The Rideau Report
"In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt." Margaret Atwood
It looks like Spring is finally here, after a tumultuous March which saw rain, snow, sun, and everything in between. Students are excited to be back outside in the sunshine, and many of our classes are running the track daily, trying to complete a marathon, half-marathon, or just getting fit and having fun.
Our Student Action Team led a Character Assembly last week, with a focus on honesty and integrity. We are encouraging students to notice and name instances of these important characteristics, and are tracking our success on our 'Défi de l’intégrité' board in the main hallway.
We have lots of other student groups active this month. Our Eco-Club, under the direction of Mme Orgee, is pushing forward with new recycling initiatives, and a refocusing of our Boomerang Lunch program (see below). Our Colour House Leaders, under the direction of Mme Kennedy, are planning another activity block on April 24, so be sure to wear your colours and show your spirit. We also have our basketball teams picked and starting games, and our road race team beginning practices. Our chess club has its tournament, and our yearbook club is busy documenting it all in our annual keepsake, which will be sold this month.
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.
