Welcome To River Oaks Public School

I would like to welcome students and parents to a new year at River Oaks Public School. We are especially excited to welcome several new families to our wonderful school community this year!

At River Oaks we recognize that it takes a community to create the optimal learning environment for your children. The full cooperation of parents, teachers, and other individuals is required for students to experience success. When the school, home and community work together our students will be able to reach their full potential. The best way to ensure this cooperation is through regular open communication. As we have moved away from paper agendas, your child’s teacher will be in touch with you about how regular communication will happen.

Our school is a Tribes school. Tribes is a process that creates a culture which maximizes learning and human development. In our school, students, staff, and the community commit to using these positive agreements:

  • Attentive Listening

  • Appreciation/No Put-downs

  • Right to Pass/Responsibility to Participate

  • Mutual Respect

The practice of these agreements has become an important part of our caring school community climate and we hope that you will reinforce them at home.

The vision of River Oaks continues to focus on the following:

  • Enriching student talents through co-curriculars

  • Improving students’ learning and attitudes to health active living

  • A School Council involved in climate building and support to students and staff

  • A committed and active parent volunteer group

  • A caring, safe and positive environment

  • Students who care about learning and strive to do their best!

We look forward to continuing to build on our existing traditions as well as exploring whatever new ideas will enrich our students’ growth academically, emotionally and socially. Your support is critical to your child’s success and we invite you to get involved in school life at River Oaks. I encourage you to join School Council or get involved as a volunteer in the many activities that we will have throughout the year. Watch our school website at for the latest updates.

Yours truly,

Lois Braunberger
