February 18 - 22 , 2019

This Week at River Oaks

Volunteer Opportunity: We have a wonderful opportunity for volunteers to help with a Grade 1 Reading program.  If you are interested, have your police check/vulnerable sector screening, and would like more information, please email with your interest and availability.  We’ll be setting up a meeting after March Break with our Grade 1 Reading Volunteers to outline the program.

Bus cancellations: We have certainly had some interesting weather this month!!! We want to remind our families that when buses are canceled in the morning, they are canceled for the entire day.  If you drive your children to school, you will need to arrange for their ride home. For those parents picking up children on bus cancelation days, we ask that you meet them at the back of the school on the blacktop.

Lost and Found: Our lost and found is out in front of the library.  Please take a look before it leaves on Friday February 22!

Save the Date: Our Grade 8 Graduation ceremony will happen on Thursday June 27th. Stay tuned for more details…...
