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."
