Message from the Principal

Tim Cariss - Principal

Our Parent/Teacher conference day is scheduled for Friday, October 31st.  Please note that this is a non-school day for kids.  Some conferences have been scheduled on additional days.  Our goal as always is to have 100% participation by parents for conferences.  This year, it is especially important to attend your Parent/Teacher conference to hear from your child’s teacher regarding instructional changes brought about by the Common Core State Standards.

Autumn is officially here and with it comes cooler weather.  Please make sure to label sweaters and jackets so that kids can easily find misplaced or lost items. 

Finally, on Saturday, October 25th @ 8:00 a.m.  We will be having a painting day to repaint our  Holistic Playground.  We will also be retouching murals on various outside walls.  Show up ready  to pain! See you there!

Registration for Rosedale siblings for the 2015/2016 school year will be Tuesday, December 9th in the Rosedale library from 8:30 - 2:30.  If you are not currently part of our Rosedale family you will need to register at your neighborhood school.

Registration for the 2015-2016 school year will be held on the following dates at the locations indicated below. To enter Kindergarten in the fall, a child must be five years old on or before September 1, 2015. To enter Transitional Kindergarten, a child must turn five between September 2, 2015 and December 2, 2015.  Parents should register their children at the school serving their residence area.  Proof of residence is required.  An online school locator program is available at http://www.chicousd.org/__dept/schools/School_Locator.html.  Parents can input their address and find out their resident school.

Parents are strongly encouraged to register on the designated dates.  Priority will be assigned based on the date of registration.  The time of day that registration occurs will not constitute a priority.  All children will be enrolled, but some may have to attend a school other than the one serving their residence area.


The following are required to register a child:  (1) proof of date of birth (birth certificate, baptismal certificate, or other legal proof), (2) two forms verifying proof of residency, and (3) written immunization record from a physician, nurse, or health department.  Children must be immunized for MMR - measles, mumps and rubella (German measles), polio, DTaP - diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough), Hepatitis B, and Varicella (chicken pox) prior to school entry.  The law allows parents/guardians to choose an exemption from immunization requirements based on their personal beliefs or medical conditions.  All requests for exemption require a physician’s signature.
