Principal's December Letter

Dear Rosenauer Parents,


It is difficult to believe that we are about to start the month of December!  

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Break.  It was also nice to see so many parents participate in our Conference week.  Being involved in your child’s/children’s education is critical to their future success so thank you for taking the time to sit with their teachers.  

I am very excited to report that the community approved the appointment of Elementary School Security Guards to all of our buildings.  We are expecting these guards to start when we return to school in January.  Thank you to all who voted YES. This additional layer will enhance our already strong security procedures and will only help with our before and after school drop off and pick up traffic procedures.

In the month of November, we had our World Series Food Drive.  We collected canned goods and nonperishable items for the Jackson Food Pantry.  This was organized by Mrs. Modula. Thank you to all who sent in food for our needy Jackson families.

On Tuesday, November 20th, I honored students in grades K through 5 for the Student of the Month.  This event highlights students who are working very hard and getting high marks in school. It is great to see the students receive their certificates and medals.  Congrats to all the recipients!

On Wednesday the 21st I had the privilege of having lunch with a group of wonderful students.  The students invited for lunch have shown good character throughout the month. My monthly Lunch with the Principal is one of the highlights of my day and I enjoyed talking to students about their favorite books, after-school activities, and plans for the upcoming holidays.

Our 11th Annual Gift Auction

This is the biggest fundraiser our PTA does all year long.  We look at this event to fund many of the activities the students are a part of during school and even after hours.  Your support is greatly appreciated. We still have a few tables left. Please check our backpack or our PTA Facebook page if interested.  You are also welcome to contact Andrea Frangella at 646-206-4945 or email if you have questions.  Full payment is not due until January 31st.   Hope to see you there.
