Principal's Message

Dear Rosenauer Parents,


With October coming to an end, we now look to Halloween and parent conferences which are right around the corner.  On October 31st, 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 31 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 9th Annual Gift Auction is the biggest fundraiser our PTA does all year long.  We look to 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 fill out the attached form and send it in.  You are also welcome to contact Andrea Frangella at 646-206-4945 or email if you have questions.  Full  payment not due until December 31st.   Hope to see you there.

Parent conferences are scheduled for November 14th through November 17th.  We will have ½ days for those 4 days.  School will dismiss at 1:55 Monday through Thursday, so please plan accordingly.  Friday will be a full day that week and school will let out at 3:30.  As was the case last year, parents need to go into Genesis to sign up for parent conferences.  Directions are below if you require assistance.


Genesis is now open and parents can go in and sign up for parent conferences.  I have provided information for how to access the conference sheets.  IF you are unable to access the sign-up sheet, it is probably a result of not completing the annual notices and permission slips required at the beginning of each school year.  If you are an “opt-out” family, these forms have already been sent home and need to be returned completed.  Directions are listed below:



Parents can utilize the parent Portal to schedule a conference with your child’s teacher at a time that works for you.

To do this, log into your Portal account and select the CONFERENCES tab at the top. Then, select the “Request a Conference’’ link.

Change the date on the window to the Week of November 14 and see what time slots are available for your child’s teacher. Once completed, you will see your reserved conference on the main page of the CONFERENCES tab. You can use this link to cancel, or change, the conference if you need to.

Please schedule your conference(s) by Friday, October 28!

For detailed instructions and screenshots to help you, see our

Conference Scheduling Instructions.


Many parents have not gone into the Portal to fill out their child/children’s Emergency Card/Publicity and Internet Permission forms, as well as the annual notices and other important documents.  Please make sure to log into Genesis.


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.


Our Reach For Success/SOAR programs began on Monday, October 17th.  The program will run Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and will start at 8:25.  Students enrolled in the program should report to school at 8:20.  Please do not send your child/children before that time.
