Rosedale Elementary School
We believe all students deserve:
to attend school in a learning rich environment surrounded by caring and supportive adults. This is an environment that is conducive to learning, where there are high expectations for success and opportunities to learn with a curriculum that is challenging, incorporates meaningful real-life experiences, and uses a wide range of resources. Students deserve to feel safe at school, have a comfort level that allows them to take risks without the fear of failure, be respected for who they are, appreciated for how they learn, and evaluated on their own merit.
All adults in our community are living by these core convictions daily and as a result, show the following attitudes and actions:
are active in the educational process by participating in school leadership and functions. Parents support their children by making sure that homework is a priority, by assuring that their children are at school daily and that their basic needs (sleep, food, clothing, health) are met. The adults take the responsibility of being a role model seriously and engage in behavior that warrants being modeled. All adults in the community show that they value education by talking positively about the school, providing resources, and volunteering. When working with children, the adults hold high expectations regarding academic performance and behavior. All adults feel comfortable at school and are willing to voice praise, as well as concerns.
In this environment where all adults are living by their core convictions, all students:
respect self, others, and property. They demonstrate good citizenship by using life skills and taking responsibility for their own actions. They strive for excellence in every job and understand the value of hard work. They are self-motivated, energetic, and willing to take on challenges. Students come to school prepared to learn and ready to be accountable for their own learning. They are well rested, clean, and have healthy diets. Students perform at grade level or higher in all academic areas. They attend school daily, behave appropriately, and are highly engaged in learning.
As a result of these efforts, our school's student achievement data is as follows:
