A huge thank you to Glencoe staff and our own amazing staff who have given up family life to ensure P7s had an amazing week – both last week and this as we have so many P7s this year. I can’t thank our own staff enough for what they have done and also for the staff back at school who have mucked in to keep the rest of the school going with fewer staff.
While P7s have been pushing their boundaries the rest of the school have been getting stuck into learning in different ways. We’re delighted that each class has a learning rep and their first main piece of work with Mr Lyon was looking at how they can promote reading across the school. Great ideas like having a book review of the month in assembly, different staff coming to classes to read to them and many more great ideas to build up enthusiasm for reading for pleasure.
We’re also really looking forward to our open afternoon next Wednesday 21st from 2pm – 3pm. Come and see what we are getting up to! Don’t be shy. Remember if you can’t come but would like to engage with us we’ll send you a googlemeet link and a P7 ambassador will go around your child’s class and let you drop in. Hopefully by now you will have received the survey for your parent/teacher more formal contact for October. In the early evening of 21st at 6pm remember to come back to the school for coffee and cake to meet with the Parent Council and hear what is going to be happening this year.
Another annual event we want to bring back is the Walk in the Woods on the last day of term. If you can, please keep the day free to come for a relaxed and enjoyable walk with your child’s class. Buggies are welcome with wee brothers and sisters but please keep the pet dog at home. More details to follow.
Looking forward to seeing everyone back at school on Tuesday. Enjoy your weekend and however you reflect on Monday let’s all be agreed that life is precious and we need to make the most of every moment in time.
