Artisans at Work – Contact Festival Show

“Memory is all: reality exists only in the present moment and the past only exists in our memories. The mind is like a room with countless doors, each one concealing a memory. Some doors become locked, keeping the past hidden. Nostalgia unlocks memories from the depths of oblivion.” —Rosedale student Calum Csunyoscka.

Join the Grade 12 class of Rosedale Heights School of the Arts as they explore the theme of nostalgia through images. The show includes photography, graphics, print, drawings and paintings. The show runs for the month of May and is part of the contact festival.
The opening is on Friday May 2nd at Artisans at Work on the South-West side of Danforth near Woodbine station. See the poster for further details or visit http://www.artisans-at-work.com

Culminating Activities and June Exams


Grades 9 & 10 Parent and Student Assessment Calendar 2013-2014
Grades 11 & 12 Parent and Student Assessment Calendar 2013-2014

Our next report card will be the final one in June.  As we begin our final term we would like to remind you of the following information.

The Ministry of Education requires that all courses have a 30% exam and/or culminating activity towards the end of the course.  Your son or daughter will receive an outline of the 30% summative evaluation for each course shortly. In addition, they will also receive a copy of the Culminating Activities Calendar in their home form to help plan and organise their workload. We have included a copy of it in this mailing for your reference and it will also be posted on the school website at www.rhsa.ca.

If your son or daughter is required to do a culminating activity for a course, all of the work for this 30% evaluation must be done during class time under teacher supervision. Therefore, attendance is critical for each and every day of class from now until the end of the school year.

Some of the final assessments will be in-class tests.  Those dates will be provided to students shortly.  Common exams take place in Math and Science courses on June 17, 18 and 19th.

All absences from culminating activities and exams require a medical note.  This note must specifically state that your son or daughter was too ill to be at school on the required day.

It is critical that you not schedule early vacations or other summer activities before June 20th.

Final Report card: 
Term Mark 70% including December exam weighted at 10%
Final Exam/Culminating Activity 30%

We appreciate your support in ensuring that your son or daughter remains in full time attendance during this important evaluation period.

- Principal Barrie Sketchley,
