Presentations text content in Dear Parents, Friends and Carers,
Dear Parents, Friends and Carers,Our first year as a new committee has past and we hope you have enjoyed the events we have organised….we certainly have had lots of fun and laughter organising them!A huge thank you to all those who helped and for those that came along and joined in the fun at the Hoedown. We managed to raise over £2,000 for the children of Wrenbury School. If you tried the Moonshine, I’m sure you will agree it definitely hit the spot!....and numbed it!It was unfortunate that we had to cancel the car boot, we possibly planned this a little too early upon the return to school. We intend to re-visit this event in the spring/early summer.The Autumn Disco is booked for the 25th September. The children love it, showing off their dance moves and waving their glow sticks in the air! Please note that due to the reception children being so young we have decided to split KS1 and KS2. Details to follow. Can we remind parents that for safety all children need to be signed into the disco by a parent and then collected by a parent. Film Night - We are currently awaiting a new part for the school projector system, but we are aiming for the last day of term, Thursday 22nd October. Fingers crossed the part arrives in time! Confirmation and details to follow!

The next collection is scheduled for the morning of the 17th November. Bags will be sent to all parents. Could you please ask family, friends and neighbours to fill a bag for us. The more weight, the more cash we will raise for our kids!With only 14 weeks until Christmas, our School Fair is booked for Friday the 4th December. This is a great family event with lots of fun for the children and festive delights for the adults. Further details to follow.Can we take this opportunity to remind parents about the Giving Machine. Please take a few minutes to look at the Giving Machine website, it’s very quick to join and your purchases are confidential. Once you have joined all you need to remember is to shop through the Giving Machine site. We have created these stickers as a reminder, they are easy peel so will not damage your device. This really is an excellent way to give without giving!FOWS will also be running a Tuck Shop every 2 to 3 weeks on a Friday after school. This gives the parents the opportunity to give their children a small treat and in the process we raise funds for the school. We actively encourage a healthy lifestyle with Rachel Ashley from FOWS running the gardening club where the children are able to grow and learn about fresh fruit and vegetables.
Rob at the Cotton!
It is exciting news that the outdoor classroom has been ordered and the children will be able to utilise this fantastic facility over the winter months. The money has taken considerable time and effort over the years to accumulate and we are very grateful to the previous chairs and vice chairs and all committee members for their efforts. We are still actively fundraising to complete the payment and will be contacting local businesses for help. If you have any useful contacts or are able to help, please contact the FOWS team.FOWS Wildlife Club would also like to fundraise for a bird box camera. If we can get this installed before spring, we could streamline the images (egg to chick) to the electronic devices within the school. This would be a fantastic experience for the children to see.As you can see from our FOWS newsletter, there is a considerable amount of time and effort put into the fundraising to provide our children with the best equipment and enhance their learning environment. We have recently lost 4 very active committee members as their children moved onto high school and we are now desperate for new parents to join the team. We know from experience that exhausted committee members can lead to resignations and jeopardises the future of FOWS. Please help us to help the children, I’m sure you will agree that they are worth every penny and all the time needed to invest in their future.Don’t forget to keep in touch with all our news and events via facebook. Please like us when you can and share with your friends and family.On behalf of the FOWS Team, thank you for taking the time to ready thisnewsletter and for your continued support. The FOWS Team
