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. 

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 when you read their report cards.  Just a friendly reminder that we do need those report card folders returned to the office. 

During the month of December, many of our students will be exploring the virtue of Compassion.  As an RTCS Community, we will be demonstrating this virtue through a number of fun-filled activities that we have planned:  the Annual Turkey Shoot, Canned Food Drive, Portraits with Santa, Elementary Christmas Concert, Middle School Arts in the Afternoon Event, Aboriginal Family and Friends Dinner, Middle School Skate and School Wide Christmas Assembly.  In addition to all of this, students are remaining focused on their academics.  During the week of Dec. 5th, 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 two weeks remaining.  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.
