Dear Rosenauer Families,
On behalf of the staff, I would like to congratulate the 5th grade class one more time and wish them all success at McAuliffe. I will miss them, but they are ready to leave the nest and I truly believe they will shine in middle school. To all returning students, I wish you a happy, healthy and safe summer. Make sure to log onto the Raz-Kids, IXL Math and Destiny programs at least 2 hours a week. Read often and enjoy time with family and friends. I look forward to seeing everyone in the fall. Lastly, a special thanks to the parents and PTA for all their support this past year. Rosenauer is a special place not because of the building, the curriculum or the town. It is special because of the teachers who fill it, the students who attend it and the parents who support it. We are a tight knit community who instill strong values into our children. Thank you for all your support and have a wonderful summer.
In an effort to avoid the” Summer Slide,” I am proud to offer parents and students Rosenauer’s Summer Academic Program again. This 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 students are encouraged to participate in the program. I strongly recommend that students put aside at least 2 hours a week to participate in Raz-Kids and the IXL math program. They should also choose and read at least two on-line books through the Destiny program over the summer. All three programs are designed to track student participation. Students with high participation in the program will be rewarded in the fall. Parents, this program is FREE and is guaranteed to help your child maintain the skills acquired throughout the school year. Please get your children into the routine of logging on daily!
Again, have a great summer everyone! Fifth graders, good luck in middle school and I look forward to seeing returning students on September 2nd!
