Panther Pit Stop

Rosewood PTA has a small store in the front office that offers Student and Adult School Spirit Shirts, sweatshirts, car magnets, license plates. We also office student supplies and small items for sale. During the Holidays, we will have items to purchase for small gifts for Moms, Dads, and friends. Jennifer Manor heads up the school store and has really been great at organizing fun things for the kids to purchase.
The Panther Pit Stop is open: Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 8:15am – 9:00am.

Rosewood Closet

The PTA has a Rosewood Closet of gently worn uniforms to purchase for minimal cost. We are always accepting donations of uniform clothing during the school year. Donations can be dropped off in the front office bin anytime. The Rosewood Closet is located by back the Art Room and is open on Tuesday and Thursday mornings before school 8:15 – 9:15am. 

Box Tops / Campbell Soup Labels / Tyson Chicken Labels

Our school is collecting these labels from various products to help us raise money for our classrooms. Last year we earned over $1500 for our school and we hope to do better this year. We are running contests between the students and classrooms for incentives for collecting these labels. All monies collected from these programs go directly back into the classrooms for supplies or equipment needed. Bonnie Reamy heads up this program and has done an awesome job!

Volunteer Hours

Parents are required to complete 10 hours of volunteering at our school each year. There are many ways that parents can complete their volunteer hours. The volunteer coordinator is Mrs. Jennifer Norris, Assistant Principal. Contact her if you’re interested in volunteering at 564-3840. Volunteers must check in and check out with the front office and record their volunteer hours in the notebook in the front office.
