Dear Rose Creek Families,
It’s hard to believe we’re already at the close of the school year. I have never met a nicer, kinder group of students in one school. That is a reflection of your parenting, values, and desire to contribute the greatest gift we can give our future – children raised to contribute in meaningful ways to the world and each other.
I take my hats off to the staff at Rose Creek Elementary. Many, many people go out of their way to make school a good experience for your children. Countless hours are spent in preparation, reviewing student work, tutoring, tracking, planning curriculum, and now preparing for a new school year. There are numerous conversations about specific students, their needs, and how we can best help them. This includes intervention specialists who work with students needing a little extra time and support to master concepts. There are also conversations about the best way to accelerate learning for those who need the challenge. This really is exciting work.
We also have School Community Council, PTA, and volunteers who work to improve the learning opportunities for students. Many parents are in the school on a daily or weekly basis helping in classrooms or working on programs that enrich student’s school experience. Parents and grandparents also work hard at home to support the learning goals of the classroom.
Thank you for your hard work. Thank you for making my first year at Rose Creek a positive and rewarding experience. I am looking forward to working with you in 2014-15.
