The Rideau Report
"Be the change you wish to see in the world." Mahatma Gandhi
With all the rain and warmer temperatures in April, it seems like all of a sudden the green-ness of Spring has hit. As we see the changes in nature all around us, Rideau too will focus on Change this month with our students.
At our assembly later this month, we will begin "Make Change" month with our students. Divisions will choose a project or charity that means something to them, in our local community, and we will see how a dedicated effort can help make a positive change. We are excited to see the impacts we can have in our community, building off the successes of our Pitch-In Kingston day and other environmental activities in April.
In our classrooms we continue to work hard, heading into the final stretch of the year. Students in grades 3 and 6 will complete the annual EQAO assessments later this month, and all of our students will begin culminating tasks in their various subjects. It is amazing to see the growth and learning that has taken place over the year, and we are very proud of where the students are now.
We continue to work to make our communications with families as effective as possible. We hope this newsletter, our website, and the Limestone App are all steps in that direction, and we are interested in your feedback. You can always email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school at 613-546-5901.
