Rowland Elementary recently participated in Read Across America. The purpose of this annual nation-wide event is to build motivation for reading. We invite all students to celebrate reading on March 2 which is the birthday of Dr. Seuss, the beloved children's author.
We had lots of District staff and community members attend and read to students. We also had a special visit from the 501st Legion who brought the "Force of Reading" to the school. Check out the slideshow below from our event.
Spring is right around the corner and like nature all around us, students are blooming and showing off all that they have been learning this year.
Teachers have been working hard to prepare our students to demonstrate their learning of standards both in their classroom assignments and on upcoming state tests for grades 3-6. We recently completed parent-teacher conferences and report cards are going home next week. Both of these help parents know how their kids are doing in school.
We have also been working on providing enrichment opportunities and fun events to build engagement and school community. Students have learned about Chinese New Year and African American History recently and attended amazing assemblies to enhance the learning that occurred in classrooms. We have continued to spread our message about having good attendance because we know that school achievement and good attendance go hand in hand. Our kids met our attendance challenge this week and we will have a “Duct Tape the Principal” event next week.
