your child is wearing suitable clothing, warm layers, jacket and appropriate footwear for this outdoor activity. We are looking for additional parent helpers to support this club so please contact Lynne Fraser if you are available. Contact Lynne Fraser, Active Schools Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Mob: 07795825603
Staff are keen to have a parent/teacher virtual meeting with you before the October holidays. It will be an opportunity to highlight what has been working well, how your child has been working at home and what you think the next steps are. While it is frustrating that we can’t yet have face to face meetings we are hoping that this will be changed as the year goes on. In the meantime, it is an important part of your child’s education that parents and teacher communicate so we hope that you will be able to join us online or by phone call.
The meeting will last no more than ten minutes, similar to having our usual face to face meetings. As you will not be called into school for the meeting your child’s teacher will allocate a date and time. If this is not suitable please reply directly to your child’s teacher.
If you would prefer a telephone call then please let your child’s teacher know. Please complete the survey by Sunday 26th September at 6pm so we can sort out the timetable for the school. School parents will be notified with a google link through Dojo. Please use this link to let us know if you would like a meeting
