Learning and Growing

Hi folks, Jon Wennstrom here! This sure was a hard post to write after sending out the notice last week. For those of you who may not have heard, I will be assuming the position of principal at Buchanan Elementary here in Livonia Public Schools for the 2017-2018 school year. I will certainly miss the staff, students and parents from Rosedale and you have my promise that my heart and head will be here with our community through the end of the school year. Although change is hard (especially when you have grown to love a community like I have with Rosedale), change is necessary for learning and growing. I've worked in several different classrooms and several different schools in the past 22 years and I have learned from each experience and grown from each change. So, although I will miss this community, I'm embracing change with a spirit of adventure and new learning. It's what I ask of our students each and every day, so how could I do any less than that? Thank you for helping me learn and grow Rosedale community!

We will kick off the theme on Monday with a video in the gym and wrap up with a week opportunity to read in a room that will decorated in a space theme! A calendar of events will be coming home so you can keep track of the fun with your child. Great things are happening at Rosedale!
