Buddy Day - On Friday February 24th, we will be having our annual Buddy Day!  This year, motivational speaker Sarah Westbrook will be joining us to  lead our students through an inspiring message about perseverance and building a safe and welcoming school community.  Our students will then be put into mixed groups to  rotate through engaging Buddy Day Activities.

PINK Shirt Day - On Wednesday February 22nd, we encourage our River Oaks Community to wear PINK in support of PINK Shirt day, to raise awareness for bullying.  Be sure to dress your students in PINK to support our inclusive and safe schools initiative.

 Dance-A-Thon - Our Valentine’s Day dance-a-thon was a HUGE  hit!  The kids had a fabulous time dancing away.  The purpose of the fundraiser was to raise funds to support the construction of an outdoor classroom. We are looking forward to seeing how much money we raised!  Any donation, no matter how small, were be greatly appreciated. All donations of $20.00 or more are eligible for a tax receipt.

***Please note: A full and complete address, including postal code must be recorded on the pledge form in order for a tax receipt to be issued.

Students who send in their pledge forms and the accompanying funds by Tuesday, February 14th will have their name entered into a raffle for:

  • Dinner for four at Swiss Chalet
  • 4 Theatre Tickets with Snacks
  • 2 Golf passes at Tyandaga Golf Course
We will have our draw by Wednesday February 22nd and we will announce our winners!

We will accept cash and cheques but would prefer, if possible, that you submit donations on cashlessschools.com. Please make any cheques payable to River Oaks Public School.

Morning Entry - Here at River Oaks, we believe in building a strong sense of community and culture that fosters well being and student engagement. Thank you to all of you for making the effort in getting your children to school on time.  There has been a noticeable decrease in late arrivals, as well as a decrease in parking lot congestion and issues.

River Oaks Skates - Our Primary Students will be going skating over the next few months.  If you would like to join the classes, please make sure you have a current Criminal Reference Check completed.  Parent volunteers are always welcome.
