Parent Library Resources
Through the generous support of the Ontario Ministry of Education and the Parents Reaching Out grant program, we have started to implement a Parent Resource Lending Library. Through this library, RPPS parents are able to check out books from the RPPS library that cover a wide range of challenges that a child might face including anxiety disorders, autism, internet safety, learning disabilities, bullying, a death in the family and many more. A complete list of topics can be found here.
To see what's available, visit the RPPS Online Library
and search "parent's reference". To take out the book of your choice, just email our librarian Helene Duquette at firstname.lastname@example.org. Helene will schedule a pickup with you. All requests are confidential.
We would like to thank Helene for her work on this initiative and we look forward to seeing the Lending Library grow to meet your needs.
February 10 is international Safer Internet Day. This is an opportunity to celebrate the knowledge at our finger tips afforded by the Internet, and also to mark the importance of being aware of the potential dangers it can pose. The best way to be safe is to be informed. For this reason, we wanted to share some information to help parents and children make informed choices to be safe online. Please click on the links below:

On a related note, based on requests and interest from many parents, our parent council is making arrangements to invite a representative from MediaSmart http://mediasmarts.ca
to talk to parents and students about how to be safe online this spring. Stay tuned for more details.
