RAISING MONEY – CHRISTMAS JUMPER DAY
On Friday 16th December, we will be raising money for ‘Save the Children.’ Each child in this school can wear a Christmas jumper and bring along £1.
We could be saving a crucial life from dangerous diseases. Please donate and you will bring happiness to others.
‘Save the Children’ is a charity, which raises money and believes every child deserves a future. They give children a healthy life, an opportunity to learn and protection from harm. Pupil Council believes this is a really good cause, so please join in the fun on the 16th of December with your £donation.
Lottie, Jules, Jadon, Andriana and the rest of the Pupil Council
CHRISTMAS POST BOX
The Monkfrith Christmas post box is now available for internal mail! Please make sure all envelopes have a name and class on the front and a surname initial, if more than one child has the same name (Please note we have lots of Alex’s in Reception!). The mail will be delivered once a day by our lovely Y6 helpers.
CONCERT AND NATIVITY TICKETS
Tickets will be coming home in bookbags on Friday so please check for them. If any spare tickets are available, I will let you know in Monday’s newsletter and they will be on a ‘first come, first served basis’.
