Dates For Your Diary
24th Sept 2017 New Reception Party
2nd October 2017 PTA AGM - 6.30pm in the School Hall
Recent PTA Project Funding
2017/18 Fundraising Targets
The PTA will be speaking to Mrs Pym at the AGM in September to decide on a new fundraising target for the 2017/18 academic year. If you have any suggestions, we'd love to hear them, so please get in touch.
During the 2016/17 academic year the PTA has donated just over £7000 to school. This money has been put towards funding the all school theatre trip to watch George's Marvellous Medicine, a £1000 donation to COOL week in May, new Spanish resources for Key Stage 2, the minibus rental and a contribution to the Year 6 Leavers party.
Without PTA donations, these are things that School couldn't afford to provide to for our children, so Thank You for all your support over the past year.
The PTA AGM will be held at 6.30pm on Monday 2nd October in the School Hall. Please do come along if you can.
Upcoming PTA Events
The PTA are organising a Welcome To School party for the new Reception children on Sunday 24th September from 2-4pm at Langho and Billington Community Centre. The children will be entertained by Harriet Gore from Rock and Learn, whilst parents can chat over a coffee, and then there will be party tea and of course a party bag.
The cost will be £5 per child and further details will be sent out during the first week of school.
Help Us Raise Funds
Below are a few of the many ways you can help the PTA raise funds:
The PTA have signed up with Stamptastic's PTA scheme, so we now get up to 30% donations on any purchases. Stamptastic provide personalised name stamps that can be used on fabric, wood, metal and some plastics - and don't come off in the wash - so are perfect for labelling school uniforms and possessions.
If you dread sewing name labels into unifom or are frustrated with iron in options, this may be the product for you.
If you decide to buy, please use the code BB68AB in the PTA code box when placing your order online. We've raised £13.50 so far from a handful of orders, but hopefully we can improve this next school year.
Sign up to the Easy Fundraising website and raise money for the PTA whilst doing your normal online shopping.
We currently have 49 members and have raised just over £849!!

Paper and Cardboard Skips
