Greetings Rooftop Community!

Hello all, the end of the year is fast approaching.  I do not believe it will be May by the weeks end.  I would like to take a few minutes to invite everyone to this year’s Open House.  It is scheduled for Wednesday, May 4, 2011.  The Burnett Campus will be open from 6:00- 7:00 and the Mayeda campus will be open from 6:30- 7:30.  This is great time to walk through all the classes to see the incredible amount of learning the students have completed this year.  Open House is an important celebration for the entire community.

We will open both blacktop areas for extra parking.  I would like to remind everyone that the event is self paced and therefore cars will be coming and going at different times.  PLEASE DO NOT BLOCK ANYONE IN A PARKING SPOT.  Tiffany and I will help with the parking to be the most efficient as possible.

I would like to give an update on the state of the school budget.  I have been informed that the school will be using scenario B for our funding for next year.  This funding does allow Rooftop to keep its current staffing.  With the state continuing to find ways to balance the state budget, it is expected that the district will need to cut a significant amount of funds both this year and next.  The district stated they will not be making these cuts at the site but more at the district level.

Sincerely, Diana Marshall
