Dear Rosenauer Families,
This past week Rosenauer celebrated “Read Across America Week.” Students had a great time wearing funny hats, wearing their favorite jersey and mismatching their clothes. Most of all, students celebrated reading! Please continue to encourage your child/children to read often. Also, they should be working regularly on Raz-Kids, as well.
Students in grades 3 and 4 participated in “Jump Rope for Heart” back on the 17th of February. Their hard work and the efforts of Ms. Hoffman and the many volunteers helped raise an incredible $3,124.37. Once again, the hearts of the students and the community prove to be bigger than the building. Thank you so much for your efforts students, staff and parents!
Next week we begin the PARCC testing. Students in grade 3 will take the test first. The test will take about 2 hours every day and will finish around 11:30. Attendance that week is very important. Students who miss a day will need to make it up. All students should get a good night’s sleep and have a nutritious breakfast each and every morning. Studies also show that students who are hydrated perform better on standardized tests. Although this test will not be used for placement purposes, we would like our students to try their best! Thank you for your cooperation.
As always, have a wonderful weekend!
