A Word from Dr. Adamson


Dear Rose Drive Parents and Students,


       CAASPP state testing is complete and I am so very proud of our students; resolve and dedication as they completed each session over these past few weeks. Thank you, parents, for your role and commitment in ensuring students arrived at school on time, prepared, and refreshed for each testing day. The level of importance you place on this necessary routine plays a pivotal role in ensuring their success. Overall, the entire testing period has gone extremely smoothly and I can say with confidence that students have navigated these computerized tests with expertise and poise. Thanks to our terrific team of teachers and the combined efforts and teamwork of our testing coordinators, students were set for success each morning, with minimal disruptions to their regular instructional day. To our 3rd – 5th grade Roadrunners: How proud we are of you – Shining Stars Every One of You!  

       Student visits to my office are always the highlight of my week and so it is with much delight that I acknowledge these students for their achievements. For clipping up to the principal, as a result of exceptional behavior, I proudly displayed the clips of each of these kindergarten students; Ben Alonso, Nathan Shin, and Amaya Zapanta. Congratulations are also in store for fifth grader, Cara Hu, for her bravery and competitive spirit in participating in this year’s district Spelling Bee. Way to go Cara! Finally, the following Preppy K students, Emmanuel Alvarez-Orbegoso, Lucas Fross, Hailey Bruno, and Connor Lindbeck, visited the office last week, each armed with a well-constructed octopus and prepared to share details about this fascinating ocean animal, while showing off their counting skills to account for each of the eight tentacles. Impressive skills displayed by our youngest students. Impressive indeed!

      Time seems to be flying and the end of the year will be here before we know it. Looking ahead, we have plenty of events planned and it is my hope to see you all at as many of them as possible. This coming week features our 5th grade instrumental concerts at VHS, an opportunity for our string and band students to showcase their many skills and talents. Both 4th and 5th graders also have their end of year concerts which we are eagerly anticipating, both of which will take place on campus in our MPR on June 7th during their regular music times (8:00 and 9:00 a.m.) We are all very excited about our upcoming Spring Sing performance for grades K-5th the morning of May 25th, followed on June 2nd and 3rd by our mini production of Seussical the Musical. Our family Carnival and Talent Show will close out the year nicely, scheduled for the evening of June 9th. I truly hope you are all able to join us for these many exciting events, as we prepare to end yet another eventful and memorable school year.

      To our Roadrunners as we approach these last few weeks, I have a very important and valuable message: Stay the course, remain committed to your goals, and strive to utilize every possible moment right up until the very last day.  How I cherish the growth and achievement I have observed in every single one of you this year. And to our wonderful Rose Drive families: I continue to be grateful for every day that I am able to serve you and your children at this magical school - it is an experience that I eagerly anticipate every morning as I arrive for yet another day of adventure and discovery.

Rose Drive Morning Valet
On any given morning before school starts, you will find a team of our responsible and enthusiastic 4th and 5th graders, greeting and waving cars forward in the Rose Drive parking lot. Their role is an important one, requiring them to:
1) greet parents and students as they arrive with a smile; 2) ensure cars pull ALL the way forward so as to keep a regular and consistent flow of traffic; 3) open and close car doors to ensure students exit in a safe and efficient manner and of course; 4) bid parents a friendly farewell with a wave and a "Have a nice day!" Thank you to all five teams for your commitment to this important duty and for your smiles despite the early hours. Come rain or shine, wind or cold, we commend you for your commitment to the safety and routine. Our teams for this school year include: Red Vines, Magical Unicorns, Rosie Patrol, Rainbow Rosies, and Rosie Rockets. Go TEAM Valet!

Rosie’s STARS Cards - PBIS

A strong focus at Rose Drive this year is our school-wide PBIS behavior expectations program. We have identified 6 areas on campus which will serve as focal points for appropriate behavior throughout the year. The program strives to reinforce positive behavior by zeroing in on six specific areas on campus. We will be introducing each area and the expected behaviors over the next few weeks and reinforcing good choices and exemplary behavior through the issuing of STARS cards. Students keep one copy to show off at home while the second copy is added to our weekly drawing. Students whose names are pulled will be announced on Friday morning and invited to Dr. Adamson’s office to select from an array of Rosie prizes. We encourage you to reinforce STARS behavior at home: Safe, There and Ready, Act responsibly, Respectful, and Show compassion.

Rose Drive Parking Lot Safety

    Student safety and the safety of others is, of course, a primary concern of all of ours.  A huge thank you to all of our parents for driving slowly and safely through our valet parking with the extra attention, caution, and patience needed for the safety of our students.  Please remember to only allow students to get in and out of cars in our marked valet sections of the parking lot.  NEVER attempt to cross Rose Drive unless you are using the crosswalk.

PYLUSD will offer free workshops on various educational topics throughout the school year so parents can become better equipped to support their child’s learning. Research indicates that when schools work together with families to support learning, students perform better in school and throughout life.
