This Week at River Oaks

Musical: What an amazing week we had with our production of Beauty and the Beast.  We have some very talented students at this school and we’re so proud of their accomplishments in putting on 6 performances last week!!! Some were onstage and others supporting offstage with props, sound, lighting - each person was vital to the success of the musical. Thank you! And thank you to our families and community members for coming out and supporting Musical Theatre at River Oaks - we appreciate your support so much.

Groove Experience: We’re thrilled to announce that we have Michelle Hillier coming to River Oaks to lead us in the ‘Groove Experience’ later this month in celebration of International Day of Dance (April 29th).  Each class in the school will take part in workshops with Michelle to explore movement. A schedule and more information to come!

Basketball: Congratulations to our Senior Girls for an amazing season - they are finished for this year. We are proud of the way they came together as a team - Well Done Girls!

Our Senior Boys continue on in the playoffs….

Multicultural Day: One of the things we love most about our community is its diversity! On Thursday April 25, we will specially celebrate that diversity.  We encourage students and staff to wear cultural or traditional clothing that day. The celebration will continue into the evening when we have our second Multicultural Evening.

River Oaks Public School and its School Council would like to invite all families and friends to take part in the River Oaks Multicultural Night. We need your help to bring the students some first-hand knowledge of the various cultures represented at our school and the broader community. The goal of this event is to celebrate our cultural diversity, embrace our differences, and have fun learning about the various cultures found in our own community.
           Event date: April 25th, 6:00 PM Set up. Doors open at 6:30 PM. Event ends 8:00 PM.
           Location: River Oaks Public School Gym
Students and their families attending will enjoy food, music, crafts, games and more! We hope to provide a unique opportunity for all families to get together and learn from each other. You can participate by hosting a table, volunteering or simply attending.
