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 a wonderful concert.  “Songs of the Decades” was a hit and I loved seeing our 5th graders on the big stage with the bright lights and ear to ear smiles.


A favorite tradition!  Our Reading Arts Day was also a huge success.  We welcomed over 20 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 10th Annual Gift Auction (APRIL 13th)

I would like to personally invite you to Rosenauer’s 10th Annual Gift Auction on April 13th, 2018 at the 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 and assemblies, that create lasting memories, each year. One student, per 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. On the 100th day of school, every child will receive ice cream at lunch then, on the last day of school, snow cones. We also hold evening yearly events at school, including Candy Bingo, Trunk or Treat and a Spring Family Night. All these events listed are fully funded by our 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 to reserve your seat.  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.


Yearbook: The cost is $30.00 per yearbook. You have the option this year of ordering your books online and placing your ads online!  Please see the flyer on the e-backpack or the PTA page for further details. You can also use the link below.  Every year, we have students who did not order a yearbook, and when they come in, and realize they really want one, we can’t always accommodate them because there are none left. So please be sure to get your yearbooks ordered now while you can! It is a wonderful keepsake of the school year.

Never too late!!! 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.

2nd Round of Interventions

Our Intervention programs will restart on Monday, February 12th.  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.
