It was a great start to the new year: there were lots of happy faces.
Now that we've finished day one, it starts to get busy.
Athletic tryouts start this week. (Please note: it is the intention that RTA and DGS will join together for athletics for the entire school year).
Boys soccer: meeting tomorrow at lunch
Girls soccer: Tues. Sept 13 after school
Boys vball: Tues. after school
Girls volleyball: Mon. Sept 12 after school
Cross country: Thursday at lunch (tomorrow)
Grade 7-9 students will also be working with their homeroom teachers, answering questions and providing feedback regarding this year's options. We've reviewed the requests made in the spring, and, as a new team of teachers, we are hoping to provide more opportunities for CTF, looking at breaking the year into 4 semesters. (students would get 2 options, 4 times a year, with the possibility of taking an option twice, with a different lens).
We will continue to have Band (with Ms. Ainsley Thesen, from DGS) all year, supported by Ms. Armitage and French with Mr. Pellatt.
A special thank you to all of the parents and students for welcoming me into the RTA community!
