From The Principal

Dear Rosenauer Families,

I hope everyone’s summer is going well!  We have been very busy getting the building ready for another wonderful school year.  Our custodians are working hard to ensure that Rosenauer is the cleanest it’s ever been and the district has made several modifications to the HVAC system to improve the climate control in the building.  I am very pleased with the status of the school and am confident parents and students will also be impressed when we open on September 3rd. 

The ELEMENTARY PORTAL opens on MONDAY, AUGUST 25th.  You may use your Portal Access information to obtain students schedules at that time.

TRANSPORTATION:  Bus passes will be available on the portal on Wednesday, August 27th.  Please assist your child in learning their bus number and have them bring their bus pass to school for the first few weeks.  Children in Kindergarten and First Grade should wear their bus pass for the first two weeks of school as well.  If you are unable to print your bus pass, you can go to the Administration Building on either Friday, Aug. 29 or Tuesday, Sept. 2 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Important dates for your calendar:

Back to School Night

Sept. 17 – Grades 3, 4, 5 – 7 PM

Oct. 1st Grades Pre-K – 2 – 7 PM

(AM Pre-K & AM K will begin at 6:30 PM in classroom

Back in June the teaching staff sent home packets to help prevent “The Summer Slide”.   The program includes a continuation of the Raz-Kids program for literacy, a new IXL Math program and incorporates the Destiny library program.  These 3 internet based programs will help all students to keep their literacy and math skills sharp over the summer and help reduce the loss of important skills that tends to occur during a long break from school.    All three programs are designed to track student participation.  Students with high participation in the program will be rewarded in the fall.  The PTA has agreed to partner with the staff to create an assembly to provide prizes, certificates and possibly medals for those students who log the most hours.  Parents, this program is FREE and is guaranteed to help your child maintain the skills acquired throughout the school year.  Please continue to have  your child/children log into the programs regularly!

Enjoy the rest of the summer. I am looking forward to seeing everyone on September 3rd!

Mr. Polakowski
