Final BLOG Post

Due to the addition of ADs beyond our control we have decided to discontinue the use of the wordpress BLOG.

We will be switching to the EDSBY communication tool as a means to get messages and information out to our Rosedale community.

Please ensure you have signed up/verified your account through EDSBY. We will be sending the first EDSBY communication tomorrow afternoon. If you do not receive a notification of this, please contact the office to ensure you are properly set-up with your EDSBY account.

Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.

Upcoming Sweater Day and Winter Walk

The Count down to Rosedale Sweater Day and Winter Walk begins…..

As part of a school wide Eco Team initiative, Rosedale will take part in the World Wildlife Federation Sweater Day on Thursday, February 7, 2019.  We will be joining millions of other Canadians that day by lowering our heat and wearing a warm sweater to school to build awareness of climate change.  Please note, that the school heating will be lowered by 2°C, and students are advised to bring an extra sweater or warm layer to school that day.

BUT WAIT…there’s more! This year, the Eco Team is combining Sweater Day with our school wide Winter Walk in the community.

According to WWF:

Left unchecked, climate change could push one in six species to extinction. Because fossil fuels are the single biggest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, WWF-Canada is committed to seeing Canada use 100 per cent renewable energy by 2050. “
