Hi folks, Jon Wennstrom here! You may remember that last year, I participated in the No Shave November or "Movember" to help raise awareness for men's health. This year, I will be joined again by several LPS administrators as we say no to the razor for the month of November! There are so many good causes to help with, just like our Livonia Goodfellows. Our 2nd Grade team is once again coordinating a Canned Food Drive through the entire month. Each Friday, students may bring in canned food items for an opportunity to participate in a Friday activity like "bring a stuffed animal to school day". At Rosedale, we make service fun for students!

Amal Ayyash-English Language Support Paraprofessional
My name is Amal Ayyash and I was born in Kuwait and grew up in Livonia.  I went to Cleveland Elementary, Emerson and Frost Junior High and Graduated from Bentley High School.  I attended Oakland Community College and then got married to my husband of 31 years.  I have four beautiful adult children that also attended LPS and are all college graduates with careers.  I started working for LPS in 2002 in the ELL department and love what I do.  

My goals are to reach a level of proficiency with my students in all content areas.  I will also support and assist the teachers in the areas that our students are in need of. I feel honored to be a part of the staff at Rosedale.  

My Five Words for Rosedale Elementary are attentive, positive, responsible, safe and HAPPY!!

Did you know that the term "Movember" actually comes from the Australian slang for mustache? It is often called a "Mo" and therefore the term Movember for growing out a mustache or beard. In America, we usually call it "No Shave November", but the cause is the same. This year, the principals from Livonia are again putting away the razors to raise awareness for men's health! Great things are happening at Rosedale! 
Week 1 of "Movember"!
