School Report Card

Dear Families,


As you may be aware, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has released the 2018-2019 state School Report Cards for all public schools in Wisconsin. I’m writing you today to share our scores so that as a school community we can celebrate our success!


The Report Cards are intended to help all schools and districts utilize data on specific measures to target improvement efforts to ensure students are ready for the next educational step – including the next grade level, graduation, college, and careers. According to the data, we significantly exceeded expectations again for the 2018-2019 school year. We are proud of our accomplishments and the growth made by our students.


It is important to remember that one test score taken on one day does not reflect your child’s overall progress. However, our Report Card highlights our collective efforts to ensure that all students are reaching their highest potential. We could not do it without your support and your continued commitment to your child and to our school.


You can access our School Report Card here. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any further questions.

Staff Scrip

The holidays are a great time to say “Thank You” to all of the teachers and staff that make Rose Glen a wonderful school for our children. The Staff Scrip Holiday Gift Card Program has been so well received these last several years, we are once again offering this opportunity.


Here’s how it works:


You voluntarily make any monetary gift to the teachers/staff members of your choice on behalf of your child/family. Your gift is then combined with all the other gifts for that particular staff member, and thus “snowballed” into a larger monetary amount to purchase a Scrip Gift Card of that staff members choice. The Scrip Gift Cards will be given to the staff members just before holiday break.


To give a gift from your child(ren)/family, please complete the following steps:


  1. Complete the attached form listing the gift amount by the staff member you are choosing to give a gift. (NOTE: please make sure amounts are in $1 increments with a minimum of $1 per recipient).
  2. Send the total amount of money and the completed form in a sealed envelope to school addressed “Staff Scrip”, no later than Friday, November 22th
  3. Please make checks payable to Rose Glen PTO, and double check that all the amounts add up to the Total Gift Amount you listed on the attached form.


If you have any questions, feel free to contact: Megan Peterson at megan@megndale.com


Thank you all for your continued support, and have a wonderful holiday season!

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:
