Ms. R. Sebellin
I thought it would be timely to emphasize the importance of strong relations between the school and the home in supporting student success. Our District's commitment to this partnership is outlined in the District Directions, the cornerstone of which is the delineation of roles and responsibilities played by parents, students and teachers. Thank you to all the parents and students who participated in the recent Parent-Teacher Interviews. It was an amazing turnout. The next report card will be will be sent home with students on Thursday, December 11th. Remember, if you have any questions or concerns about your son’s or daughter’s progress you can contact the school at any time.
While we realize that as young people mature they demand and need more independence and autonomy, we also know that parents have a strong and supportive role to play in education. In addition to classroom support, try to find the time to watch your child engage in extracurricular activities, contact a counsellor at any time should you have questions regarding post-secondary options or course choices, attend a PAC meeting to meet other involved parents and maintain ongoing conversations with your child about what he or she is learning. Your active interest makes a world of difference.
One of our school goals at RSS is to help students develop a sense of social responsibility and an awareness of the needs of others. We are very fortunate to live in Canada and we have an obligation to reach out and assist those less fortunate. Thank you to those who contributed to the canned food and clothing drive and other fundraising events held this year. These are just a few examples of how our students continue to demonstrate their social responsibility in assisting those in need. Thank you to the students and staff for the kindness and care you share with us each day you come to school. Thank you to all our parents. Your support for the school is invaluable.
The two-week winter break arrives for students on Friday, December 19th. This break gives students a chance to rest and relax with family and friends and get ready for the challenges and opportunities of a New Year. Again, I want to thank parents, students and staff for their support and efforts in continuing to make Richmond Secondary a great school. We have a lot to be proud of - our students excel in academics, athletics, the fine and performing arts, in applied skills, in vocational pursuits, in leadership and community service. Credit for all this belongs to the hard work and commitment demonstrated each day by our staff, coupled with our dedicated and talented students who have been willing to give that extra effort to be the best they can.
On behalf of the staff of Richmond Secondary, I would like to extend warmest wishes to all our students and their families for a happy holiday season. We hope that 2015 brings all of you joy and prosperity. All the very best in the New Year.
