Spaces available at RPNS
Spread the word that we have spaces available in our Toddler and Junior Preschool classes. Many RPNS families heard about our program from other families!
New for January 2016, city of Ottawa Floating Subsidies! Families that qualify for subsidized child care can choose nursery schools as an option for their child. Currently families needed to find early learning and care programs that have allotted subsidy spaces from the city. In January, these subsidizes will go ‘with the child’, so parents will have more options in their choices for quality care. Parent must register with the city of Ottawa Child Care Registry & Waitlist https://onehsn.com/Ottawa
Barefoot Books Book Fair

Kindly provide your orders by December 5th to ensure they are delivered before the school closes for the Christmas holiday. Teachers have ‘wish lists’ that they provided to Dina, so should you wish to buy something for the classroom or a holiday gift for your child's teacher, just contact Dina.

REMINDERS FOR PARENTS:
The cold weather is coming and we want to enjoy outdoor play! Kindly ensure that your child is appropriately dressed with coats, splash pants/snow pants, hats, mitts (no attached strings please~ strangulation hazard), neck warmers (safer than scarves). Label everything, please! See the Mabels Labels link on our website http://mabelslabels.com/.
Mitten clips are available at Boomerang Kids on Bank Street and Growing Kids at Billings Bridge.
All children need to have a full set of extra clothing in their school bags (remember the undies and socks!)
Canadian Tire Money is used to purchase maintenance items so feel free to drop off any CT monies in the box provided on the Communication Table.
By placing Scholastic Book orders through RPNS you are actually providing the teachers with free coupons for Educational items. Scholastic Books make great holiday gifts! To ensure delivery before Christmas, have your orders in by Nov.16.
Too much Halloween candy?!! Donate it to the school and we will use the candy to decorate our Gingerbread Houses in December. The children’s beautiful houses are donated to a local senior’s home.
