PTA Notice!
Tue, Dec 14 1:35pm
Hello Fairmeadow!
 
Hope you are all staying dry and warm in this wet wintery weather!!
Last week of school in 2021 - can you believe it? 
 
We know this time of the year can be extremely busy and sometimes people can feel a little overwhelmed, but remember just do what you can, ask for help when you need it and give of your time/donate if you are able and if all of that is still too much take a well deserved time out and give yourself a chance to reset and reenergize.
 
Remember at Fairmeadow, we are all connected in so many ways, but we all have one big important common factor - our kids/students! So today in between the chaos of this holiday season, plus getting through a million other things ..take a moment to give your loved ones a spontaneous hug or big smile …we all need to be reminded that we too were kids once and well.. just because ….😊 
 
☃️Class Parties : This week will be another busy week at school, but hopefully all of our classes led by their fabulous Room Parents and Teachers will have a fun celebration before finishing up for the Holiday break!! If you have not heard about your child's class party please reach out to your Room Parent or Teacher and ask how you can contribute or get involved :)
 
📚Book Fair : Huge thanks to our amazing Book Fair Chair Soumaya A and all the lovely volunteers who helped out this week, plus a special shout out to Mari U also, who all juggled so much between kids, work & life, but who without their support our fair would not have been as successful as it was! Thank you to all those parents, students, teachers, grandparents, big(and small) brothers and sisters, uncles, aunts and nannies who came and supported our fair - it was so lovely to see so many people, we hope you all enjoy your purchases too! 
 
☕️Parent’s Holiday Coffee : Thank you to everyone that stopped by our Holiday Coffee on Friday morning! It was lovely to see so many show up even if it was just to grab a quick coffee or hot chocolate and say hi! Our thanks to Daniela V for adding the beautiful festive display to our coffee and we hope you were lucky enough to try Anjali J’s yummy cinnamon buns too. Our parents need a treat too and this was our way of saying thank you Fairmeadow parents for being so awesome!!  (You can check out some photos on our eNews :))
