Other items of interest:


  • We always enjoy celebrating the successes our students experience in school-based sports, activities and contests, but we would like to also celebrate their interests away from school.  Our school is full of artists, curlers, writers, ropers, poets, hockey players, dancers, football players, musicians, equestrian riders – and probably more that we don’t even know about!  Kids don’t always like to brag themselves up, so we are hoping parents will let us know when there is a big event coming up so we can wish them well or let us know some results that we can celebrate with them.
  • Watch for information about Rouleau School’s K-12 Cross Country Invitational Meet coming home today. Any student wanting to participate must be signed up at the office by Wednesday, September 29.
  • Join us in wishing Payton Nestman good luck as he participates in Provincial Golf at Rosthern this weekend.
  • Our Senior Girls Volleyball Team will be hosting their home tournament this Saturday.  Come out to cheer on our girls as they host Milestone, Cornerstone, Bengough & Ogema.
  • Thank you to the families who have sent family pictures for our Family Tree.  If you haven’t done so already, please consider doing so at your convenience as we would like have all families represented on the wall.  Please scan and send to  or send a picture to school that can be scanned and returned to you.
