This Week at River Oaks

December 3 - 7, 2018

Welcome to...

We are thrilled to announce that we have a Youth Settlement Specialist joining our River Oaks School Community.  If you are a newcomer to Canada and are looking for support or information, Mayda Al-Yas will be available at the school every Tuesday from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm. Contact the school and we’ll make sure to connect you with Mayda.

You may have noticed our ‘Giving Tree’ by the Main Office - thank you to our School Council for taking this on!  If you would like to be part of the Giving Tree, please take a paper ornament or, better yet, take a picture and leave the ornament for someone else to take, and purchase a gift card for that store.  Please bring the gift card to the office by December 14, with the amount of the gift card noted. Thank you for your generosity!!

Here is an important message regarding December 21st:
