Parking and Entry Door Reminders
If you are dropping off your child at Ranleigh Rascals please remember that east doors (portable side) and front doors are
open in the morning. The west doors (parking lot) are not open and should not be used for morning drop offs.
Please do not use the staff parking lot to do drop offs in the morning. If you are picking up your child after 4:00 and the
parking lot has available spots please you are welcome to use it then. As you may be aware our staff has increased
steadily over the past several years and the large lot already overflows with staff cars. Please do not use the large parking
lot in the morning, during the school day or immediately afterschool.
At the end of the day (after 3:30) the front doors are open as well as the portable and parking lot doors.
For children who do not attend the daycare please make sure you drop off your child before the entry bell at their line up
spot. Please do not bring your child to their classroom or wait by the classroom door with your child prior to school. We
can not operate a system where children with their parents can bypass the basic routines of the school while children
whose parents are not present are required to follow them.
Grades 1 and 2 students will have Chess Club every Wednesday starting Wednesday October 15th with grade 1’s in rooms
14 & 15 and grade 2’s in rooms 2 & 12. Due to the Thanksgiving holiday Grade 3 students will be every Monday beginning
on October 20 in rooms 14 & 15. Grades 4-7 will be every Thursday starting Thursday October 16 in rooms 2 & 12.
Classes will run 8 weeks; grades 1, 2 and 4-7 will end the week of December 1 and the grade 3 students will have their
final class on Monday December 8th.

Bedford Park is looking for volunteers to take part in a daily reading program with our primary students. The program will
run Monday to Friday from 2:45pm-3:20pm beginning in November. Volunteers will be given a specific day or number of
days, depending on personal availability, to work with students each week. Your role in the program will be to read with
individual or small groups of children working on simple reading strategies or sparking conversations about story themes.
If you are interested in taking part or have questions about the program please email Ms. Blight
([email protected]). Also, please include which day(s) of the week you are available to be a part of the program.
Thank you to all those students that applied for the 2014/2015 Student Council. Your efforts and dedication were greatly
appreciated. Congratulations to this year's representatives. Our first meeting will take place on Tues Oct 21 at 11:35am in
Rm. 29 - please bring your lunch.
