Our Pupil Council have organised this to support MacMillan's "World's Biggest Coffee Morning" campaign on Friday 30th September. It will begin at 10am and finish at 11.30am. Please come along with a friend and enjoy some company over tea, coffee and cakes! Donations will be taken on the day. If you can contribute any cakes or homebaking, please hand this into the school office on Thursday or Friday.
A wee reminder that Crawforddyke's Bank of Smiles, which is part of South Lanarkshire Credit Union, is open on a Friday morning to put money into your account. If you want to open an account please contact the Savvy Savers staff at school for an application form.
Family and friends came to school on Tuesday night to see the children of Angus and Caldwell houses perform the songs they had learned with Rookie Rockstars, click here for photos of the event. Everyone had a great time dressing up as rock stars, special thanks to the family rappers who were all marvellous. We can't wait until Thursday for Cameron and Ramage to do their performance. Some tickets are still available from the school office.
Lots of the Primary One parents came along to a curriculum workshop on 13th September. If you need further information or were unable to attend click here to see the presentation.
It has been brought to my attention that some parents/carers have been driving along the path at the back of the school to park beside the skate park. This is obviously a concern as many of our pupils walk this route to get home. The safety of our pupils is of paramount importance to us and, while we have no control over where parents/carers park outside, we would ask that care is taken along routes where children will be present.

All home safe and sound from Lockerbie, what a fantastic week everyone had lots of pictures to see (click here for the link).
We are looking forward to seeing all of our pupils again when we return to school on Monday 15th August. It's rumoured that the sun is going to make an appearance for us - we are all keeping our fingers crossed!
Over the summer our staffing was confirmed, so there have been a couple of changes:
Primary 4, Room 6: Mrs. Lesley Cullen
Cover in Room 1 (Friday afternoon) and 4 (Thursdays): Mrs. Kathryn Orr
CCC Teacher: Mrs Gill Frullani
We have 50 Primary 1 children starting with us on Monday. They should arrive at the front door for 9.30am and come in with their parent. They can be collected at the front door again at 12pm. From Tuesday, they should come into their own playground in time for the bell at 9am and will be discharged from their cloakroom door at 12.15pm. Full days begin on Monday 22nd August!
Before the summer, you were made aware of the new procedure where parents, carers or older siblings should not enter the playground. Children should come into school via the P1, side or back gates and make their way to their class lines when the bell rings at 9am. Members of staff will be present at all gates and in the playground in case any help is needed! Children will be dismissed as normal at 3pm, please make sure they know which gate to meet you at if you are collecting them.
As ever, we are in for a busy year and I look forward to seeing all of you again very soon.

At the Parents' Night in March the school sought the views of parents, we appreciate everyone who took the time to complete the questionnaire, those views are vital to help the school improve. - Click here to see the results of the survey.,
