Dear Parents / Carers,

A busy day, week, month, term and indeed year comes to an end where the school is concerned and I think everyone is very relieved that the finishing line has come at last.  It's at times like this when I realise what a privilege it is to be part of this school.  The children and staff today sang Christmassy songs with all their hearts and I was so proud of them all in their concerts this year. Now the whole school community can look forward to a couple of weeks of festive fun with presents, lots of food and a glass or two I'm sure.  There's been a lovely Christmas atmosphere here at the school and a feeling of satisfaction after a very positive term.  I'd like to thank my excellent, highly skilled staff for all they do for the pupils under their care, to the Governors for their work and commitment and to parents and relatives for your ever appreciated support. Merry Christmas to you all!

Yours stincerely / Yn gywir,

​Cinderella Rockefella - Thank you for the lovely feedback following the Juniors' concerts this week.  They were very special events which I'm sure will live long in the memory.  Thank you to the pupils for their wonderful performances and to Mr. Davis' team for their work in preparing the pupils.  The PTAs efforts providing refreshments and running a raffle were also very much appreciated. 

Giggles – Giggles has won £100 to spend in Hobbycraft. It is a WPPA easyfundraising competition. They're looking forward to spending the £100 on educational goods for the children. They're going to buy a small teepee for the children and need a few crafty bits that will replace supplies after all the Christmas craft. Easyfundraising is a super idea for non-profitable/charitable organisations and settings that struggle financially. As a team, they fundraise for any equipment/craft items that are needed.

INSET – Monday, January 8th is a staff training day, so the children will return on Tuesday the 9th.

Snow – Let's hope any snow is restricted to the holidays, but remember if you are in any doubt regarding school closures, then as ever, twitter is the place to go in the New Year.

​Christmas Singalong - We all assembled in the hall today for our annual Christmas singalong. The pupils sang with enthusiasm, the staff played percussion terribly and the mistakes I made on guitar were cleverly hidden by all the noise.  It was great fun!

​Reading Initiative - A DCC Reading Mentor Initiative has given Andrew, Finley and Billy the opportunity to have some sessions with David Logan and they were presented with a book and certificate this week.

​Achievers - Our achievers included Raif who gave a reading on behalf of the Rugby Club in St. Peter's Church at the weekend.  Katie received lifeguard certificates and badges, Faye a gymnastics certificate and Alex a taekwondo trophy and blue belt.

Art Club – Please see the letter sent home this week, in order to register your child to art club in the New Year.

Glasdir – The latest newsletter regarding the Glasdir build has been published.  I have emailed out a copy and it is also downloadable from our twitter account.

Sportzone – Please see your email inbox and twitter for details of Denbighshire Leisure Services Sportzone activities in the New Year.

Urdd Netball Training – See twitter for details of netball sessions in Ruthin run by the Urdd in the New Year.

PTA – You will see the PTA has sent a note thanking you all for your contributions.  I would like to thank Jayne and her team for their hard work and support. They've been fantastic. 

​PTA Fair - Despite being scaled down, the PTA Fair was a huge success.  The pupils' stalls were fantastic and their projects to develop financial education skills has taught them a lot.  Thank you for supporting.  It was a pleasure to welcome the school community through the doors in such good numbers and showcase the good work being done by our pupils.  There was a lovely atmosphere of positivity around the whole event.

Xmas Choir - Thank you to the pupils who sang this week.  They deserved the goodies and treats in Costa yesterday.  They also sang wonderfully in Tesco and at the Fair.

Dear Parents / Carers,

A week to go and despite the mayhem, it is a very special time of year.  The snow has of course added some additional drama to the festive period and while it was fun in lots of ways, I'd like to thank the school community for their co-operation in helping to manage the hazards involved.

Annwyl Rieni / Gwarchodwyr,

Gyda wythnos i fynd, er y prysurdeb, mae'n gyfnod arbennig iawn.  Mae'r eira wedi ychwanegu at y drama wrth gwrs a tra roedd yn llawer o hwyl, rwy'n ddiolchgar i bawb am eu cydweithrediad yn helpu i reoli y peryglon amrywiol.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Twitter – Issues with the recent weather, highlighted further what a useful resource twitter is for sharing information.  We are adding to our followers each week, so if you don't yet follow us, please do so in order for you to be kept up to date with all activities, particularly if there is news we need to get out there as a matter of urgency. @rhosstreet

​Infants' Concert - The three performances of The Sleepy Shepherd went down a treat.  Huge thanks go to the pupils for providing the entertainment.  I'd also like to thank Mrs Liddy and her team of Foundation Phase staff and to the Giggles team for their hard work preparing the concerts.  The final performance was particularly poignant, as it was the final Xmas concert ever to be held at the current Rhos Street site.  Well done to everybody concerned.

