Literacy/Numeracy Assessments this week - schedule

School Bus cards have arrived. Students must pick them up from the front office and sign for them. We are hopeful to have received a card for everyone that registered. At the end of the week, I will send an email to transportation of any names who did not receive a card. If you received an email from transportation stating your child was approved but did not receive a card, please forward it to me so I can include it. In the meantime, students should take the bus to and from school.

With our continued partnership with the Saanich Police Community Engagement Division, we provide resources for parents and youth in our community through a variety of workshops and seminars. Join Saanich Youth Services in partnership with Saanich Police for a FREE Gang Education & Trends Seminar. This is an opportunity for parents and caregivers to better understand the trends police are seeing in our community.  In this workshop, participants will have the chance to ask all the questions they need to. Hear all the up-to-date information from police officers and youth workers in our community. Everyone from all walks of life and all corners of the community are welcome. Friday, November 17, 6:30-8:30 at Royal Oak MIddle School. Registration Link
