Dear REDFISH Families,

 

Please find below some important information, highlights, and opportunities for your perusal as we wrap-up our first school week of spring… 

 

T2 LEARNING UPDATE SURVEY

 

If you have not already done so, please take an easy minute (or less!) to complete the super brief, but very important, survey linked in the parent email to let us know whether or not you were able to view your child’s T2 learning update. Thank you for your help!

 

STUDENT-LED CONFERENCES

 

Student-led conferences have been set at REDFISH for Wednesday, April 24, 2024 from 2 – 6 PM. This event will offer an awesome opportunity to spend up to a half-hour with your child in the classroom… interacting over work samples, celebrating progress, and setting goals for the remaining couple months of the school year. More details to follow in the weeks ahead…

 

SD8 ANNUAL BUS REGISTRATION

 

Registration is open! The SD8 Transportation Department is accepting bus registration applications from now until June 14, 2024. Please note that all riders must register annually. Please see the flyer attached to the parent email for more details.

 

RPAC ‘GROWING SMILES’ FUNDRAISER

 

Your RPAC is hosting a spring fundraiser through ‘Growing Smiles’ which features a variety of plants for purchase. Information was sent home on paper with students today. For your ease of reference, please also find a PDF copy of the parent letter and order form attached to the parent email. Thank you for your support!

 

SD8 SUSTAINABILITY SURVEY

 

The SD8 Board of Education is seeking to develop a Sustainability Policy and is looking to gather feedback from parents on what to consider in this work. With this in mind, please take a moment to complete the online survey linked in the parent email prior to Friday, April 12, 2024 if you haven’t already.

 

SOLAR ECLIPSE REMINDER

 

This is a brief reminder of the upcoming solar eclipse on Monday, April 8, 2024. The district has directed all schools to keep elementary students indoors between 10:40 AM and 12:20 PM on Monday. Please see the parent email for more details.
