Please be aware that we are shutting down the Remind App that we have been using in the past years as an extra means of communication. The terms and conditions have changed as of January 1st, 2020 and it requires us to pay a $5000 annual fee for any group that is more than 200. We will continue to use dialer messages, emails, assemblies, morning announcements, and TA meetings but the school website is the best place to find up-to-date information.



Grade 12 is a time to celebrate your time at River East Collegiate. Whether you're the proud parent or the accomplished senior, Jostens has all you need to commemorate high school achievements and memories.
