Principal's Corner

Hello Rosedale Families,

I wanted to say thank you to all the students and families for raising money for our annual Rosedale Run. Approximately $6000 was raised to go toward buying more Chromebooks for students. Also, a big thank you to the Rosedale Parent Group as well as any other parents that volunteered to help out with this fund raising activity.

Classroom Feature: Music

The upper grades have been learning the notes on the staff and connecting music to other subjects areas, such as art and literature. The lower grades are demonstrating the form (pattern) of classical pieces by performing contrasting movements to various sections.

The Spring Concert was a huge success, and now we are looking forward to our Variety Show, “Seize the Day” on June 4th. Look for details soon!

Parent Tips

Join us at Hillsboro’s Latino Cultural Festival and march with Rosedale Families in the parade. Meet at the Washington County Courthouse lawn at 11:30 am on May 19th. Look for the Rosedale School banner.

Started in 2004, the annual Latino Cultural Festival was originally designed to help connect the Latino business community with other local businesses. It has now developed in to a very proud tradition, in which we celebrate the diversity in Hillsboro. Featuring Latino art, food, entertainment and so much more, the Latino Cultural festival offers a chance for our community to welcome and embrace the traditions of the Latino Community. The festival is a free community event open to anyone interested in attending.
