Parent Teacher Association
We were delighted to be able to hold the Letchmore School Hallowe’en Disco again this year. It was so lovely to see the children having fun and dancing their socks off. All funds raised from the disco will go towards school equipment and fun learning experiences for the children at Letchmore this year, so thank you to everyone who bought tickets and helped run the event. It was organised by the volunteers of the PTA Committee and other parent helpers. Without volunteers, these PTA events would not be able to happen. If you would like to volunteer your time to the PTA, either as a Committee member or a helper on an ad-hoc basis, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ordering Christmas cards and gifts - new deadline!
We have finally received confirmation from ClassFundraising that ordering for Christmas cards and other products has reopened. Thank you for your patience regarding this new process. Please use the log-in instructions on your child's proof card – scanning the QR code seems to be the simplest way.
There is a 3-step-process to order products:
1. Approve your child's artwork via ClassFundraising
2. Place your order for products via ClassFundraising
3. Use Arbor to make payment - on the Arbor app or at https://login.arbor.sc/
The ClassFundraising website you need is https://approve.myfundraisinghub.com/. Please be advised that orders cannot be approved for printing unless payment is received. You must order on ClassFundraising AND pay on Arbor.
The new deadline for ordering products is Wednesday 9th November. This will ensure PTA volunteers have enough time to manage the process with ClassFundraising before their final order deadline. If you do not have your child's proof card, please email: email@example.com or call them on 01642 489000. You will need to advise them your query relates to Letchmore Infants' and Nursery School and provide your child's name and class.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
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.
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!
