Infant - Weekly Email

Dear Parents/Carers,
Christmas Shows: The children were brilliant in their Christmas shows and we are so proud of each and every one of them! Thank you everybody who helped to make these events so special. If you have taken any pictures or videos of the productions please can we remind you not to post them on social media sites. The postponed sibling friendly KS1 production will be on Monday 18th December at 9.15am.
Christmas jumper day: Everyone looked very festive in their Christmas jumpers today. The Infant school raised over £130.00 for this worthwhile cause.
Interactive Boards: Years 1 and 2 have had new interactive boards fitted in their classrooms which caused great excitement amongst staff and children. Thank you to the PTA who have provided the funding for these boards.
Year 1 Milestones Museum Trip: What a fantastic day the children have had learning all about toys from the past and comparing them with the toys of today. Thank you to all the parents who helped with the trip.
Walk on Wednesday: Well done to Diamond and Amethyst classes who won our Walk on Wednesday competition this week with 100% of children in these classes walking. All of the other classes just had one child who did not walk. It would be great if this could continue every day as these percentages show that walking is possible for everyone!
Christmas parties: The children are looking forward to the Christmas parties on Monday and can wear their party clothes to school. Please make sure they are still dressed warmly and appropriately (no jewellery or high heeled shoes).
Termly School Newsletter: please find the newsletter attached.

Christmas Productions:

We hope you're all enjoying the Christmas Productions, with one more to go on Monday.  There's still time to order Photos and DVDs and buy a Raffle Ticket or several!  We have some wonderful prizes to be won with the draw being made following Monday's performance and the PTA will notify the winners... Good Luck!


Old or Foreign Coins:

If you're jetting overseas this Christmas, please remember that the PTA collects all foreign currency, present and past, for turning into valuable funds.  Please bring in any foreign coins or notes plus check your pockets, sofas and the man-drawer for any old £1 coins!  The collection bucket is in the office.


Upcoming PTA Events in January:

During the week of 15th January, we will be asking all the children in each Year Group to take it turns to donate ONE toy to the PTA.  More information will be sent out in January, but we wanted to give you a chance to source any unwanted, good quality toys.  Please bear us in mind if you're having a clear-out over Christmas!  We shall also be asking for donations of any good quality dress-up costumes - World Book Day will be just around the corner and it might be an idea to donate any unwanted costumes!


Breakfast Cafe:

Friday 26th January is the date of our next Breakfast Cafe - please put the date in the diary.


Just Giving:

As you may already be aware we joined JustGiving the fundraising platform as a charity last year. We raised an amazing amount - over £4,000 to be spent on IT equipment for the school for a specific campaign.
We just wanted to send a reminder to all the parents who partake in events, or just want to create a page to raise money for the school, that it’s very simple to do on all year round.
Just choose your event and select Chalfont St Giles School as the charity. Any amount raised will be paid directly to us and include additional GiftAid if applicable which is almost 20% on your fundraising!! 
This is a very simple and effective way to fundraise and means a huge amount to the school and PTA. Especially if you are part of a corporate matching scheme which your page may be eligible for. Double the benefit !
So next time you're running a 5k or Swimming the Channel or jumping out of a plane and people might give you a few pounds, please consider us as your chosen charity it is so simple to do :)


And Finally...

... Thank you to everyone who has supported the PTA so far during this last Term.  We greatly appreciate all your support and help - and especially the Mums and Dads who have given their time to help us at various events.  We look forward to your continued contributions in 2018!
