Rideau Food and Winter Goods Drive is on!​  - This month, Rideau students are working together to collect goods for our families in need.  We are looking for non-perishable food items, toiletries, socks, hats, mitts and coats.  We've added a challenge to this year's drive: the homeroom that collects the most goods will be treated to a lunch prepared and hosted by our teachers!

Is your child struggling with school attendance?​ - Check out the Attendance Fact Sheet on our Student Services page.

Math Strategies - The Ontario Mathematics Curriculum is based on the belief that students learn mathematics most effectively when they are given opportunities to investigate ideas and concepts through problem solving and are then guided carefully into an understanding of the mathematical principles involved. At the same time, it of operational skills remains an important focus of the curriculum. Learn more about Balanced Mathematics Instruction hereLooking for resources and publications to help your child in math?
