October Message:

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.  There is a tremendous amount of evidence of this learning hanging on bulletin boards in our hallways – please feel free to come and have a look.

Thank you to all of our students and families for their generous participation in our annual Terry Fox Run.  Over $2500.00 was collected for cancer research, and our students demonstrated outstanding compassion and perseverance during our school wide run.  Such a powerful statement when students from Kindergarten to Grade 9 along with their staff are participating side-by-side.  A huge thank-you to our Leadership Class for organizing this successful event along with the staff who volunteered to get soaked in the dunk tank and/or offered to kiss a pig! 

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.  Yes, we have much to be thankful for!

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 October celebrating the things that you are thankful for.

Mrs. P. Jordan
