Dear parents/ guardians,

County Photos: 

County photos will visit the school this Friday 30th September for individual and class photos. 

Teacher/ Class Information Meetings: 

Teacher / whole class parent information meetings will continue to held this week. Your child's class teacher will be in touch with  date, day and time details. 

Parent Association Meeting/ Partnership in Schools

The first meeting will be held this Thursday evening at 19:30 in  Room 7. We hope to have a great turn out at this meeting.

We are looking for one more parent member and two community members for our ATP: Action Team in Partnership as part of our school participation  in the Partnership Schools Ireland Programme. 

Inhalers:

If your child has an inhaler can you ensure it is in his schoolbag in case he needs to access it throughout the school day or during after-school activities.

Online Safety: 

Barnardos will visit 3rd-6th classes, this  Wednesday  & Thursday, to facilitate online safety workshops.

Communication with Class Teacher:

Please email your child's class teacher directly if you wish to communicate any details about absences, medical appointments, homework, books, etc. 

Classes start at 8:35:

Please note that the school gates open at 8:30 and classes start at 8:35.  We ask that your child is  punctual on a daily basis so that he does not miss his classroom  morning routine. 

Dogs: 

No dogs are allowed on the school grounds. Please do not tie your dog to our neighbours' entrance gates as these gates are operated by control remote and can open at any time. We have some childen who are very sensitive to noise, e.g. dogs barking. We also have some children who are afraid of dogs, therefore we request that dogs are not left unattended at any stage, but have somebody looking after them at all stages outside the school grounds. We thank you for your understanding. 

Croke Park Visit:

Both 6th classes will visit Croke Park this week to do the "Skydium" tour; Skyline and Stadium tours. Bainigí sult as. 

Le gach dea ghuí. 

Kind regards, 

Noel Scully.
