Message from the Principal

Jo Ann Bettencourt - Principal

Our Jog a thon was a huge success. We brought in over $14,500; thanks to all the students, PTA, staff, and community members who helped make this event a success. Last week, I was blasted by over 400 water balloons. It was a great time for the students, and I was happy to be their target! Our top boy and girl runners were:

Grades K-2      Olivia G. 22 Laps                   Alejandro G., Ely M., Josiah M. 20 Laps

Grades 3-5       Ali L. 12 Laps                         Jacob S. 13 Laps

The end of the first trimester is quickly approaching. If you have not yet made an appointment to meet with your child’s teacher to go over progress, now is the time to do that. Thursday, November 10th is our parent teacher conference day. There will be no school that day. This day has been set aside as a collaborative day for parents and teachers to meet and go over the report card, assessments, and any other information regarding your child’s progress and behavior.

Dia de los Muertos Festival and Carnival

On Friday October 28, we will be holding our annual “Dia de los Muertos” Festival and Carnival. We invite you to bring your family and friends to enjoy an evening of fun, food, games, cultural displays, and more! The festivities will go from 5:00-7:00. Students are encouraged to wear costumes to this family event. If you would like to help, talk to your child’s teacher as most classes will be hosting a game or booth. We will also have opportunities to help with set up and clean up.  More info and a flyer coming soon!


Rosedale students will be allowed to wear costumes to school on Halloween day. We would like to request no masks, gory face paint, no weapons as props, and that they be dressed code appropriate. For younger students please be sure the costume is easily accessible for restroom purposes. We will have a costume parade in the morning at 8:45 a.m. out on the track (weather permitting).

Message from the Health Office

Parents of 3rd graders, every year the 3rd grade class fills out the yellow HEALTH HISTORY form so that the school can up-date any health concerns. A couple of weeks ago your student brought home a yellow HEALTH HISTORY form.  Please make sure you have filled out the form and that your student has returned it to either the teacher or office.

Paseo de Postres/Cake Walk

The Kinder team will be hosting a cake decorating contest and cake walk on the day of our Día de los Muertos Festival on Friday, October 28th.  The theme will be Día de los Muertos.  The 3 best designs on cakes or cupcakes with the theme will win Rosedale swag/gear. More details to come!


Rosedale pushes  out several announcements via the Remind application.  We will no longer be using the auto dialer for every day reminders.

Afternoon Pick-Up

The front circle drive through is for buses, district vans or day care vehicles ONLY and it is closed to through traffic.  When the “Do Not Enter” or “Buses Only” signs and cones are present, whether they are upright or knocked down, do not enter the front circle.  Please respect the signs and our children.  Do not follow a car into the parking area that is not respecting our rules.  Also, the exit lanes at the end of our circular drive are for EXITING vehicles only and should not be used to back into or enter the drive. 

During afternoon pick up on the side parking lot (Oak Park side), please pull up to the curb or stop in your lane and stay in your car.  An attendant will cross your child in the crosswalk to your car.   Please never leave your car unattended as this slows down or blocks the flow of traffic.   If you prefer to pick up your student from their classroom, park in “Far Parking Lot”.  The safety of the children is our main concern.  It is because of this that we appreciate your help in keeping all our children safe.
