1st Annual Art and Movement Social

Art & Movement Ice Cream Social

We are so excited for Rose Glen’s first Art & Movement ice cream social!! So many awesome learning experiences take place throughout our school, and the art and physical education classrooms are no exception! We hope you can attend this fun and interactive night and enjoy some ice cream on behalf of our fantastic PTO. In order to appropriately plan our ice cream quantities, we are asking your help by completing this VERY SHORT survey. Please submit only one survey per family.

Lost and Found - So Many Items We Needed 2 Pictures!!!

Please take a look at the items below and let us know if you recognize any of them. As many of you are aware, we tend to accumulate A LOT of lost items throughout the year. Each week we will send a picture of lost items for you to claim. If they are not claimed then we will ensure that they go to a donation center in our area. What is most helpful is if you label your child's clothing and school items. We can then easily identify the item and make sure that the lost item is found and hopefully also save you a trip to have to buy another one. Please label items such as jackets, sweatshirts, water bottles, and lunchboxes. Thank you for your help with this and looking forward to year with minimal lost items :) Please email Cathe Sweet at csweet@waukesha.k12.wi.us if you recognize any of the items.

You are welcome to come to school and look through the Lost and Found for your child's belongings, so you don't have to rely exclusively on our pictures.

Please contact us asap because all items will be donated on Friday, May 3rd, 2019.

If your family has moved out of the Rose Glen attendance area during the year, or will be moving this summer, please let us know so that we can have this information as we plan for next year. If you moved to a different house within our attendance area, be sure to update your address in your parent portal in Infinite Campus.

Grandparents' Day - Friday, May 10th


FRIDAY, MAY 10th, 2019

9 a.m. to 10:45 a.m.

This event is for AM 4K through 5th grade

(PM 4K will be hosting their Grandparents Day separately.

More information will be sent home on that.)

Some important information regarding this special day:

  • We are very excited to start planning our 2019 Grandparents/Friends Day. Guest do not have to be grandparents. In the past we have had aunts, uncles, family friends and even parents participate in this special day. If a child is unable to have a guest attend, they will still be able to participate in the morning’s activities. Please Note the 4K schedule: 4K PM Class will hold their Grandparents Day separately. Shuttles are not available for the PM 4K.

  • Rose Glen’s parking lot and adjacent streets cannot accommodate the number of people participating in this day. Therefore, a free shuttle service from St. John Neumann Catholic Church (2400 West State Highway 59) to Rose Glen is provided. We strongly encourage all guests to use this free service. Also, there is no parking allowed on the “non school” side of Brookhill Drive. The shuttles will start to pick up after 8:30 a.m. at the earliest from St. John Neumann and they will start returning grandparents to their vehicles starting at 10:45 a.m.

  • There will be treats and coffee in the gym for our guest as they arrive starting AFTER 8:30 a.m. (If you are volunteering to send in treats, please make sure that they are pre-packaged/store bought or purchased from a licensed bakery. This is a district food policy.) Several volunteers will be directing the guest where to go and how to get to the gym and the correct classrooms.

  • **BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND** The Scholastic Book Fair will be taking place before, during and after Grandfriends Day. This will be a buy one, get one free book fair. More information on the Book Fair will be sent home soon.

  • We had over 600 Grandparents/friends last year. Volunteers on the day of the event are greatly appreciated. **WE WILL BE USING SIGN UP GENIUS FOR ALL VOLUNTEERS, TREATS, WATER, ETC…PLEASE SIGN UP SOON! The link for Sign Up Genius will be sent soon! SIGN UP GENIUS WILL CLOSE ON MAY 8TH**

  • Reminder: All children must stay at school after the event is over. Due to the liability issues and to avoid disruption to the afternoon schedules, Grandparents/Friends will NOT be able to leave the building with their Grandchild/Friend. Thank you for your understanding.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

We are looking forward to a great event!

We have all been hearing about the measles outbreaks occurring around the country, and the seriousness of this disease. Measles can be spread very easily by people who are sick but do not yet have any symptoms. Measles outbreaks have been identified in New York City, New York State, Michigan, Washington State, New Jersey, and two counties in California. Regarding exposure and transmission of measles, the CDC provides the following information:

"Measles is a highly contagious virus that lives in the nose and throat mucus of an infected person. It can spread to others through coughing and sneezing. Also, measles virus can live for up to two hours in an airspace where the infected person coughed or sneezed. If other people breathe the contaminated air or touch the infected surface, then touch their eyes, noses, or mouths, they can become infected. Measles is so contagious that if one person has it, up to 90% of the people close to that person who are not immune will also become infected. Infected people can spread measles to others from four days before through four days after the rash appears."
