Preference will be given to students entering the fields of engineering, architecture, or building technology. Should there not be suitable applications received in these fields, students in other courses of study will be considered, however, all applicants MUST be dependents of school district employees in the school plant area (i.e. Maintenance or Custodial).

Parent-Teacher Conferences

In addition to our regular evening session, we’ve added an afternoon of scheduled appointments using our new Booking Form.

Booking Form-March 6th Only

Before you book, click here for a “How-To” for the new booking form.

Here is a copy of  a letter sent home in February to highlight the   new ways we are approaching our Parent-Teacher conferences:

Dear Parents/Guardians:

We have listened to you! After October’s Parent-Teacher Conferences, parents/guardians indicated that there was insufficient time to meet with teachers and that there was a perceived lack of privacy during their discussions with teachers. We appreciate that these concerns were brought to the attention of the school.

After discussions with the RSS teaching staff, the school is pleased to announce two major changes for Parent-Teacher Conferences to meet the needs of both parents and teachers:

We have added a 3-hour afternoon session on March 6th where parents/guardians can ‘book’ a teacher for a short conference (see below for the link to the Booking Form), and
We have extended the regular evening session on March 7th from 1 ½ hours to 2 hours.

We will work to ensure that all of these sessions provide adequate privacy. As well, this new format will be discussed at the upcoming PAC meeting on February 26th at 6:00PM in the RSS Library.

In order to accommodate these sessions, RSS will dismiss at 11:50AM on both March 6th and March 7th.

 

March 6, 2019 1:00PM—4:00PM

This afternoon is available for booked appointments. Each appointment is ten minutes long. However, if you have booked back-to-back appointments plan on each meeting to be approximately seven minutes as that allows ‘travel time’ to your next appointment.

Please follow this link to book an appointment: Booking Form

There is an attached .pdf document with step-by-step instructions on how to book an appointment with a teacher using the Booking Form.

 

March 7, 2019 6:00PM—8:00PM

This evening is in the traditional format where teachers are available to chat with parents without booked times. This evening session has been extended from 1 ½ hours to 2 hours to accommodate more parent-teacher contact time.

We know you are very busy! As always, please contact your child’s teacher(s) to receive an update via email, telephone, or to set up an appointment at a mutually agreeable time.

RSS appreciates the opportunity to talk with parents about their children. We believe strongly that good communication is fundamental in allowing parents, teachers and students to work together for the best possible outcomes.

Sincerely;

Greg Kenyon
