Letter from Headteacher 15th January 2019

Dear Parents/Guardians                                                                     

Welcome back and Happy New Year!

ALAW WARD DONATIONS REMINDER: Many many thanks to all those who donated during the Christmas Concerts and participated in the Christmas Jumper Day. We have raised a grant total of £1017.01 towards Alaw Ward, Ysbyty Gwynedd where Mrs Hughes is receiving her treatment which is absolutely fantastic! Thank you everyone!

THE BOOK PEOPLE BOOK FAIR Friday 18th January – : We will be holding a Book People Fair on Friday this week 18th January. Pupils will have the opportunity to view the books on offer on Thursday 17th January and will be able to buy items on Friday the 18th. Books are stickered with prices so everyone will know exactly how much each item costs. If your child would like to buy a book, they can bring money into school on Friday 18th January please (in a marked envelope for Infants please) – they will then have the opportunity during the day to buy their book. The school will receive commission to spend on books and our Year 6 pupils will be helping organise the event. Parents are also welcome to come and view/buy books on Friday 18th January from 2.30pm onwards if you wish (Nursery morning parents can view the books/items at 11.15am on Friday 18th). Pupils will be taking flyers home today – it is also possible to pre-order purchases by ticking the boxes on the forms and enclosing payment.

YEAR 4 RESIDENTIAL STAY IN GLAN LLYN: Please return the necessary forms to school urgently. And ensure that full payment has been made. Thank you.

DINNER MONEY – PARENT PAY: If your child receives school dinners, please ensure that any dinner money owed is paid as soon as possible please. Ideally, meals should be paid for in advance.
