Kirk Fenton News

22nd November 2019

Dear Parents / Carers,

First of all this week I would like to thank all those parents that attended the Friends of Kirk Fenton EGM. It was a good turnout and I am very pleased and relieved to say that we now have a new committee for the next school year. Your support is invaluable so thank you for stepping up.

Also this week a well done to our Year 5 & 6 swimmers who competed at the swimming festival on Thursday. Your team work and perseverance made me proud.

We are now in full swing with our Christmas rehearsals so school is a very merry place to be however we still want to support continued learning in all our pupils so please ensure that you continue to read with your child and help them to learn spellings and times tables.

Have a good weekend,

Mrs Karen Williams
