At Crossdale, we encourage all of our children to eat a balanced and varied diet. At break times, we recommend that children have fruit as a snack and at breaktimes and lunchtimes request that children do not have packets of sweets. We work hard to maintain the ‘Healthy Schools Award’ standards and greatly appreciate your support in this.
Christmas Jumper Day
On Friday 16th December we will be having a ‘Christmas Jumper Day’ to help raise money for the ‘Save the Children’ charity. By wearing festive knits and making a voluntary contribution of £2 we will be able to raise money to help save children’s lives.
Christmas Jumpers – if you have any Christmas jumpers that you no longer need or want, please donate them to the PTA (bring into the school office and they will be passed on). Early in December there will be a Christmas Jumper sale where you will be able to purchase (for a minimal fee!) a Christmas jumper – perfect timing for the Christmas Jumper Day at School!
Crossdale Fun Run and 10k – Well done to everyone who took part in the fun run and 10K event last weekend. It was a lovely day with lots of keen and enthusiastic runners! An amazing £1600 was raised, so a huge thank you to everyone who organised this and to everyone who came along and took part or supported.
Welcome Disco – What fun night! Thank you to everyone who came along and thank you to everyone who helped to organise, set up, run and tidy up! We will let you know the amount raised from this event once all monies have been counted!
Next Meeting – Monday 26th September, 3:30pm in the Year 2 Classroom. Please come along to find out more about the PTA and upcoming events. EVERYONE welcome!
