Watch this wee video of Ava telling her story…and wait for the joke at the end – my kind of laughs…and I think Gnoma would like it, too!
Christmas has crept up on us! Next week sees the infants finalising their nativity play that will be filmed and then given a premier 21st December where you can ‘stream live’ on the blog here. Also on Friday 10th (next Friday) we will be having our Christmas lunch at school and wearing Christmas jumpers alongside many businesses and schools in the MFR area. Please do not go and buy a jumper if your child doesn’t have one – just decorate with a piece of tinsel or add a Christmas badge…or just wear the school jumper. If you have jumpers that are too wee please send them in and we can use. School lunch is exactly the same price and we are not asking you to donate money for wearing the jumpers as we have already asked for poppies and children in need this term. If you want to donate then please do so to MFR Cash for Kids.
Parties: 16th – P6, P6/7 P7; 17th P4, P5; 20th P2, P2/3, P3; 21st P1, P1/2; 22nd ELC
Notice about a Christmas community event – all welcome:
I thank you again for your patience with us and our communication. We have a number of staff absences which means everything runs more slowly but we’re trying to ensure that action takes place for the young people and that learning remains as undisturbed as possible. As ever, we are indebted to staff covering and going beyond duty – everyone here is determined to work hard and achieve as much as possible with and for your children. It’s a real privilege to work with you as families.
As you inevitably start shopping and getting the last few bits and pieces stay calm, friendly and positive as you shop. Bring Smithton cheer wherever you go and let’s keep the reason for the season first and foremost in our minds! Stay safe and protect each other.
