Alumni /Grade 12 Post-Secondary Transition Program
In it's 5th year, Richview Grads are invited back to dialogue with Grade 12 students.
On May 2nd and 3rd, a bevy of newly-minted "first year" university/college students each provided an overview of their respective programs and then shared a Q and A session with Grade 12sin each of our 7 senior English classes. We are grateful for the insight, honesty and encouragement they provided to their peers and we thank Mrs. Calabria and Mrs. Haden-Reeves for organizing the event. The present and future are bright!
Student Nutrition Program
The application has been approved, funding has arrived, the volunteers are in place and the equipment has arrived. The morning grab and go breakfast plan will enable students to start the day right with a rotating offering of a fruit/veggie, a cereal/grain and a dairy product all for a contribution of $1. We rely now on our trades people to ensure proper plumbing and electrical support for the equipment. The plan is to run a pilot in May (twice a week) and to run it daily in September.
