Principal's Message

 

Welcome Rosita Roadrunners!!!

Welcome to the 2023-23 school year! Last year, our third in a series of challenging years since the pandemic hit in 2020, gave our students a sense of normalcy although we still had challenges with masking, social distancing and bringing our community back on campus. I am incredibly proud of the strides that our staff, students and community have made this last year.  It is my pleasure to be part of a school that has received many accolades including 2018 California Distinguished School and recognition for 2 years as an Educational Results Partnership Honor Roll School in 2017-18 and 2018-19. I look forward to working with you to continue the great work at Rosita. 

This year we will continue to focus on our District's Strategic Plan: Academic Skills +  Personal Skills = Lifelong Success!  Our academic program is rigorous, engaging, and aligned to the state standards.   Our amazing teachers use research based strategies to develop students’ critical thinking skills, including the meaningful use of technology in instruction,  learning how to collaborate, and help students develop scholarly habits and motivation. As a staff, we are committed to 21st Century Learning to best prepare students for a successful future. In these challenging times, it is also a priority at Rosita to support the social-emotional well-being of our students and families. This year, additional resources have been allocated to support students who may still be recovering from the challenges and trauma from the events of the past three years.

I look forward to working together with students, staff, and parents to continue providing the best educational experience possible for our students.  Thank you for your continued support of Rosita and its programs. If you have any questions or concerns, please call me at (714) 663-6418.

Sincerely,

Cheryl Ruiz, Rosita Principal

Our School

What’s so special about Rosita? Academic Excellence, 21st Century Technology, Student Recognition, Parent and Community Engagement, and our School Garden to name a few! 

Academic Excellence: Rosita was named a 2018 California Distinguished School and a 2018 California Honor Roll School for academic success and high levels of college readiness among students! These prestigious awards are only presented to the state's most inspiring and successful public schools. 

21st Century Technology: Rosita has a 1:1 computer to student ratio and students engage with iPads and/or Chromebooks as part of daily instruction. We have a Technology Assistant in our computer lab. Many of our students participate in an after school Coding Class and last year 60 students participated in a First Lego League Robotics Competition sponsored by Lego Land. They built and programmed several robots that completed tasks at Lego Land against many other schools from Southern California.

Modernized Campus: Rosita Elementary School boasts a recently-modernized campus with increased security and air-conditioned classrooms.

Free State Preschool:  Rosita is proud to offer a free state preschool program on campus and childcare and after-school activities in academics, art, and athletics through the Boys & Girls Club.

College Readiness: Rosita’s robust College and Career Mentoring Program pairs elementary students with college students who serve as positive role models, provide help with school work, and promote positive self-esteem.

Positive School Climate: Our positive school climate promotes student success. Students are valued by teachers and staff and feel a connection to the school through a variety of special events. Each class leads the school in a weekly Friday Flag presentation that includes a Patriotic song or topical skit. Our active Student Council sponsors many Spirit Days, Santa Grams, and Valentine Grams. Students participate in our Halloween Parade and Pumpkin Decorating Contest, Kindness Week, Read Across America Week, Red Ribbon Week, 100 Days of School celebration, March in Motion, and Monthly College Promotion Days. Our sixth grade students participate in an Overnight Aquarium Field Trip, along with many other special sixth trade activities. We also have our school garden planted with a “Salsa Garden” theme with tomatoes, onions, peppers, and cilantro that we plan to harvest in May with a tasting for students.

Parent Engagement: Rosita offers many opportunities for parents to engage in their child’s education through online resources to help with homework support as well as family technology nights, PTO, and parent education classes. Parents enjoy our welcoming climate through participation in school community events like Kite Day, Walk-a-thon Color Run, Track and Field Days, Pastries with Parents, BBQ Movie Night, Skate Nights, Santa’s Breakfast, Muffins with Moms, Donuts with Dads, Volunteer Breakfast, Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast, and Family Nights with Math and Technology.
