Newsletter 22/07/2022

St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter

21.7.22

Dear Parents,

I cannot believe this is the last newsletter of the school year it doesn’t seem five minutes ago I was welcoming you back in September.  What a lot has happened this year.  I hope you are all as proud of your children as I am.  They have all grown, developed and learnt about so many things.  They have performed, taken part in sporting activities, represented the school in so many ways.  They have just been fabulous young people.  It is such a pleasure to be part of their lives.

We managed to have a sports day on Friday, until the rain came down.  I know it feels odd that PTA events like the summer fair can happen but not your attendance at sports day.  This is because you are responsible for your children at the summer fair like you would be at any event you chose to take your children to, whilst at sports day we are.  I am still working on a plan to make it possible for you to come to sports.

It was lovely to welcome the new reception children into school on Tuesday.  Despite the heat they all had a great visit.  They start with us on Wednesday 7th September.  On that morning the PTA are offering all the parents of the new children coffee and cake in the hall once you have dropped your children off.

I am looking forward to the summer concert tonight.  The children taking part need to be back about 6.50 for a 7.00 start.  Remember to bring your ticket if you are in the audience as you will not be able to come in without it. The number of covid cases are on the rise so masks are advised.

Tomorrow we are saying good bye to our lovely Year 6.  They are leading our assembly at just after 9.  2 family members are invited to come and watch, I will send out the code word tomorrow.  The number of covid cases are on the rise so masks are advised.  They will also have lunch together and a party 4.30-6pm.

We are also saying goodbye to Miss Campbell and Mrs Taylor who are leaving to take up new jobs.  We will miss them both.

We are saying a temporary good bye to Mrs Shepherd who is due to have her baby very soon.  We cannot wait to meet her baby.

If you still owe dinner money please pay today.

I hope you have a lovely summer.  See you back on Monday 5th September.

Stay happy and healthy

St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter

7.7.22

Dear Parents,

This is going to be a very brief newsletter as for the first time in all my years at St Luke’s I am writing this from my sick bed!!! I am so hoping to be fit and well by next week, seriously not into this being off business.

Tomorrow is the Summer Fair.  I know a lot of fun things are planned and that you will all have a great time.

Tomorrow is also when Ospreys are leading the assembly at just after 9am.  Parents from that class will be sent a code word via the text messaging service just show that text to gain entry.  Hopefully everything will run smoothly but as it is the first time we have used this system please be patient with any glitches.  Kestrels will be leading assembly on Friday 15th.

Next week Year 5&6 are performing their play about Cinderella and Sherlock.  Remember entry is ticket only so do remember your tickets.

Our violin and Viola teacher has spaces see below:

There are spaces available for violin and viola lessons from this September. Lessons take place in school and cost £5.25 per week for a group lesson, with subsidies available for children accessing Free School Meals. Individual lessons are also available. For more information or to arrange a taster lesson, please email Helen – hvparkes@yahoo.co.uk

Do contact Helen soon if you would like your child to have a taster session.

Stay happy and healthy

Dear Parents,

Thank you to all the parents who have shown understanding and patience over the temporary postponement of events.  I am hoping to be able to update you on new procedures next week.

Parents and carers are now able to check their eligibility and apply for Free School Meals instantly via a Parent Portal.

Your child should be bringing home information about the Library Summer Reading Challenge.  The children who take part in this always enjoy it and love sharing with us what they have read.

There are a number of parents who have not paid for their children’s dinners.  Please can you check your account and ensure all debts are settled.  Thank you.

I hope the Y6 children going to Glossopdale enjoy their transition day on Friday and those going to St Philip Howard enjoy theirs next week.

 

Stay happy and healthy
