Hot Chocolate Friday

We were delighted to have our first hot chocolate Friday this week. Teachers chose one child from each class who had gone over and above this week in helping others.

It has been a FOMPS tradition for a long time to display the school bunting at the summer fair. This has been made over the years by the addition of a piece of bunting made specifically by, with or for your child. Please use the attached template to make one for your child if you have not already done so and hand them into the office by June 20th. Cloth bunting is preferred as it will last a lot longer if the weather is inclement (which of course will not be the case this year!).
