WEEKLY NEWS
This year all K-5 teachers in Roseville City School District adopted a new writing curriculum by Lucy Calkins.  Our students are enjoying their daily writing experiences. It's been so fun walking through classrooms and seeing this curriculum develop for our students from Kindergarten all the way up through our 5th grade classrooms. Today I had the opportunity to sit with 1st grade students sharing their Writer's Workshop stories with their peers and some parent volunteers.  Their ideas are endless and the details they add to their stories are so creative! 

We are looking forward to our Fall Festival this evening at Diamond Creek from 5-8 PM! There will be games, food and family fun for our students! This is a community event that we look forward to each year.  Our Book Fair will also remain open throughout the evening. We hope to see you there!

Student Lunch Times
There have been some questions about our student lunch times and the length of them per grade level. We want to communicate that students are given the opportunity every day to stay in the lunch room and finish eating their lunch.  This is an announcement that is made almost daily to students as a reminder.  Some days, our hot lunch line is longer which can decrease the amount of time students feel they have to eat, but they are always welcome to stay as long as they need to finish lunch.
