Last week of 2017!

Dear Families,
 
I can not believe that we are already starting the last week of school for 2017! I can honestly say that this year has really flown by so quickly. It has been a very busy but enjoyable year. My apologies for this very long email… please can you read to the very end! These are a few reminders for this week:
 
Tomorrow, Monday 11th of December, is the annual Transition Day where students get to meet their teachers and classes for 2018. It is an exciting day and I am sure everyone will enjoy this special time.
 
On Tuesday the 12th of December the Year 3’s will be having a class party to celebrate our year together. 
 
We have decided, this year, for girls to bring in a sweet plate and for boys to bring in a savoury plate of food. On this day you will not need to provide lunch for your child (only recess as usual). Please can each student provide their own “plate” or they can use their lunch container. The party will begin at 12noon in case any parents would like to drop off their plate of food at this time. 
 
I hope that your child can participate and I am looking forward to celebrating a wonderful year in our classroom.
 
The end of year school concert will also be held on Tuesday and students have been singing and dancing up a storm so that they can put on a fantastic show. This year the concert is themed I Feel Good. The concert will commence at 5.30pm and students should be in their classrooms by 5pm. All Year 3 students will be performing “Firework” by Katy Perry. 
 
To make the performance extra special we would like the students to dress in black shorts with a shirt that is one of the colours of the rainbow – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo or violet.
 
I have been sending home students work over the last few days but please can I ask students to bring in an extra bag or packet tomorrow as I will start sending home their books and some students may need the extra space.
 
On Thursday I will allow students, if they wish, to bring a game to school as it is the last day of the school year.
 
I wanted to take this opportunity to wish all the students and parents from Room 37 who will be leaving Aubin Grove at the end of this year my sincere best wishes for this next chapter at your new schools. I am certain that you will thrive and settle in to your new environment but you will also be missed by your peers. 
 
I would also like to thank all of the parents from Room 37 for all your support, care and kindness this year. I have so enjoyed getting to know your children and it has been such a blessing seeing them mature, develop and grow over the year. I hope that they have enjoyed their year as much as I have!
 
If you have an further queries please don’t hesitate to contact myself or Jodie. Our class blog will no longer be available from next week.
Thank you, again, and have a truly amazing holiday and festive season. Best wishes for 2018!
Kind regards
Sandy

Salvation Army appeal

Dear Parents,

It is already that time of year again, where we have partnered up with The Salvation Army Christmas Appeal. We have a box in our classroom where you can bring in non-perishable food items and groceries to give to those who are doing it tough in our community.

Examples of food we are looking for include: tinned fruit or veg, tinned spaghetti or baked beans, treats, beverages such as long-life milk, coffee, tea, milo etc, cereals and carbohydrates including rice, pasta, rice sauces and even some Christmas extras including bonbons, candy stockings or puddings.

The boxes will be picked up on the 12th December, so we have a couple of weeks to fill them up. Your donations would be greatly appreciated!

Library books to be returned

Dear Parents,

All library books need to be returned this week. Room 37 has Library on Wednesday so please make sure all books are returned and fines are paid.

Kind regards

Aubin Grove Primary School 2018

Dear Parents

If you are not returning to Aubin Grove next year, can I ask that you please let me, or the Front Office, know asap. Our school expects a drop in student enrolments for next year, owing to the establishment of Honeywood PS, so in order to plan for the number of teachers and classrooms required, it is essential that we have the most accurate information possible. 

 

Thank you in anticipation.

School Attendance

Hello families,

We have an amazing attendance record at AGPS. However, if your child is off school for any reason, please send me a quick email or call the office to advise of their absence. This is now a whole school initiative to ensure that our attendance is accurately documented.

Your co-operation on this is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Welcome back!

Welcome back!

I can’t believe how fast this year has flown by and that we only have one term left until the end of our year together.

A few important details:

Year 3 Excursion
Notes about our Year 3 school excursion were sent home today. It is going to be a really fast turn around, as the excursion is next Friday (20th October). This means that notes must be signed and returned with money/online payment as soon as possible and no later than Tuesday 17th October. It is a whole day excursion in which we will be visiting the Perth Mint, The Bell Tower, Elizabeth Quay, the Wadjuk Walking trail and Langley Park. We are aiming to arrive back to school by 2:50pm but please be aware that due to traffic, we may run a little behind schedule. More information regarding lunch/recess, etc. can be found on the note, otherwise if you have any further questions please feel free to come and see me. It’s going to be a fun and informative day!

Year 3 Parents
Could you please advise me personally, or via email if you are available to be a Parent helper for our HASS Incursion next Week Friday. I am needing 2 Parent helpers for our class. If I have more than 2 volunteers then I will draw the names out of a hat. If you could let me know by the end of Wednesday. Thank you!

‘R U OK Day’
On Friday 13th October, we will be paying tribute to National Mental Health Week. To raise awareness of mental health, we encourage all students to wear yellow to school! This may be in the form of a yellow shirt, hair ties, etc. We have a number of visitors to the school who will be working with the students throughout the duration of the day to highlight positive mental health and how to be expressive. Room 37 will be attending a session that focuses on Art & creativity.
