Greetings, Rosebank families! I hope everyone is enjoying a nice weekend with this good weather.
Weekend Homework – Finish writing “Possum” responses and typing them in edmodo. If you do not have access, just finish the writing part and then type in edmodo at school Monday. Get Weekly Progress Report signed and AR report (pink or yellow) initialed and brought back Monday.
Egg Drop Supplies – Thank you so much for all the donations! Parents are the best! We have PLENTY of supplies which is awesome! The students started constructing their project on Friday. They were SO excited! We have this coming Friday to finish our designs and make sure they are ready. Our Egg Drop Day will be the following Friday April 29. I believe it will be 9 AM in our hallway. Parents are welcome to attend!
Cabrillo Trip – Our trip will be next Wed. April 27. Thank you to those who have sent in the permission slips and $8 bus cost donation early. The deadline is this Friday, April 22.

If you are interested, please email me right away or send in the interest letter. Thank you!

Safety Patrol – Congratulations to the newest members of Safety Patrol from our class: Omar, Jesus H., Manolo, Ryleigh, Audrey, and Lucia. I hope I got everyone. Way to go, Panthers! Don’t forget to sign your Oath of Office and return it by Tuesday so you can begin your training!
Upcoming CAASPP Tests – 4th grade will be participating in the state CAASPP tests the week of May 2-6. We are working hard to prepare in class. Here are a few important reminders for testing week:
- Have your child eat a healthy breakfast at home or at school everyday. Breakfast is served in the cafeteria from 8:20-8:35. Students will NOT have time to get 2nd Chance Breakfast during testing week. They may bring their own snack or eat the light snack the school may provide. We will only have a 10-minute snack and stretch break in the middle of morning tests.
- Please schedule all appointments during other weeks, not May 2-6. Or if you must schedule an appointment, please make it for the afternoon. Thank you!
- I recommend that students bring their own headphones/earbuds for the tests. Many students complain that the headphones at school hurt their heads/ears. Please have the students bring their headphones/earbuds to class NOW so they can practice using them in the next two weeks BEFORE testing. Also, some brands don’t plug in or work very well with our Yoga Lenovo laptops, so students need to bring it in to try it. Thank you so much!
- Donations for snacks during testing would be greatly appreciated. Snacks like granola bars, applesauce cups with spoons, crackers, rice cakes, small bananas, apples, tangerines, etc. would be perfect. Nothing sugary (refined sugar) please. Small water bottles would also be good. We have 30 students in our class. A HUGE, HUGE thank you for any donations you can send.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, parents for all you do for our class. I know you are busy, and so I deeply appreciate all the time you take to help your child with homework, to speak with them about Core Values, to send donations for our projects, etc. You do so much, and it shows in how wonderful your children are, how hard they work, and how they care about others. Please email or call me with any questions any time.
Happy late birthday shout-out to Audrey!
Have a terrific week, Panthers! ~ Mrs. King 🙂
