August Message:

Welcome to a new school year full of JOY and learning!  We would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our new Raven families joining us and in particular our Kindergarten students who are beginning their school and RTCS journey.

The first day of school for our Grade One through to Grade 9 students will be Tuesday, September 5th from 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.  Students will spend the first day learning about Rosedale Traditional Community School procedures and routines.  Students in Grades 7-9 will find their homeroom lists posted in the big gym, while students in Grades 1-6 are asked to report to their previous year’s classroom.  If you are a new Grade 1-6 student we will ask that you report to room 305.  There will be lots of adults and Leadership students available to help you find your classroom. 

The first day of school represents a regular day of instruction and therefore we will all be wearing our school uniform.  If you need to order new clothing please do so online through our uniform supplier at

Please note our Kindergarten students will join us the following week, beginning Monday, September 11th for a gradual entry.  A schedule for our Kindergarten students will follow.

Enclosed in this mail out package are several forms that require parent and student signatures.    We require these forms be completed and returned to the school office by the end of the first week.

Communication between home and school is vitally important. Please check our website, for information regarding the school calendar, block rotation, bell schedule, school activities, and athletic events.  You can also stay connected by “liking us” on facebook.

Enjoy the last remaining days of your summer holiday.  We are looking forward to a joyful year ahead at Rosedale Traditional Community School!

Mrs. P. Jordan
