Principal's Message

Dear Families of Rosewood Park STEAM Academy, 

Welcome to the new 2023-2024 school year, we would like to take this opportunity to welcome everyone back and for our new students and families, we welcome you to the RAMS family! We are the RAMS….  Respectful, Accountable, Motivated and Successful! 

We are proud to announce our new school name, Rosewood Park STEAM Academy! As a STEAM Academy we strive to foster lifelong learners by engaging students in a rigorous hands-on approach to learning Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM). This approach to learning also exposes students to STEAM fields, which are currently the fastest growing occupations. In addition, we provide students with opportunities to learn through critical thinking and problem solving utilizing Project Based Learning (PBL). We also look forward to fostering a home and school partnership by providing our families with engaging ‘STEAM Night’ opportunities and events.

School begins Monday August 14th, 2023 at 8:00am.  Our primary gates are Gate #2 on Harbor Street and Gate #6 on Commerce Way.  Our Special Education students will use Gate #7 on Commerce Way.  We have new school hours, from 8:00am to 2:05pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.  Wednesday is our new Minimum Day and students are dismissed at 12:55pm.  Attendance will be taken daily and your child is expected to be at school on time to engage in daily learning activities.  

We’d like to invite you to visit our school website at https://montebello-rpe.edlioschool.com/ for more information on all our campus events and activities.  In addition, we are also on social media: Instagram (rps_ram_news), Twitter (@rps_ram_news) and on Facebook (Rosewood Park School PreK-8). 

We encourage all our families to use our student and parent information system ‘PowerSchool’. You will receive instructions and a unique code on how to create a PowerSchool Parent Portal, where you can see your students grades, attendance, school announcements, communicate with your students' teacher and much more. Once you create the Parent Portal please verify that the information listed there is correct including your email and phone number to ensure we can effectively communicate with you.  Also, students will create their own PowerSchool Student Portal to view their assignments and grades. 

Our students will be collecting their books and materials from their teachers.   We encourage all our families to come to our REGISTRATION DAYS on either Monday, August 7th or Tuesday, August 8th, 2023.  Our 6th Grade Orientation for new students is on Tuesday, August 8th at 8:30am in our school cafeteria.  Please see attached information packet for additional details. 

We look forward to developing a partnership with you which will make the biggest difference in your students’ learning! Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to a successful school year.   

Best Regards,

Mrs. Garcia
