Important upcoming Dates:

Again, welcome back and I look forward to a wonderful year at RCI.
Due to the power outage overnight, school has been cancelled today. As well, we have decided to re-schedule the Dance and Parent meeting to another day if we can arrange it. We will provide information about this early next week.

2014 Undergrad Awards: April 16th @ 6:45pm
With the delay of our gymnasium this past fall/winter we were forced to delay many of our school activities and events including our 2014 Undergrad Awards celebration.
As late as this may be, we do feel it is important to recognize these students and allow parents the opportunity to attend this celebration. Following the Thursday (April 16th) evening Parent Teacher Interviews we finally be able to host our Undergrad Awards. This will begin at 6:45pm and should only last approximately one hour. We hope you will be able to join us for this event.
We are currently in week two in Semester Two of the 2014-15 school year. Timetables have been updated and students should have shown and discussed the current set of courses with parents . Parents are also able to access the Parent Portal to view courses and assignments/marks details for each course. Contact the RCI office if you do not have your Portal username and password. Parents are encouraged to contact teachers on a regular basis to enquire about student progress while students are encouraged to keep up with work and complete the provided assignments from all classes.
Students who remain Incomplete in Semester One courses have been provided with deadlines to complete Essential Outcome assignments, tests, exams before being awarded credit.
Report Cards will be handed out to our Grade 9-12 students on February 11th or 12th. Any concerns regarding errors on the report card, please contact RCI at your earliest convenience.
A big THANK YOU to the Rivers and Area Community Foundation and Brandon and Area Community Foundation for the generous grant towards our Wetlands Centre of Excellence. On November 19th, Rivers Collegiate received an $11,000 grant towards the expansion of our community project. This money will go towards the materials for an outdoor classroom shelter on the east side of the site.
This is where I'll be sharing my thoughts on topics that matter to me. Who knows... I might even share pictures, videos and links to other interesting stuff.
If I catch your interest, let me hear from you.
|No, this isn't actually my picture. I just haven't gotten around to updating this section. It's good to know that someone is reading every last word though. Thanks!
