This Week at River Oaks

Welcome to May - it’s hard to believe that we’re in May already but we welcome the warmer weather!

We had a great time celebrating International Day of Dance over 3 days as each class in the school spent some ‘grooving’ with Danny from Experience Groove.  This is the feedback we received about our wonderful school community: ALL of the students (and staff!) amazed us with their open minds, creative spirits and expressive enthusiasm while on the Groove dance floor.

This coming week we have our Awards Assembly (Wednesday) and Burgundy and Grey Day (Thursday) which is our track and field day for Grades 3-8, We use these results to form our track and field teams to compete for River Oaks later in the month. Rain day, if needed,  for Burgundy and Grey Day will be announced.
