Dear Raven Families,

We trust that you had a fun-filled summer and would like to welcome you to the 2019-20 school year. Beginning a new school year brings about enthusiasm for the “new” possibilities and starting fresh. Whether it’s new uniforms, new school supplies, a new grade, new classrooms, new teachers, new friends or a new schedule – there are many new pieces to create excitement for a new school year. We would like to take some time to extend a warm welcome to all of our new Raven families joining us and in particular our Kindergarten students who are beginning their school and RTCS journey. Please note our Kindergarten students will join us on a gradual entry program. A schedule of interviews and mini sessions has already gone out to our Kindergarten families.

The first day of school for our Grade One through to Grade 8 students will be Tuesday, September 3rd from 8:00 – 10:00 a.m. Students will spend the first day reconnecting and learning about Rosedale Traditional Community School procedures and routines. Students in Grades 6-8 will find their homeroom lists posted in the big gym, while students in Grades 1-5 are asked to report to their previous year’s classroom. If you are a new Grade 1-5 student we will ask that you check-in at the office and we will take you to the library. Don’t worry, there will be many adults and Leadership students available to help you find the right location.

The first day of school represents a regular day of instruction and therefore we will all be wearing our school uniform. If you need to order new clothing please do so online through our uniform supplier at: https://sapphirecreative.com/product-category/4-rosedale-traditional/ When you have some time, please take a moment to review with your student our RTCS Code of Citizenship. In particular the sections involving dress code and electronic devices.

Communication between home and school is vitally important. Please check our website, for information regarding the school calendar, bell schedule, school activities, and athletic events. You can also stay connected by “liking us” on facebook.

Enjoy the remaining days of your summer holiday. We are looking forward to seeing everyone in a few weeks.
