Weekly Messages, October 23



Good afternoon! This is a message for all Raiders and their families.

1.  We continue to take every opportunity to teach our students the appropriate use of         cellphones. Please review the cellphone policy (attached) with your child and encourage them to use their phones responsibly.

        You can also support us by not texting or calling your child during the school day,        or having a plan in place where they will only reply to your messages at appropriate times      (lunch, after school etc.).

2.       Our first dance of the year is scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday, October 24 from 6-8 pm.

      -Halloween costumes are allowed but no masks or weapons of any kind.

      -Students must have indoor shoes in a bag, or in their hands, when they arrive at the door.

      -Cost is $5. A limited canteen with popcorn and water for $1 will be available.

      -No water bottles, drinks or liquids can be brought to the dance.

      -All school expectations apply.


3.   The Student Leaders at RVMS have been running a mobile library during Raider Time, bringing a cart of novels to homerooms for students to check out. This has proven to be a great success in promoting literacy and having students browse for good fit books. To coincide with the mobile library, the Student Leaders will also be running a scholastic book club. A various times throughout the year, brochures will be available to students. We have approximately 100 packets, therefore not enough brochures for the entire school. They can be viewed online as well at

            For students wishing to purchase from the book orders, they have the option of returning          cheque or cash, or purchasing online. The guide to creating a parent account can be    found on the scholastic website under 'Parent', you simply need to search for the school and teacher (Ms. Natalie McCluskey) and add in your personal details. Then you have the ability to shop and purchase online. Due dates for orders will be placed on the school morning announcements. 

                All rewards through this program will be sent directly to the mobile library for purchase of a variety of novels for our students. Any questions can be directed to Ms. McCluskey, the student leader advisor. Thank you for your support in promoting literacy at RVMS. 

4.       The Babysitting course is completely full and begins this week. We will run another session after Christmas to accommodate those on the wait list.


-Pay your student fee online. If you have already paid, THANK YOU!

-Send a fork or spoon with your child’s lunch…finger eating of soup is not fun!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at or, on my direct line, at 738-6511.

General school inquiries, please call 738-6500.
