Principal Message - June

Hello Rosenauers students and parents,


First, I would like to congratulate my outgoing 5th graders on an outstanding year.  It was a long and at times difficult year but we did it together and I truly believe these experiences will only make each of you stronger and more resilient.  I will miss each and every one of you but you will love middle school.  Good luck.


To the rest of my Roadrunners who will be returning in the fall, you have grown more independent through the hard work you completed this year.  With less instruction time due to shortened days this year, this summer is very important!  I strongly recommend parents with children in grades K-3 that you put your children on IXL and Raz-Kids for at least 30 minutes per week in each program.  This will ensure that reading and math skills remain sharp throughout the summer.  Teachers will send home the necessary information that will allow students to continue to access these programs over the summer. IF you were invited to a summer program your attendance is vital.  These programs have been modified to help students close gaps and prepare our students for the fall.  Lastly, I encourage all students to read this summer.  Put time aside each day to read.  It does not matter what the book is about, find something you enjoy and start there.  Just read!


All students returning to school in September will keep their district issued chromebook for the summer.  This will be the same chromebook your child will use next school year.  Any students who will not be returning to Jackson in September should return their chromebook and charger to the school by Friday, June 18th. 


Information and additional questions about the devices can be found on our district technology webpage:


On behalf of my staff I want to thank all the parents for your support this past year.  IT TRULY TAKES A VILLAGE to raise a child during the pandemic.


Have a safe summer and I am looking forward to getting back to “business as usual”  in the fall.


Mr. Polakowski
