Dear Rosenauer Parents,
This past week we welcomed “The Cat in the Hat”. Our entire school benefitted from the assemblies and the students really seemed to enjoy the presentation. Thank you to the PTA for making the necessary arrangements and paying for the program.
Just a reminder to parents that all students have access to both the Raz-Kid and the IXL Math online sites. Both these programs are accessible to students at home and are paid for by the PTA. Please utilize these resources to help reinforce your child's educational skills in the areas of literacy and math.
“Give a Kid a Smile Day” is Friday, Feb. 5. Check out our E-BackPack for details. It’s a great opportunity to have your child’s teeth checked for free!
A special thank you to all the families that donated to the “Souper Bowl” food drive that took place over the past few weeks. The Broncos were voted to win the Super Bowl over the weekend. The real winner is the Jackson Food Pantry. They will receive 8 boxes of canned goods thanks to your generosity.
Lastly, thank you to Mr. Christopher Carroll. Chris had won the Principal for a Day raffle earlier this year and Friday was his day to serve as acting principal. Mr. Carroll assisted me in announcements, taking room temperatures, delivering birthday cards to students from the PTA, and will help supervise dismissal. It will be challenging based on the weather but his assistance will be very helpful.
As always have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the Super Bowl!
Mr. Polakowski & Chris Carroll

FYI for Parents: District Evaluating New Approach to Active Shooter Drills
The district wants to let our parents know we are evaluating a new approach to how we could handle an active shooter situation. This approach or plan, which has gained national attention, is referred to as A.L.I.C.E., and includes additional strategies and options we may decide to employ in our district. Please take a moment to read a letter from the superintendent about this approach and about a pilot training program we are conducting. Please keep in mind, however, there are currently NO changes taking place in our district procedures. The letter is also available on the district website.
