September 7 2011
After a summer of wonderful weather we are pleased to welcome everyone to Rosedale P.S. for the 2011-2012 school year. At the end of the first week, we will have an accurate count of all our students and will be in a position to see if any classes need to be reorganized. Should any changes be forthcoming, both parent and teacher staffing committees will have input and we will keep you informed.
During the summer, I was able to hire new members to our staff
Kerry Hall will take over as our French/Physical Education teacher. Kerry is an experienced teacher who comes to us with great recommendations. In addition, Matthew Kent-Davidson has been successful in his bid to become a permanent member of our staff. This year, he will teach grade 1/2 in room 1. Laura Brown-Bowers will join our staff in September 2012, after having completed a full year on maternity leave. We are also pleased to welcome Jean Emond, as our new Head Caretaker.
In order to provide you with an early opportunity to meet our wonderful staff, Curriculum Night has been scheduled for Thursday, September 22. Specific details will be included in an upcoming letter.
Once again this year, to facilitate communication between home and school, every student will receive a school agenda. Please take the time to read the introductory pages as there is important information regarding safety routines, school activities, homework, etc.
We have included a package of information for your perusal and ask that you fill out the forms and return them to your child's teacher by the end of the week.
We are in need of volunteers to keep our Kiss N' Go safe arrival program running smoothly and ask you to call Bonnie Hamburgh, our office administrator, or Lorraine Bate Boerop, your Parent Council co-chair, if you are able to spare 30 minutes once every 2 weeks. Please remeber that there is noparking in front of the school between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. daily and that the school parking lot is reserved for TDSB employees only between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. If you wish to accompany your child into the school, parking is available on both Park Road and Crescent Road.
