Lapwood Lambs - Halloween Party...

"Dress to scare" and "bring and share"...our Little Lambs are having a halloween party on Monday (21st October) and we would love you to join us; children are welcome to dress up (spookier the better) and we would thought it would be a nice idea to bring and share some goodies i.e. cakes, crisps, cookies - pumpkin pies welcome! We look forward to seeing you...

School Uniform "Swap Shop"...

Please come along to the launch of our new school uniform swap shop, where you can save your pennies and the environment.  It will be taking place on Wednesday 23rd October at 3:15pm in the school hall.  If you are unable to attend on the day and if you have any outgrown or unwanted uniforms (clean and in a reasonable condition, thank-you), please bring along to the labelled collection bin which will be located in the foyer by the school office. Please look out for the fliers that will be sent out via the children.  We look forward to seeing you.

Come and play with Dudley Performing Arts...

All students, parents and friends of our school are invited to bring their musical instruments and take part in a one-off session with staff from Dudley Performing Arts; the session is aimed all instrumentalists regardless of experience.  To take part simply stay behind after school on Thursday 24th October with your instruments - please refer to the letter sent out via the children earlier this week, thank-you.

Pumpkin Carving Competition...

Let your creative juices flow...inspire your children with some spooktacular scary pumpkin creations.  On Friday 25th October, the school council will be hosting a pumpkin carving competition.  Children should carve their pumpkin at home and bring them into the hall during Friday registration. It will be £1 to enter a pumpkin and money raised will go towards the charity Muscular Dystrophy UK.  All the pumpkins will be judged and a prize will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place during the achievement assembly. The School Council want to say a huge 'thankyou' for your support!
