Fall Festival

Why: The Fall Festival is a great way to continue building relationships at Rosewood, but also serves as a major fundraiser to help our 5th graders take a trip to Atlanta, Georgia in the spring. Please plan to support our students by attending, and feel free to invite your friends and family. We will be setting up an event using Facebook and encourage you to share and invite others.

YOU can be DAD OF THE WEEK at Rosewood

This is a fun new way for dads to get involved at Rosewood. We are hoping to honor one dad each week for the remainder of the school year. The "Dad of the Week" will have a few duties (welcoming students, playing at recess, attending a special lunch, listening to students read, and a menu of other options), but will also be honored and celebrated.

To participate as Dad of the Week, you must be an approved volunteer through the school district. (LINK FOR THE APPLICATION:

After signing up as an approved volunteer, please go to the following VolunteerSpot Sign up to reserve your week :


" To become the most EXTRAORDINARY public International Baccalaureate school in the country".

We invite you to take part in a video we will be creating to show what the vision looks like through the eyes of teachers, parents, students and the community. Please use the following hashtags on social media. We will use this platform to compile photos and videos about Rosewood working towards this vision.



Together we can visualize the things we are doing to make a difference and stay motivated to work towards making our vision a reality. Having the perspective of all members of our school community will make the video much more meaningful.
