Please be aware that bears have been spotted in Elkford.
After working with Trustees Helgesen and Lento we are pleased to announce that Laura-Lee Phillips will be the new Principal at RMES until the return of the incumbent effective August 1, 2016.
Laura-Lee has been the Vice-Principal of both Jaffray Elementary Junior Secondary School for the past two years and was the Vice-Principal at Isabella Dicken Elementary School prior to that. She has spent 19 years in elementary education and received her education degree from the University of Victoria and completed her Master of Education degree in Leadership and Education from Gonzaga University.
Laura-Lee is very excited to work with James Lund and the excellent staff and community of Rocky Mountain Elementary School in Elkford. She is presently off to Quebec for a three week French immersion professional development opportunity and will be eager to begin her new position in August.
I know you join me in congratulating Laura-Lee on her new position and welcoming her into the RMES family.
Soccer practice is starting. Grades 4 to 6 boys and girls practice on Monday and Tuesday from 3:00 to 4:00. Thank you Ms. Haig and Ms. Shully for taking the time to coach our teams.
Please remember that the student drop off is at the gate on Deerborne Drive. Please do not drive into the parking area in the morning or after school as this makes it difficult for the bus to turn the corner. Thank you for your cooperation.
Thank you to all of the parents who made our science fair a huge success this year.
Ryan Arthur and James Lund agreed to have their heads shaved at an assembly if the students and staff at RMES reach their goal of raising $3000.
