As you will be aware from recent communications, our very own Mrs Mailer was running not just one race but two races in Disneyland Paris to raise funds for our school.
Along with her family, Mrs Mailer travelled to Disneyland Paris only to run her first race, the 5K, as soon as she arrived. As the races could only take place whilst the park was closed to the general public, her next race, which was the 10K, was run at breakfast time the very next morning before the park opened to the general public.
We are very proud to say that through the generous donations from parents and friends, Mrs Mailer and her family have raised an amazing £235 for our school – THANK YOU!
The children will be holding their Harvest Festival service at St Mary’s Church, Coton-in-the-Elms, tomorrow afternoon.
Children from all classes will be taking part and have been working very hard in preparation….maybe some of you will have heard your child practising the song ‘cauliflowers are fluffy’..?
Parents are welcome to come and join us; the service will start at 2.30pm.
We would like the children to bring a donation of food to celebrate harvest. If we could ask that this is non-perishable as the collection of donations will be sent to our local food bank to help families in our area.
Our very own Mrs Mailer will be taking part in two fun runs this weekend in Disneyland Paris with some of her family members.
In previous years, Mrs Mailer has just been a spectator at these events but this year she has been training hard and will be running in the 5K and 10K races.
The family wanted to use this opportunity to raise monies for a good cause. Mrs Mailer has worked at Coton-in-the-Elms Primary School for many years now and, when they were younger, her daughters (Sarah, Jo and Nicola) all attended the school too; which is why they have chosen our school to be the recipient of their efforts.
If you would like to support Mrs Mailer and her family by donating and raising monies for our school, please click on the link below for the JustGiving page and follow the instructions accordingly.
We wish Mrs Mailer and her family all the best for their runs at the weekend; hopefully they’ll get to see Mickey Mouse and his friends along the way!
Next Tuesday, 25th September, we have our first school bingo of the year.
We are asking for prize donations of not just chocolate but sweets and others treats, e.g. box of biscuits, a stationary set or a small toy. Could you please forward any donations to the school office.
Our bingo nights are a lot of fun and raise fantastic amounts for our FPTA funds, which ultimately every child benefits from.
We hope you can help – thank you.
It was so good to see lots of people yesterday at our Year 1 Parents Meeting, we trust you found this useful as much as we did.
It is important that parents or representatives come along to these meetings when possible as is it another avenue to feedback on what your child is enjoying and also any queries you may have.
One area you asked to know more about is how we teach cursive writing. Below is a link to an interactive PowerPoint document which takes you through the process. A paper copy will be sent home with your child today.
