Rose Creek Elementary is located in the city of Riverton, Utah. The school’s mission is help students develop personally and academically so they may pursue the life and/or career pathway of their choosing following high school graduation. To accomplish this, faculty and staff teach students to understand and apply the 7 Habits of Effective Leaders in their day to day interactions. High academic standards are equally important and are the focus of daily instruction.
Rose Creek Elementary serves approximately 850 students on a traditional schedule. The school day begins at 8:55 a.m. and ends at 3:35 p.m., except on Fridays when school is dismissed at 1:35 p.m. to allow teachers planning time. Bus service is provided for students who live 1-1/2 miles or more from school. Well-balanced meals are provided daily through the school’s hot lunch program. Reduced rate or free lunches are available to students in need.
The Rose Creek staff is well qualified. Teachers hail from many different states with a variety of backgrounds and specialty training. Teachers work in professional learning communities (PLC) in order to give students access to the best talents of each teacher. Each team receives time weekly to work in their PLC’s. The primary focus of their work together is student growth and achievement. Conversations focus on the following questions: What do we want students to know or be able to do? How will we know if they know it or can do it? What will we do if they already know it or can do it? (Acceleration or Enrichment) What will we do if they don’t know it or can’t do it? (Remediation).
Specialized programs in the school include two Autism Support Classrooms, Resource, Speech and Language Services, and counseling. Additionally, students in grades 4-6 may participate in a thriving band program with before school practices and two annual concerts. Students may also participate in our after school STEM program or a before school Robotics program. Technology is integral part of the school. Students have access to two computer labs along with mobile computer, Chromebook and ipad labs. All classrooms are equipped with projectors, apple tv’s, document cameras, and voice enhancers.
Rose Creek Elementary is a lab school for Brigham Young University. We support 2-3 teacher internships each year along with inviting numerous practicum and student teachers into our classrooms to learn from the best! This partnership has been a source of growth for veteran and new teachers alike.
All faculty members have received some level of training in the Comprehensive Mathematics Instruction professional development. The training is designed to broaden teacher knowledge of K-8 mathematics along with deepening their skills for teaching for understanding. Classroom instruction often includes problem solving tasks designed to connect and extend mathematical thinking.
All staff members teach the Utah State Elementary Core Standards and utilize curriculum aligned to the standards. These standards can be found at www.jordandistrict.org.
The school benefits from two supportive, collaborative parent groups. PTA officers and parent volunteers provide hours of service in the school each week. Our School Community Council supports instructional programs and makes funding decisions regarding state Land Trust funds. Contact information for board members serving in either group can be found on this web site.
Rose Creek students are positive, willing to work hard, and dedicated to learning and growing. We appreciate our families for ensuring good attendance and working with us to ensure the best academic outcome possible for their children.
