Message from the Principal

Jo Ann Bettencourt - Principal

Our first student store was a big hit for the students!  The students were very happy to spend their “Moneda Mapaches”. Thank you to Lindsey Viscarra for taking on the collection of items, organization and running the student store.  She’s already looking ahead to our next student store scheduled for Friday, March 3rd!  We are still accepting donated items for the store.  Mrs. Viscarra posted a wish list of items on the Rosedale Parents FB page.  If you are able to donate items, please drop them off at the front office. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support of the store. We will also be looking for parents who might be able to help run the store in shifts on Friday. Please let Lindsey Viscarra know if you can help in any way!

Stand up to Bullying Day - Be the One!!!

On Wednesday, February 22, all Rosedale Two Way Spanish Immersion students are encouraged to wear pink as we join other Chico Unified Elementary Schools and stand up to bullying! The tradition of wearing pink to stand up to bullying was first established in Nova Scotia.  A new male student at a high school was bullied for wearing a pink shirt on his first day of school.  Two older students heard about this and purchased pink shirts, which they handed out to classmates as a sign of their support for the new student.  With the theme of Be the One, our students will be asked to pledge to be the one willing to stand up when they see bullying.  We know that when one stands up, others will follow.  Standing up can mean saying something to those involved in the moment, inviting the targeted student to join in inclusive activities, or reporting to adults at home and school.  More importantly, “being the one” means engaging in positive behaviors that build the kind of school and community we want to create for one another.  We invite staff and family members to also “be the ones”, by joining in wearing pink as a sign of standing up to bullying. We will spread kindness!

Chocolate Sales

Our chocolate sales kick off assembly was last Friday, February 3.  The kids were very excited to start selling chocolates!  Permission slips were sent home.  Please make sure to always exercise safety and always accompany your student when selling chocolates around their neighborhood.
