Greetings to our Amazing Rose Families,

Welcome back and happy New Year to all!  I am so excited for our students and staff to be back at Rose for the second half of our school year!   Please click HERE for more!

5Essentials Survey
See Principal Straight's Page for more information. January 30th is the last opportunity you have to give feedback about Barbara B. Rose School through the 5Essentials Survey. Please click HERE to access the survey.  Make sure to put "Lake" as the county where your school is located.
Music Volunteer needed
Mrs. Blake needs a volunteer who can help with equipment setup for the upcoming 4th Grade Concert on January 25th and for the 2nd Grade Concert on February 28th.

It may require equipment setup during the week of the performance, as well as setup and break down the night of the performance. A music background is helpful, but not required. If you are interested, please contact Cori Cornelissen at cori.cornelissen@gmail.com.

All teachers, staff and Rose parents are welcome to join us for dice, food, fun and a hot chocolate bar. No experience necessary to play. Please RSVP by January 19th. $10/adult.

Auction Items needed
Rose Parent Social Night & Fundraiser is coming up on February 11, 2017 to “Celebrate Rose!”  Not only is it a night when parents can socialize and mingle without the kids, it is also an opportunity to raise money for Rose School. This year, proceeds will be going towards an Outdoor Learning Center in the Rose Garden Courtyard located in the center of the school. With the winter we've been having, our kids will surely welcome any opportunities to learn outdoors!  
With that in mind, we are asking if any Rose families are able to donate towards the auction portion of the Parent Social.  Any tickets to sporting events, timeshares, access to a weekend home/condo, tickets to events, products, services, or gift cards would be much appreciated.  Remember, it's for our kids and to continue the outstanding legacy at Barbara B. Rose Elementary School.

If you are willing to donate and share, please email RoseParentSocial@gmail.com.
