Message from the Principal

Tim Cariss - Principal

Rosedale students in grades 3-6 started taking our new standardized state assessments (CAASPP) today. The testing window will run from April 13 – May 22.  Your student will not be testing every day.  An individual testing schedule for your student’s class was sent home last Friday.  I am excited that our students have this opportunity to show off after all of their hard work!  Test results will also allow us to identify strengths, as well as areas of improvement in our program.  Please remember to:

  1. Have students here every day and on time during the testing window.
  2. If your student eats breakfast at home, please make sure it’s a healthy breakfast.
  3. Please make sure you child is getting plenty of rest.
  4. Please do not schedule appointments for your child during testing sessions.
  5. Encourage your child to do his/her best and to take their time. 

Thanks You Mom's

Mom’s presented Rosedale with a big check in the amount of $2050.00 last week!  Rosedale participated in this fundraiser during the month of March.  Thank you to all our parents, family, friends and supporters who visited Mom’s and helped our school!  Thank you Mom’s for being such a great Rosedale partner!

Klean Kanteen Fundraiser

6th graders are hosting a Klean Kanteen sale to raise funds for environmental camp. We will profit 50% from each Klean Kanteen sold! Your support is greatly appreciated. Contact any sixth grade student to make a purchase, we will also be selling Klean Kanteens on Fridays after school by the side parking lot, and in the mornings in rooms 6, 9, or 11.

27 oz bottles= $20

18 oz bottles= $18

Students to 7th Grade in August

All students starting 7th grade in August will need proof of a whooping cough booster shot before starting school.

We strongly recommend getting your child vaccinated. Getting the Tdap shot now will not only help protect your child against the ongoing threat of whooping cough but will also meet the school entry requirement for junior high. 

If your child has already obtained the Tdap booster shot, please send verification to the school as soon as possible.

Rosedale Book Fair 4/27 - 5/1

We could really use your help, and you don't even have to operate cash registers if you don't want to. We need extra adults to watch the entry, supervise, and help keep shelves tidy. Shifts are available before and after school as well as 30 minute slots during Open House, so you still have time to visit your kids' classes. Just a little bit of your time will be a HUGE help. Please join us! View available slots and sign up athttp://www.signupgenius.com/go/904094caaaa29a75-rosedale or [email protected]

Teacher Placement Requests

Teacher placement requests for next year will be taken from Monday, April 13 through Friday, May 15.  To make a request, please contact Tami in the office and she will provide you with an online link to indicate your preferences.  All requests are taken into consideration when classes are formed.  However, please keep in mind that there are situations due to classroom balance concerns (numbers of boys/girls, English Learners/English Only students, etc.) where requests are not able to be fulfilled.  Due to the nature of our program, it is especially important for us to have balanced classrooms.

Community Event Bulletin Board

Rosedale has a community event bulletin board located in the main hallway.  Please make sure to visit our community event board to see upcoming events you and your family might be interested in.  If you see anything of interest and need a copy, please come to the office.
