Principal's Page from Heather Schumacher

Dear Rose Families,

It is hard to believe that we are saying goodbye to the first part of the school year! Although there are great memories and moments of 2021, I believe many of us are ready to welcome in a new year in hopes of more stability, normalcy, health, and happiness. I am so proud of the efforts of our Rose students, families, and staff as everyone persevered through the many challenges that were presented at school this year. The success of our students this year is a result of the strong partnership between parents and staff. Thank you for instilling your confidence in our Rose staff to keep students safe and engaged. I am grateful to be a part of the Rose community and hope your family finds joy and togetherness during the weeks of winter break.

Please read below for school and district news.

  • PTO- thank you so much for the staff appreciation treats. Staff were delighted and excited by all of the treats each day--from cozy socks to healthy smoothies to yummy cookies and so much more, each day brought moments of joy and gratitude! Thank you for your kindness.

  • Internet Safety- Please read the following letter regarding how to keep your kids safe at home on the Internet from Ty Gorman, our Director of Instructional Technology.

  • COVID Updates- We have three positive student COVID cases reported at Rose School this week. You can also check the district COVID Dashboard for up-to-date district COVID information if you have additional questions about positive cases and quarantines.

  • Winter Sing-along - The staff has been working hard preparing for this afternoon’s Winter Sing-along. Students will be socially distanced.

Happy Holidays!

Warmly,

Heather Schumacher, Rose Principal

A Message from Rose PTO

Rose PTO wishes all our families a very happy and safe holiday season! We thank you for your support of the PTO all year long. It takes many parents to put together all the activities and programs that we support and we couldn't do it without all the parent volunteers and donations. We have a very exciting second half of the school year coming up so if you're interested in volunteering, please email roseptoinfo@gmail.com. Cheers to 2022!

Staff Holiday Week

Every year the PTO allocates funds to purchase surprise gifts/treats for staff during the holidays. Last week the PTO showered Rose Staff with something special every day of the week. They received a Crumbl Cookie and Calibre Coffee on Monday, Holiday Candles on Tuesday, Holiday Socks on Wednesday, freshly made Smoothies by our very own Rose Alumni family Jolie Davis and RAW Inc. on Thursday, and Holiday Soaps and Hand Sanitizers on Friday. Thank you to all our staff who go above and beyond for our Rose students! We wish you a wonderful winter break!

Lunchroom Volunteers

We are looking for help in the lunchroom. Please consider volunteering for a day to supervise and help us maintain our safety protocols as students eat lunch. Your consideration is much appreciated! Sign up HERE for JANUARY.
