Community Support at RMS
This week, we received two
new additions to our school:
long-awaited bike racks have arrived. They are located on the front bus
pad. We encourage all students to walk or bike to school if they can.
Thank-You to the Town of Riverview, last year we reached out to the
Town of Riverview regarding the need for bike racks. The Town of
Riverview made a donation to the school to help cover part of the
cost for the much-needed bike racks.
- Thank-You to the Rotary Club of Moncton
for the installation of the Little Free Library®. This past week a Little
Free Library was installed on the front step of RMS, at the Devere Road
entrance. The Riverview Community, our students, staff, and families are
encouraged to visit the Library and “Take a Book, Return a Book”. The Rotary
Club of Moncton wants to improve access to books and increase literacy
awareness in our community. Each unit will have an official charter number issued
by the Little Free Library® organization and will be included on their
global list of libraries.

Our first fundraiser of the school year will be launched on Oct 8th.
The RECIPES IN A JAR fundraiser will run from Oct. 8th to Oct. 23rd,
2020. This year, purchases will be made online only by
following the link below : riverviewmiddle.recipesinajar.ca/
The success of last year’s fundraiser and feedback about the recipes in a jar
products were so positive that we are excited to partner with the company
again. What we are most excited about, is that we have partnered
with a socially responsible fundraising company. For every jar sold, one meal
will be donated to the lunch program. Last year RMS was recognized for their
contribution of 1842 meals donated to local food banks. This is a great
initiative to help support RMS while also supporting our community
and local food banks.
Attached is the Flyer that you can share with family members or friends
to promote the school fundraiser. This is a no contact fundraiser and all orders
are to be placed online.
Dates to remember:

If testing is not required, they can return once fever (with no medications)
and other symptoms have been resolved for 24 hours or if they have been
directed to do so by a health care professional. If tested, Public Health will
