Attachment: Welcome Rooftop Parents 2013-2014 (PDF)

Welcome to School Year 2013 – 2014!   It is hard to believe that our summer break is over.  Yes, it’s time to get back.  It’s time to get rolling again.  School year 2013 – 2014, here we come!

We continue the work that we have done in creating a safe, positive and joyful environment for all. This year, we shall focus on the following theme: Building, Strengthening, and Sustaining a Strong Community of Successful Learners. This aligns eloquently with our Balanced Scorecard priorities.  The exciting work that we have started on the Common Core State Standards and Response to Intervention last school year positions us well with what is ahead of us.  Needless to say, this work can only be delivered well when we, as a team, make it happen.  Our focused collaborative work is key in ensuring that ALL students are successfully meeting standards in an environment that fosters community, encourages and reinforces positive behavior, supports and celebrates every member of our school community.

School opens on Monday, August 19th, 2013.  Classes will begin promptly at 7:50 a.m. Please plan on dropping off your child/children early, as traffic is hectic on the first day of school.  We invite you to come to the Multi-Purpose Room at the Burnett campus for coffee sponsored by the Parent Teacher Association right when the bell rings.  We will be available to meet with parents, guardians and families.

Just a few reminders:

  • Please expect a packet from the school by Wednesday, August 21st, that contains important forms that need to be completed no later than Friday, August 24th.
  • Seventh Grade parents: Please have your child’s TDAP shot record ready for submission.
  • Kindergarten orientation is at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 14th at the Burnett Multi-Purpose Room and the Play date is from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 17th at Burnett Campus.
  • Please plan on coming to our Back-to-School picnic at 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 25th, 2013 at Midtown Terrace Playground, 280 Olympia Way.
  • We are looking forward to seeing you at the Mayeda Back-to-School Night on Thursday, August 22nd and the Burnett Back-to-School Night on Thursday, August 29th both starting at 6:15 p.m.

Feel free to contact the school for questions / concerns at 522-6757 (Mayeda) or 695-5692 (Burnett).  You are also welcome to email us directly at principal@rooftopk8.org.

We are looking forward to a fantastic school year.  Let’s work together in building, strengthening, and sustaining a strong community of successful learners.  See you soon!
