Parents’ Evening

Our spring term Parents’ Evenings will take place on Monday 20th March and Wednesday 22nd March.  Please look out for the signing sheets in the entrance hall from next Wednesday.  If you do not come into school regularly then please feel free to ring Mrs Gallagher who will advise you of the times available.



Coffee Morning & Bingo Night

Next Thursday is the Coffee Morning at Ulverston Coronation Hall which the Friends of Lamps have organised to raise money for school.  Some Year 5 pupils will also attend the event to assist the adults and be available to talk to any members of the community about our school and how they benefit from any money raised. 


The following evening is the Bingo Night which will be held in the school hall.  The event is open to parents and community members.  No ticket is needed as you can pay on the door.


You can support these fundraising events either by attending or making a contribution for the raffles.  Any items (or time) you can offer, no matter how small, are always greatly appreciated. 



World Book Day

Thank you so much for the huge effort given to dressing the children up as book characters to celebrate World Book Day yesterday.  It was fantastic to see the children so enthusiastic about books and reading.



Red Nose Day

On Monday you will receive a letter from our School Council and a Comic Relief sponsor form.  The School Council have planned a litter pick to raise money and hope to receive support from the whole community.  


We have also ordered 2 boxes of red noses to sell to the children during the week.  However, as we will only have 80, they will initially be sold on the basis of only one per child.




Many happy returns this week to Francisca (Yr 1) who was 6 on Tuesday this week and also to Oliver (Yr 2) who celebrated his 7th birthday yesterday.  We hope you both had a fantastic time!



 Diary Dates

These are useful dates for your diary that will be added to each week.  More information about each event will be provided nearer the time.
