Attention: Gr 5 Parents coming into ROMS

Dear Gr 5 Parents,

I would like to invite you to attend our final Royal Oak PAC meeting of the year on Thurs, June 20th from 6-8pm.  Normally our PAC meets at 7pm, but we are going to be available at 6pm to meet with you to answer any questions you may have about the transition to middle school, and to give you a tour of the school.  The PAC exec will also be available to chat about opportunities to get involved  at Royal Oak (in whatever way it works with your schedule).  We hope you'll join us for this special opportunity to connect and learn a more about the school and our wonderful PAC!

Looking forward to seeing you,

Karen MacEwan
