Principal's Summer Message July 2022

Dear ROMS families,

It is hard to believe that another school year has come to a close!  I wish everyone a safe, relaxing summer and look forward to the 2022/23 school year!  Below you'll find some important information including our summer hours, school supply lists and first day procedures:

Gr 8 Goodbyes - Congratulations to our 214 Gr 8 students on a great finish to an unprecedented and tumultuous 3 years of middle school!  Despite the challenges of the pandemic, this group of students has been resilient and compassionate.  It was such a joy to watch them celebrate at their Gr 8 Farewell in June... they danced their hearts out, played games and enjoyed being together!  

Retirees - Congratulations to Mr. Sparanese, Ms. Campbell and Mr. Reston who retired from their teaching careers in June 2022.  We wish them all the very best in their retirement and thank them for their many years of service to the students and families of SD 63.  

First Day of School  -  The first day of school next year is Tues, September 6th.  Students will come to school, as usual, from 9-10:30am and buses will be available to pick up students early.  Students will meet us on the field between 8:45 and 9, and will be guided by the staff to their new division.   We will email out more details at the end of August, and the information will also be available on our website. 

School Supplies - here is the school supply list for next year.  It is a generic list of supplies for all Gr 6-8 students.  Individual teachers will let their students know their preference for binders or duo tangs etc. on the first day of school.

Summer Office Hours and Report Card pick up  - Here is the schedule of our summer hours.  Feel free to pop in to pick up your child’s report card, or give the office a call during these times if you have a question or wish to register your child (250 479 7128):
