RVMS Babysitting Handout.pdfRVMS Babysitting Handout.pdf

Good morning! We have a few messages for all Raiders and their families.

Our students have settled into the regular school routines and we are all hard at work preparing for the first Report Cards which go home next month. The year is flying by!

A few important items:

1. We are struggling with some students who continue to be physically aggressive with each other. We want to remind all Raiders and their families that we do not accept this behaviour. Raiders always respect the personal space of others. They must also respect and understand that there is no such thing as “play fighting” or “joking around”.  We do not hit, poke, grab or kick. We do not seek to embarrass or humiliate each other by trying to touch or grab private areas. This is always unacceptable behaviour regardless of the intent.

Please review this expectation with your child as we will continue to reinforce this expectation at school.

2. Regular hours of school are 8:40-3:10. Many Raiders can earn the privilege of leaving early or attending an ASAP activity. They are expected to be in regular attendance until 3:10 if required. This may mean that they need to attend “Workroom” for lost or missing assignments, unsigned homework or tests, or simply because they missed time and need to catch up on their schoolwork. Please plan for your child to be able to attend school until the end of the school day (3:10) if necessary.

3. We are still looking for a few Student Fees to be paid. Please check Cashless Schools and pay your school fees if you have not already done so.

4. We are offering a babysitting course at RVMS. Please see the attached flyer and register on the website indicated if you are interested.

5. Our fist dance of the year is set for next week, Thursday, October 24 from 6-8 pm. We do not wear Halloween Costumes during the regular school day at RVMS, but school appropriate costumes are welcome at the dance.  The cost is $5 and indoor shoes are required and must be with the child at the door.

6. Forks and spoons are in short supply at RVMS. Please send these items with your child if they require them at lunch. We do not stock these items and many students have had an interesting time eating Kraft Dinner without them!

7. Picture Retake day is next Monday, October 21. All students who returned their original proof requesting a retake, and any students absent on the first picture day, are eligible to have their picture taken.

As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at
