During the August 21st School Board meeting, community members asked the board to consider changing the Blue Demon mascot. The issue was brought to the school board through the proper channels and the discussion was in no way out of line or disrespectful. Community members spoke on both sides of the issue and presented their differing positions with no negativity. After hearing from community members, the board agreed to send out a community survey in order to get a better understanding of the entire community’s preference of the Blue Demon mascot. This survey is meant for informational purposes only and is not a vote or the deciding factor on keeping or changing the mascot. This survey is available online and a paper copy will be sent out in the September newsletter. Please return completed paper surveys to the school by September 15th. Ryegate Public School recognizes that the Blue Demon mascot is a topic of importance to both sides of the issue. The board would like to have a chance to hear from all community members concerning the mascot and have a respectful discussion at the September 18th board meeting at 6:30pm. Please come and participate in the debate. We hope this discussion will serve as a good example of the democratic process for our students and show them it is possible to disagree with an opposing view in a courteous way. As always, Ryegate Public School deeply appreciates the support and involvement of the Ryegate community and their determination to do what is best for our students.
Sealants for Smiles will be at Ryegate School on Tuesday, October 3rd. Consent forms will be sent out in the next few days. Please look for these and send them back asap.
