School note January 10th. 2013

Dear parents,
                     I would like to welcome all pupils, staff and parents back to school after the Christmas break.
                     As part of the school's self-evaluation in the area of Maths, we wish to conduct a parental survey. This short, anonymous survey is attached overleaf. Please complete and return to the school as soon as possible.
                 Music in the Classroom takes place on Wednesday January 16th.  in the University Concert Hall. All pupils from First to Fourth Classes will attend this excellent event. Please put the money in an envelope with your child's name on it for the attention of the class teacher. The cost including bus, concert etc is €13 per child, the same as last year.
Fifth Class pupils have just started a six-week programme of swimming lessons in Askeaton Leisure Centre. This is a great opportunity for all pupils to learn a lifelong skill.
                      I would like to thank Analog Devices who have donated €300 for school funds. Thanks to Ms Shirley Byrnes who made representations on our behalf.
                      The closing date to have your child's name on the Enrolment List for Junior Infants in September 2013 is Friday January 25tth. at 3 p.m. Please contact the school if you have not already done so. Letters to parents of prospective Junior Infants were posted on Tuesday.
                     From next Thursday, the weekly note will be sent by e mail to all parents who have provided the school with an e mail address.
Gach dea-ghuí,

J. Lyons
