All pupils can bring in non-perishable goods to be donated on the evening. We will accept goods in the school from Thursday. Below is a list of the remaining Preparation Masses for the year:

6th March:     Ash Wednesday in Kingscourt

Board of Management:   The next meeting for the Board will be this Tuesday the 4th of December. The reports from these Board meetings are available on the school website www.laraghmuffns.com.

Parent Association: Many thanks to all those who supported the recent cake sale and raffle and who purchased pupils Christmas cards. Thank you also to the committee for organising these events.

Building/Parking:   We are hoping to commence building our new classroom in the very near future. We are awaiting the final go-ahead from the Department. We are also actively seeking funding from the Department with regard to extending the school car parking facilities. We would like to commend the vast majority of parents who adhere to the car park guidelines we set out. We would remind parents, guardians and whomever picks up/drops off students to drive with extreme caution around the school environs. No car should be parked opposite the school or where the cones lie on the road. Pupils should be walked to the school gate and must be picked up at the gate at 2:00/3:00.  Thank you for your continuing cooperation in this matter.

Parent/Teacher Meetings:   Many thanks to all those parents who attended our P/T meetings last month. It provides a valuable opportunity for parent and teacher to discuss the pupils’ progression. If there is any issue with regard to your child that you wish to discuss with the class teacher, please contact them through a written note or via Gillian in the office.

Green Flag:   Ms. McNally is continuing to work hard with our Green School Committee on our next flag based on the theme of water. This month some classes got to visit the new water treatment plant in Kingscourt and we had visitors from Irish Water giving talks on water conservation. Our flag assessment will be in the New Year.

Debating: Congratulations to Ms. Quinn and her class who participated in their first inter-school debate in November. It was a tremendous experience and they learned a lot from the day.

Sport:   Well done to the boys’ football team on reaching the semi-final of Cumann na mBunscol this year. Our 3rd and 4th class boys also won all their matches at the recent Futsal Blitz while our 6th class won all their matches at the Cavan Tag Rugby Blitz. Our 5th class won two out of their three matches.

Our swimming squad is off to Cavan this Wednesday to participate in the County Swimming Gala. We wish them well.

Drama:   The pupils thoroughly enjoyed their Christmas Drama in Navan last week. As the school hall is in use as a classroom, it will not be possible to have plays in the school this year.

If you are available to help out at the cake sale, please contact Gillian in the office.  Your support is very much appreciated.

Christmas Cards designed by the children have been sent to the designer and will be returned soon to the school.  The packs will be available to order through the school if you so wish with the proceeds again going to the Association.

Parent/Teacher Meetings:   The P/T meetings this year take place on Wednesday the 14th and 21st of November after school each day.

Staffing:   We would like to welcome Ms. Michelle McConnon who will be filling in for Ms. Cleary for the next while.

Sport:   It is a very busy time for sport in the school. Our boys’ football team will be playing in a semi-final tomorrow. Our girls completed their training sessions with Ms Quinn before the mid-term break and will return in the spring. 3rd and 4th class will be participating in a Futsal contest on November 16th while 5th and 6th will be involved in a Tag Rugby blitz on November 22nd.   Brendan is continuing his coaching with the various classes. Well done to our cross country team who took part in the Cross Country Championships in October. Finally, we will be in touch with pupils who do swimming regularly with regard to the County Finals that take place next month.

Lost and Found:   Can we please ask you again to ensure all items of your child’s uniform are labelled clearly.  We already have a number of items in our lost and found collection after the 1st term.  If items are not labelled we have no way of returning them to their owner.

Colaiste Dun an Rí :  Pupils from 6th class are invited to Colaiste Dun an Ri’s subject sampling morning on Saturday 10th of November from 9.15am to 12.15pm.

The enrolment evening for Colaiste Dun an Ri is on Tuesday 13th November from 7 to 9pm, please ensure you bring your child’s PPS No. and a copy of their Birth Certificate on the night.

Credit Union Art:  Congratulations to Nadine McKenna whose entry came 3rd in the Age 7 and under category in the recent Art competition.

Building/Supervision:  We hope to start building in the new year.  The hall will likely be used as a classroom for the remainder of the year. This obviously impacts the school in a number of ways.  One is that the hall can’t now be used to keep all the students in on a wet morning.  We would remind parents not to drop children at school at an inappropriately early time.  Supervision is provided from 9:10am or when the bus arrives- whichever is earlier.
