Dear Parents / Carers,
Thank you to all of you for support Jeans for Genes last Friday.
Alston raised £357 and this is a phenomenal amount that will help the charity. The money raised funds a range of initiatives that improves the quality of life of children and families affected by genetic disorders. The children certainly enjoyed wearing their jeans and seeing their
teachers looking so casual! Thank you one again and we look forward to another charity event.
Just a reminder to you all to make sure that your child wears a coat for school especially now as the days are getting colder. Please make sure that your child’s name and class are written inside on the label.
We would also like to thank all those parents who are making sure that their child completes their homework. Your support is essential.
