Summer Fair – Saturday 16th June 12-3pm
The summer fair is fast approaching. As FOMS have agreed to match fund a £10,000 grant that was recently awarded to the school to build an incredible sensory trail for our children, the Summer Fair is a big push for FOMS to raise the money for the match funding. The FOMS committee are of course committed to organising a great event but we still need help from the wider parent and carer community now more than ever to make the Summer Fair a huge success. Below are some dates and call outs for help in the run up to the fair (THANK YOU!):
1. There will be two ‘Working Coffee Mornings’ to prepare for the fair on Friday 8th June and Friday 15th June. We very much hope you can come along.
2. Set up for the Fair – Friday Night 15th June, and early Saturday morning on the 16th. We will be at school from 8am to set up and need as many people as possible that morning.
3. Fair clean up after 3pm on Saturday 16th June.
4. We will need many people to run the stalls on the day. If you can set aside one hour of your time during the fair the run a stall, please do! Stall sign-up sheets will go out to each class of parents approximately 2 weeks before the fair, but we may have more stalls then there are classes so the more parents/carers/grandparents we have, the better!
Donations for Summer Fair
FOMS will be looking for the following donations for the Summer Fair to help support a number of different stalls on the day. Please can you begin to gather these items now in preparation:
1. Soft Toys for the Teddy Tombola
2. Jars of pre-wrapped sweets for the Sweetie Tombola
3. Toys for our Toy Sale Stall (no books please)
BBQ Donation Wanted!
FOMS are looking for a BBQ for the Summer Fair. If anyone has an old one they are happy to part with, we would be very grateful! Please email email@example.com if you can help.
BBQ Meat Wanted
Last year, someone was able to donate the meat for our BBQ which otherwise would have been a big expense. Unfortunately, this has not been possible again this year. If anyone can help source meat and pittas for the BBQ at the Summer Fair at a discounted rate, please get in touch!
As always, if you would like to get in touch with FOMS for any reason, especially if you would like to find out ways to get more involved in planning the Summer Fair, please either talk to your class reps, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
POP UP BOOK SHOP
We are going to run another Pop-up Book Shop. This will run from Tuesday to Friday from 3.30-4.00 p.m. in the week beginning 11th June. We would love to have contributions of books that are no longer being read, but that are in good condition. Please send books in after the half-term break. Any funds raised will go towards purchasing weatherproof cushions for the outside book boxes. Thank you for your support.
ROYAL DRESS UP DAY-Friday 18th May
To mark the occasion of the Royal wedding on Saturday, children can come to school dressed in their best clothes. Please make sure that includes sensible shoes/trainers. Top hats and tiaras are optional!
MONKFRITH FOOTBALL TEAM
Huge congratulations to the Monkfrith Football team. They have won their league and are now in the league final against St Mary’s EN4.
This will take place on Friday 18th May, at Coppetts Wood Primary School, 4pm KO.

Good luck team!

BARNET MUSIC FESTIVAL-TICKET UPDATE
If your child is performing with the choir at this year’s Barnet Music Festival and you wish to buy additional tickets, you need to buy them directly from the Arts Depot. They will be on sale from Tuesday 22nd May. Tickets already ordered through the school will be given out before the half-term break.

I need two parent volunteers just to accompany the choir to the Arts Depot on the day by bus. We would need to leave school at 11.45 a.m. Once we are at the Arts Depot parents are free to leave. If you would like to help, please let me know. Thank you.
