Here are two announcements sent by the school for your information:
1. Deeper Learning Parent Night
We hope that you will join us on Thursday, November 7th at 7:00pm for our Elementary Deeper Learning Parent Night. This will be an important evening of learning and information that we encourage parents to attend.
We kindly request that you use this link to RSVP. We want to ensure that we have prepared sufficient materials for those in attendance.
Please note that there will be no childcare provided and that the evening is not suitable for children.
If you would like more information about the evening, you can watch this video.
We hope to see you there!
2. Remembrance Day Poppies
This Friday, Chapel will be focusing on Remembrance Day. Each student will be given the opportunity to wear a poppy. These poppies are from the Royal Canadian Legion and a small donation is encouraged for the Legion that supplied RCS with these poppies. We encourage you to talk with your child about Remembrance Day and its significance. If you desire, please have your child bring a small coin donation for the poppies that they will be receiving on Friday. We look forward to supporting those that have sacrificed in a meaningful manner for our freedoms as we honour our veterans.

I have a few important messages to pass along your way.
- Recess Parent Supervisors Needed:
There are so many great reasons to sign up and be paid to be at RCS. This year we have switched when we need Parent Volunteers to ONLY be at Morning Recess.Why is that so great? It is great because Parent Supervisors have less students at one time to supervise because we have two 15-minute morning recesses. The first recess from 10:30-10:45 and has the Kindergarten to Grade 3. The second recess has only the Grade 4’s and 5’s. Our deep hope is students and supervisors will have greater success during these distinct playtimes. What a great way to be connected, help the school and get some Starbuck’s money on the side.
We are looking for at least 15 parents who speak English and can commit from September to June for at least one time per week during the 10:15-11:15 time period. Currently we have our busy and over committed teachers covering the morning recess supervision in addition to their before, after school and lunch supervisions. Please email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Elementary Office to sign up and become involved as a Parent Recess supervisor.
- School Photos – Wednesday, September 18th:
