Put it in a Song

Hi folks, Jon Wennstrom here! One of the tricks educators learned long ago was that if you want children to remember something, put it in a song. We do this from learning our ABCs to nursery rhymes. Each morning, we recite our 3 to Be pledge to Be Respectful, Responsible, and Safe. This week for our Celebrate Monday assembly, we put that pledge into a Rosedale Risso song and had a great time singing our 3 to Be! I promised the students, I would bring the guitar out again on the last day to sing our song together again. Music can be a great tool for learning and remembering information in a fun way. So the next time you want to have fun with learning and remembering...put it in a song!

Carol Engle - Recording Secretary

Hello, my name is Carol Engle and I have served this past year as Recording Secretary for the Rosedale PTA.  My husband, Alan and I have a daughter, Rachel in 1st grade.  We have two cats that we rescued as kittens from our yard.  I enjoy volunteering in the classroom and with the ELVs (early literacy volunteers) program.  I am a Registered Nurse and specialize in obstetrics.  I am from Livonia and graduated from Bentley (last graduating class).  For fun, we enjoy watching our daughter at roller skating and swimming.  We love spending time with family and friends.  When we get the chance, we love to vacation on a lake with our toes in the sand!  

My goal for the Rosedale PTA is to support our fabulous school and bring together our Rosedale community for some fun events.

Five words I would use to describe Rosedale are welcoming, dedicated, friendly, caring, and encouraging.    

  • Spring Fling is right around the corner! Don't forget to send donations for the basket raffles. 
  • We will be welcoming our new Rosedale families at Round Up on June 1!

Did you know that all the money raised from the basket raffle goes toward technology for the school? In an effort to provide 21st Century learning environments for our students, we are doing our best to equip each classroom with mobile learning devices and programs to enhance student learning. We know that technology has the potential to give even the quietest student a voice. Great things are happening at Rosedale!
