Read Like a Pirate!

Hi folks, Jon Wennstrom here! This month, we have had many adventures in reading with our "Treasure a Good Book" theme! We have found pirate booty, gone on treasure hunts through the school, read below the decks, and finally dressed like pirates and read in a pirate ship!  Our teachers started the year with a pirate theme and we have kept that theme going for our students.  We hope your child enjoyed the fun activities and more importantly, we hope that sparked a love of reading for our students.  As Walt Disney stated, "There is more treasure in books than in all the Pirate's Loot on Treasure Island"!
Treasure a Good Book!

MEET THE ROSEDALE STAFF
Tammy Jedd - Rosedale Lunch Cook
I have worked in the LPS food service for over 10 years. I received my Serve Safe certificate and settled down in Rosedale four years as the kitchen manager. I live in Livonia with my husband Keith and we have five daughters who all graduated from Stevenson High School. We have a cute lab/chow mix named Chuckie who loves to chase the deer and roam our property by the creek.

My favorite thing about Rosedale is the caring staff and children who love to help each other and also me in the lunch room. The safeties and volunteers are so good with the younger children and it shows with the hugs they receive from them. They are reliable and eager to help me with setting up and taking down daily.

My favorite pastimes have recently changed with my daughters graduating. I am not longer a soccer/track mom. Now the days are more relaxing with time spent with family, traveling, movies, and nights by the fire pit. But not for long, as my two grandsons have started kindergarten and will soon have scouts, sports, and cheer!
