Christmas Letter

2nd December 2016

 

Dear Parents

 

Our “Christmas time” here at school began this week 1st December with the Christmas tree up in the hall and the post box in the office reception for your child to send their Christmas Cards. Please ensure the name of the child and their class is clearly detailed on the front of the card.

 

The children will be performing in the Nativity at Cropthorne Village Hall on Monday 12th December at 2.00 & 5.30 p.m. Over the last few years the hall has been very full on these occasions and we do need to limit the number of people in the hall on health and safety grounds. So we will be issuing tickets for both events. The 2.00 performance is what we like to call our ‘pushchair performance’ for all those younger siblings & also grandparents, leaving the later performance just for parents.

 

Tickets will initially be restricted to a total of two per family (for each performance) which can be obtained by completing and returning or emailing the slip below to the school office. Extra tickets may be reserved by completing the appropriate line on the form. (These extra tickets will only become available if families do not take up their allocation).

 

Tickets for the times you require will be issued on a first come, first served basis and ticket numbers will correspond to seat numbers. So please make sure you order your tickets as soon as possible.

 

If you or members of your family are unable to use any of your tickets, would you please return them to school as soon as possible, rather than passing them on to friends and neighbours. It will be necessary to bring your tickets with you to performances as they will be checked at the door. Fire regulations prevent us from allowing extra people to stand at the back of the hall. All pushchairs will need to be left outside.

 

Christmas Dinner & Party Afternoon

On Wednesday 14th December there could possibly be a visit from a “very special person” in the afternoon! The children are able to wear Christmas Jumpers on this day. At lunch we will all sit down together for our Christmas Lunch. If you have not already ordered one and your child would like a hot lunch that day, please visit ‘Parentpay’ and book them a dinner on this day. The last day for ordering is this weekend. If your child wants a packed lunch that will be fine.

 

At 11.00 on Friday 16th December the whole school will walk to Cropthorne Church to perform a Christmas Carol Service. All parents are invited and each child will need collecting from this service at 12.00 and taken home.

 

As the winter is now drawing in I thought I would let you know about what happens in the event of the school closing due to bad weather.

 

In the first instance, please check our website. The Radio stations will also be giving out the names of any schools closed due to bad weather in alphabetical order. So please have a radio on and listen if you are in any doubt due to the weather.

    The school closes for the Christmas Holidays after the carol concert on Friday 16th December at 12.00 and reopens on Wednesday 4th January 2017.

     

    Yours sincerely
