This week at Rosedale Heights

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As many of you are visiting teachers and DECEs this week to discuss the progress of your children, we’d like to remind you of many exciting things happening in our front foyer and on our main floor.

  1. Cassidy’s Key chains 4 Kids – one of our primary students has created many colourful key chains for sale with all proceeds going to Hospital for Sick Children. She has shown so much initiative and commitment to prepare this exciting fundraiser and I hope you will join me in supporting her efforts by purchasing a keychain. I think you should be one quickly as I’m sure she will sell out on Day One.
  2. A group of high school students has run a cookie sale every year at this time to donate proceeds to the Hospital for Sick Children. I am always impressed by the commitment shown by our students (and former students) at working to make a difference in our world. Please congratulate these young leaders and buy a cookie or make a donation if you wish.
  3. Our BOOK SALE is here and it is bigger than ever. Many thanks to our library helpers and Mrs. Diamond for the work and effort it takes to set up and run our annual Book Fair. Please visit the library when you come to meet the teachers.
  4. Our School Council will have a display set up for anyone that wishes to order ROCKETS SPIRITWEAR for their children. We have a newly designed logo and many students are excited about the t-shirts, hats, and hoodies available.  Don’t miss out on this opportunity to order as there will not be any other sales of these items during the school year. We thank our School Council for this exciting opportunity.
  5. We have a group of students that have sorted through the 120 items in our Lost and Found. Tables are set up in the front entrance. Please visit the tables as we have boots, sweatshirts, jewelry, shoes, water bottles and new snow pants and we hope each item can return to their rightful owner.

Thank you for your continued support!

Mr. Anania and Mrs. Waiser

Remembrance Day – Lest We Forget

Lest We Forget

On Remembrance Day, we remember the veterans who served our country in times of conflict. This year the students at Rosedale Heights will mark Remembrance Day with a display in the main atrium on November 9th for all students. Younger students will mark the occasion with age appropriate activities.  The main atrium will be filled with wreaths, posters and poppies created by students. We will have a school wide moment of silence at 11:00 a.m. and a live performance of the Last Post at 11:11 a.m.

We are asking that each child bring in a small donation (25 cents up to one dollar) for The Royal Canadian Legion’s Poppy Fund. A poppy will be given to each student. The poppy is worn as an act of remembrance for all the brave men and women who fought for Canada’s freedom. The money collected will be used to provide medical care and assistance to Canada’s war veterans. It also helps fund the building of housing and care facilities for elderly and disabled persons.

Thank you.
