Dear Rootstown Parents:
It is difficult to believe that the first nine weeks is over. It seems like our Open House was just the other day and the school year was about to begin. I am happy to report that the 2015-16 school year is off to a great start.
The report card your child received last Friday measures your child's progress for the first nine weeks of school. Please take the time to discuss your child's report card with your child(ren) and develop a plan for future nine weeks. Please sign the report card and return it back to his/her teacher. It is important that your child hears your expectations for future report cards so he/she is in agreement with you. These expectations can be shared with your child's teacher at Parent-Teacher Conferences held on November 19th from 4-8:30 p.m. or November 23rd from 4-8:30 p.m. I encourage all of you to schedule a conference time with your child(ren)'s teacher on one of these nights.
Finally, I am pleased to report that our “Rover PRIDE” theme for student behavior is off to a great start once again this year. The staff began the year with teaching appropriate behavior expectations for the classroom, hallway, playground, bus, and cafeteria. Grade level meetings were held on the first day of school to discuss this program and to teach expectations for Rover PRIDE. Rover PRIDE posters were hung throughout the building as reminders for expected behavior. Mrs. Ray, School Counselor, has been teaching lessons related to the traits found in our matrix during the students’ library skills specials. Rover PRIDE tickets and the monthly Turner Awards are used again this year to acknowledge students demonstrating Rover PRIDE.
Please contact your child's teacher or me during the year if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to seeing all of you at conferences on November 19th or November 23rd.
Jeffrey Turner, Principal
