We have had another busy week beginning with a visit from The Air Ambulance Charity who led Monday mornings assembly about the work that the charity does. Some children remembered to come to school wearing “ red instead” which resulted in us raising just over £200 for the charity so thank you for all those who contributed.
We have been collecting up all the certificates from the children who completed the local library Summer Reading Challenge. These will be displayed in the library and children’s names published in our newsletter next week. All of these great readers will have a party to celebrate their achievements on 25th and 26th September so well done to them. We do lots to support reading here at St Michael’s with Busters Book Club, Accelerated Reader and our reading café, please do keep this going at home as well
Again our parent workshops have been really well attended. Our parents and carers with children in our nursery will have their workshops on Thursday 26th September, 9-9.30 am and 1-1.30pm so please do attend these.
Now that housekeeping meetings have finished we will be getting ready for our parent consultation meetings. As for the past couple of years these will take place during the day in one of our front meeting rooms with children present. You will be able to log onto parent interview with a log in and book your appointment from today. The dates for these have been on the back of the newsletter since the beginning of term.
On Wednesday we took part in the Deanery Games, an athletics competition that has now become an annual event facilitated at St John Fisher school for all the Catholic Primary schools in the area. St Michaels came third overall and did us proud with great sportsmanship, amazing effort and really good team work. It was also lovely to see some of our ex pupils who helped out from St John Fisher who are doing so well!
For the week beginning 1st October we will be having a “Creative Arts week” with lots of exciting arts going on so watch this space…
Friday 27th September will be our day for St Michaels Day. We will go to mass to commemorate our patron saint, we will have fun activities and cake and coffee after school to coincide with Macmillan Coffee morning which for us will be from 3:30pm. If cakes could be donated on the Friday morning that would be excellent. Children can wear something green on that day as well
