Nuit Orange Recap

Nuit Orange 2018 was an incredible success!

Energy, enthusiasm, and a celebration of the arts were on the program last week at Nuit Orange – a spectacle of artistic talent never before seen in the halls of our 100-year-old school. The event drew a crowd of hundreds and treated Runnymede families to a showcase of band, strings, drama, dance, and visual art.

Bravo to Runnymede’s dedicated teaching staff who brought this vision to our school and made Nuit Orange happen, especially Mr. Medley, Mr.Ouelette, Mr. Kim, Mr. Latter & Mme Hatzepetros. Their passion for the arts is contagious.

Thank you to Parent Council’s Arts & Enrichment Committee, who spearheaded the art installations for the JK – Grade 5 students, and to the Spirit Committee and its army of volunteers who were the ultimate hosts with their food & drink stations.

Call for volunteers: Angry Birds Math and Amazing Math Race!

The STEM committee is looking for parent volunteers for the following activities:

Angry Birds Math
With the Angry Birds Math activity, kindergarten students get to measure, build, sort, graph and LAUNCH Angry Birds to apply what they’ve learned in math! This is a fantastic program, which runs in late May / early June, but it requires your help. Interested in helping to lead the program in your child’s classroom?

Please contact Dave Begleiter at david.begleiter@gmail.com.

Amazing Math Race
Calling all grade 3 parents (no math expertise required!) who would like to help run the Amazing Math Race in June. This is a half-day, off-site, fun math event where students run around and use their math and team-work skills.

Please contact the STEM committee at runnymedeSTEMcommittee@gmail.com

Nuit Orange: Program Revealed!

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

NO - sponsors

Attached is a digital copy of the program for our upcoming community event “Nuit Orange”.

The digital program is being circulated ahead of the event to help you plan your evening.  Below you will find a blocked-out timetable and schematic maps of the building’s various floors. The timetable has been colour coded to match the floor maps.

Food stations are demarcated by an orange box with a white knife and fork locations of food items are included in the timetable.

Don’t forget to order your refreshment tickets in advance!

Each performance space will have a mini-schedule posted outside of it on the evening of the event showing the specific rotation of small group performances in that room.

There will be a lot of moving performers during time blocks, however your child will know where they need to be and when. Please be respectful of the timelines and the announcements: this will allow the evening to run smoothly.

IMPORTANT!

We ask that once you have entered a room for a performance, you remain in that room for the duration of that time slot or until the end of all scheduled performances for that room. That way all student work is appreciated and respected.

Kindly ensure that your child is wearing their appropriate costume items and / or black bottoms and an orange top if they are performing.

Sincerely,

Ian Medley
Strings Teacher
Runnymede P.S.
