Gosh, I hate it when I make mistakes...Shocking, I know!
After some inquiry, I have confirmed that Friday, January 26th is a Non-Instructional Day.
There will be no school on Friday, January 26th.
Report Cards will go home on Thursday, January 25th.
Please don't fret, we've still got another day of school left!
Tomorrow is a Friday 3 (3b, 4b, 5b, 6b).
There was a bit of confusion due to the sheet attached to the Traditional Calendar on our website. Please ignore the second page. We've asked that it be removed from the website immediately.
Okay, I'm losing it! I know that I wrote in my blog yesterday.. alas, posting is the important final step!
A very Happy New Years to all of our RTA families. There's definitely no confusing what season we are in... it's agreeably cold outside. As always, when we hit the -20 C or colder (including wind chill), we remain indoors during lunch and recess.
In addition to all of our fun Science Fair endeavors, Basketball tryouts have begun, and wrestling is continuing, strong.

Me to We Presents...
Help the Homeless this December
1. Bring in new mitts, gloves and socks to decorate our tree in the lobby. Items can be brought in until December 20th.
2. On Tuesday, December 12th, it will cost you to wear your hat. Pay $2 and you will be allowed to wear your hat for the day. The money collected will be used to support the homeless in Calgary.
Thank you for your support
Ms. Burkell and Ms. Nelson
It's the perfect time of year to loom - and why not do it with friends?
Grade. 5 & 6 students are invited to bring their lunch and to join Ms. Lewis for a lunch of looming in the Library (and, yes, due to special circumstances, we will be eating in the Library!).
Students can bring their rainbow loom supplies from home or they can bring a knitting loom and yarn. I'll bring in some stuff from home to help teach how to knit a hat or legwarmers, but it's much easier if each student brings in their own supplies.
For advance crochet-ers and knitters, I might not be too much help, but you can certainly join in the fun!
Expert parents are also welcome!
This is definitely a short, busy, complicatedly wonderful week!
RTA's lunch has gone through several changes during these past few months. Here are the most recent updates:
Open Gym (12:10-12:30):
Monday - Grade 5
Tuesday - Grade 6
Wednesday - Grade 7
Thursday- Grades 8 & 9

Dearest Parents & Guardians,
RTA will be holding it's school Remembrance Day Assembly on Friday, November 10th, commencing at 10:30 AM.
Every student will be given a poppy prior to the assembly.
We hope that all students are able to bring a loonie or a tonnie for the poppy donation boxes.
Also, we are still collecting dried/tinned goods for the Veteran's Food Bank; a central box is located in front of the Office.