Thank You Waterco - Chromebook Appeal – You will be aware having seen the PTAs letter this week, that they have been instrumental in raising money to buy a set of Chromebooks that will be with us in the New Year.  Additionally, an appeal was made to any local businesses to sponsor a Chromebook for £200 and we were delighted to hear from Waterco, who kindly volunteered to do so.  We are very grateful for this wonderful gesture and if any other local businesses want to become involved in our venture, then please do get in touch.

Juniors' Concert Arrangements – We have a dress rehearsal on Monday afternoon, so please could you ensure that all items of costume are in school on Monday morning. The concerts once again take place at Ruthin school. The first public performance will be on Tuesday afternoon at 1.30pm.  Contributions are requested on the door, with no advance tickets sold.  The evening performance will begin at 6pm, but we request that the pupils arrive by 5.30pm. Parking is at a premium at the site, so if you are able to walk the children, then that would be useful. The PTA will provide refreshments and there will be a raffle, which will be drawn during the interval.

​Xmas Jumpers - Christmas Jumper Day was as colourful as ever. The contributions will go to Save the Children and seeing all the outfits has made everybody feel really Christmassy.

Christmas Choir Arrangements – Having had a couple of recent 'gigs' cancelled, the Christmas Choir will sing once again next week.  On Wednesday, we will take them down to Tesco at 1pm, before they sing again in the PTA Fair later the same afternoon.  We have also provisionally been invited to sing in Costa at the end of next week and I will provide further details when I have them. 

PTA Film Morning – On Wednesday morning, as a special treat, the PTA will hold a film morning for the pupils.  Thanks once again to them for their ongoing support to the school.

Christmas Fair – On Wednesday afternoon, as you will have seen from the letter sent out this week, the Fair has been scaled down and rescheduled for Wednesday afternoon from 2.30-4pm.  The pupils will be given the chance to sell their wares from their class stalls and we will hold the raffle and sing as outlined above.

Outstanding Monies – Could all outstanding dinner money and music lesson payments be settled on Monday please.  Paying on Monday will assist us in completing all administrative tasks before the end of term.  Many thanks.

Logo Consultation – Our pupils are being involved in a very important task at the end of this term, to help finalise the new Rhos Street Logo.  You will recall that months ago, the pupils were asked to share ideas on what they thought the logo should depict and the hills, castle and church featured strongly.  They are discussing their favourites from the ideas submitted and in the New Year, we will be delighted to share their final decisions with you!

Reading Club – No reading club next week.

Infant Christmas Parties – These take place on Tuesday next week!

​Xmas Lunch - The canteen was a very busy place yesterday, as scores of Xmas Dinners were served by Lyn and her team.  Thank to them for the lovely meal.  It was, as ever a very festive occasion!

Dear Parents,

Snow – There has been much excitement today as the snow has fallen. More is forecast and of course, we will have to see how that affects us moving into next week.  Twitter will keep you updated.

Xmas Dinner – The pupils will enjoy their Christmas lunch next Thursday, 14th December.  In order for the canteen to have correct numbers in advance, please inform us and pay on Monday.  Many thanks.

Parking – I have been contacted by a local resident asking for parents to park respectfully outside homes around the school.  Please help us maintain good relations by conforming to this request.

Christmas Choir – This weekend our choir sings again. On Saturday, could we meet at Llys Marchan for 11.55, to sing at 12pm please.  Pupils can wear own clothes.  On Sunday, we sing at the Rotary Concert in St. Peter's Church.  Please be there by 5.45pm in school uniform.  If there are any changes to the above arrangements due to the weather, then I will update via twitter.  Thank you to the pupils and parents supporting our choir.

Glasdir – Members of the School Council have visited the Glasdir site over the last week to have a sneak preview of how the building is progressing.  I think they were suitably impressed!

PTA Fair – Due to the weather, we have unfortunately had to postpone the PTA Xmas Fair.  We will endeavour to reschedule in some form before the end of term.

Xmas Jumper Day – As is traditional every year, we will be taking part in this event once again and next Friday, pupils can pay a pound to come to school in a Christmas Jumper. Money raised goes towards Save the Children.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,
