Principal's Report - Linda Grieve
January 9th was a difficult day due to dealing with the media. The Board of Education was very helpful in assisting Riverdale staff and students to deal with the tragic death of Jane Creba. RCI has been in the news twice this school year due to the deaths of two student. Linda mentioned that there was a media circus around the School and it was a difficult day for everyone. She announced there will be a Town Hall Meeting on January 26th to assist in the healing process for the surrounding Riverdale Community.
100th Anniversary Committee:
The first Riverdale Reunion Committee meeting was held on April 12, 1999
in the school staff room. We have learned from other high school reunions
(Danforth, Northern, Malvern) that it's easy to lose money. The School
is presently designing a banner. The School is doing the RCAA website.
There will be a Phone number and website indicated on the banner.
Important to have someone in school office to keep record of deposits and monies in general. We need to find out from school that this is.
As part of the registration package, participant would receive the following: Centennial Anniversary Booklet, bag, pad and school pen. Cost of package is $50.00.
Copy of Registration Form was passed around during the meeting and is
a work in progress.
