Dear Parents,

I hope you enjoyed your long weekend, it felt very strange coming so soon after the Easter holiday.

Eagles parents I hope you have managed to get tickets for the Jubilee performance at Buxton Opera House 2pm 13th June.  Remember you need to get them from the Opera House not us.

If your child would like to take part in the Glossop Victorian Weekend Parade with school on Saturday 28th May please return the slip as soon as possible.  If we do not have enough expressions of interest we will not be able to take part.

There have been reports of head lice in school.  Please can everyone check their children’s hair regularly.  If you find lice please treat the child and the rest of the family.  You can get rid of them by putting conditioner on their wet hair and using a fine tooth comb, combing out any lice, this needs to be repeated every three days for two weeks. Alternatively, you can get treatments from a chemists, again these need to be repeated.  Having head lice is nothing to be ashamed of most of us and our children have had them at least once.  My son even asked if he could keep some as a pet!

I have noticed that some children are carrying their school reading books in their hands not in a book bag.  Please can children have a book bag.  If the books get wet they start to deteriorate quite quickly and we need to be able to use them for as long as possible.

As the eagle eyed of you will have noticed Mrs Shepherd is pregnant.  We are all very excited to meet her baby when it arrives in the summer.  This also means people are starting to ask who the teachers will be in each class next academic year.  The plan at the moment is (I say at the moment because it is four months away and things can change):

Reception : Mrs Hillier and Mrs Fletcher

Year 1:        Miss Ellwood and Mrs Maniak

Year 2:        Mrs Eltringham and Miss Grandidge

Year 3:        Mrs Clayton / Mr Groarke and Mrs Taylor

Year 4:        Ms Noble and Miss Campbell

Year 5:        Mr Holt, Mrs Harris, Mrs Pierce, Mrs Swift and Mrs Woolleson

Year 6:        Ms Byron and Mrs Day

Please don’t focus on next year with your child.  We have a lot of exciting learning still to do this year.

Stay happy and healthy
