February has been a month of hard work and tremendous learning at RTCS, despite the weather that Mother Nature sent our way. We celebrated our Grandparents with a spectacular luncheon and assembly. Our “Ready, Set, Learn” event, aimed at welcoming our pre-kindergarten learners, was also a terrific success. The Reptile Guy was out to visit our elementary divisions and some of our Gr. 5/6 classes hosted a sensational Entrepreneurship Fair. On Feb. 22nd we demonstrated our stand against bullying by sporting pink shirts and we hosted guest speaker Kevin Brooks who provided students with a message of: never give-up, encourage others and do your best. In addition to all of this learning, our staff took part in professional development on Feb. 24th with a focus on the new curriculum.
We open the month of March with the implementation of a Breakfast Program, Winter Activity Day for our Middle School, the Read-A-Thon for Elementary students and our Grade 9’s are course planning for High School. During March, many classrooms will also be exploring the virtue of Service.
With two weeks until March Break, we know that students are looking toward those learning experiences that occur during this time outside of school. We are wishing all of our RTCS families a wonderful and restful break.
