The Friends of Summerfields are holding a fun quiz night on Friday 15th January 2016.  This evening is for adults only.  Bring your own drink and nibbles!  £2.00 per person entry fee with a maximum of 6 per team.  Come along and have some fun while raising funds for your children at Summerfields.



Please remember if your child borrows clothing from school, can you ensure that it is washed and then returned to school as soon as possible.  We have now run out of small girls pants.  If you have borrowed some, please return to your child’s class. If you have any underwear suitable for small children that you would like to donate, please hand in to the school office.  Thank you.



We have again acquired a mountain of lost property after a “tidy up” of the school at Christmas.  This will be on display from Monday morning just inside the school hall.  If lost property is not claimed next week, then it will be given to charity.  Please take time to go through these items if your child has recently lost anything.



Do you have any spare time?  Do you want to make a difference but don’t know how?  Then why not go along to the Volunteer Fair and find out more about volunteering opportunities on the Isle of Wight this year.  This event is being held at Ventnor Botanic Garden on Saturday 16th January 2016 from 11.00am-3.00pm.  There is free entry and free parking!  No matter what your age, background, experience or ability you are sure to find something to interest and inspire you at this fair.



The word of the week is “caricature”.



Polite and pleasing.  Show teachers that you know how to talk to them by making the right choice of words and tone of voice.
