It’s Almost Lunar New Year!

On Sunday, January 22nd it will be Lunar New Year!  We will recognize Lunar New Year at the school on Monday, January 23rd.  We welcome all those who celebrate the holiday to dress up in traditional New Year clothing, if they wish. And we welcome all our students to get into the spirit, even in the absence of traditional clothing, by dressing in red on Monday, January 23rd.  The colour red is thought to symbolize good luck, so please help us usher in the Year of the Rabbit with some colourful good fortune!

Kindergarten Registration for 2023-2024

Kindergarten registration for September 2023 begins on January 20, 2023 for the 2023-24 school year.  Children who turn four or five years old during 2023, live within the school boundary, and whose parents or guardians are public school tax supporters will be eligible to register for Kindergarten.

There are several ways you can register for Kindergarten:

  • Online – Families can access the online Kindergarten registration information at yrdsb.ca/kindergarten. It is recommended that families use a laptop or a desktop, rather than a mobile device to complete this registration.
  • By email – Families can download the Elementary School Registration Form at yrdsb.ca/kindergarten and email the completed form to rosedale.ps@yrdsb.ca.
  • In-person at the school – Families may visit the school office to drop off or complete a registration form.

If you require support to complete the registration form or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the school office at 905-882-1864 or by email at rosedale.ps@yrdsb.ca.

Once you have completed your application, the school will contact you to make an appointment to review and verify the required documents.

Our Kindergarten programs are caring and welcoming where children learn through exploration, play and inquiry. You can learn more at www.yrdsb.ca/kindergarten.  We look forward to welcoming new students and their families to our school in September!

As a reminder, if you are having your photo retaken, remember to avoid wearing anything green (so you don’t blend into the background).  And don’t forget to smile!
