Ocean Week Signups


We need parent help to decorate the school to create an exciting and festive atmosphere the week prior to February 2nd. Please consider helping to make this a fun filled learning experience for our kids.  Any questions, please email Roberta Dean at rdean@rsf.k12.ca.us or call 510-910-0060.



The Ocean Celebration Luncheon takes place on Thursday, Feb. 5th between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. in the teacher’s lounge.  Please consider donating your time and/or funds and food items to provide a wonderful seafood soup and salad themed luncheon for our staff and volunteers.  We will have runners available to pick up food items from 7:30 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. on Feb. 5th so you do not even need to get out of the car.   You may also bring items to the teachers lounge the day before and leave them marked with a post it note.  We request all items to be dropped off by no later than 9:00 a.m. on Thursday morning.


Private School Recommendations

We will be happy to circulate and process your recommendation forms for your private school recommendation. Please complete the student name, grade, parent signature and teacher name portion on each recommendation form. Please download and print the Student Information Sheet to be submitted along with your recommendation forms to Marsha Portugal in the school office.   Upon completion of all recommendation forms by your teachers and administrators we will mail the completed forms along with all requested items directly to the private school. Please plan ahead, as this process may take six weeks or more depending on holiday schedule and quantity of recommendation forms currently processing. Private schools may send you reminders periodically and notify you on your tour that you might have missing paperwork. R. Roger Rowe School will notify the parents by email as soon as their child’s complete packet is sent to their private school selection prior to the deadline date.
