Care ~ Engage ~ Inspire

January 2021

Happy New Year!  Navigating the choppy waters of this pandemic has been challenging to say the least, but the RTCS community has done it with grace, patience, and courage.  When we look back at 2020, we may have many choice adjectives to describe our experiences, but not all of it has been bad.  From the beginning, our students have adapted to new expectations and have shown resiliency, kindness, and respect.  We have witnessed our staff come together to solve problems, collaborate on how to support our at home learners, model calmness in a time of uncertainty, and show gratitude for the little things.  We have so many things to be thankful for and we remain thankful to work at the best school with the best students, families and staff in the district!  Each year we set goals, visions and plan our year ahead.  As always here at RTCS we resolve to continue our tradition to CARE, to ENGAGE, and to INSPIRE.

On behalf of the staff at RTCS, we would like to say thank you for your continued support and as always, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher, or myself, if you have questions or would like to share.  RTCS is truly an amazing learning community and we are grateful for the gift to be learning alongside such wonderful students.

Ms. Erin McAstocker, Principal

The Chilliwack School District is pleased to offer an Integrated Arts and Technology opportunity at AD Rundle Middle School beginning September 2020 for students in grades 6 - 8. An integrated arts and technology approach encourages curiosity, open-mindedness, and a willingness to think “outside the box” within an interdisciplinary, collaborative learning environment.
