PTA Newsletter Summer 2017

Dear all,

With the end of yet another school year looming we will soon be saying a fond farewell to both Mrs King and Miss Stevens. As previously stated they have both been great servants to Blackboys School and as such will be sorely missed. In order to give them a proper send-off we start off with Mrs King’s tea party booked in for 2:30pm on Friday 14th July.  The children have already planned some exciting entertainment so we encourage as many of you to attend as possible. Could I also please ask for you to dust off the old oven gloves and start baking some cupcakes in the class house colours as these will be consumed during the ‘live performance’.

The second event is the school cup assembly on the 20th July. Miss Stevens has of course been an integral part in so many aspects of Blackboys School, not least as much in our children’s physical education and regularly organising the ever popular sports day. The assembly will be our opportunity to thank her again before she moves on to her new school. We do of course wish her and Mrs King all the very best in future pursuits!!!

Before I sign off for the summer I would just like to say a massive thank you to everyone again for their hard work in assisting with the Summer Fayre. It was an extremely hot day but everyone had a fab time and I’m pleased to announce that we successfully managed to raise just over £1,300. As most of you already know the government continues to squeeze the budget concerning our children’s education.  This means that we at PTA will be doing all we can next year to support Blackboys School in places where finances will inevitably fall short. This means bigger and better events but in order to achieve this we need your help. Therefore, if you wish to become a part of the PTA or merely support it through ideas and proposals then by all means drop either Jemma or I an email at Don’t forget that our new term PTA meeting is being held on Wednesday 20th September at 7:45pm. Venue TBC.

Thanks again for all your support.

Blackboys PTA.
