PTA Update – We Need Your Help!
Thank you to all of the staff and parents who attended our virtual PTA Annual General Meeting via Zoom on Wednesday evening, and in particular to those who have volunteered to join the PTA committee for the coming year. We were able to celebrate the thousands of pounds that were raised last year, as well as all of the things that the PTA has already funded or committed to fund this year, such as new play equipment for break and lunchtimes (which was delivered to classes yesterday), some more ‘trim trail’ equipment for the field and extended use of Accelerated Reader to help our children to enjoy and further improve their reading.
However, we still need volunteers to take over as Chairperson and Secretary this year: if you would be willing to help to run the virtual meetings and to give up just a little free time to help to organise events, it would make a massive difference to our children. It’s really not as scary as it sounds and there are lots of staff and experienced committee members on hand to help! Please join our next meeting on Tuesday evening via Zoom (the link is https://us04web.zoom.u/j/5771536144?pwd=RHB3THU2dDlvTmF3Mmo3UTl2Tlhydz09; the password is 6LcBxT).
Other ways that you can support our fundraising efforts are attached with this newsletter – for example, if you shop online, you could raise money and it won’t cost you an extra penny!
