Dear Parents / Carers,

It's been another positive end to the school year and I think everybody in the school community can look back with satisfaction and pride on what has been achieved.  My thanks go to everybody for their ongoing support and a special mention to my fantastic staff whose efforts are as ever, very much appreciated. Have a great Summer all and we look forward to the new challenges of the 2017-18 academic year and the big move across town!.

​Leavers' Service - My thanks also go to Year 6 for a wonderful Leavers' Service.  Best wishes to them as they move on to Secondary school.  Thank you to Mr Davies for preparing them so well.  Take a look at Flickr for photos of the event.

Some Goodbyes – As well as our Year 6 pupils, we say goodbye to a couple of staff members.  Mrs. Baker leaves us after many years of wonderful service to the school and its community.  She has been a dedicated teacher, a committed colleague, a supporter of the school and a great friend.  She will be sorely missed and I'd like to thank her on behalf of everyone, for what she has given to Rhos Street School. We also bid goodbye to Jane Hughes, who has been supporting in the Foundation Phase for the last couple of years. We thank her for her service and wish her well in her new job.

Music Showcase – Thank you for the support and the lovely feedback after the Musical Showcase event in school last week.  It was a delight to have all our musicians performing and to see the rock choir go through their songs.  Thanks to the PTA for providing refreshments.

Dinners- From September, the cost of school lunches will increase to £2.10

Neuroblastoma – Our Football Shirt Friday last week raised £153 for this worthwhile and topical charity.  Thank you for the support.

Pentrellyncymer – Please ensure that Year 3 pupils send in their deposits by tomorrow.

Hope House – Our recent fundraising collected £80.

Back to School! – The school will reopen on Tuesday September 5th. We can't wait!

PTA – At the end of the year – another big thank you goes to the PTA for their efforts this year.  Please put the 11th November in your diaries as the date for a forthcoming fund-raising evening, which will include a live band, gourmet burgers and an Auction of Promises.  We hope, that as well as being a fun evening, it will also raise the funds needed for our new Chromebooks. It is to be held at the Rugby Club, Ruthin.If you would like to donate a promise to be auctioned on the night, please contact Julie Starling (Jessica's mum year 2) or another member of the PTA. A promise could be anything from cleaning windows, baking a birthday cake, being a Taxi to the airport or offering a night in your holiday cottage. No promise can be too small or too big...!!

Reading Challenge – Information about this Summer's Reading Challenge has been sent home.  Please encourage your child to complete the challenge and to read as much as possible over the holidays.  Thank you.

​Mayoral Visit - The Mayor visited, bringing us the good news that Jessica's letter requesting the Town Council funded the cost of a box to house the new debrifilator was met with an affirmative answer.  We are grateful to Jessica for sorting this and to the Mayor for the support.

​Forest School - The Year 2 pupils really enjoyed their recent Forest Schools activities.  This week they made popcorn and also toasted marshmallows.

Clearout – We have taken advantage of the opportunity to begin preparing for next year's move, by sorting out and throwing away what we don't anticipate taking with us.  Between ourselves and Pen Barras we have managed to sling a lot of stuff!​​

The proceeds will go to both Mountain Rescue and towards our defibrillator fund.
