Letter From the Principal

Rose Ferrero Elementary School

August 10, 2022

Dear Parents of Rose Ferrero Students,

Once again, I want to take this opportunity to welcome each and every one of you to what will be an exciting school year here at Rose Ferrero! This will be my seventh year as principal at Rose, 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. As I write this, 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 had the highest percentage of students scoring AT or ABOVE grade-level in English Language Arts and Math. I could not be 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 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 your child’s education is more important than ever to the academic success of all our students. I encourage you to become an active participant by encouraging your child to attend school regularly, stay focused on his/her teacher’s instruction, and to hand in all assignments to the best of his/her ability. In addition, I invite you to join our School Site Council, our English Language Advisory Committee, and attend as many school-related events as possible. 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. Therefore, we publish, via ParentSquare, the “Bobcat Bulletin” every Tuesday to keep you up to date with school activities, important dates, and parental tips for student success. In addition, please 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.
