Hello RC Mac Students and Parents

"Long time no see"... This expression seems appropriate given that other than the parade we haven't seen each other in over one month!

Luckily I know that you're all SAFE AT HOME and that makes me smile each and everyday. I also see all the school assignments you are submitting on Teams and FreshGrade. Keep up the super effort!

The background photo of this newsletter shows some skateboards. I encourage everyone - kids, parents, pets - to take extra time outside exercising. We need to balance the screen time with outdoor action time. Driving around the neighborhood I see lots of people on bikes, scooters, trampolines, swings and practicing hockey passes. All good stuff!

Fortunately this year we will have a school year book. The yearbook is produced by Photo Express and will include the formal student photos plus candid photos from our school year and a special section showcasing our wonderful Grade 5 students. This is an optional order for families and more I will have more information coming soon. RC Mac Staff will be working with Photo Express to make it an extra special book celebrating our school community.

Take care and stay healthy,

Mrs. Roberts
