2S FOYER DISPLAY NEWS FLASH ELF ON THE SHELF Exciting news Santa has sent MPS our very own Scout Elf after reading the persuasive letters our students wrote requesting one. The Scout Elf arrived on Friday during a whole School assembly. The roar of excitement must have been heard at the North Pole. Before his magic starts to work he needs to be named, so each class went quickly t work thinking of names eventually “Buddy” was chosen. So far Buddy has caused mayhem in the office climbing all over the Christmas tree. What will he get up to next? Students have been writing him notes, drawing him pictures and asking some serious questions about life as an Elf, then posting them in the special mail box in the library by the Elf door. Look out for him each day to follow his adventures at our school. COMMUNITY LIAISON OFFICER’S NEWS Hi Everyone.
