Roseau Elementary School
February 23, 2017
Hello to Parents of Kindergarten Students of 2017-2018!
This letter is to inform you of items to better prepare you for the upcoming scheduled events for your child. Roseau Elementary School is making preparations for your child to attend Kindergarten. This is a very exciting time for you as parents and for us as educators!
Kindergarten Roundup will be the week of March 13-17.
Kindergarten Roundup will take place in the kindergarten rooms. Kindergarten Roundup is intended to assist children in developing a familiarity with the kindergarten setting, the school environment and the teachers and staff.
As we “HOP INTO KINDERGARTEN”, the following daily schedule will occur during the week of March 13-17:
9:00 a.m. - 9:15 a.m. Mrs. Brateng – Storytime/Smartboard
9:15a.m. - 9:30 a.m. Mrs. Jensen – Reading
9:30 a.m. - 9:45 a.m. Mrs. Guy - Math
9:45a.m. - 10:00 a.m. Mrs. McCormack – Handwriting
Please follow the above schedule and times closely. If your child is enrolled in Learning Readiness or morning Headstart, they will attend Kindergarten Roundup on their scheduled day of school. The afternoon Headstart students will visit a classroom for some activity time. If not enrolled in Learning Readiness or Headstart, please call the elementary school office to inform us as to which day your child will visit school. We are holding regular Kindergarten classes on these days as well. The current Kindergarten students will be supervised by Angie Steinbach, School Readiness Teacher, during the Kindergarten Roundup scheduled times.
Kindergarten PARENT Orientation meetings are scheduled for Thursday, March 23rd at 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. in the school theater. Topics such as curriculum, bussing, lunch program, child readiness will be discussed at this meeting. Two meetings are scheduled but you can choose to attend one of them.
Please return the enclosed forms to the office by March 23rd, so we will know the number of students that will be enrolling next September. Also, call the elementary school office, the kindergarten teachers, Angie Steinbach or Wayne LePard with any questions regarding Kindergarten entrance or Kindergarten Roundup at 218-463-2746.
New Playground Equipment Underconstruction
Exciting times are beginning today for our students. A new piece of playground equipment is being constructed over the weekend near the football field ticket booth. The cement footings are to be poured today and construction will begin shortly after that. Many of you will be here this Saturday morning for elementary grades 5-6 football. You will notice the fast progress of the construction.
Please be aware of safety for each other when around that area over the next few days.
Also, the playground equipment near the high school track and fourth grade doors will have new edging and mulch replaced this weekend. So, both areas will have safety construction tape posted around them.
The playground project was a combined financial effort between Roseau Community Schools and the Roseau Parent Teacher Organization. The financial cost was just under $50,000.00. The Roseau PTO has contributed many thousands of dollars to our school for the benefit of students over the years. This is just another outstanding effort by this well organized group of supporters. Our students and staff are grateful to have the support of our Roseau PTO.
