Welcome to The Park Street School PTA
The Parent Teacher Association is a committee of parents and staff, which supports the work of the school by providing:
- activities which will foster and develop relationships between staff, parents, governors and others associated with the school
- support for educational and social activities for children in order to enrich and extend the opportunities which can be made available
- funds for a range of additional resources
Chromebooks for Christmas Generosity
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported the Chromebooks for Christmas campaign. We have raised just over £3000, this is brilliant and far exceeds our initial expectations, so thank you again.
Park Street the Movie
Check out “Park Street the Movie” below which was created by the family and friends of Park Street.
And the Winners of the Park Street Quiz are …
There were about 20 teams altogether – congratulations to the Storming Stevensons, who came first with 62 points, followed by the Cosmo the Guinea Pig team (the Harding family) in second place with 61 points, and the Quiz Whizzes (The Dominiak family with a little hindrance from Mrs Hawker) who came third with 60 points.
Please see this week’s post in our Latest News for some great photographs below of the half-time challenge – dressing up a team member to look like the painting “Lady with an Ermine” by Leonardo di Vinci – and the Condiment Challenge – painting your team using condiments from your food cupboard!
How you can help the School
Save As You Shop
Amazon Smile: With more of us doing our Christmas shopping online this year, we thought it would be a good idea to help you help the school at the same time. When you link your Amazon account to our Friends of Park Street Amazon Smile account, Amazon will donate .5% of the cost of your shopping to the school.
Easyfundraising: We’ve registered Friends of Park Street C of E Primary School with #easyfundraising, which means over 4,000 shops and sites will now donate to us for FREE every time you use #easyfundraising to shop with them.
These donations will help SO MUCH, so please sign up to support us – it’s completely FREE and doesn’t take long.
Schoolfunds: We have also updated our Schoolfunds account, which is another portal you can use for your shopping while giving back to the school. Just click on the links and follow the steps to connect your accounts.
Teachers’ Wish List
Over the past few months, several parents have got in touch with us asking how they can say thank you to our hard-working teachers for everything they do for us and our children. We asked the teachers and TAs what kinds of things they would find most useful for their classrooms and they’ve put together an Amazon Wish List of their top picks, from playdough to books. Please click here to view and purchase items from the list.
Pre-Loved School Clothing Store
As previously mentioned, we have launched a second hand clothing store for Park Street branded PE items. Please email us for information on how to donate and/or purchase.
Keep in Touch
While we can’t go about our normal social lives in exactly the same way at the moment, we feel it’s so important to stay involved for you in order to keep our community alive and thriving.
As always, please keep in touch with any comments, questions, or suggestions at PTA@parkstreet.cambs.sch.uk
