On Thursday October 22nd, Rosedale’s Musical Theatre Program presents our annual revue. This year, it’s titled “How do you Measure a Year?”.
The show is at 7pm, and acts as a fundraiser for our main stage show in April. Tickets are $5 for students/ seniors and $10 for adults. Tickets go on sale starting Monday at lunch in the box office, or can be purchased at the door the night of the show. Hope to see you there!
In Toronto Life‘s latest ranking of the city’s neighbourhoods, the area of Rosedale-Moore Park was rated the best neighbourhood for schools. This was, they say, in large part due to its proximity to Rosedale Heights School of the Arts!
Every year the students of Rosedale support cancer research by making donations to the Terry Fox Foundation. Going on a walk through the neighbourhood and holding a barbeque fundraiser allows the school to come together and raise money for an important cause. On September 25th the entire school participated in the 35th annual Terry Fox Walk by walking 3 kilometres through the streets of Rosedale. The goal was $2000, but thanks to our spectacular students we raised over $2900! According to our student body president, Riley, “it was a great experience and I loved working with the new student council team”. On the Thursday before the walk, student council hosted a Terry Fox Barbeque fundraiser for cancer. Everyone was outside eating food, listening to music and supporting the event. “Cheap food, big smiles, and a good cause!” says Quincy, an excited student. This event was a great success and an amazing start to the new school year!
Have you ever wondered if it truly takes 15 minutes to get from the dance studios to the geography rooms? Does your child’s English teacher actually talk like Hugh Grant? And how often do our math teachers really hold tests? Find the answers to these and other questions at our curriculum night on Thursday 24th September, 2015, when you’ll have an opportunity to experience an abbreviated version of your son or daughter’s timetable. Here’s the agenda:
- 6–6:25 p.m. Timetables and schedules available
- 6:30 p.m. Auditorium “Assembly”
- 6:55 p.m. Dismissal to attend classes
- 7-9:00 p.m. Modified 2-day class schedule
In addition to our classroom teachers and administrators, there will also be a guidance counselor in the guidance office throughout the evening to discuss university entrance and other issues of concern to parents.
On Friday, 18th September, we are inviting all our grade 9 students to participate in a day of fun-filled activities at the Adventure Valley Leadership Centre. Your daughter, son, or ward should have given you the following letter and permission form, which must be returned to the school in order for them to participate: Grade 9 Trip
We hope that all our grade 9s will be able to attend!
The first day of school this year is Tuesday, 8th September, 2015. Timetables will be available for collection in the gym from 8:30am – 9:30am. If you are a grade 9 student who attended the orientation day last Wednesday, you have your timetable already so you don’t need to arrive until 9:30 am. Here’s the schedule for the first day of school:
- Home Form (Day 1, Period 1): 9:30 – 10:00 am
- Day 2, Period 1: 10:00 – 10:30 am

We wish our new and returning students much success in the forthcoming academic year, and we’ll see you all on Tuesday.
Our grade 9 orientation will be taking place on Wednesday, 2nd September, 2015.
It is designed to help our new students make a smooth transition to high school, and will give them an opportunity to take part in informal activities with their peers, meet some of their teachers, and have their questions answered. They’ll also be introduced to our student council, principal, and vice-principals. There will be a pizza lunch on the lawn, after which students will be given their timetables and have a chance to explore the school.
Check in is from 8:30 am, with the day starting at 9:00 am. We expect to wrap up at around 1:00 pm.
