Message from the Principal

Jo Ann Bettencourt - Principal

Happy New Year and welcome back to school. I hope everyone had a wonderful break and is well rested and ready for the second half of the school year. It’s hard to believe we are already at the half way point. This school year is flying by. I would like to encourage parents continue look for volunteer opportunities in the school via your child’s teacher, the PTA, helping the librarian, or just popping in and having lunch with your child. There is research that shows that the more involved parents are in their child’s education, the more success the child will have in school.

Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run is SO much FUN! Girls on the Run is an after school program where girls can runs, skip, laugh, talk and be themselves. It’s a very positive program that encourages physical exercise. Students work up to running a 5K run in Bidwell park in the spring. If your child is interested in participating, please sign up for the lottery online at gotrnorthstate.org before January 20.

After School Tuturing

Rosedale has after school tutoring available on Mondays and Thursdays in the computer lab from 2:30-3:45. Students will do an hour of iReady. One day will focus on math and one day will focus on English Language Arts. If you are interested in having  your child participate in tutoring, please see Mrs. Bettencourt. We have limited spots and may need to rotate students in and out of tutoring depending on demand and student need. 

Shady Creek Cabin Counselors Needed

Do you know of a high school junior, senior, or young college student who is interested in being a cabin leader at Shady Creek for our 5th grade environmental camp Feb. 21-24? We are currently recruiting both male and female cabin leaders. Cabin leaders should enjoy being around children, be a positive role model for students as this is a leadership role.  Applications are available in the Rosedale office.
