Rosedale School News
Rosedale School has spirit and our students celebrated Literacy Week with “Harry Potter Day" on January 28th. Our school was transformed into Hogwarts for a day where students and staff dressed up as their favourite book characters. Our special day included a red dragon left in the hallway by Hagrid! Calgary's puppet and childrens' theatre company, The Green Fools, donated their 25 foot long Dragon, commissioned by the City of Calgary in 2012 to mark the Lunar New Year, to Rosedale School. The Rosedale dragon now lives in the basement waiting to pop up for Lunar New Year celebrations and special events! Thank you to the Green Fools for the donation! The Green Fools can be seen on Instagram and have a children's segment called GFN - Green Fools News, with activities for children and families.February 12th marked the Lunar New Year of the 'Ox' and students also celebrated Valentine's Day by wearing PJs, red, white and red and bringing in a stuffed animal for the day. Grades One and Two teachers, Mrs. Rathje and Mrs. Rita, had their students write a Valentine for every person in the school. Over 250 Valentines were displayed for a week on a bulletin board before each student safely unclipped their Valentine and enjoyed a personal message handwritten on each one. Delightful!​
Rosedale Grade Two News Articles
February was Black History Month and at Rosedale, and Canadian history was woven into our curriculum highlighting persons who have and or are contributing to positive changes. Grade 2 students learned about Canadian business woman and civil libertarian, Viola Desmond; as seen on our ten dollar bill.
Below are two news articles written by Grade two students at Rosedale after learning about Viola Desmond's demonstration for human rights:Viola was driving in her car. Then it broke down so she went to the movie theatre. She asked for a ticket for the down stairs. Then someone tapped her on the shoulder. He asked her to go the balcony but she refused to. Then he called the manager but she refused again. The manager called the police. The police took Viola to jail. She couldn't sleep. The next day she was taken to court.

It all started with Viola's car breaking down, she found a movie theatre. She asked for a down stairs ticket and went down stairs. She felt a tap on her shoulder…a person said you don't belong here. She refused and then she called the manager then he called the police, they put her in jail. She changed the future.

Rosedale Grade 9 Fundraisers
As per Rosedale tradition, our Grade 9 students usually go sailing, but in order to maintain safe cohorts, we are unable to travel outside of our province this year. Our Grade 9 students have continued to fundraise for their year-end celebration. We are disappointed they cannot sail this school year, but hopeful we will be afforded a way to choose a safe way to celebrate their time together as a class; some of whom have been together since Kindergarten for 10 years! Our students will continue to safely fundraise as part of their focus on team building for Health, PE, Leadership and other curriculum areas. Parents, students and the school will work together to determine how to use funds generated, and we will share updates with our community as this unfolds.
 
Bottle Drives are Saturdays from 9:00am - 12:00pm. Safety protocols are followed for students and families. You are invited to drop off bottles in our school parking lot, arrange for porch pick up, or take your bottles to the North Hill Bottle Depot to donate the funds to Grade 9 students. Community flyers are distributed or call the school for more information.
 
Bottle Drive Dates: Feb 27March 20April 24
