Early Release Day

Students will be released from class on Thursday, April 18th at 1:40 p.m. Please be sure that your child knows where they should go on this early dismissal day. On our last early release day there were a few mix ups because parents didn't realize the students were being dismissed early.

No School

School will not be in session on Friday, April 19th due to Good Friday. School resumes on Monday, April 22nd. Happy Easter!

Upcoming Dining Nights - April 23 and May 9th

Culver Dining Night

Our next dining night will be at Culver's (on Sunset Drive) from 5-8 pm on Tuesday, April 23rd. Here's your chance to take the family for a delicious butterburger and some custard and help you school at the same time!

Orange Leaf Dining Night

On May 9th, Orange Leaf will host a dining night for Rose Glen from 4 - 9 p.m. Maybe dessert for dinner on this date?? If not, then at the very least go there for dessert...creamy frozen yogurt with your choice of toppings. YUM! What could be better?

Guatemala Connection News

Rose Glen Families, you did it again! Through your kids' purchases of the Guatemala items over the past year and a half, we were able to send $3100 which they can use to renovate their "kitchen" in which they prepare a snack/lunch for their 700+ students every day. Their current space is very very small. They will be able to expand it quite a bit. Southminster Presbyterian Church of Waukesha was also able to raise $2000 to send as well. Construction is beginning right away!

Friends of our partnership will be purchasing additional craft items from the market in Chichicastenango for our future fundraising. We are excited for them to bring back some new things as well as old favorites! Look for the opportunity to continue to support this wonderful partnership later this spring.

Many of our students have made a small drawing/project to send to students at Flavio Rodas. Appropriately, they have centered around the theme of winter fun!

Two of these Guatemalan travelers are very special to the Rose Glen family. They are Bud and Sara Hudson. Sara is a former Rose Glen teacher, and Bud is a former Carroll College chemistry professor. They are responsible for starting our partnership 31 years ago in 1988. They believe this will be their last visit to Guatemala to visit the dear friends they have made there over the years. Sara will be celebrating her 80th birthday while they are there.

Lost and Found

Please take a look at the below items 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. As winter approaches please make sure that you label boots, snow pants, hats, and mittens. Black snow pants seem to be a favorite here at Rose Glen and so labeling them will ensure that everyone has their own black snow pants and that if a pair gets lost then we can ensure it gets to the right child. 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, April 5th, 2019.

Chicken BBQ Raffle

Just a reminder of how much we depend on donations to classroom baskets for our Chicken BBQ raffle! The classroom baskets are the "WOW" factor of the whole raffle along with the other fabulous donations we get from businesses and individual family donations. Each classroom has a "theme" for their basket and any donation large or small to help fill the baskets is very much appreciated. Everyone is so busy, so if you don't have time to shop for a physical item related to the theme, you can send cash or a check and the parent basket coordinator for your child's classroom will pool the money brought in and purchase items for the basket. Please consider donating either way, so we have the best classroom baskets ever! Thanks so much for all you do for our school! The raffle is so successful because of the support of our wonderful and generous families.

Maybe your family has something they would love to donate such as a gift card, season tickets to a sporting event or theatrical event. Put together your own family basket highlighting something your family loves to do, or a couple hours of a service you could offer.

No donation is too small or too BIG!! All donations are welcomed, wanted and greatly appreciated. We display as many donations as possible in our front window. Contact PTO Raffle Chair, Kim Edwards at 414-841-8366 if you have a donation to offer.

Upcoming Dining Nights

Our next Dining Night will be on Tuesday, April 23rd at Culver's (Sunset Location) from 5 p.m. - 8 p.m. Stop in during these hours and have a delicious burger and custard!

The May Dining Night will be on Thursday, May 9th at Orange Leaf Dining Night (Sunset Location) from 4 p.m.- 9 p.m. Ice cream for dinner...why not? Definitely a great dessert too.

By attending one or both of these events, you can have dinner out and help raise money for your school.
