March Principal Letter

Dear Rosenauer Parents,

The month of February is behind us and we are looking forward to March...and spring.  In February we had our Candy Bingo Night which was a great success. I enjoyed seeing all the students having fun and getting excited about the large prizes.  Thank you to the PTA for putting this fun event together.

A very special thank you to our Superintendent Dr. Genco, who spoke at our PTA meeting which was held on February 20th.  I am attaching a powerpoint link that outlines the key points covered by Dr. Genco and impact on our Jackson School District.  The Superintendent and Board of Education is asking all Jackson parents to write our senators and committee representatives urging them to reverse their stance on reduction in state aid for Jackson.  I have included form letters to this document. Please take a moment to print, sign and have your child return one or both of the letters by Monday so that they can be included in a mailing that will go to the state house next week.  Thank you so much for your support of the Jackson School District.


Our 3rd and 4th graders were supposed to participate in “Jump Rope for Heart” in the month of February but Mother Nature had other plans.  The event has been rescheduled for March 6th.

On March 7th we will celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday.  It is an opportunity for students to come to the building and participate in book readings by teachers and other special guests.   We will also have our Spring Book Fair, so feel free to stop in to buy a book!

SPRING PICTURES will be taken on the stage on March 12th.  Please mark your calendars!

Our 11th Annual Gift Auction will be held on March 22nd.  I cannot wait to see parents and staff coming together to support the students!  Thank you for your continued support.

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, this is updated as needed, in a timely manner.

Breakfast is Served

Parents, please remember that we offer breakfast to all students, everyday.  Every 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.
