February Principal's Letter

Dear Rosenauer Parents,


January was a very busy month here at Rosenauer.  Our second and fourth graders took the In-View test, our 5th graders performed magnificently at their winter concert and we welcomed over 20 presenters for our annual Reading Arts Day.  


I would like to thank Mr. Trout, the PTA and 5th grade parents who helped to develop and put on such a wonderful concert.  Seeing our 5th graders on the big stage with the bright lights was great and I loved to see their hard work pay off.

Our Reading Arts Day was also a huge success.  We welcomed presenters from all areas of business and industry.  This event exposes our kids to a variety of careers in and around our community.  The staff and I are very appreciative of the hard work and dedication of the PTA for organizing and funding this special event.


Our 9th Annual Gift Auction (ONLY A MONTH AWAY!)

I would like to personally invite you to Rosenauer’s 9th Annual Gift Auction on February 24th, 2017 at Woodlake Country Club. This is our biggest fundraising event of the year which allows our children to partake in so many amazing events throughout their years here at Rosenauer. In the years to come, your child will be a part of class trips each year and assemblies, as well. One student each month is awarded “Student of the Month” by his or her teacher and the PTA presents each child with a medal and a $10 Scholastic Certificate for the next book fair. Each child on the 100th day of school will receive ice cream at lunch and snow cones on the last day of school. We also hold evening events at school, including Candy Bingo, Trunk or Treat and a spring family night each year. All these events listed are fully funded by the PTA and could not take place without fundraising annually.


Because the Annual Gift Auction is our largest fundraiser, your support is greatly appreciated.  We still have a few tables left.  Please fill out the attached form and send it in.  You are also welcome to contact Andrea Frangella at 646-206-4945 or email if you have questions.  Full payment is due ASAP.   Hope to see you there.  For more information, visit PTA Backpack.


If you are not a member of the PTA and would like to join, please send $5 in an envelope with your name, child’s name, phone number and email address. Once a member, you will have access to the PTA Facebook page, "Sylvia Rosenauer Elementary School PTA", which provides you with all events going on at the school and is updated when needed as fast as we can.


Breakfast is Served

Parents, please remember that we offer breakfast to all students everyday.  Any student has the opportunity to purchase a breakfast between 9:10, when the school opens to students, until 9:25, when students report to homeroom.

Reach for Success/SOAR

Our Reach For Success/SOAR programs will restart on Monday, February 13th and will end on Wednesday, March 29th.   Please mark your calendars and remember that students enrolled in the program should report to school at 8:20.  Please do not send your child/children before that time.
