It's back to school time and the look and feel of fall is in the air, we are ready for another great year at RVCS. With some reflection on the difficult year-end and wildfire stress over the last few months, we look forward to getting everyone back to school and ready for another awesome year. We are blessed to have been able to return to our homes and families after the evacuation. For that, we are truly thankful.
Keep in mind that our Awards and Certificates night will be held on September 17th at 6:30pm for all students and staff of last year.
As we say goodbye to our grade 7 classes this year, it means a new format for us here at Ridgeview. Being a grade 4-6 only. We are excited to start this new format and are well prepared for the changes that will come with it.
The 2019-2020 school year will be the start of our new Ridgeview S.T.R.O.N.G. Program that will specifically target our literacy and numeracy needs here at RVCS. School-wide, Targeted, Reading Outcomes and Numeracy Grouping will give us more staff resources to focus on our reading, writing and math programming and, we hope, improve these areas for all children like never before.
I have said many times that I am amazed with the students and the parents at Ridgeview and I don't doubt that your dedication to the education of your child will continue for the upcoming year.
Mr. Steeves and I along with all other staff have had a great summer break and we are quite confident that Ridgeview will remain an amazing place to be again this year. See you all soon!
