 Dear Parents/Guardians,

Mid-term is upon us! How quickly the year is speeding past us. I know that there will be lots of ghouls and goblins and witches and wizards out and about over the Hallowe’en holiday… be very careful! If you get a chance, drop in to the school to see the wonderful Art work displayed throughout the school by all the wonderful children of Kilmacanogue National School.

A reminder about the cake sale and fancy dress day tomorrow in the school hall. If you could donate any cakes or buns please leave them in the school hall in the morning. NO NUTS PLEASE due to allergies.The Parents’ Association will also hold a raffle for the parents, with tickets on sale in the Parish Hall from 1.30pm tomorrow. They have some great prizes including a voucher for €150!!

The cake sale for Dogs Trust Ireland organised by Aoibhe Nolan from 4th class and the Cubs took place on Sunday, 21st October, in the Parish Hall. There was a great turn out and more than €300 was raised! Well done Aoibhe, you are a great girl.

I watched our boys from 5th and 6th class today as they played in the Football Blitz in Bray Emmet’s. They were fantastic. Great sports’ men. We are so lucky here in Kilmacanogue National School to have such talented children in their sporting activities and learning skills.

 If your child is absent for any reason, please let the school/teacher know. Ideally writing a note or putting it in his/her homework journal would be very much appreciated. Phoning the office is to be encouraged but the written form is also very important. Thank you for your co-operation in this regard.

Another reminder that the school will be closed on October 26th for the Presidential Election and will reopen on Monday November 5th after the mid-term break. Please have a safe and a wonderful holiday.

And now…….joke time!
