December Message:

I am always amazed at how quickly the days go by.  The season of snowflakes, twinkling lights, hot chocolate and peppermint is upon us.

Over the past few months I have marveled at the members of our PAC.  For their dedication, service and overall care for all of our students here at RTCS.  We would like to say “thank-you” for the many opportunities that they provide.  From the daily breakfast program, book exchange, Portraits with Santa, and fundraising……it all makes an incredible difference to our school community.  We are so grateful for this amazing group of parents.  

It is hard to believe that December is here and we have wrapped up Term 1!  Your children have been making some great strides in their learning.  We are very proud of their results, as many of you must have been or will be when you read their report cards.  Just a quick reminder that we do need those report card folders returned to the office.

During the month of December, there are a number of fun-filled activities that have been planned: the Annual Turkey Shoot, Canned Food Drive, Elementary Christmas Concert, Middle School Music Performances, Aboriginal Family and Friends Dinner, Middle School Skate, and School Wide Christmas Assembly.  In addition to all of this, students and staff are remaining focused on academics. During the week of December 11th, Middle School Interim Reports will go home for those students who are missing work and/or are below 60% in one or more of their classes.

Wow!  That is a lengthy list with only three weeks remaining until the break.  I am hopeful that over the coming weeks you are able to slow down and enjoy the special moments of this season.  On behalf of the Staff at Rosedale Traditional Community School, we would like to wish everyone a safe and restful Christmas surrounded by family and friends.

Mrs. P. Jordan, Principal
