Trivia and reminder

The Trivia Night is on Saturday night - there's still room so come along!

We will be sorting prizes on Wednesday night at my place, if you can spare a couple of hours. If you need my address, please grab me at school or send me an email.

We'll need as many people as we can to help with the decorations on Saturday, so if you haven't already let us know you can help, please do.

Also, we need an auctioneer on the night. Are you, or someone you know, the perfect auctioneer? It's only a couple of items, and it's supposed to be fun, so we don't need a pro.

In other news, the forms for the cards and calendars with your kid's artwork on them have gone home. These make great Chrissy presents, so send your notes back in as soon as possible.

Personal reminder

So much stuff is happening at the moment - Trivia and Kids' Halloween next Saturday - get your notes and money in ASAP if you haven't already.

The Cards and Calendars note has gone home, please get those in as soon as you can too.

For people helping out with the Trivia - we were going to sort prizes and so on tomorrow, but not enough has actually arrived (despite lots being pledged) to do it tomorrow. Maybe Wednesday evening? What do those involved think? I can also do Thursday, as long as we start after 7:30pm.

Kath needs some help with the decorations - anybody up for that? (Sounds like fun to me, but I shall be making offerings to the technology gods in order for the audio visuals to work, and setting up the auction).

We also need an auctioneer for the kids' artwork. Could we get a volunteer? Or a nomination? Please?

I want to sincerely thank everyone who has helped so much already and everyone who has volunteered to help with what's left to come. I hope it'll be a great night for everyone.

Personal reminder

Aaaaand we're back.

I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays, and now we have just eight and a half weeks before the end of the year. In that time there are about 836 things on, so stay tuned to keep on top of it all.

No need to send recess tomorrow, it's children's week and the teachers are providing afternoon tea for the kids.

Wednesday is Crazy Hair Day - bring a gold coin and crazy up that hair.

Friday is... something.... Soccer skills! That's right.

In the mean time, we are selling tickets for the Trivia Night - a note will go home shortly so you can buy tickets and book your kids (and your friends' kids) in for the Halloween party babysitting.

Also, for anyone that's interested in the crafty days I've been hosting - there's one this Friday. Please let me know if you want to come along - 10am - 2pm (nominally) to do any crafty thing that takes your fancy.

That's my reminders for today. If you can think of anything else, stick it in the comments.

Halloween for the kids!

I promised info on what's on for the kids on Halloween while the adults are off at trivia - and here it is:

Moonbie St will be offering babysitting for $50 a family from 6:30pm - 11:30pm on 31st October. Kids are welcome to dress up in costume, or in pyjamas. There will be a torch light walk around the grounds and DVDs and beds for later. For those that will need some shut eye, pack PJs, sleeping bag and pillow.

And get this - they'll take 'em all! From birth up! (Modulo breastfeeding of course) They'll deal with nappies, bottles etc as required. They are professional childcare workers, so your kids are in good hands.

We'll take the bookings for this with the trivia night, and I suspect this may prove to be one of THE social events of the K-2 year.

Oh, and it is open to all and sundry - anyone on your table can make use of the service, they don't have to attend Yeo Park.

Once again, massive thanks to Kathrine for making this happen!

(and please correct or update anything I got wrong or forgot!)

End of term

This morning I have been asked to:
  • help write a speech and provide samples for it
  • provide chopped up fruit for building people
  • tune a ukelele (no, I have no idea how to tune a ukelele - at the talent assembly the badly out of tune ukelele will be my work)
  • turn up in the middle of the day to watch said out-of-tune ukelele
I take back what I said to Catherine yesterday, I am looking forward to the end of term.

Enjoy your holidays everyone!
