Rose Ferrero Elementary School

August 14, 2024

Dear Families,

Once again, I want to take this opportunity to welcome every one of you to what will be another exciting school year here at Rose Ferrero! As most of you know, school begins this coming Wednesday, August 14th, and I can assure you that my staff and I are committed to doing whatever it takes to not only increase your child’s reading, writing, and math levels, but to improve his or her overall school experience as well. Though the “official” numbers from the state tests (the CAASPP) our students took this past spring have not yet been released, I can tell you that of all the elementary schools in Soledad, Rose Ferrero, once again, had the highest percentage of students scoring AT or ABOVE grade-level in English Language Arts & Math. I could not be any more proud of our students and staff for this accomplishment, and I feel it is an honor and a privilege to serve as the principal of such an exemplary and student-centered learning community that is Rose Ferrero Elementary School. I can promise you that all of us at Rose Ferrero are committed to working even harder this coming year to improve on the scores our students earned this past spring and continue the growth and excellence that makes our school great.

As parents, your participation in the school community is very important to the success of the students. I invite you to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering, joining our School Site Counsel, our ELAC, or by attending and supporting school events. Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their child’s education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the child.

I truly believe that communication is the key to a successful educational experience. Therefore, I will be sending home a “Bobcat Bulletin” every Tuesday to keep you up to date with school activities, important dates, and tips for student success. In addition, please feel free to contact me at 831-678-6480 or at any time. Together, I know we can make Rose Ferrero a great place for your child to learn and grow as a scholar.
