Parent Teacher Association
World Book Day
It was lovely seeing all of the kids in their snuggly PJs and onesies yesterday. Thank you for all your generous donations to the PTA. We’re pleased to share that we raised over £150 which will go towards new books for the children, to foster a continued love of reading.
Mother’s Day Present Room
A reminder that the PTA Mother’s Day Present Room is running on Tuesday 14th March, and tickets are now on sale. If you haven’t already purchased your tickets, then please do so soon as ticket sales close on Wednesday.
Each present room entry ticket costs £2 and equates to one gift. Purchase your child’s ticket(s) for the event in the School Shop on Arbor at this link: https://letchmore-infants-and-nursery.uk.arbor.sc/?/home-ui/index. A step by step guide on how to do this were in last week’s dedicated email on this subject, so please refer to that email for more details.

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 email@example.com 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!
