Some important information!

Hello everyone,

Just a few reminders and notices for you all.

On Monday morning the Junior Infants will start lining up at the numbers '1' or '2' in the basketball court. We will come out and collect the class when the bell goes at 8.30. We would ask the parents not to come in with the children from Monday onwards as there are a lot of children and teachers making their way to their own classrooms. This will also help to establish a classroom routine and get the children used to coming in without their parents. 

The children will also be starting a longer day from Monday, so they will finish at 1.20 each afternoon. 

Some parents received Glanmore food menus to avail of the school lunches for the children. If you could please complete these and return them by Wednesday, that would be great! If you didn't get a form today, let us know and we will give one to you on Monday. 

Lastly, could you please give your child a baby photo of themselves to bring into school as we are going to talk about them together. 

The children are settling in very well and we really appreciate your patience at collection time. 

Jessica and Mel

A huge thank you and happy summer!

Hey everyone,  I just want to say thank you so much for such a wonderful two years. The children are a credit to all the parents and each child should be very proud of themselves because they have come so far since starting in Junior Infants two years ago.  They are all so unique and full of personality and have given me so much happiness and laughs every day. I'll miss them hugely but I know they will love the new challenges and exciting changes in First Class.  Always feel free to pop into me whenever you're passing and good luck in the future! Jessica ☺
