Weekly Announcements, October 9th, 2018

Hello! This is Ms. McGrath contacting you with the weekly announcements for Raiders and their families.
We have a short but busy week ahead of us here at the school. Today and tomorrow we are being visited by the “Code Mobile”. All of our students will be getting a chance to learn more about computer programming. If you are interested, you can check out their website at:
Thursday is picture retake day at RVMS. Students who were absent, or those who have a returned proof with parent signature will be called down for retakes in the morning. If your child is having a retake, please return the order form, with the proof included, as soon as possible. Photography Flewwelling with likely be looking to pick up the orders next week.
Friday is Gr.  7 Immunization day with all Gr. 7 students being offered DPt and HPV vaccinations. Families of Gr. 7 students are reminded to encourage their child to eat a good breakfast on Friday and to wear short sleeves or sleeves that can easily be rolled up.
I did want to remind families that, if your child is going to be absent, you should enter the absence in our Safe Arrivals program. This will stop the system from calling you to tell you that your child is absent because the system will recognize that you have acknowledged the absence.

 It is also a good idea to go to our website and register your child for “Cashless Schools”. Simply click on the “Make a Payment” button on the black navigation bar and it will walk you through the registration process. You can even set the system to notify you when an item has become available for your child that requires a payment. The District is moving towards an online only payment system for all school fees and purchases. In the upcoming weeks we will be posting the Gr. 8 trip payments, Ski Club payments and basketball team payments to the “Cashless Schools” system and we will not be taking cash payments for these items.
