The Rideau Report
"The start of something new brings the hope of something great." - author unknown
It has been so great to see everyone getting back to learning at Rideau! Our staggered entry has allowed us to practice our new routines and safety protocols in small groups, and we are ready to have our full cohort back next week. Thanks to all our families for all the work you have done preparing our children at home - they have been great!
September is always a busy time, and a lot of information is coming home. We try to make our communications with families as effective as possible. All email communication will be done through School Messenger this year, so please ensure that we have your correct email address on file at school. Our website: https://rideaupublicschool.limestone.on.ca/ also has our newsletters, a school calendar, and other useful information. Twitter is another way to keep up with what's happening at Rideau. Follow us @RideauPS_LDSB . You don't even need a Twitter account to follow us! Just Google @RideauPS_LDSB and you can see our Twitter feed. You can always get in touch with us through email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the school at 613-546-5901. Thank you for your continued support of the work we do every day!

School Council News
Our School Council wants YOU to be involved in life at Rideau. School Council is a dedicated group of parents, guardians, and staff who meet monthly to discuss issues related to school, advise the principal on a variety of matters, and organize fundraisers and other special events to bring the community together. You can find out more about council at our annual Meet and Greet event, Wednesday, Sept. 16 at 6:30 p.m. That is followed by our Annual General Meeting, Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 6:30 p.m., to fill our executive and member positions. We are meeting outside at the Outdoor Classroom this year, so dress for the weather and bring a lawn chair as seating is limited! We hope you can join us!
