Summer Fete - considering a Russian theme (with the World Cup being hosted there).  Anyone with insight into the country and culture that could give us some suggestions.  

CO-OP LOCAL Community Fund

We have been selected for the Co-op Local Community Fund this year! We applied for funds to help build an outdoor classroom.   It runs until the end of October 2018.  How it works - Every time members shop at the Co-op, 1% of what they spend on selected own-brand products and services goes to the Co-op Local Community Fund.  They will also give us and the other causes in our community an equal share of the money they raise from sales of carrier bags.  Our cause is linked to TWO stores, one in Bush Hill Park and the other is on Lancaster Road and also the funeral care services.  If you already have a Co-op membership card, please go to the following website and register Raglan Schools Association as your chosen charity.  https://membership.coop.co.uk/causes/14008/  If you don't have a card - you can become a member easily by requesting a card at the shop and paying £1.  Then you would follow the process above to link to the RSA.  This is a fantastic opportunity so please help us raise as much as we can.

Boots Exchange
If your child needs a pair of astroturf, moulded or studded boots, they can grab a pair for free in the Yr5/6 playground every Friday afternoon.  Thank you so much to everyone that has donated a pair already.  If you have any boots that no longer fit your children, we would be very grateful for any donations.
