Spring Fling

Hi folks, Jon Wennstrom here! This week marked our 6th Annual Spring Fling. When I first came to Rosedale, the PTA president told me about an idea she had for a new event. She wanted to do something in addition to the traditional ice cream social and she thought with a new principal the time was right. That was the beginning of our "Spring Fling" tradition at our school. I remember that the forecast predicted rain, but we lucked out.  In fact, we have been fortune with the weather each year so far! Each year, the event seems to grow and change a little to reflect the school and it's been wonderful to be a part of it through these years. Traditions are a great thing for a school community and I'm happy to have been a part of a new tradition at the school and to have seen it grow due to the leadership of all our PTA boards. Thanks for letting me be a part of this special tradition!!

MEET THE LPS STAFF
Karen Young - Lead Administrator of Niji-Iro (Japanese Immersion School)

My name is Karen Young and I have been married for 17 years.  I have three girls who attend Cass, Riley, and Holmes Middle School.  I am a proud graduate of Stevenson High School, class of 1994.  I began working for LPS when we opened Niji-Iro in August of 2014.

I challenge my students and staff to have a growth mindset and felt that I needed to have one as well and so I have started my PhD in Curriculum and Instruction and just completed my first year.


Niji-Iro is unique, amazing, Itsumo Egao (Always Positive), diverse, exceptional.

Did you know that the PTA funds most of our field trips? Many of our grade levels take learning trips to outside venues during the last few weeks of school. This allows students to have new experiences and learning opportunities to connect the classroom to the real world. This is made possible from our active PTA sponsorship of trips. Our students and staff are fortunate to have such great partners with the PTA.  Great things are happening at Rosedale!
