Weekly Update : 26 March


Dear Parents/Carers,

With a shorter week next week, there are just a few updates to make you aware of;

Easter Holidays

The school will close at 3.30pm on Thursday 1st April for the Easter Holiday and will resume on Monday 19th April.  To mark the last day of term and celebrate Easter, we will hold a virtual Easter assembly and we hope that, as we did at Christmas, the pupils will use their daily mile to walk through the village spreading some Easter cheer. (weather permitting)

Parents Night

Thank you to all who took part in our virtual Parents Evening this week for P1-3 pupils.  Appointments for P4-7 pupils will take place on Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th May.  Further information will be sent out after the Easter break with instructions for booking these.

As this is the first time we have used this new system, we would very much welcome feedback on the process.  A very short survey will be issued on Google Classroom on Monday for P1-3 parents to complete and we thank you in advance for completing this.

School Meals

There will be a new menu in place following the school holiday and we will send links for that as soon as it is finalised.  Just a couple of things to point out; printed menus will no longer be available, however, can be accessed on the Highland Council website.  White bread will no longer be available which may impact choices, particularly on sandwich days.

Running Challenge

Normally at this time of year, we would hold our Cross Country Event.  This has not been able to take place due to current restrictions however, Sarah Ross, Active Schools Coordinator will be supporting pupils on Wednesday to take part in the Active Schools running challenge.  Each class will visit the King George on Wednesday to enable pupils who wish to do so, to take part. Please ensure that pupils come to school in PE kit on Wednesday in order to take part.

WOW Certificates

While we are currently not issuing paper WOW certificates to go between home and school, we still love to hear about all of the wonderful things pupils are getting up to when they are not in school.  Please continue to inform class teachers of successes and achievements that children are making so that these can be shared in class and rewarded with house points.

As it is the final week of term next week, there will be no homework issued for any pupils (P4-7 pupils had not fully begun homework routines)

Please continue to be in touch with any questions or queries and thank you again for your ongoing support.
