Katie Rose, Counselor

My name is Katie Rose and I am so excited to be joining the Hooker Oak family as the new full-time school counselor! I grew up and went to school in Paradise. I attended Butte, Chico State, Sacramento State, and most currently, Concordia Irvine University. I earned my bachelor's degree in child development and completed my multiple subject teaching credential at Sacramento State. I have been an elementary school teacher for the last four years here in Chico and in Paradise. I taught 4th grade for one year in Paradise and 5th grade for three years in Chico. I love exploring our parks in Chico with my dogs, relaxing with a good book, and gardening in my backyard. I cannot wait to meet and get to know all the amazing students and staff here at Hooker Oak and support you all through this school year!

Symptom Guide

Please review the Student Symptom Guide and be vigilant about completing a Daily Wellness Check for your child. DO NOT send your child to school if he/she exhibits ANY of the symptoms. If our staff becomes aware of any of these symptoms, we will call and ask that your child be picked up immediately.


Thank you for helping us keep our school open and our school community safe!

Stay Pawsitive Bulletin Board-Photos Needed!

We have an awesome new bulletin board outside of our office. Mrs. Rose, our amazing school counselor, would like for students to being in a picture of themselves with their pet(s). You can turn it into Mrs. Rose, your teacher, or to the office.


Thank you!

Parent Volunteer Vaccination Requirement

AS you know, Hooker Oak thrives because of our amazing parent volunteers. We want to make sure that everyone has time to prepare for the new requirement that will go into effect on October 15th. All parent volunteers will be required to show proof of vaccination from COVID-19. If you have any questions about this requirement, please feel free to reach out to the school office.

We Need Sprouty Store Donations and a Parent Helper!

We are so excited to bring the Sprouty Store to our students this year! We have created a Wish List on Amazon of items that students can purchase in the Sprouty Store with their Sprouty Dollars. Our plan is to have the store open during lunch on the last Friday of the month, starting on September 24th. We would greatly appreciate donations to our Sprouty Store! You can click here to view the Wish List, or scan the QR code below. Items will be shipped directly to the school.


We also need a parent volunteer to run the Sprouty Store. It would be a 2 hour a month commitment and a fantastic way to fulfill your volunteer commitment to our school! Not to mention, you will be making kiddos extremely happy! If you are interested, please contact Principal Emily at emullins@chicousd.org.
