SOME CHANGES TO OUR BOOK CLUB ARRANGEMENTS
From now onwards, the whole school will belong to a single Book Club (Scholastic), rather than having two different clubs run by the separate Key Stages. The school will continue to benefit from the 20% commission which the company offers.
Parents of Key Stage 2 should note that the system for placing orders will be different from the system previously used. Orders should be clearly written on the form provided and must then be returned to Miss Simpson in the school office. Payment by cash will no longer be accepted. Instead, all orders should be accompanied by either a cheque (made payable to ‘Scholastic Ltd’) or a completed slip giving credit/debit card details (as found on the back page of the book club leaflet). We suggest the order form and payment are placed in an envelope. The school office will be sending these cheques or card details directly to the company who will be handling our order. This is the method which has been used by Key Stage 1 parents for quite a while.
The deadline for returning orders for this current leaflet is Monday 5 October.
Alternatively, parents may now go to www.clubs.scholastic.co.uk/shop and add to our School Group (Framlingham-Sir-Robert-Hitchams) order online. Home delivery should be possible using this method, and the school will still benefit from the 20% commission.
PAYING FOR SCHOOL DINNERS
Some parents have been paying for school dinners casually at the Office by cash. Please can we ask that payment is made in an envelope on a Monday. Please CLEARLY mark it with the child’s name, class AND the days you are paying for lunch. The envelope can then be given to the class teacher. If you do not have the correct money, change will be returned via your child. Thank you.
YEAR 6 OPEN DAY AT THOMAS MILLS HIGH SCHOOL
Parents are permitted to sign their Year 6 child out of school during the day of 21 October to take them to look around the High School. Please ensure that you sign them back in when they return.
BOOKS FOR SCHOOLS – THE TIMES
Just to remind you that we are registered with this campaign. Parents can collect tokens until December 6. Please bring them to the school office where we can collate them towards free books for the school. Thank you.
MORRISONS ‘LET IT GROW’ CAMPAIGN
Morrisons are giving away vouchers when you shop between 7 September and 1 November, which we are collecting at school. They enable us to order gardening equipment and products to be used by the pupils at school. Thank you
We have 2 large computer trolleys that are no longer required. If you are interested in having one (for a small donation) please ask at the school office.
