We have had a smooth start to the year and the children are all settled back into class and working hard. Primary 6 are well into planning their Scots’ Night and the children in the rest of the school are busy learning their Scots verse in preparation.
Opportunities to share your child’s learning
The latest information on reporting to parents and sharing the learning journey with your child is all on the website. We are hoping as many parents as possible can come along to the house coffee mornings on Wednesdays for the next four weeks.
Raising Children with Confidence
We have organised another course on Raising Children with Confidence. Parents who attended the previous two courses gave us very positive feedback. This course is being offered on a Wednesday pm in school, initially to nursery and primary one parents, but if there is room we are happy to welcome parents from any stage. If you are interested please ask the school office for the course details and form.
Head Lice !
We have unfortunately had a number of cases of head lice already this term. It would be much appreciated if all parents could check heads regularly to prevent this becoming a bigger problem. Advice is available from pharmacies but the most effective method is to comb hair through with a nit comb a couple of times a week and treat if any live lice are found.
We are very short of small boys’ trousers, small skirts or pinafores, tights and socks for our youngest children when we need to do a quick change. Any donation of clothes grown out of would be much appreciated.
Thank you to parents who have signed back up to Parentmail. We now have over 80% of parents on the system. If you have not yet done so, or are experiencing difficulties with the system, please let Mrs Reid know and she will try her best to help out.
It would greatly help us and the office staff, if parents could check their child has all the things they require for the day with them ; PE kits, lunch, reading books and instruments etc. We do appreciate that on occasions things do get forgotten but it will save us a lot of time re-uniting children with their possessions if they are organised first thing.
