Fourth Grade Performance of "The Road to Golden State"

Creative Youth Theatre (CYT) educates Los Angeles based elementary and middle school aged youth through the exploration of classic story telling elements and the creation of original artistic works. The Creative Youth Theatre, Fall session 2017 worked with Ms. Muñoz and Ms. Valido's fourth grade students. Students wrote, created and appeared in their own original theatrical piece while cultivating an understanding of the valuable life skills inherent to the play-making process including teamwork, conflict resolution, public speaking, and responsibility. 


Great job fourth grade!!



College Awareness Month!

As part of the District's commitment to graduate every student college-prepared and career ready, Rowan Avenue has adopted October as College Awareness Month to promote a college-going culture. We are encouraging everyone to participate by wearing a College T-Shirt every Thursday in October!

October is Emergency Preparedness Month!

     Your child's safety is our number ONE priority! Therefore, Rowan Ave. will participate in a District-wide emergency practice called the "Great CA Shake-out. This drill will take place on Thursday, October 19th at 8:30 a.m. Our students and staff will put into practice emergency preparedness for a simulated 7.5 earthquake. The Safe School Committee members, led by our Assistant Principal, Ms. Soto, have been working hard to prepare our school for this drill. Students will be asked to drop, cover, and hold, until the simulated earthquake stops. Students will then convene in their emergency line-up area. 

     Part of the plan includes checking our emergency supplies, and conducting a safety inspection of the school's facilities.

Emergency drills help students and staff prepare for a real emergency.

     We encourage everyone to take some time to talk to their family about your own emergency plans. Communication with your family is important to staying safe! 

Remember, the American Red Cross is an excellent resource:

Rowan Earth Day

Thank you to all the Rowan students and families who joined us on Saturday, April 22nd for Rowan Earth Day. Our projects were to plant, paint, and clean and beautify the school. The event was a success because we were partners in creating a safe and nurturing learning environment for all students. Way to go!


Math/Science Family Night

     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.
