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,
