Thursday Notice Board
Kia Ora e te whānau,
Pae tamariki is on Thursday 30th and Friday 31st of July this year, which is basically straight after the holidays. So we are hoping to have a Saturday afternoon practice on the first weekend back, this will be on the 24th July from 1pm - 4pm. A reminder notice will go home with your child on the first week back.
We have also put the words to all the songs on RSS Matauranga Māori - http://rssmataurangamaori.blogspot.co.nz and we are hoping to record the group during Kapa Haka practice on Thursday and put it on the blog too.
Nic, Rosie and Ebs.
Are you creative, do you think outside the box? We need you!
As students prepare for an amazing showcase of learning for term 3. We need expertise, passion and help during the term to bring our ideas to life in a Wearable Arts Spectacular! If you or someone you know can help please see your child's teacher.
This week we send out a Community Newsletter, so there is no regular ‘TNB’.
On Monday and Tuesday we were pleased to see almost all of you at ‘Student Led Conferences’, at which time mid-year, national standard reports were also handed out. If you missed any of the letters, texts or TNB notices about this, we’d still like to meet with you. The classroom teacher will be in direct contact with you to arrange a time, for early next term.
Please remember, at any time during the year, if you would like to discuss your child's learning with the teacher just email or call in to make an appointment. We love to share what we know about your child and help families support learning at home.
This Friday we farewell Ebony as she gets closer to the birth date of her first child. We wish her all the best and look forward to her return at the start of 2016.
Entries into the draw to win this are all the Go For Gold stamp cards collected from July 6th – November 29th. The winning school will then be drawn randomly at the end of November.
In addition to support this giveaway we will have a segment called ‘Sporting Superstars’. From August to November in store there is going to be a life size cut out of a child kicking a rugby ball with its face left blank so someone can go behind the cutout and get a photo as the character. People will be encouraged to get a photo as the ‘Sporting Superstar’, then post it to their Facebook or Instagram (or both) account using the hashtag that corresponds to our school. This in turn gives the school an extra entry into the draw to win the ‘Ultimate Rugby Prize Kit.’ There will also be a cutout at each school with the same concept. Participants are able to take one photo in each location per day and load it to their Facebook or Instagram account.
PTC Calendar App is up and running for Russell Street School. Simply go to the iTunes or Play store, locate and download the PTC calendar app.
When you open the app it asks you to select your region and school. Once selected you have access to the school's community calendar, links to the website and newsletter and phone and email contact details.
We are currently not encouraging families to SMS absences as we cannot verify the genuineness of who sent the text unlike phone messages.
This app is free to our community thanks to the generous sponsorship of Lee European, Kelly Club, Max Tar & Melody's New World, Trophy Specialists & Engraving Ltd, DTSL and Rewanui Kindergarten.
If you’ve been checking out the RSS Supporters’ Club site you’ll be wanting to know the answer to the question ‘What is the collective noun for a group of owls? And if you’re looking to support the school’s fundraising efforts (development of a scooter path/track) or simply want to have a good fun night out, then you’ll want to sign up for the upcoming Quiz Night, to be held at' Boys High, on Saturday, July 4th. Please do remember that you can sign up as an individual to be put in a team! Once again there is a resounding turnout for Student Led Conferences.
Please remember that school ends at 12.30 on Monday 29th, enabling teachers and students to get started. If you have yet to book, the booking site is open until late Sunday. Just visit www.schoolinterviews.co.nz and put in the code PSZJJ. We look forward to seeing you all.
