Message from the Principal

Jo Ann Bettencourt - Principal

Our library has a wonderful opportunity to get some new books, but your help is needed. We have a wish list set up on Amazon (see link below). You can go to the list, simply purchase the item(s) on the wish list and they will be delivered to our school. What a great opportunity to give back to Rosedale during this holiday season. On Dec. 10, during our evening with Santa, we will be hosting a book fair in our library. Watch for a sign-up genius to be coming your way soon as the librarian will need help with the book fair.
