A Year of Innovation

Hi folks, Jon Wennstrom here! Each year before the students return, our staff members have professional development designed to help us grow as educators. This year, we all read the book "The Innovator's Mindset" which discussed ways that we can make our classrooms dynamic and student-centered learning environments. I'm excited to start a new school year and see what innovative and exciting lessons our teachers develop! Learning should be fun and at Rosedale we strive to make our classrooms places where curiosity is encouraged and developed. It's going to be a great year at Rosedale!

Rosedale staff members are ready to innovate!!


Tuesday, September 6: First Day of School for Students! (12:10 dismissal)
Wednesday, September 7: First full day for students (3:59 dismissal & lunch served)
Thursday, September 8: PTA Meeting 6:30 pm (all parents welcome & childcare provided)

Thursday, September 15: Open House from 6:00-6:30 pm / Curriculum Night 6:30-7:00 pm


For the past two years, Rosedale has been recognizing our staff members with the "Meet the Staff" segment. While we will continue this tradition for our new staff members, we are also going to expand this segment to include leaders through the Livonia Public Schools system. Next week, we will kick off this segment with a special feature of our superintendent, Mrs. Andrea Oquist. I hope you will enjoy hearing from our LPS leadership team!

  • Our first PTA meeting will be held this Thursday, September 8 at 6:30 pm in the Library
  • Meetings are open to all Rosedale parents and community members!
  • Pizza and childcare are provided for all meetings.

Did you know that Rosedale starts off every Monday morning with a "Celebrate Monday" assembly? It's a chance to get together as a whole school and start our week off on a positive note. We talk about themes like respect, gratitude, and teamwork and often watch a short inspirational video. It's a fun way to build community and develop those important character skills that help with academics and social skills. Great things are happening at Rosedale!
