Weekly Email - Friday 23rd February

Dear Parents/Carers,

It has been lovely to welcome the children back this week.
Miss Foxe
Huge congratulations to Miss Foxe who is getting married tomorrow! We held a special assembly and the Year 1 children and staff had their own celebration. Miss Foxe will keep her surname but will now be called 'Mrs Foxe'.
Arts Week
The children have thoroughly enjoyed Arts Week where they created clay models and other pieces of art based on Disney films to celebrate 100 years of Disney. We were also treated to a performance from the very talented Mrs Mossop who played a variety of Disney film tunes on her violin and trombone. Thank you very much to Mrs Mossop and also to Mrs Watt who organised the activities this week.
Nursery Open Day
Nursery are holding an Open Day on Tuesday 12th March, if you or anyone you know is interested in a tour please contact the school office.
Family Day
Children will be coming in to school at the normal time (between 8.45 and 8.55), parents are invited in from 9 am. Please sign in and take a visitor sticker over in the Memorial Hall before coming in to school. There will be no Friday reading. Visitors are welcome at any time between 9.00 a.m and 11.00 a.m. and are not expected to stay for the whole 2 hours!
Please ensure you have completed the Google form for Family Day by next Friday, 1st March. Please see the email sent 11th February for the form.
Comic Relief Day-Friday 15th March
We are again supporting the Comic Relief charity and children are invited to wear something red in return for a suggested £1 donation. This can be a costume with a red theme or just normal uniform with something red. 
Please see the link below to donate as this year we are not accepting cash donations.
School Shoes
Please ensure children are wearing black school shoes with their school uniform. Trainers and boots are not acceptable. Please see here for our uniform policy.
Governor Vacancy
One of our school governors, Jessica Svensson, has stepped down from the governing board.  We thank her for her contribution to the school and are now looking for someone to replace her.  This is not an elected position but is open to any parent or other member of the community to apply. The vacancy will be filled following a meeting with a small group of governors who will want to find out more about you and what you can offer the school. The main requirements are an interest in education, a willingness to learn, question and challenge, and a motivation to help make CSG Village School as excellent as it can possibly be.  You also need to be able to commit 2-4 hours a week during term time, ideally some of which will be during the school day.  In return, you get to learn a lot about how the school operates, be involved in important decisions affecting the children and staff and be part of an enthusiastic and committed team. If you are interested, please contact me via either school office or via the school website to discuss or to apply. 
Donna Westall, Chair of Governors
