Dear Roose Families:

Welcome back to Roose for the 2014-2015 school year.  We have worked very hard all summer preparing for an exciting school year!  The teachers worked on continuing to create engaging lesson plans and the custodial staff got the building ready to go!  We have made the transition to Common Core State Standards.  This means we will continue to challenge your child in all subject areas.  We are committed to helping your child grow and learn.

Along with the Roose staff, I believe that parental involvement is key in the success of a child.  We encourage you to volunteer in your child's classroom, attend PTC meetings, attend Roose events, or to even just call or email with any suggestions or questions.

Below are a few important dates to remember:

  • Class lists will be posted on the front windows of Roose after 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 28th.
  • Kindergarten Curriculum Night is August 26th at 6:30 p.m.  Please come to meet your child's Kindergarten teacher and learn about the curriculum and classroom expectations.  This is a parent-only event.
  • District Picnic, held at the Administration Building, is August 27th at 5:00 p.m.
  • FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL is Tuesday, September 2nd with a dismissal time of 11:30 a.m.
  • Grades 1-5 Curriculum Night is September 4th.  Grades 1-2 will meet from 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. and Grades 3-5 will meet from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.
  • Fall Parent/Teacher Conferences are November 11th and 13th.  Please sign up for Fall Conferences at your child's Curriculum Night.

Responsibility is September's character education trait.  In thinking about what it means to be responsible for our elementary students, I'm reminded of the quote from Steve Maraboli, "The right thing to do and the hard thing to do are usually the same."  We must continue to teach our children that being responsible isn't always easy, but it is certainly always right.  Please help your child at home to set good school habits at the beginning of the school year.

We want you and your child to feel comfortable.  So, if you or your child have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us.  We are proud to serve you and this community and would like to make this the best school year yet.

Sincerely,

Shannon McBrady
Principal
