Newsletter 2nd December 2022

Dear Parents and Carers,

From December 1st the school has started to feel a little bit Christmassy! Shared areas between classrooms are being decorated, the glitter is starting to make an appearance, children are practicing Christmas songs for the carol concerts and there is excitement in the air. Christmas at Mousehold is always very special. We do try and pace ourselves though so children aren’t exhausted by the time we break up at the end of term! Thank you for bringing in raffle prizes today for the Friends Christmas Raffle. Hampers will be made up, tickets are being sold and all money raised will go directly towards your children.

Christmas Dinner – Wednesday 14th December – Christmas jumpers or hats can be worn. – Please don’t forget to order on WEDUC by 7th December. Thanks

Children can wear Christmas jumpers, hats or anything festive to school this day. The Christmas dinner day is always fun and we encourage lots of children and staff to enjoy the Christmas Dinner together.

George White Junior School Christmas Fayre

There will be a Christmas Fayre at GWJS on Thursday 8th December between 3.20 and 5pm

Last day of term Friday 16th December – non- uniform just for fun.

On the last day of term children can wear non-uniform and/or Christmas themed clothes – just for fun.

Sugar for Shelters Collection

Many thanks for the generous donations. This is being collected on 9th December. We have a lot of bags of sugar and this will help so many people who are struggling at this time of the year. If you still have sugar to donate, please bring it to the school office next week. Thanks
