    Principal’s Message 7/10/18

    July 10, 2018


    Hello Rose City, let's circle up!                                                                                    

    I want to welcome everyone to our new website, our new school, our new configuration and some of our new folks--both staff and students!  I am calling this writing “Cohen’s Circle” because I want to draw on the powerful image and history of community circles as places where people come to share success, problem solve, study and create relationships.  Ancient cultures around the world have sat in a circle and many continue to practice versions of circling up.

    In the final weeks of the last school year our leadership team met to create some of the underlying ideas and practices that will guide our school and at the center of that process was the community circle.  As a community that puts great value in relationship, restorative practices, collaborative problem solving and team generated solutions it is important that we recognize the circle as a tool to make all members valuable, seen and on even ground.  As I type this message, the vast majority of our staff are taking a course from Mindful Schools on creating a mindful practice, which is the first course towards bringing mindful practices into the classroom.  When we start this new school year, we will have a staff ready to take care of students by making sure they are taking care of themselves as well.  Our social-emotional curriculum is consistent with circle practices and mindfulness, and our overall approach to engaging our students, families and community is through relationship building--both literally and metaphorically circling up. 

    Right now there are crews inside Rose City Park working to get the school ready for the new year--moving walls, adding class space, updating bathrooms, abating hazards.  If all goes well we will have a “new” old building to welcome in the year with.  In the meantime, there are opportunities to get to know some of your classmates at some community events--there will be a PTO presence at the two Rose City Park Park concerts in the park (July 21 and July 28, 6pm) and there will be a series of “meetups” by grade in August.

    • Kinder/1st--August 5, 6pm Rose City Park Park Playground
    • 2nd/3rd--August 12, 6pm Rose City Park Park Playground
    • 4th/5th--August 19, 6pm Rose City Park School Playground (it should be ready!) 

    We also are planning an “open house” to see the building during the week before school starts (August 20-24) but we need to wait to see about construction before picking a date.  Finally, we are having a “Grand Opening” celebration/picnic the evening of Thursday, August 30.  We will have a planned ceremony to open the school and then have a picnic to build our new community.

    I am excited to get this new year going and I am excited to have Anh Nguyen-Johnson as our Assistant Principal helping make sure things are going well.  She is an amazing addition to our team and I know we will all benefit from her experience, attention to detail and passion for great education.  As always, if you have questions, please reach out to me directly.  Don’t talk about me, talk to me. I’ll see you all soon!

    With respect for all you do for our students,

    Jeremy Cohen
    Principal, Rose City Park K-5

Rose City Park - FAQs

  • Who gets to go to Rose City Park?
    Because of the boundary changes, there are three groups of students who are going to be “assigned” to Rose City Park.  1. Students in grades K-4 currently at Roseway Heights, will automatically become grades 1-5 at Rose City Park.  2. Students in the section of Beverly Cleary School that has been assigned into the Rose City Park area grades K-3.  3. Incoming new students to PPS who are either Kindergarten or older living in the NEW Rose City Park Boundary.

    Do I have to go to Rose City Park?
    If you are in the boundary for Rose City Park and new to PPS (including Kindergarteners) you can apply for the lottery to a Focus Option or Immersion School.  If you are a current Roseway Heights student and live in the boundary for a different feeder school (Lee, Vestal, Scott) you can apply for a transfer (it is guaranteed) to that school.  If you are a BCS student who has an older sibling who will still be at BCS next year you can apply for a transfer to stay at BCS.  

    Who is going to Roseway Heights?
    Roseway Heights will open as the 6-8 grade middle school for students from Rose City Park, Jason Lee, Scott, and Vestal.  Students are Roseway Heights will then feed into Madison High School.

    What is happening to the Vietnamese program currently at Roseway Heights?
    The Vietnamese Dual Language Program is moving to Rose City Park.  Next year it will be Kindergarten-4th grade, and the year after we will have a fully articulated program that will feed into Roseway Heights and Madison H. S.  

    Will there be enough room at Rose City Park?  I heard it is going to be over-enrolled.
    We think there will be enough room at Rose City Park.  Depending on some construction decisions and how many students choose to accept and/or reject the “grandfather” placement, our numbers could change from the projections.  We are very flexible thinkers, and we know that education happens in all types of settings--we will provide the very best education regardless of challenges a building brings.

    Who will the teachers be at Rose City Park?
    The teachers initially assigned to Rose City Park will be the K-5 staff from Roseway Heights.  This is because of an agreement between the teacher union (PAT) and PPS about how to staff the new school.  If there are additional openings, the administration will consider any available teachers that are interested in working at Rose City Park.  This may include Beverly Cleary teachers.  Of course, as is the case in any school, teachers are always free to apply for and accept jobs at other schools--so we won’t know exactly who is going to be teaching at Rose City Park until the staffing process is completely done in early summer.  

    What are Rose City Park school hours?
    Rose City Park will serve breakfast starting at 7:40am.  The doors will open for all students at 7:50 and class will begin at 8am.  School will end at 2:15.  Our offices will be open from 7:30-4 each school day.  

    Will there be aftercare? 
    Yes.  We don’t yet know the specific provider, but there will be an aftercare program at Rose City Park.  It will be contracted through PPS in the same way the Hand in Hand is at Roseway Heights and Campfire is at Beverly Cleary--which is to say it is fee based.  

    Will the building be worked on this summer?
    Yes.  There are plans currently to increase the accessibility of the ground floor (where the gym and cafeteria are) and address other accessibility concerns.  There is also some interior work that will be done in order to get the school ready to open as a neighborhood school.  We should know more specifically what will be done soon.

    Will there be a PTA at Rose City Park?
    There will be Parent organization.  The board members of Roseway Heights PTA and Beverly Cleary PTA are engaged in meetings to figure out the best way to proceed and how to create a shared group that supports the teachers and school.  

    Where can I get the most up to date information?
    We will be updating the “Rose City Park” tab on the Roseway Heights webpage (pps.net/rosewayheights) until we get a Rose City Park webpage of our own.  Additionally, we will send information out through Roseway Heights and Beverly Clearly School email lists.  If you use Facebook, there is an “official” Rose City Park Elementary page that will also be updated.  

    Who do I contact if I have more questions?
    If your questions are about what school you will attend, contact Enrollment and Transfer at 503-916-3205.  If your questions are about what will be at Rose City Park, contact Jeremy Cohen (Principal) at jcohen@pps.net or by phone at 503-319-3245.
