Fall Picture Day

September 23, 2014

Message from the Principal

Tim Cariss - Principal

We had great turn outs at both of our Back to School Nights!  It was very nice to see familiar faces and some new faces as well!  Thank you for taking the time to come out and get acquainted and re-acquainted with or program, safety rules and to meet new teachers and staff.  



The Rosedale JOG-A-THON will be Friday, Sep. 26 from 9:30- 10:15 AM, warm-up at 9:15 AM.  Pledge sheets and money are due by the day of the event.  Please turn in pledge money to your child’s teacher in a sealed envelope with the child’s name, teacher’s name and room number printed on them.  Parent volunteers will be needed before, during and after the event.  If you can help, please contact Lori Pforsich at [email protected].  Teachers will also need several parent volunteers per class during the event to mark lap cards.  If you can help, please let your child’s teacher know.

September is Attendance Awareness Month

Poor attendance is a proven early warning indicator of academic trouble and dropping out of school.  Attendance improves when schools, families and communities work together to create a positive culture of daily attendance for all students.  Help your child succeed in school.  Build the habit of good attendance early.  School success goes hand in hand with good attendance. 

Did you know?

  • Starting in Kindergarten, too many absences can cause children to fall behind in school.
  • Missing 10 percent (or about 18 days) can make it harder to learn to read.
  • Students can still fall behind if they miss just a day or two days every few weeks.
  • Being late to school may lead to poor attendance.
  • Absences can affect the whole classroom if the teacher has to slow down learning to help children catch up.

Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school – and themselves.  Start building this habit in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important.  Good attendance will help children do well in high school, college, and at work.
