Newsletter for Parents September 2019

 

I welcome all pupils, parents and staff to school for the academic year 2019/2020.  I extend an especially warm welcome to our new Junior Infant pupil, Tom Cummins.  We look forward to a very busy year with many exciting learning opportunities for our pupils.   You can keep abreast of all the school activities on our website www.cullennstipp and Cullen Parents Association Facebook.

Reminders/Notices

 

  • Our focus for School Self Evaluation 2019/2020 is Oral Irish. Teachers endeavour to speak Irish incidentally throughout the day. We would encourage you to speak a ‘Cúpla focal’ at home. E.g Dún an doras, Suigh síos, Bí ciúin!!!  (Be quiet)
  • Dog poo has become a major problem on the school grounds. This is a serious issue with regard to the health and safety of the pupils.  Please keep dogs off the school grounds.
  • Keep a vigilant eye out for head lice every week and please contact the school secretary if there is an outbreak and parents will be alerted.
  • Please continue your support of healthy lunches in the school – good habits start young.
  • Keep a check on homework and ensure it is fully completed. This will enable you to keep up-to-date with your child’s progress and where they may be experiencing difficulty in any subject.

 

 

 

We hope that the school year 2019/2020 will be a happy and fruitful year for all of us.

 

 

Yours sincerely
