Message from the Principal

Tim Cariss - Principal

I hope everyone had an enjoyable and restful Spring Break. Thank you to all of the Rosedale families who took part in our intersession attendance make-up days!  During the break Rosedale recovered 314 student absences.  This clears absences for students and generates funding for our school.  A special thanks to Mr. Carriere & Ms. Payne who coordinated the program.   

As you have probably noticed, we have had some work done at Rosedale to improve safety and ADA accessibility on our campus.  These projects are funded by Measure E.  We will have more work done on campus over the next few years, but safety concerns were taken care of first. 

Front Parking Lot:  We have created two lanes for parents to drive through when dropping off students in the morning.  A stop sign has been placed at the crosswalk in front of the cafeteria, please drop students off while stopped there.  The lane closest to the sidewalk is now marked with yellow hash marks.  This lane is for buses and delivery trucks only.  We also have two areas that have been designated as no parking.  These are indicated by red curbs.  The purpose of these “No Parking” areas is to help with traffic flow.

Side Parking Lot:  We have new traffic lanes painted to assist with traffic flow.

Fencing:  We have new fencing and gates at all entry points onto campus.  This project is not yet completed, so gates will remain unlocked pending completion.  Locks still need to be installed that allow for exit through the gates without the use of a key.  The purpose of the fences and gates is to control the flow of foot traffic onto our campus.  Once the project is complete, the gates will be locked during the school day and all entry onto campus will be through the office.  Gates will be unlocked before and after school during drop-off and pick-up.


Rosedale's 2014-15 Yearbooks are on sale now.  There are two ways to purchase yearbooks this year.  You can visit memorybook.com/parentpay enter the code 76503.  Yearbooks are $21.50 online (which includes the yearbook companies processing fee), or $20 if you purchase them at school. There is an ONLINE only option of having your child's name printed on the cover which costs $21.50 Yearbooks are on sale until March 31, 2015 orders will not be accepted online after that date.  School orders will be filled while supplies last and there are no guarantees you will receive one if you order after the March 31 deadline.  Yearbooks will be distributed the last week of school. 

CAASPP - Standardize Testing

Rosedale students in grades 3-6 will take our new standardized state assessments, the CAASPP assessments, at designated times within a testing window that will run from April 13 – May 22.  Our students and staff have been hard at work all year addressing the Common Core State Standards that will be tested on these assessments.  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.

6th Grade to Junior High Transition

6th Grade Visitation Day - Thursday, April 9th, 2015
This will be preceded by the 6th Grade Parent Night to be held Wednesday, April 8th @ 6:30

Chico Junior   2nd Tour: 10:55am -1:30pm

Rosedale and Emma Wilson-Will meet in the GYM (Cougar Cave) for lunch.

Bidwell Junior      9:00-11:45 All schools participating will meet in the gym at 9:00 am.

Our goal is to provide your student information about junior high and to begin developing a strong partnership with your student. We want to support your student so he/she will be successful during junior high.  If you have any additional questions, please contact your designated school.

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 the office and we 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.
