River Oaks Update, March 27-31, 2017
It was a very busy first week back, thank you to all of you for making it a successful one! Our Making a Difference Assembly was AMAZING! Thank you SO much, Ms. McB and
Mrs. Shoupe-Joudrie for all the hard work that went into preparing the kids for such an incredible performance! It was fabulous to see our oldest learners so engaged and having such a great time up there. Congratulations to our Learning Skills and Kindness award recipients. We are certainly setting the stage for success here at River Oaks when we have SO many students earning these awards. This is a true testament of the community we build within our classrooms and within the school community as a whole. Thank you to our phenomenal staff and our River Oaks families for their continued commitment to engaging our students in learning.
Thank you to everyone who joined us to participate in our Family Math Night. We had engaging activities for families to participate in this year, and to learn with their children all about the exciting world of Numeracy. Thank you to Kristin Marshall for kicking off our evening with a wonderful presentation about math and how learning math has evolved. To our River Oaks families, we hope that you will continue to engage your children in authentic math exploration and to encourage a growth mindset for learning and living math.
Our Jump Rope for Heart day is set for Thursday April 13th. We will have our Kick-Off Assembly on Thursday March 30th. Brigitte will be joining us, from the Heart and Stroke Foundation to get the kids excited and ready to “jump!” Donation envelopes will be given to each student on that day to bring home. Get ready River Oaks community, to open your hearts to this worthy cause. A schedule of "jumping" will be sent home closer to the date, please join us if you can.
We are SO very grateful to our River Oaks community and our amazing volunteers. We are hosting Our Volunteer Tea on Thursday April 13th in the Library, to honour and thank our incredible volunteers. Invitations will be sent out to our volunteers closer to the date. Thanks you again to all of you, who donate your time and energy to making River Oaks the incredible school community that is it!

Equipment Donations - We have had many families ask about outdoor equipment for students to play with at recess. Every year we replenish our outdoor equipment, however, items do get lost or go missing. If you have gently used, or equipment that is in great shape, we are happy to accept donations at the school of soccer balls, basketballs and tennis balls. Thank you!
Looking forward to another great week at River Oaks
