Dear Parents/Guardians,

Junior Infants: The full infant day (9am -1.40pm) will commence from next Monday, Sept. 17th. Well done to parents and pupils with the line-up this week and please continue to stand at the back of the line, to allow children walk in/out safely with teacher. Try and have your child standing ‘in the line for five to nine’. At this stage children will be walking in, in two lines, so please refrain from ‘high fiving’ and waiting at the door to see them in! Thank you.

School Photographer: Junior Infants will have their school photographs taken on Tuesday 25th September. Any children new to the school can also have their photograph taken on this day.

School Books: There are still a very small number of pupils without some of their school books. These may be purchased from Castle Book Shop, Leixlip. We would appreciate if these books could be purchased as soon as possible, and all school fees (€95) settled by Friday 14th.

St. Thomas’ J.N.S. Parents Association: Our first meeting took place last on Tuesday 12th

Our A.G.M. takes place next Wednesday 19th September @8pm in the senior hall.

All parents are very welcome, and a short meeting will be held afterwards, at which we elect our officers for the coming year , and plan an exciting year ahead!

Wine and cheese reception will follow.

Board of Management: Our School Board will be holding their first meeting of the year next Monday night @ 8.p.m.in the staffroom.

Can you give one Sunday Family Mass a month?

We are looking for volunteers. The Children’s Mass Activity is for children in the pre-Holy Communion age group and takes place in the Pastoral Centre at St. Patricks Church Esker, while the 10.30am Sunday Family Mass is being celebrated. The team requires some volunteers to maintain the program. We only ask volunteers to help at one mass a month. If you or any other parishioners would be interested in helping, please let us know! You can send an email to stpatrickschurchlucan@gmail.com with your name or alternatively give your name to one of our volunteers at the 10.30am Family Mass at St. Patrick’s Church, Esker.

Army Band: We had a special treat for our First and Second Classes today 13th September with a short concert from the 35-piece Army Band, which has been facilitated by one of our parents (Edel Kennedy).

Gaelic Football Coaching : This has commenced with all our Senior Infant classes and will continue for seven weeks under the direction of David Moran, a qualified Leinster Council coach, attached to Lucan Sarsfields GAA club.

Found: Silver earring found on yard, call to the office.

Pupil Insurance Scheme: Application forms will go out to all parents next week.

Yours sincerely

Michael Maher
