Letter From the Principal

Rose Ferrero Elementary School

August 12, 2020

Dear Families,

As I do every year, I want to take this opportunity to welcome each and every one of you to what, I believe, will be the most interesting and unique school year ever here at Rose Ferrero! This will be my fifth year as principal at Rose, and I can assure you that my staff and I are committed to doing whatever it takes to increase your child’s reading, writing, and math levels no matter how this school year plays out. As I have stated in the past, 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, and I can promise you that all of us at Rose Ferrero are committed to making our school the top school in the entire Soledad Unified School District, especially as we start the year with online, distance learning.

As parents, your participation in your child’s education is more important than ever to the success of the students. This year, I encourage you to become an active participant by encouraging your child to log in to his/her class every morning at 8:00 a.m., stay focused on his/her teacher’s instruction, and to hand in all assignments to the best of his/her ability. 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 have always believed that communication is the key to a successful educational experience. This year, the communication from home to school is more important than ever. Please make sure the school always has your current phone number and an email address if you have one. Moreover, always feel free to contact me at 831-678-6480 or [email protected] at any time. Together, I know we can make Rose Ferrero a great place for your child to learn and grow as a scholar.
