Dear families & friends,
Welcome back to Felixstow Primary School 2023!
It has been a smooth and positive start to the year at Felixstow. We had 13 new Receptions join us, along with a few new faces in our other classes. We welcome all our new families and hope you have all settled into life at Felixstow.
The first four weeks of the year we always have a focus on building our school and classroom culture. This year we have started with a strong focus on building our Berry St practices into predictable learning routines and just what we do, along with revisiting growth/fixed mindset thinking, zones of regulation and global competencies! We will be sharing some of this learning at our Acquaintance night and throughout the year with families.
Acquaintance night & AGM
We are looking forward to seeing everyone at our Acquaintance Night and AGM this evening, Tuesday 21st February. The evening is planned as follows:
5.30—5.55 Meet with class teachers in their class to find out more about your child’s class
6.00—6.55 Visit each station and grab a free sausage
7.00 – 7.30 Meet in the Hub for the A.G.M.
Our name change signage happened over the break and we are now in the process of updating everything else, like our Facebook page, website, policies and documentation, street signage and advertising, to reflect our new name.
NAPLAN has moved to earlier in the year from this year. Students in Year 3 & 5 will sit these assessments over week 7 and 8 in Term 1.
We are excited about the year ahead after a few tricky years managing Covid for everyone. We intend to have a focus on building connection and community for our students. We are hoping to get our volunteer program up and running again so check information in this newsletter, tonight and keep an eye out for regular updates via Skoolbag and SeeSaw about opportunities to get involved.
We look forward to a positive and productive year ahead with everyone and hope to see many of you brave the heat to come to our first event this evening.
Cheers Skye 😊
