This Week at River Oaks

We have some sad news we want to share with our community: Our deepest condolences to one of our Lunch Supervisors, Martha, on the passing of her husband, Peter. This was shared with us by a community member:  “Peter was the unofficial 'Mayor of River Oaks' and the long time crossing guard at Munn's and River Oaks Blvd for many many years. He lived just steps from the school,and has watched out for students and the community for decades.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with Martha and her family.

Important Kindergarten Registration Information: If you have children currently attending River Oaks and have a younger child eligible to register for Kindergarten for September 2019 and you live North OR South of Dundas, please come into the office to register by March 1, 2019.
