Off to a Great Start!

We are so pleased with how well our start to the school has gone. A big thank you to staff for all your hard work, to families for your patience, understanding and positivity and to our students for your enthusiasm and Royal spirit. We are looking forward to a great year! Another newsletter will be out soon with updated information, in the meantime we remind parents to refer to this schedule for start and end times and to phone ahead for appointments for office visits or inquiries.

Please see updated “What Will Royals Do” slideshow with this schedule.

Return to School

As you may have heard in the news, back to school plans have been announced by the Ministry of Education. Further information specific to SD60 and Robert Ogilvie will be shared later this month. In the meantime, we hope Robert Ogilvie families continue to enjoy a relaxing summer break.

Please see the attached link for district and ministry information.

Summer Break!

It’s been a bittersweet week here at RO, filled with mixed emotions. As students finished off the school year on Wednesday, and staff did today, we’re feeling what can best be described as “happy-sad”: happy for summer holidays to be here and for time to relax and recharge, happy for the friendships and connections we’ve made, but sad to say good-bye, especially to those we haven’t seen since spring break. and those who are moving on to new schools next year. Regardless, we wish everyone a very happy summer break, and the best of luck next school year.

The school office will be open Monday and Tuesday 9:00 to 3:00, if you need to drop something off or pick something up. We will be closed July 1, and will post information on re-opening later this summer.

This story captures our mood so well – a very fitting gift from Miss Bath to both Mrs.DeGroot and myself.

Royal Friday!

This was the last Friday of the 2019-20 school year and a good time to reflect on what it means to be a ROYAL! As Royals we “walk with pride in our step” and engage in our school community and learning journey with Respect, Organization, Accountability and Resilience. In the last three months we have had to R.O.A.R. even louder as we adjusted to the challenges and opportunities of learning during a Pandemic, from home and school, in new and different ways. Here’s Mrs.Kenyon and some of her Kindergarten students “signing” our song, which fills my heart with so much pride and joy!

We should also be proud of the way we have all worked together to ensure the health and safety of our school community, whether we are learning from school or home at this time. We appreciate everyone’s patience, cooperation and respect, and would like to give special thanks to Ms Jona Dubuque, our head custodian, for her tireless commitment to keeping our school sparkling clean, as well as Sabrina Elmslie (SD60) and Mrs.DeGroot for taking the lead in Health and Safety measures for our school during this time. Also, thanks to these Grade 6s from Mrs. Klassen/Dressler’s class for creating this video to remind students of ways to be safe, be kind and have fun!
