January 14 - 18, 2019


We had a great first week back!! Clubs, practices, and rehearsals are back in full swing - there is lots of excitement about good things for 2019.  Our theme at River Oaks is ‘Make a Difference’ so we’ve been focusing on doing things that make a difference. Last week our challenge was to say hi to someone we don’t normally say hi to and see what a difference that makes to our school.  There will be another ‘Make a Difference’ challenge coming up this week - ask your child(ren) what it is on Monday!

For those families involved with our upcoming Beauty and the Beast production, here is a link to the website with all kinds of important information: Check out our website for more info: https://sites.google.com/hdsb.ca/ropsbeautyandthebeast/home
