St James E-News 

3rd December 2020

Welcome to the St James Primary School's E-News, a weekly roundup of the latest goings on at the school.

Dear Parents,

We were all so pleased to welcome Eagles back at school today, we have missed them! 

Do take the time to look at the Christmas tree on the village green.  We were delighted to be asked to make the star placed on the top, I hope you will agree that it looks wonderful.

I know many of you have taken advantage of the wonderful PTA Christmas tree ordering service and want to thank Emma Bayley for all of her efforts in arranging this once again. 

Unfortunately parents won't be able to see the creative efforts of Nic Kelly who has made more of her beautiful fabric Christmas decorations for us.  Mrs Gunner and Mrs Lowry had fun putting them up in the hall and reception area and the children and staff love the festive feel they have brought to the school. At least we can share some photographs with you.

Best wishes for a lovely weekend,

Valerie Elliott
