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."

DISTRICT INFORMATION ABOUT CLOWN CONCERNS:
You may have seen the news recently regarding schools receiving threats from anonymous social media accounts associated with clowns. This has been happening in other states for some time and has just recently been happening in Utah as well. Thus far, this issue has consisted of hoaxes and reported but often unconfirmed sightings, with a few arrests here and there. It is not our intent to stir up people's fears regarding these incidents. We simply want to remind you of some simple ways we can all help keep your children safe.
Hoaxes or not, we want you to know we are tracking this issue and are taking it very seriously. When students feel unsafe, it can disrupt our efforts to provide a quality education. We believe that most of these accounts are hoaxes and are intended to be humorous. Regardless, principals have been made aware of this issue. If your child has been threatened in any way, please contact law enforcement.
We will aggressively investigate any person who is threatening or potentially harming our students and schools.
We are asking for your help to monitor your child's social media accounts. We also recognize that many students may be tempted to dress like clowns and go 'scare' people either out in the general public or on school property. In light of the current environment created by these hoaxes, such actions would not be seen would not be seen as humorous in any way. Please talk with your children and help them understand this.
Additionally, we encourage you to take the following measures to keep your child safe:
Students should not accept friend requests or allow people to follow their social media accounts who they do not know. Many of the messages surrounding this use come from anonymous accounts, yet the students accept the request allowing the perpetrator to harass them. Additionally, please block offending accounts. Take screenshots if necessary to preserve inappropriate messages for potential investigation. If your child sees threatening messages against other students or against schools in general, those messages should be forwarded to administrators or law enforcement.
When walking to and from school: Never approach strangers, even if they pretend to know you or know your child's name. Students should walk in groups. Students should be familiar with friends, families and neighbors along their walking route to be able to find a safe place to request assistance. Parents should provide supervision for younger students as appropriate.
There are many commen sense tips to help keep kids safe as they walk back and forth to school. We encourage you to have age appropriate discussions with your child regarding any of these items or any others that would help keep them safe.
School will be dismissed at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday Sept. 28 and Thursday Sept. 29 for SEP Conferencing. Teachers will notify parents of individual appointments. There will be no school for students on Friday September 30, (nonstudent day). There will be early dismissal the following Monday, October 3, at 12:30 p.m. for teacher training.

SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL:
HELLO PARENTS AND STUDENTS!
It is hard to believe that we are winding down the 2015-16 school year. The end of the school year always means summative testing. The testing window is open from April 4 to May 26. Here are some things you might want to know:
* Students in grades 3-6 will be taking the SGE summative assessments. All students in these grades take a math, and a language arts assessment. Students in grades 4-6 also take a science assessment.
* Students in grades K-2 take a district-created summative assessment in math and language arts.
* At Rose Park we generally begin testing the week of April 18. All students take the assessments on computers.
* We appreciate your support! Having students at school, on time, well rested and with a good breakfast will help us make sure they do their best and stay happy!
* If you have any questions related to summative testing, please feel free to contact your child's teacher or school leadership at 801-578-8554.
Thank you! And please contact us with any questions.

The students say: "It was a fun educational project and it helped us with social studies. We uncovered earth and found artifacts from different cultures. We also learned that it was hard to uncover the layers carefully without moving the artifacts." "Let us tell you about the Danger Cave. Some people lived there and left things behind. We learned about the things people used to survive. It is near Wendover, there is a lot of interesting stuff that the paleo and archaic Indians left behind. We drew pictures about our dig."
