Week 6, Term 4

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Room 14 have a busy week ahead of them preparing for our assembly on Friday. Due to Ahurei being on the same day and a number of Room 14 students taking part, our assembly will be at 9am. We would love to have as many parents/siblings/friends/special people supporting our amazing students as possible.

Homework:
Spelling - Please make sure that all students have their spelling notebooks at school on Monday and Thursday - We will have our test on Thursday due to athletics day being on Friday.
Reading - Please make sure that students are reading at home for at least 15 minutes and recording what they have read daily. We will be checking these on Friday.
Please keep up the MathWhizz and Lexia usage at home.



The Young Vinnies are coordinating a ‘can drive’ and the cans will be given to the Vinnies food bank. Any cans brought in will get 1 house point each. So far only Mill Hill has brought cans in for Room 14. Please be generous, even if it is only one can per person. It will make a big difference to those in need.

The Angel Tree:
To St Mary’s parents, caregivers and community,
Last year our church community supported ‘Angel Tree’ which is a branch of the ‘Prison Fellowship of New Zealand’ (PFNZ), a Christian charitable organisation that was founded over 40 years ago.  For  18 years PFNZ and angel tree have been making a difference at Christmas for children with a parent or grandparent in prison.  Last year nearly 4000 children benefitted nationwide, and our church community supported 42 of those children.  This year through our school community we are hoping to support 50 local Rotorua children.
This is how it works and how you can help.  By the end of this week a Christmas tree will be in the office foyer with 50 gift tags on it. On each tag is written a child’s name, age and a present suggestion from their caregivers.  Gifts are $25 each, please support angel tree by taking a tag and buying a present.  When you have bought the present bring it back to school UNWRAPPED and with the tag attached by Friday 8th December.
If you can’t get to the school office to pick up a tag, please text or phone me and a tag will be sent home in an envelope with your child. Angel tree would prefer that children didn’t select the tags to take them home.
Your support helps local Rotorua children receive a gift from their loved one at Christmas.
For any questions or to organise a tag to be sent home please phone Rachel Schuster on 0274461351
Thank you for your help and support,

The Rotorua Angel tree team
