Welcome To River Oaks

Welcome To River Oaks Public School

I would like to welcome students and parents to a new year at River Oaks Public School. I share your enthusiasm and excitement as this new school year begins and look forward to celebrating the learning of our students with you.

At River Oaks we recognize that it takes a community to create the optimal learning environment for your children. The full cooperation of parents, teachers, and other individuals is required for students to experience success. When the school, home and community work together our students will be able to reach their full potential. The best way to ensure this cooperation is through regular open communication.

Our school is a Tribes school. Tribes is a process that creates a culture which maximizes learning and human development. In our school, students, staff, and the community commit to using these positive agreements:

  • Attentive Listening

  • Appreciation/No Put-downs

  • Right to Pass/Responsibility to Participate

  • Mutual Respect

The practice of these agreements has become an important part of our caring school community climate and we hope that you will reinforce them at home.

River Oaks has maintained this vision over the years:

  • Enriching student talents through co-curriculars

  • A focus on improving students’ learning and attitudes to health active living

  • A School Council involved in climate building and support to students and staff

  • A committed and active parent volunteer group

  • A caring, safe and positive environment

  • Students who care about learning and strive to do their best!

We look forward to continuing to build on our existing traditions as well as exploring whatever new ideas will enrich our students’ growth academically, emotionally and socially. Your support is critical to your child’s success and we invite you to get involved in school life at River Oaks. I encourage you to join School Council or get involved as a volunteer in the many activities that we will have throughout the year. Watch our school website at http://riv.hdsb.ca for the latest updates.

Yours truly,

Trixie Vasilakos
