Parents & PAC Royal Oak Review @ noon:

Office staff are spending an increasing amount of time delivering messages, supplies and food to students.  With a big school of 600 students, this can sometimes take up a large portion of the day.

Of course, we understand, that on occasion things need to be delivered to the school and are happy to accommodate.  However, we ask parents to avoid making this a daily occurrence.  One of the key aspects of middle school learning is personal responsibility.   Sometimes, much learning occurs when things are forgotten.  We are always here to support, but please keep this in mind regarding communication with your son/daughter during the school day.

Many Thanks

Carly Hunter  

Next Week: Just a reminder that there is no school November 11 – Remembrance Day or November 12 and 13 – Non-Instructional Days.
