Message from the Principal

Jo Ann Bettencourt - Principal

Our teacher/staff appreciation week was wonderful!  Thank you to all the parents who donated food items, gift cards or sent your child in with cards or flowers.  We also had parents help with set up and clean up. Thank you to our PTA for showering our teachers with love!  Special thanks to Mea Bickel and Ana Nava for helping coordinate this wonderful week.

We have something new and very exciting headed our way during the summer.  It is Rosedale Junior Scientist Summer Camp!  This camp will be June 29 to July 18 (Monday through Thursday) from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.  Students will explore topics such as:  Our Bodies, the Natural World, the Solar System, Physics, States of Matter, Engineering and much more!  Students in grades 2 through 5 are welcome to apply but unfortunately enrollment is limited to only 36 students. Be sure to get your applications turned in ASAP as it’s first come first serve and will be sent home ASAP.  There is no charge for this wonderful program It’s encouraged that students who attend wear sunscreen and hats and that they attend every day.  For more information please contact Kate Smith by phone or email:  891-3107 [email protected].  Please note there will be no camp on July 4 and 5th.

Thank you Mom's

We would like to thank everyone who ate at Mom’s restaurant during the month of April and those who purchased the 3+2+2 breakfast. Rosedale was the recipient of a check for $2144. As schools are already stretched, every dollar counts and makes a huge difference. Thanks again to Mom’s Restaurant. We appreciate your ongoing support of our schools. 

Multicultural Night

~Thank you to everyone who made this year’s Multicultural Night a success.  Special thanks go out to everyone who helped make decorations and the Kinslows and the Kraatzs for setting them up. Also, thanks to those who stayed to clean up.  Thank you to the volunteers, friends of Maestra Grimaldo, who helped with sales.  Thank you to Tacos Tonaya for the tacos and burritos.  Thank you to Roy Tadeo for running the music--we’re going to miss you next year! Thank you to the other fourth grade teachers Don Collins and Steve Salas who helped organize the event and the evening.  Also, a special thank you to our co-emcees of the evening:  Maria Beas, Dolores Alaniz, and Tino Nava.  You provide that special flair every year that adds so much to the evening!

Thank You Street Smart

Bike to School Week festivities ended with a visitor -  Street Smart.  Deanna Reed the Community Outreach Coordinator at Enloe Medical Center came with Street Smart.  Deanna said, "It was a great way for us to reinforce the "safety first" message, praising kids for wearing their helmets or reminding them to do so if they happened not to that morning."  They were greeted by the kids in the morning and had fun high-fiving and taking pictures as they arrived at school.  It was a great bicycle safety message they like to share and it is a great community outreach way in which to do so.
