Welcome August! We hope this newsletter finds you enjoying the last few weeks of summer. We are busy getting ready for the start of the school year and can't wait to see everyone in just a couple of weeks. Construction continues and the building is coming together. It is getting to the 'fun' part of construction when the paint, flooring, counters, and cabinets are being installed and it starts to all come together! All very exciting changes for our building. More importantly, the changes will enhance the overall safety of our building.

Back to School Tip of the Week

This is a great week to make sure that your IC (Infinite Campus) account is ready to go for the school year. Make sure address, phone numbers, emails, emergency contacts, etc. are updated. This makes for smooth start of the year and for the rest of the school year. You are able to update phone numbers and emails if they change throughout the year. This is also where you will be able to see your child's teacher for the year, bus information, report cards, grades, and assessment scores. It really serves as the hub of your child's information. Thanks for taking the time to do this and please let us know if you have any questions or need assistance. We would be more than happy to assist so that you are ready to go for the upcoming year! Just call the office at 262.970.2405.

Safe Arrival Attendance System

To enhance the existing absence reporting procedure, the School District of Waukesha introduced a new, more efficient student absence reporting system called "SafeArrival" which started at Rose Glen in October of 2018. This system works in conjunction with our district messenging system (School Messenger). It reduces the time it takes to verify student attendance, makes it easier for you to report your child’s absence and makes it easier for staff to respond to unexplained student absences. We would love to have all of our families using this system by the start of school.


Pre-Excused Absences: If you know your child is going to be absent and you want to report that before the student is marked absent in school, Safe Arrival provides three convenient methods:


1. Using your mobile device, download and install the SchoolMessenger app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store (or from the links at https://go.schoolmessenger.com). The first time you use the app, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.


2. Use the SafeArrival website, https://go.schoolmessenger.com. The first time you use the website, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.


3. Call the toll-free number 1-866-490-7371 to report an absence using the automated phone system. These options are available 24 hours/day, 7 days a week.


Future absences can be reported at any time.


Post-Excused Absences: If you were not able to report your child’s absence in advance you will be notified by the SchoolMessenger system if your child is marked absent.


You are notified of a reported absence within minutes of the reported absence.


The School Messenger app or the website will allow families to customize where they want to receive their notifications and allow them to excuse the absence right from the notification.


If you report your child’s absence in advance using the SafeArrival toll-free number, website or mobile app, you will NOT receive these notifications.


Additional assistance can be found on the District's Safe Arrival Support Page:

Lego League

FIRST Lego League at Rose Glen 2019

Rose Glen students will be able to once again have the opportunity to participate in Lego League! If your child is interested, please continue reading and fill out the interest form below. Meetings will begin at the start of the school year so don't delay!

FIRST Lego League Jr: Building Curiosity


FIRST Lego League Jr (students 1st-4th grade) challenges teams of children to explore a scientific concept, then build a model and code it to make it move using LEGO®Education WeDo 2.0. Teams present their poster and model at an expo in the area. For more information visit the FIRST Lego League Jr website.


This program is run by two or more adult coaches per team. In order to run these programs, we are looking for adult volunteers. Without volunteers, these programs will not be able to run! Teams will meet once a week at days/times set by parent volunteer coaches.


FIRST Lego League


In FIRST Lego League (FLL), students age 9 to 14 research a real-world problem and are challenged to develop a solution. They must also design, build, and program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS, then compete on a table-top playing field. For more information, visit the FIRST Lego League website.


*Our FLL teams (4th/5th graders) are currently at capacity from returning students, however if you are interested in having your child participate, we would love to help anyone interested in coaching get another team get started! Teams should meet twice a week to be prepared by the competition date.


Interested?Lego League season starts in early September, and ends with an expo event or competition usually in November or December. If you are interested in participating in or volunteering for either of the Lego League programs, please fill out the online interest form by Friday, August 23 in order to get teams assigned before school starts.
