October Principal Letter

Dear Rosenauer Parents,


We have had a wonderful opening and both our staff and students have settled in nicely.  Thank you to all the parents who came to our Pre-K and Grades 3-5 Back To School Night on the 26th.   It was great to see so many familiar faces and I loved meeting our new families. I am looking forward to meeting with my kindergarten, first and second grade parents on October 2nd at 7 PM.  October brings several exciting events, so please check the school and district calendars and plan accordingly.


At the end of the month, we will have our Halloween parade.  Students in kindergarten through grade 3 will march in the parade.  Students in 4th and 5th grade will line up in the back of the building to watch.  Our Pre-K programs will have their own parades. AM Pre-K will march on the basketball court at 12:00 and our PM Pre-K classes will march at 3:30 in the same location. I have posted a letter in our Backpack to parents regarding our Halloween parade on October 31st and clarification on what the expectations are for costumes.  Please read the document before purchasing and sending your child/children to school with a costume. Our PTA will also be hosting “Trunk or Treat” on Friday, October 26th.  The event will begin at 6:30! Check the Backpack for information.


Student safety continues to be our primary concern and we take this responsibility seriously.  Thank you for respecting the cones, as well as our safeties and staff. Just a reminder that if you are planning on picking up or dropping off your child for school, you will not be permitted in the front parking lot from 9:00-9:30 and at the end of the day from 3:00-3:30. This is to ensure the safety of students, so please respect the staff who will be enforcing the rule. As was the case in the past, we will not allow parents to sign out children after 3:10.  This will help us to avoid any confusion at the end of the day. If possible, please call ahead if you plan on signing students out. This will help us to expedite the process. I will continue to enforce the no parking rule in the teacher parking lot.  This is the paved lot located between the 1st grade entrance and the Music/Art trailer.  Please respect the cones that will be in place at that location. As always, be mindful of the multiple crosswalks located around the campus.  We have a large walker population who utilize those crossings before and after school. Lastly, there continues to be NO PARKING on the Rosenauer side of New Hampshire Road.  Thank you for your cooperation.

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