Principal's Corner

Dear Parents,

Here at Rowan, we continue to develop school wide and classroom behavioral expectations that are taught, modeled, reinforced and corrected throughout the instructional day. We use data analysis in order to determine if practices are effective, efficient and relevant. This supports the development of a safer and more effective school because the focus is on prevention and improving our school's ability to reach and support positive behavior for all students. Our four expectations continue to be the following: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Ready to Learn

Please review with your child expectations for learning and behavior while they are learning at Rowan. We expect all students to come ready to learn, follow school rules and listen to the directions given by adults while they are in school. By working together we can support our students.

Career Day at Rowan Avenue!

Rowan Avenue Elementary had Career Day on Thursday, April 6th. Many parents and people from the community volunteered their morning to share their careers with Rowan students. Kindergarten through Second grade had the opportunity to meet with a Los Angeles Police Officer on bike, a Los Angeles Unified School Police and his police car, Fire Fighters and their truck, and a Cal Trans Operator on their truck.

Grade Three through Fifth had the opportunity to meet with a Security Officer, an Artist, a Radiologist, a Martial Arts Instructor, a Medical Assistance, a L.A.P.D Officer, a Director from L.A.U.S.D, an Engineer, an International Specialist, a Realtor, a Librarian, an Information Technologist, an Assistant Principal, and a Nutritionist.

Everyone had a great time and learned a lot about different types of careers.  East Los Angeles citizens will certainly have some fine future leaders.

Please visit the School Events for more information and pictures.



Saturday, April 22nd will be our Rowan Earth Day. A special thanks to Mr. Aburto for leading us in this project. He has taken the initiative to order materials and guide his Tuesday After school Research Club to begin the process of beautifying our school.

If you would like to donate any flower plants or seeds, please contact Principal Mrs. Gutierrez.



Rowan Avenue School presents its first Father/Daughter Dance. The event took place on Friday, February 10th, from 3:00-5:00 p.m., in the auditorium.  The admission ticket included a souvenir picture and a DJ dance party. Food items where sold at the event.

Thank you to all the parents and staff members who volunteered their time and effort to make this event a great success! 


     In an effort to provide parents with additional support at home, Rowan Staff decided to host a Math/Science Family Night for all of the students and families at Rowan Avenue Elementary School. This event took place on Tuesday, January 31st, from 5:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. with well over 700 parents in attendance.

     The purpose of this event was to provide each attending family an opportunity to explore the wonders of Math or Science with their children, and enjoy an exciting evening of hands-on learning activities and games.

     Every teacher participated in this event, setting up a grade-level Math/Science project in his/her classroom. We called our evening Math/Science Family Night for a reason: we wanted the emphasis to be on families exploring and investigating together in fun ways.


Congratulations 2015 - 2016 Rowan Avenue Students!
