Welcome to Rose Creek Elementary!

September 2019

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to a new school year! Our faculty and staff are absolutely the best I’ve ever worked with. They have dedicated hearts and have a depth of understanding the art and skill of teaching. I hope you and your children enjoy their expertise and kindness as much as I do.

We were awarded a state grant and will continue to use the K-5 Lexia Reading program. The number of units assigned weekly to each student varies based on the needs of each student. Please contact your child’s teacher if you haven’t received log-in information. Your support from home helps us reach student goals. Thank you!

We will continue teaching learning traits along with the Utah State Core Standards. Students are currently learning about having a Growth Mindset and the importance of The Learning Pit. In a nutshell, people with a growth mindset believe they can get smarter and as a result get smarter! Visit Carol Dweck’s website to learn more about the Growth Mindset. The companion trait to this is from work being done by James Nottingham from the UK. This video, The Learning Pit, gives a quick overview of his research. Our students relate well to the Learning Pit! It helps them understand that deep learning is often accompanied by confusion. Persistence and the right support help students “out of the pit.”

It’s a pleasure to be with your children every day. They are full of hope and possibility and bring me joy.
