A big thank you to all the parents who turned out tonight and Tuesday to attend our Parents’ Evenings. We were delighted to see such a great turnout! Thank you…
To celebrate Book Week Scotland, we will be re-launching the Milton of Leys Library next week!
All the pupils will have the opportunity to visit the library and borrow books. We will continue to build on our collection over the course of the year, so if there is a series or author missing which your child really enjoys (and you think others would too!) then please let us know! Donations of pre-loved books are always welcome. Thank you to the families who have already kindly donated.
In addition, there will be lots of different activities and events happening throughout the school. These will be centered on sharing stories together.
P1-P3 will receive their “book bag” packs which are donated by the Scottish Government and the Scottish Book Trust to encourage reading at home. P1-P3 classes are celebrating this in different ways!
Bella-Books! – Wednesday 21st November 2018, 1.45pm-2.45pm
Nursery & P1A, P1B, P1/2
A festival of books and reading! There will be story-telling activities and the P1 children will be presented with their P1 Bookbug Bags to take home. All parents and carers are welcome!
Books and Buns – Friday 23rd November 2018

P2/3, P3, P3/4 at 2.00-2.45pm
Enjoy sharing a book with a tasty treat! There will also be an opportunity to visit the library and the children will be presented with their P2/P3 Read, Write, Count Bags! All parents and carers are welcome! Donations of home-baking are also welcome!
This is a reminder that our parents’ nights are on at school tomorrow, Tuesday 13th, from 3.15-5.35pm and on Thursday 15th from 5.00-8.00pm. As in previous years, all meetings will take place in the school gym hall, and parents are asked to enter the school through the doors outside the gym hall, opposite the MUGA steps.
During both sessions, parents and children are free to browse and purchase from the Book Fair which will be held at these times in the hall. Pupils will also have the chance to buy books in school on Thursday and Friday afternoon should they be unable to do so at one of the parents’ meetings. A percentage of all proceeds raised will be returned to the school to allow us to buy more books for children to read in class and for our soon-to-be re-launched library.
Also during the parents’ meetings you will have the chance to vote for the school’s chosen charity for the year. A short list of nominated charities has been drawn up from pupils’ suggestions and you will be able to help us choose by casting your vote when you are in the school.
We will have tea & coffee, and lost property will be on display for you to collect.
We look forward to welcoming you to MOL over the coming days!
There are a number of events for children and adults taking place across Highland as part of Book Week Scotland 2018 (Monday 19th November – Sunday 25th November 2018). Find out more on the website link below.
A BIG thank you to all the families who have been collecting the Scottish Sun “Books for Schools” tokens! As a school, we have collected a huge amount and they are still coming in!
We are pleased to tell you that we have reached the initial target of 3,500 tokens and will be claiming out free pack of books shortly! A special thank you to the Dillon family who have handed in a staggering amount of tokens over the past few weeks.
A very quick reminder that we will be coming round classes on Thu and Fri selling poppies for a small donation.
A quick reminder to any parents who have not yet signed up for next week’s Parents’ Night to do so as soon as possible.
