PTA News – 9th November
Thank you to everyone who has returned their forms for the school disco. We are looking forward to seeing the children’s dance moves next Wednesday! There will also be a craft room and a film room, so if they need a little break and a rest there will be somewhere they can go to cool down and chill for a while.
And don’t forget it’s a non-school uniform day for the children, whether they are attending the disco or not!
Also a big thank you to everybody who supported this year’s Christmas design sales. All the items have now been delivered and you raised over £250 for the school, which is fantastic!
We have also now set the date for this term’s Bag2School collection, which will be on Monday 10th December. The collection bags will come home in the children’s book bags in the next couple of weeks, so if you making some extra space before Christmas, this is an ideal way of getting rid of unwanted clothing & shoes etc. If you need any additional bags, there will be some in the PTA box in the school office, or simply use a black bin bag! Please bring any donation bags to school at drop off in the morning, as they collection will be during the school day.
Please see our poster for the Winter Wonderland, which will be held after school on Friday 14th December. Those of you who were around last year will know that it was a lovely event with a wonderfully Christmassy feel and we hope that we can do the same again this year. We have now had confirmation that Santa will be visiting St Thomas’ during the Winter Wonderland and we will be sending out time slot forms for reservations to see the main man himself shortly.
Of course, we rely on as much help as we can possibility get to run our events, so would be grateful for any helpers who can help during the set-up, running and clearing up on the day.
Please contact us via Classlist or the PTA email at email@example.com or see any of the committee members on the school run.
Thank you all again for your continued support!

If you work for an organisation with a match funding programme, we would be really grateful
for your support. Last year match funding enabled us to boost our fundraising total by over
20%, so it really does make a difference to the projects we can support for the children.
