Hello Parents/Guardians,

Thank you to all the parents who came out to support the grade 4’s during their “Young Entrepreneurs Expo” and for all the parents who came out to cheer for their child and the Ruth King basketball team during the Jamborees last week.  The students played hard and did an amazing job.  Thank you also to the coaches.

The time changed this weekend so you may find that everyone is just a little more tired.  Please try to get your children to bed a little earlier this week, to make up for the lost hour.  It is important that you try to get your child to school on time.  All those lost minutes do add up.  Have a great week everyone!

Reminders:

  • The hot lunch program is available to everyone. *If you need financial assistance in order for your child/children to participate in this program, please contact the school regarding our payment options.
  • Please make sure to wait outside for your child afterschool, rather than coming into the school. The teachers find this to be the best as it does not cause distractions when trying to get their entire class ready for dismissal.
  • We are continually looking for volunteers for the “One to One Reading Program.” Please contact Ms. V. Ives if you have some spare time to read with kids or if you know someone with some spare time.
 
 

The “Before School Care Program” which is run out of our gym has had a surge of popularity and therefore we are now going to require that you register your child for the program so that we can keep track of who is using it.  We will start taking attendance next week and contact you directly to have you fill out forms for the program.  At the moment, there is no cost to the program and Superstore kindly donates much of the food that is used for the breakfast portion of the program.  At the moment, we only have two staff members and we need to track how many students are using the program so that we can make the appropriate changes to ensure the safety of all children and adults in the program.

As a side note, only Ruth King students should be attending this “Before School Program.”
