PA Day – Friday

A reminder that Friday June 2nd is a PA day.  There is no school for students.

Tomorrow is the track & field day for our grades 4-8 students.  Please ensure you send your student(s) with a hat, sunscreen and water bottle as they will be spending the day outside.

School Council Meeting

A reminder that the final school council meeting for this year will take place on Monday June 5, 2017 at 7pm in the school library.  All are welcome to attend.

Early Dismissial – June 29th

All schools in the York Region District School Board are committed to improving student achievement and well-being.  On Thursday, June 29, 2017, an early release day will take place to allow elementary teachers and support staff to take part in meetings during the afternoon of that day.  These meetings will allow for school staff to engage in culminating activities regarding the review and revision of the School’s Improvement Plan as well as year-end and transition activities that support student success.

As has been our practice in the past, students will attend school during the morning of Thursday, June 29, 2017 only.  Students will be dismissed early that day at 11:30am.  Arrangements will be made to ensure that students who are normally bused to and from school will receive transportation at this time.  Parents/guardians whose children attend after school child care should make appropriate arrangements to address this change in schedule.

Carnival Volunteers Needed

To make our 2nd annual school carnival a success, we need the support of volunteers.  If you are able to lend your time/help please contact our school council chair Jodi via email at

Thank you!

Track & Field (Grades 4-8)





Dear, Parents / Guardians,


Rosedale Heights’ annual Track and Field Meet will be taking place on Thursday, June 1st, 2017. This is an all-day outdoors event where the students will be participating in a variety of running and field events that they have been practicing in their Physical Education classes. The top six students for each running event (100 meter, 200 meter, and 400 meter) and each track event (standing long jump, running long jump, triple jump, and ball throw / shot put) will receive ribbons. The top two finishers from each event will be invited to participate in the Area Track and Field Meet (June 14th and 15th; details to follow).


Please ensure your child is wearing appropriate clothing, such as a t-shirt, shorts and running shoes. Your child should bring a hat, water bottle, and sunscreen as they will be outside for the majority of the day. The Track and Field Meet will take place during the regularly scheduled day (8:30 to 2:50).


Students who are unable to participate for medical reasons and have provided a note from home will be asked to assist teachers managing the events.


As always, we expect that students will behave in a cooperative and respectful manner throughout the day.


The expected forecast for Thursday is partly cloudy and eighteen degrees. However, closer to the date, should it call for rain, our rain date will be the day before on Wednesday, May 31st.

A Message from our Trustee

June 2017

As we near the end of the school year, I want to thank you for all that you do to strengthen our schools and communities. This is a good time to celebrate your child’s achievements over the past year.


One of our goals in the Trustees’ Multi-Year Plan is to “continuously increase student achievement and well-being through a culture and caring and learning.” That includes a culture that emphasizes engagement and positive relationships among all the members of the school community – students, staff members, families and community members.


You, as parents/guardians, are our most important partners when it comes to education. The support you have provided to your child throughout this past school year will help to strengthen our schools and make a difference to your child’s learning.


I encourage you to continue engaging your child in learning throughout the summer, and to help them to see the connections between what they are learning in school and the world around them. There are so many opportunities to do this over the summer, whether that’s planning a budget with your child, enjoying the natural beauty in York Region, reading a book or visiting local sites. Whatever your plans are this summer, I wish you all a successful end to the school year, and a safe and enjoyable summer.  

Here we GROW!

Now that our four garden beds are built and ready to go, it’s time to get growing.

Today our kindergarten students learn about seeds and germination as they begin the process of growing new plants to be transplanted when they are strong enough to thrive.

Thanks to our grade eight gardeners for leading our youngest students in this activity.
