Hello from Cuckoo Meadow.
We are now issuing extra tickets for the nativity play on Saturday so if you have asked for extra tickets please bring in the money in a named envelope ASAP.
The doors will open at 1.45 on Saturday at Preston Candover Village Hall. Could you please ensure your child comes fully dressed in their costumes having visited the toilet please. Whilst you are waiting in the queue raffle tickets will be available for you to purchase so please have your money ready – there are some wonderful prizes to be won! There will also be refreshments available after the play.
That’s all for now.
Hello from Cuckoo Meadow. From tomorrow if you would like to order photographs you will only be able to do this online.
If you have not yet purchased your two nativity tickets can you please do so by the end of this week as extra tickets will be issued from Monday 4th December.
We are pleased to let you know that the photograph proofs have arrived in pre-school. To ensure that you receive your photographs in time for Christmas please follow the instructions on the order form, if you are not ordering online please ensure that your order is returned to us no later than Wednesday 29th November.
Tickets for the Nativity will go on sale on Monday 27th November at a cost of £6.00 each. Initially you will be able to purchase 2 tickets per family (siblings do not need a ticket), extra tickets for grandparents etc can be requested and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
That’s all for now, have a nice weekend
We will be taking part in Children In Need on Thursday and Friday this week. We will be decorating biscuits and making cakes so if you would like to contribute to this very worthy cause there will be a collection tin available on both days.
Plea for raffle prizes: Other than watching the little ones perform their stage debuts and eat mince pies, the raffle is another highlight of our Nativity celebrations – as well as being a huge fundraiser for the Pre-School. We normally get some fantastic prizes through the hard efforts of the committee and parents.
We would be very grateful if you have any unwanted gifts, toys, chocolates, wine etc. that you may be willing to donate or perhaps you know an organisation, or work for a company that might be able to offer a prize, such as vouchers or an experience? One main prize this year will also be a ‘luxury’ christmas hamper, so if at the very least you might be able to donate a small item, such as a jar of chutney, jam, biscuits, cake etc. that we can add to the hamper, that would be fantastic.
Contributions are being accepted from now, so just bring them into Pre-school at any time.
Welcome back after the half term break we hope you all enjoyed the holiday.
This week we have been celebrating Halloween, we hope the children have enjoyed making ghostly balloons, bats, pumpkins and especially creating pumpkin scones. Next week we will be celebrating bonfire night so if you are going to a bonfire celebration over the weekend don’t forget to post a picture on your child’s Tapestry account.
If your child is starting school next year please make sure you read the flyer which was sent home this week which gives you the information you will need to secure your school place.
The school photographer will be at pre-school on Tuesday 14th November don’t forget to book a slot if your child is not here on a Tuesday.
That’s it for now, enjoy the weekend.
Hello from Cuckoo Meadow. Just a quick reminder that we finish for half term on Friday 13th October for a two week break. We return on Monday 30th October.
Thank you to everyone who has so far made a donation to our voluntary contributions we really appreciate your support and this will help to fund extra curricular activities and provide more craft opportunities for the children to take part in. We would be unable to offer this to the children without your help as the Government funding does not cover these costs.
