• Please remember to drop your children off on Madson Road rather than at the front entrance of the school. Thank you.
• Please send a spare set of clothes to school with your child in case they get wet at recess or lunch. It has been very rainy lately so it is important to send them to school with rain gear.
• We have decided to celebrate “Family Day” this year rather than specifically Mother or Father’s Day. The school will no longer be making gifts or cards for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. This is due to the diversity among our Ruth King families and the wish on our part to lessen the anxiety for some of our children. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

PAC MESSAGE: The spring dance is coming up on March 6th and the PAC is asking for parent volunteers to make the event a success. If you are available for a shift or two please sign up here:https://signup.com/mobileweb/2.0/vspot.html?activitykey=237013184952972056#anonymous_invite_page
