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.

Sincerely,

Margarita Gutierrez

     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.

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.

Congratulations 2015 - 2016 Rowan Avenue Students!

2015-2016 3rd Grade







You've run the course and passed the exams!
The California Department of Education released the second year results of standardized tests in math and English language arts/literacy on August 24, 2016. The tests are based on the Common Core State Standards.

Parents can find the 2016 scores at EdSource and the California Department of Education websites.

The Music Center presents, Storytelling: "We Tell Stories"

About the performance:

“Cuentos de la Familia” is a program of Latino folk tales that is performed bilingually (in English and Spanish). Hispanic heritage and a love of the language are shown in this fast paced show. A standard performance is comprised of three stories chosen from the following: “Juan Bobo” is a foolish, but very courteous young man, who is sent on an errand by his mother. “El Anciano” is a wise village elder who advises townspeople and settles their disputes; “The Invisible Hunters” is a Miskito Indian tale from Nicaragua about the effects of greed; and “Macario” is the tale of a poor, but unselfish man, who is about to have his greatest wish come true. “The Man Who Understood the Language of Animals” is about trust and love between man and animals and man and wife; “The Day it Snowed Tortillas” shows how a married couple’s strengths and weaknesses can complement each other. Three actors use the company's signature trunk filled with props and costumes to bring the folktales to life.


 

A Fair of the Arts

Students from Rowan Avenue  will be performing on April 29th @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm at Anton Elementary:

Rowan Bulldogs Drill Team, Rowan's Hip Hoppin' Bulldogs, and fourth grade students acting (Ms. Valido, Ms. Muñoz, Ms. Navarette, & Ms. Fehoko). There will other performance from Anton Elementary and the Music Center.

 

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
