Welcome to Rose Park Elementary..a Community Learning Center!
A Message from our Principal
Welcome to Rose Park Elementary, home of the Raptors! As a student at Rose Park, it is important that you come to school every day. It is also important that you do your best work, are an outstanding citizen and friend, and that you ask for help when you need it. I recently read something that I want to share with you because it captures what I believe is important in education: "When you enter this school you are explorers, scientists, mathematicians, readers, and artists. You are important. You are loved. You are respected. You are appreciated. You are a friend. You are the reason we are here."

Rose Park students present artwork for new Pioneer Precinct Community Art Gallery Exhibit
Salt Lake City, UT – The Salt Lake City Arts Council announces the opening of Rose Park Student Views, a new exhibit at the Salt Lake city Police Department’s Pioneer Precinct building located in Poplar Grove (1040 West 700 South).
This exhibit features digital photographs taken by fifth grade students at Rose Park Elementary. Students worked with photographer John Schaefer on a two part project.
The first part of this project included instruction in photography basics including framing, process, and composition. John had each student take two photographs with no people in them. Once complete, the class reviewed all of the images together. As John projected the photos, he said what he liked most about each picture. This was a verypositive experience for the students as a professional photographer was publicly praising their work. Next, cameras were loaned out to half of the class to take home with them and take pictures. The following day the other half of the class did the same thing. John came back and again the class viewed all of the images. Students then voted on their favorites to have printed and displayed in this exhibition.
The second part of the program, the MAPS Travel Wise aspect,will start at the end of April. As part of Children's Media Workshop’s programming, John, will work with the same students to explore personal artistic development and communication using visual, spatial, and media literacy. With support fromUDOT's Travel Wise program and withEsri mapping software there is a special emphasis on critical thinking to develop an aesthetic around student travel, exploring a sense of artistic and community place as well as personalresponsibility for travel issues, taking into consideration safety, empowerment, and the environment.
The exhibit will be on display through June, 2013 and is free and open to the public during regular precinct business hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The Community Art Gallery at the Pioneer Precinct building is managed by the Salt Lake City Arts Council. Thank you to the following for their cooperation in this community art project: Salt Lake City Arts Council, Salt Lake Art Design Board, John Schaefer, Peter Martin, Rose Park Elementary School, Salt Lake City Police Department, and the artists in the fifth grade class at Rose Park Elementary.
