💙 Thank you from your PTA ❤️

As the school year comes to an end we just wanted to say a big thank you for all of your support again this year: attending events, making donations and volunteering your time.

We hope you and your children have enjoyed it all and had a great year. We’re pleased to say we’ve made a fantastic £20,955 this year and are donating over £36k to the school to deliver equipment and experiences for all of the children.

If you’d be interested in joining the PTA and helping to plan our events next year please email us on [email protected]

We hope you all have an amazing summer, and we wish our year 6 leavers all the best for the future 💙

See you in September!

20/07/2023

The rain may have sent us indoors but a great time was still had by all!

Thanks to everyone who donated, volunteered and came along with family and friends on the day!

Also special thanks to the Simms family for the loan of their tractor and toVan Blerk Designn for our fabulous social media, poster and banner design!

We raised £3,222 so thank you for your support ❤️

03/07/2023

Reminder for this week:

🧡 MYSTERY BAGS: Please bring back filled and decorated mystery bags to class teachers any time this week. Remind children to colour handles on their house colour as there are crucial house points up for grabs!!! More paper bags are available from the school office if required.

💜 Grand Draw tickets: Tickets are £1 each. Prizes are

🥇£100
🥈 £50 St Albans High Street Voucher
🥉 £20 School Uniform voucher

Complete ticket stubs for the number of tickets you are purchasing, place stubs along with payment in an envelope and drop off in the PTA postbox in the school office this week.
You can sell tickets to friends, family and neighbours too and all proceeds go to the PTA.

Winners will be drawn and announced at the Summer Fair on Saturday.

02/07/2023

We hope to see you all next Saturday 8th July, 12-3pm for our Summer Fair!

There’s so much planned so it will be a fun afternoon for the whole family. Friends and neighbours all welcome!

We still need volunteers to make sure everything can go ahead so if you can do a 1-1.5hr slot running a stall or help with set up or clear up it would be a huge help. Sign up at PTA Events: https://www.pta-events.co.uk/gardenfieldsjmischool/index.cfm?event=event&eventId=65089

Thanks also to Van Blerk Design for our fabulous Summer Fair designs, look out for the new banner on Townsend Drive 💜

26/06/2023

The countdown is on to our Summer Fair and we need your help to make it a success!

Many hands make light work! We've been busy putting lots of stalls and games together but we need your support to ensure that we can run them all.

If you can volunteer even just one hour it will help and you will still get to enjoy the fair with your own family.

We need help with:

☀️ Preparing for the fair on Friday
🍦 Set up or clear up on the day of the fair
🥳 Running stalls during the fair: games, arts and crafts, our new STEM Lab area or food and drink

Please sign up for a slot on PTA Events: https://www.pta-events.co.uk/gardenfieldsjmischool/index.cfm?event=event&eventId=65089

If you haven't already registered for our new platform, PTA Events, it's easy to do and will be the place to buy all event tickets and volunteer from now on.

Thanks so much for your support 💙
