The Kirk Fenton Pro

Weekly newsletter for staff w/c 3rd December 2018


Welcome to this week's KF Pro. As we head into the last three weeks of term the children are becoming more excited just at the time that we are becoming more tired and frazzled but hang on in there! You are all doing a great job which I truly appreciate and all the perfomances will come together at the last minute like they always do. There are tissues, Lemsip and Nurofen in my office if you need them and my door is usually open if you just want to call in for 5 minutes peace away from the madness.
