Please take a moment to read through this brief update from your RPPS School Council.

Important Reminder: OCDSB Trustee Chris Ellis will be at RPPS on Monday, October 24 at 7PM to discuss the Eastern Secondary Review. Superintendent Pino Buffone of district staff will be in attendance as well. The meeting will be held in the library. More details can be found at the following link:

Budget & Annual Report: At the October meeting, School Council approved the Budget for the 2016/17 school year and the Annual Report for the 2015/16 year. Both of these documents can be found on the SchoolCouncil page of the website (right sidebar):

Subsidy Policy: Created last year and funded again by Council this year, a subsidy policy is in place to promote equal access to fee-based special programs and extra-curricular activities at RPPS. Please do not hesitate to talk to Principal Shari Brodie or your child's teacher if you have questions about this policy. More information on the policy can be found on our Parent Resources page:

Parent Resource Lending Library: Also created last year, through this library RPPS parents are able to check out books from the RPPS library that cover a wide range of challenges that a child might face. Information on the Parent Resource Lending Library and how to check out books is also available on the Parent Resources page:

Next Council Meeting November 8, 2016: Hope to see you there!

Have a great weekend!
