    Welcome Back to Raft River
    by Shaun McKenna - Wednesday, 31 August 2016, 8:34 AM

    Hello Everyone,

    Welcome back to Raft River Elementary for the 2016 - 2017 school year. We have had some changes to our wonderful staff this year. First I would like to welcome our new Vice Principal, Ryoko Whitney.  Ms. Whitney comes to us from the West Kootenay where she was the Vice Principal at Nakusp Secondary School. Next I would like to welcome the new teachers to our staff, Michelle Farris, Amber Horne, and Ashley MacDougall.

    Our first day of school will be Tuesday September 6th. This will be a half day, until 12:00 and doors will be open at 8:30. Students will find class lists in the hallway. For the first week students will be placed in temporary classrooms where teachers will review the previous years work. This is to get a firm idea of what our student numbers really are. Once we have a clear understanding of our student numbers there will be a shuffle of students into their permanent classes.

    All the best,

    Shaun McKenna

    Welcome to our new Kindergarten Students
    by Shaun McKenna - Wednesday, 24 August 2016, 1:16 PM

    I want to give a great big welcome to our new students who are entering into Kindergarten this year.  While September 6th is the first day of school for the other students, our Kindergarten students will not be starting then. The Kindergarten teachers will be contacting the parents of our new student to set up interviews and discuss starting times. Kindergarten students will be gradually introduced to school over the first week of school.  They will be doing half days, either mornings or afternoons, for the first week and then full days by Wednesday of the following week. If you have any questions call us Raft River Elementary.

    Take care,

    Shaun McKenna
