These monthly blogs will take the place of a monthly newsletter in order that information is kept current and up to date.
We may also send home a "Power Announcement" to highlight important and/or special events at the school. Should you "unsubscribe" to these notifications you will not receive any further non emergent "Power Announcements", until the alert preferences settings have been "enabled" or "subscribed" to again by the Parent.
Reminder for those students that arrive late at school after the start of the school day - 8:30 AM - are to enter through the main entrance. There is a "doorbell" in place for students to ring or they may knock on the front door to alert office personnel.
The following is a list of the student school wide confirmed April 2021 events at RES. This list may change as events are added or changed and/or deleted and so we encourage you to check back to this post often. As well, all events and changes will be posted on our school calendar, and RES Facebook and Twitter pages. Individual classroom teachers may have other activities planned that are not posted. Please note that as dates expire each week the information will be placed at the bottom of the list so that the current applicable dates and information are available to you.
