Parent Groups

We are proud of the dynamic, cooperative and strong partnership between our school and our families.

Parents are invited and encouraged to get involved and take an active role at École Rio Terrace Schule.  

Research shows that parent participation in their child’s education contributes significantly to their child’s success in school.

Thank you to all our parents for the time and talent you bring to our school.
