Looking for something to read this holiday season?

We had a wonderful visit with the author, Sigmund Brouwer, on December 1st.  He challenged the grade 3-8 students and staff to all sing the chorus of a song and he would give us access to 75 ebooks for a month.  Ruth M. Buck School met the challenge and Sigmund Brouwer has delivered.  Until the end of January, the Ruth M. Buck community has access to free ebooks.  There are books for all ages including adults.  The Rock and Roll Literacy ebook subscription has no limitations, much like the Netflix approach. If 50 users want to read one of the titles all at the same time, no problem; if one title is borrowed 100 times in a row by 100 users no problem.

The books can be read with:
 
Windows (Desktop/laptop)
Mac OS (Desktop/laptop)
IOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch)
Android
Sony ereader pre PRS-700
Kobo Reader
Nook
Sony PRS-700 and newer

Bussing Reminders

 

 

As the cold weather approaches the Regina Public School Board wants to  ensure that school bus routes are running on time,  and that students are safe.  Student delays at stops affect students waiting  further into the route. 

1.   Ensure their child is at the stop location and is ready for boarding five minutes prior to the stated departure time.

2.   Ensure, as necessary, that there is a responsible individual available to meet the vehicle after school.

3.   Have alternate arrangements in place for those times when the vehicle is delayed.

Thank You

Thank you to all the parents, students and teachers who came to the BBQ and Open House!
