Welcome to Rose Creek Elementary!
Dear Parents and Students of Rose Creek Elementary,
Wonderful things are happening at RC! It is such a pleasure to visit classrooms and sit in on the learning discussions. We have some phenomenal teachers in our building and some pretty phenomenal students, too!
Teachers will be attending a half-day training to discuss best practices for writing instruction November 13, 14, or 15th . Writing can be difficult as it is often a way of synthesizing learning. They will be working with other grade level teachers in the Riverton feeder system.
We have Netsmartz assemblies on Monday, November 13 th . They are state sponsored and provide students with excellent information about safe internet practices. The assembly only covers a limited amount of information, though, and I recommend that families spend time watching videos or reviewing content provided at www.netsmartz.org.
Please ask your child to stop by the lost and found to look for lost items. We will be taking unclaimed items to Deseret Industries over Christmas Break. We have a number of jackets and hoodies needing to go to their owner.
Thank you for being dedicated, caring parents. I have the best job in the world…working with your children!
Life is Good!
We’ve had great growth over the past few years and want to keep that going! Our students are working on the following two goals. We could sure use your help to meet our Lexia goals!
1. Score above 55% on SAGE Reading/Writing by June 2018.
2. Have 85% of all students complete assigned Lexia minutes weekly.
What is Lexia?
Lexia is a supplemental reading program in use in all classrooms in the school. Students are placed on an individualized learning path designed to fill gaps in learning as well as enrich or extend reading skills. The number of reading minutes assigned varies from 20-100 minutes. Most teachers are able to provide 30 minutes of Lexia time during the school week and we appreciate your help in providing time for students to work on it at home. Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions.
What is a PLC?
You might have heard your children mention the term PLC as they discuss the work their teacher is doing while meeting with other teachers on the team. A PLC is an acronym for professional learning community and is “an ongoing process in which educators work collaboratively in recurring cycles of collective inquiry and action research to achieve better results for the students they serve. Professional learning communities operate under the assumption that the key to improved learning for students is continuous job-embedded learning for educators.” Visit this link to learn more. Teachers meet weekly to discuss student learning, design lessons, and create interventions to remediate or enrich student learning experiences. Our teacher teams are doing great things!
