School Development – Parent Surveys

Dear Parent/Guardian,

School Development Surveys are conducted annually to gather feedback from students, staff, and parents/guardians to inform the school development process. The survey results will be provided to your child’s school and used with other data to identify the school’s strengths and challenges. Your child’s school will then create and implement a plan to build on successes and address areas of challenge.

The survey is anonymous, which means that we cannot connect your survey responses to you. We encourage everyone to participate so that we have the most accurate representation of family perceptions at your school.

The Family Survey will be available on February 11, 2019. Please complete the survey by March 15, 2019 by clicking on the following link:

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the school development surveys, please contact:

         Christie Warren at 709-729-5649 or or

         Jennifer Smith at 709-729-5588 or or

        Patricia Emberley at 709-729-6850 or

Thank you for your participation and for being a valued member of our school community.

RIA Hits The Ice

RIA students had an awesome night last Wednesday as both our Play 4 Fun group and our Grade 3-6 sports night group combined for a fun-filled night of skating, snacks, and hot chocolate!

Many thanks to our parents who coordinate the sports night and Mr Blackmore & Sherry Blackmore who coordinate the Play 4 Fun group.  Thanks to Mrs Rogers for picking up some snacks and hot chocolate for the evening. A special thanks to Jason and Patricia Bryant for providing the lighting and a great location on this fantastic night as well!  Jason did an outstanding job in organizing this event…and as we always say…RIA runs on our amazing parent volunteers!
