Year 2 Leavers' Hoodies 

 

 

We can't believe it's already the Summer term and our Year 2 students will soon be leaving Letchmore Infants' and Nursery School for the next stage of their school adventure. 

 

The PTA (Parent Teacher Association) would like to give every Year 2 child a special hooded sweatshirt free of charge, as a souvenir of their time at Letchmore.

 

Please complete the online order form at the link below to confirm to the PTA Committee whether or not your Year 2 child wants a free hoodie, what size they would like, and if you are happy for their name to be included in the design on the back (all the children's names will be shaped into a 24!).

 

Please write your child's details carefully to avoid any errors. We need to receive a completed form for every Year 2 child, even if you do not want a hoodie, to ensure everyone has been given the option. 

 

Please submit your order as soon as possible, and before Friday 10th May 2024We cannot accept any orders or changes after this date due to the long manufacturing lead-times. Hoodies will be distributed in school towards the end of the summer term as a goodbye gift. 

 

The secure order form is here:

Year 2 Leavers' Party 

Here's a date for your diary – the Year 2 Letchmore Leavers’ Party takes place on Monday 22nd July! This event is completely funded by the PTA, so it is free to attend. It's a lovely occasion for the children to celebrate their time at Letchmore and say goodbye to their teachers and friends. The party will take place in the school hall from 4pm until 6pm. There will be a disco with a professional DJ. Your child should be collected from school at the usual time that day, and then returned to school for the party at 4pm. If your child is booked to attend after-school club on this day, they will be able to get changed there and be escorted to the party by staff (just bring a party outfit in a bag to school that day). The party will be run by Year 2 teaching staff and PTA Committee members. Parents/Carers are asked to collect children promptly at 6pm. Stay tuned for more details about the party nearer the time!

Fundraising this year

Welcome back! Hope you all had a lovely holiday. The start of a new year is a perfect time to get involved with the PTA (Parent Teacher Association) at Letchmore. Regular support from parents and carers enables the PTA to organise fun activities for the children and provide new school equipment. The PTA is a registered charity, number 1029384. All support, no matter how small, will add up to make a big difference. So if you have a New Year’s resolution to get involved in the school community, then we’d love to have you!

 

You could get involved with the PTA by signing up to our weekly school lottery, by shopping through AmazonSmile, by becoming a PTA Committee member or a volunteer in our “Friends of the PTA” WhatsApp group, or simply by coming to PTA events and generally helping us to reach our fundraising targets.

                        

Get involved with the PTA

The PTA needs you! The PTA is a registered charity, and our fundraising goes directly towards some great causes, with recent examples including new playground equipment, IT equipment, gym equipment, phonics resources and much more. There are easy ways to get involved, including the School Lottery, Amazon Smile, and volunteering your time. All support, no matter how small, adds up to make a big difference. Please see the attached poster for ways you can help or email the PTA at pta@letchmore.herts.sch.uk to get involved.

 

 

Match Funding
Does your company offer match funding? The PTA is a registered charity, and match funding is a great way for us to double our fundraising on events that we run during the year. If your company offers match funding, please email us at PTA@letchmore.herts.sch.uk and we'd be happy to provide a letter to help you secure match funding on behalf of the PTA.

 

Amazon Smile

Did you know that every time you shop on Amazon, you could be earning money for the PTA? Same selection, same price, but the PTA gets a cut directly from Amazon.  Simply search for "Smile" on Amazon, follow the link to Amazon Smile and select Letchmore PTA as your charity of choice. Amazon will then donate a portion of the purchase price to the PTA.  Earn money for our school whilst doing your Christmas shopping - a win-win!
