October already, and much has taken place at Rosedale Traditional Community School. Our students have settled into their new classes and have been thoroughly engaged in learning.
Although we are only into the second month of the school year, we have had the opportunity to reaffirm the goals outlined in our school growth plan. You can find a copy of this plan on our school website. You will notice a strong connection between the RTCS Growth Plan and the School District Strategic Plan that include goals around: Instruction, Community and Culture, Social Emotional Wellness, and Resources.
Thank you to all of our students and families for their generous participation in our annual Terry Fox Run. Over $500.00 was collected for cancer research, and students demonstrated outstanding compassion and perseverance during our school wide run. Such a powerful statement when students from grade kindergarten to 9 along with their staff are participating side-by-side. A huge thank-you to our Leadership Class who organized this great.
As we begin to prepare for Thanksgiving it is essential to acknowledge the things that we are thankful for: …students who arrive each day eager to learn, an exceptionally dedicated staff, supportive families who partner alongside the school, a strong connection to our community and a beautiful facility in which to learn.
We continue to invite you to stay connected – by contacting your student’s teachers, checking our facebook page and school website, volunteering in a classroom or attending a PAC meeting.
Wishing you all a wonderful long weekend celebrating the things that you are thankful for.
Mrs. P. Jordan
