Charitable Foundation Submission

Needs to be done a yearly basis, but we have not submitted for the past two years. The reason the delay is getting the information from the Royal Bank. Since we have this issue, we intend to move the money.

Newsletter 2013 Fall Issue

Seven pages are complete. Just need to have it sent to the school to be printed. Steve contacted people from his year to get stories for the Newsletter.

37 New Seat Owners - Enough need to check if there are enough chairs left to name.


Principal Kenn Harvey - A better school environment this year compared to last year. Riverdale had an exchange program with Japan, which was paid for by the Japanese Government. March Break to Ecuador for Free the Children. Riverdale is not involved with Kiwanis. But there is still a band competition (Ontario Band Association) that includes choral performances. Need to upgrade the tennis courts. Possibility of opening it to the community. Five kids are going to the World Ball Hockey tournament in Budapest. Still trying to find room for the Aristeas photographs as there is not enough wall space. Also, will discontinue the posting of the Ontario Scholarships as there are now too many names. The will be three new t.v.s installed to keep students informed for activities at the school. Also have two water coolers that are waiting to be installed. The mini-olympics are backed. The school song is still sung after assemblies. The new mascot is a pirate.
