Due to some late additions to available items to bid on (Including a gift basket from The Pantry, Chiropractic or Acupuncture care at the Ashbridges Health Centre, and 2 Pints of Ice Cream from Ed’s Read Scoop), we’ve decided to extend the bidding period until Sunday Dec 10 at 11:45pm. Be sure to get your bids in!
See what is available and make a bid!

Roden Staff has completed their School Improvement plan for 2018. Please feel free to download the DOC file, have a look, and communicate any questions or concerns you have to email@example.com and we will be sure to pass your comments on to the Principal. You may also contact her directly if you would prefer.
In previous years, Roden School Council has run a major fundraiser in the Fall, asking parents and families to sponsor students and also to donate your time and energies in volunteering to run the activities. In 2016, over $11,000 was raised towards equipment for the Maker Space in the Library, which is used by students at all levels, including our fantastic 3D printer.
This year, we are introducing a Direct Donation Program – no need to volunteer your time for this one! – to continue your support towards educational enrichment for our students.
Our goal this year is to raise funds for Kindergarten / Primary Literacy and Intermediate / Senior Technology equipment. Money raised will benefit all Roden students, this year and beyond. We are suggesting a donation of $25, but please give what you can; even small donations add up.
A donation mailout will be in student backpacks soon, but if you can’t wait you and Roden friends and family anywhere in the world can help support your child’s education by using the information below to support our school.

Labelling clothing, bags and lunchboxes is a great way to keep them out of the Lost and Found and make sure they make it back home at the end of the day. If you choose to buy stick on labels, we’d love for you to do it through our Fundraiser with Mabel’s Labels.
Just go to www.campaigns.mabelslabels.com and select “Roden P.S. School Council (Toronto)” from the list of schools. Your labels cost the same price as usual, and Council gets a little extra money to support health initiatives such as the Nitwits lice check program. This is an ongoing program – use it now for Holiday items and winter wear, and again in the future as you stock up on all things label!
In other School Council news, the Summer Send-Off accounts have been added up and we’re delighted to announce the event raised just over $4,000 for cultural enrichment activities in the school. Watch out for information about performances etc, during school time, for all students to enjoy!
