New School Construction
Construction is underway on the new school.  Please feel free to take a moment to look at the plans on the front counter in the office.  Bicycle racks have been moved to either side of the Office doors. Please encourage your child to use the racks provided.  The railing along Squirrel Street is being removed for new light stands.
You will notice new “No Parking” signs posted along Big Horn.  For your child’s safety, please avoid picking up or dropping off your child on Big Horn Street.  This street is being used for access to the site by construction vehicles.

Right from the Start
Right from the Start is looking for your HELP! We are needing you to take a few minutes to fill out these TWO surveys. One helps our funders from the province see all of the great work we are doing in the schools and will help support us with continued funding in the years to come.  The other one is specific to the RFTS programming that is being done in your child's school.
We know how busy parents are and we appreciate your time in doing these. Please take the time to fill these out. The surveys are closing soon.
