Mission Statement


Rosedale Traditional Community School is a compassionate community of learners who CARE and nurture a culture of kindness and acceptance,

ENGAGE in active and innovate experiences, and INSPIRE curiosity, discovery and achievement.

Care ~ Engage ~ Inspire

During a quick walk through the school these days, you will see vegetables and flowers beginning to sprout in a variety of places……. inside our classrooms, in hallways, and in our school garden.  It is heartwarming to observe students engaged in the process of caring for and nurturing their plants.  This is not just about the process of growing plants, but also the process of growing young minds and spirits.


May is an extremely busy month for RTCS students, parents and staff.  Field trips, a Heart Garden Project to honour Aboriginal Peoples who attended Residential Schools, a Grade 5 Gym Blast, District and Local Aboriginal Awards Evenings, Rosedale’s Got Talent, and the District Special Needs Sports Day are just a short sampling of the activities that we will be participating in. 


It is also the time of year that we have conversations with students about, “staying the course.”  With only two months until July, students need those gentle reminders: to continue with kind words and kind actions; to carry on wearing their school uniform; and to stay focused on their academics.  We certainly appreciate your support at home with helping to provide these reminders. 


School and Home Communication are an essential ingredient to the success of our students.  We encourage our parent community to stay connected by ensuring that the school has a current email address; by checking our school website; and “liking” our Facebook page.
