THE PTA ELF SHELF IS BACK!
Mr Good has very kindly agreed to allow us to run an Elf Shelf within our class bubbles during school on Friday 11 December.
This year, there will be no long queue in the corridor for parents to endure and, even better, we aren’t asking parents to supply items for the Elf Shelf. All you need to do is go to the ‘Shop’ section of the School Money system and purchase an Elf Shelf item for £2.
Your child will then be able to choose and wrap a present (from the selection in their classroom) for whoever they would like (with a limit of TWO Elf Shelf items per child).
Elf Shelf orders must be placed on the School Money system by 11.59pm on Thursday 3 December to allow our Elves time to stack the shelves.
ODD SOCKS DAY
All of the pupils and staff in Meadow Bridge took part in 'Odd Socks Day' as part of Anti-Bullying Week on Monday 16th November.
The range of colours and designs were fantastic – a reminder that we’re to embrace all of our differences and respect what makes each individual in Meadow Bridge unique. We had an enjoyable day of activities to highlight the theme of the week ‘United Against Bullying’.
ANTI-BULLYING WEEK 2020
Meadow Bridge Primary School will be taking part in ‘Anti-Bullying Week’ on Monday 16th – Friday 20th November. The theme for this year is ‘United Against Bullying’ and we look forward to discussing this in our classrooms and your children will have the opportunity to take part in activities that celebrate difference, promote positivity and recognise respect.
PTA TREASURE HUNT
A MESSAGE FROM MR. GOOD
To the important people – the girls and boys of Meadow Bridge
Hello and Welcome!
Whether you’re starting P1, commencing P7 or joining any class in-between, I am so pleased and excited to be welcoming you. We have all really missed seeing you, helping you, working with you, listening to you, laughing with you, looking out for you, celebrating with you, learning with you and watching you grow and develop into the amazing and wonderful children we know!
Whatever year group you are starting, whatever class you are in, whatever teacher and classroom assistant you have, remember this: you are as important as anyone else; you can achieve mighty things; you can be incredible as an individual and as a team member; and, if you put your mind to it, there is no-one in the whole, wide world who can stop you achieving your goal, becoming the person you want to be, and making your dreams come true!
So, make a fresh start, follow the new rules I have put in place to keep everyone safe, and enjoy every minute of your year at Meadow Bridge.
