Coats for Kids

Students of homeroom 8-1 are collecting "gently used" winter outerwear for
VOCM Cares Coats for Kids.  The Coats for Kids Campaign is an annual, usable children’s winter clothing drive that provides low income families with warm winter coats, boots, snow pants, hats, mittens and scarves free of charge.  

 


Reports and Parent/Teacher Conferences


The first report cards for the 2014-15 school year will be released on Friday, November 28 and parent teacher conferences will be held on Thursday, December 4. Please mark these dates in your calendars.

Interview booking times can be made after the report cards are distributed beginning, Friday November 28 at 2:30 p.m.

As in past years, we will be using an on-line booking system to book your interviews. You can book three (3) interviews per child. A link to the Online Parent Teacher Interview Scheduler (OPTIS) is available, simply click here. Please review this link and setup your account. It is important to set up your account in advance. Please note that for each interview period the system is reset and all accounts from last year removed.


Book Fair

Frank Roberts Junior High will be hosting its annual Scholastic Book Fair from December 1 – 4. All students will have an opportunity to visit the Learning Resource Centre to view and purchase books during this time. Parents can view and purchase books from 2:20 – 2:45 pm on these days and during Parent/Teacher Interviews scheduled for Thursday, December 4th. This is a good opportunity to get some great reading material and/or purchase Christmas gifts. The books are well priced and there is a great selection available. Please avail of the opportunity to obtain reading material for your son or daughter, or even yourself and help support Frank Roberts Junior High at the same time. Hope to see you there.

 


Male staff members at Frank Roberts Jr. High have banded together to participate in the global movement Movember – a unique initiative whereby men through the growing of a moustache during the month of November raise funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer. Mo Bros, as they are internationally referred, effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words, they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

The funds raised are directed to programs run directly by the Movember Foundation and their health partner, Prostate Cancer Canada. Together, the two channels work to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programs in the areas of awareness and education, survivorship and research.

If you would like to support this very worthy cause please check out our team Franks Fuzzy Ravens. Thank you for your support.



Fundraising Update

Our Catalogue Fundraiser is now complete. The shipment of goods will arrive later this month and will be distributed when it arrives. An email will be sent to you when the order arrives and the order will be sent home with your child. If the order is large you may wish to arrange for your child to be picked up at school rather than transport it on the bus.

Thank you to our students and their families for supporting our fundraising efforts. Through your hard work, over $18,000 worth of product was sold. The school receives approximately 45% of this amount. As incentives to the students, fundraising prizes will be awarded: each seller will receive a ticket for every $25.00 worth of merchandise they sold. The tickets are for the chance to win a new mini iPad . As well, the top three sellers will receive cash prizes. These prizes will be awarded after the orders have arrived and are distributed. A big thank you to everyone who helped.

The profits from this fundraiser will allow us to purchase a remotely controlled screen and some chairs for the gym.
 


Professional Development Day

There will be no classes for students on Friday, December 5 as there is a professional development day scheduled for teachers. Classes will resume again on Monday, December 8. It will be Day 3 on your child’s schedule.
