CHRISTMAS CARD ORDER - From Monday 21st October to Monday 11th November

It is time to get organised for Christmas and purchase your children's fantastic designs whilst raising money for Wood End School. This year we are offering for sale 5 products - Christmas Cards, Thank you cards, Gift Tags, Mugs and a Value Pack - all created from your child's design. 

From Monday 21st October a flyer will come home with your child in their bag. The flyer shows their design (created in school) and tells you exactly how to place your online order and make payment by visiting the Wood End School online shop. You will be able to view your child’s design by entering their unique pin code. 

DO NOT SEND FLYERS AND MONEY BACK TO THE SCHOOL OFFICE AS EVERYTHING IS NOW MANAGED ONLINE INCLUDING PAYMENT. 

When placing the order online, please carefully check your child’s name and class is spelt correctly - if you do not make changes your order will be printed as per the flyer.  

NB. After ordering you will receive an email confirmation: do check your junk email folder if you can't see it!

The Wood End online shop closes on 11th November 2019 so please ensure you place ALL orders before this date. The PTA will send reminders via the newsletter and class rep emails. 

Any questions or help required please email Lisa via PTA@woodend.herts.sch.uk who is co-ordinating the school order on behalf of the PTA.
