Weekly Update 2/16:

Dear Rowe Families,
We are noticing an uptick in many students arriving late to their classes.  Please help us encourage our students to be in class on time and ready to learn. If a student is late without a pass, they will be receiving a referral. 

The PTA is looking for more parents to join. There are many opportunities and ways to be involved in our Rowe Community, depending on your interests.  As the former Rowe PTA President, this a great way to get involved in your child's education and become involved. Please join and become a member by signing up here.

If you haven't please complete the Youth Truth Family Survey here. This is an opportunity for you to share your voice about your child's school. We use this information guide our work for the upcoming school year. 

Next Friday, please join me in the library at 3:15pm for a principal coffee chat.  This is your opportunity to ask questions, find ways to be involved and meet other parents. 

Have a wonderful three day weekend and see you all on Tuesday 2/20.

Emily Moore
Principal 

Weekly Update 2/5:

Dear Rowe Families,


And with that we bring the 2023-2024 Semester 1 to an end. I appreciate all of your support during this first semester together. I have learned so much from so many of you and your children and everyday love this job more and more. 

This is a great opportunity to talk to your child about something they are proud of in this first semester, something they want to change or work on for the second semester and what is a goal that they feel they can set and achieve in the first few weeks (making sure all work is turned in on time,  getting to class on time, staying in class, completing daily Lexia and Dreambox minutes, read a genre that they have never read before, the list is endless).

As we begin semester 2 and the weather has been much warmer lately, we have seen an uptick in planned fights with our students.  Students are planning to fight each other, as friends and record it. I want to remind everyone in our community that fighting, recording fights and being a by stander vs an up stander is absolutely not tolerated.  Students who participate in this (at any level) will have this treated as a school fight.  Please talk to your child about this behavior and help us discourage this from the SAFE, CALM and PREDICTABLE culture and environment we are creating here at Rowe.

A few reminders to go over with your child as we embark on a new semester. 
1. Attendance matters - please help us get your child to school on time
2. Staying in class and being in class is important - skipping is not an option
3. Help your child stay on top of their assignments by checking ParentVue and their google classroom and reminding them of missing work
4. Have your child advocate to staff if a problem arises right away
5. Electronics off and away all day

Once again I appreciate this community and our partnership we are creating.
Have a wonderful weekend.

We’d like your feedback!  

Please take the Rowe Youth Truth Family Survey 

Dear Parent or Guardian,

I am writing to ask for 15-20 minutes of your time to complete an online survey that will help us improve your child’s school. We have asked YouthTruth – a nonprofit organization that supports hundreds of schools and districts across the county – to conduct an anonymous survey on our behalf.

Please take the survey before it closes at midnight on February 23rd, 2024 by clicking this link:  ytsurvey.org/nclackfamily24

Please note:

  • The survey needs to be completed in one sitting.

  • We ask that one member of each household fill out the survey.

  • If you have more than one child who attends the same school, you may respond to the survey multiple times - one time per child.

  • If you write any comments, please do not include your name or anything else that might identify you. Your responses are anonymous, and they will be combined with the responses of other parents and guardians before being shared back with school and district leadership.

We sincerely thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. Your response is incredibly valuable to us.If you have any questions about the survey, or our plans for how we will use your feedback, please contact Jose Silva.

Sincerely,
Jose Silva 

Assistant Principal | Rowe Middle School | Phone- 503-353-5725 | Email- silvajo@nclack.k12.or.us

Knowing and following guidelines for student behavior. 5. Working hard to do their best in class and with school work. 6. Learn and resolve conflict in positive ways. 7. Showing respect for and cooperating with other students and adults. 8. Engage and be a positive member of the learning community. 9. Treat others with respect and dignity. 10.  Students need to come to school with their computer charged or bring their charger to school.

Cell phones: Cell phones are expected to be turned off and put away from the time they enter the doors of the school until the bell rings at the end of the day (9:15am - 4:05pm).  If cell phones or earbuds are visible they will be confiscated.  After the 3rd time a family member will need to come pick up the phone or ear buds at school in the main office. If you need to contact your child, please do so through the front office. 

Outside items: Rowe does not allow stuffies, sports equipment (we provide recess equipment) toys, personal electronics, fidgets etc…  If a student comes to school with outside belongings these items will be kept in the main office until the end of the day. We are trying to cut down on distractions to the learning environment.

District dress code from district: 

Responsibility for dress and grooming rests primarily with students and their parents; however, the district expects student dress and grooming to meet standards which ensure that either of the following conditions do not exist: Disruption or interference with the classroom learning environment , threat to the health and/or safety of the student concerned or of other student.

Attendance:

Tardies, and skipping can result in lunch detention. Chronic tardiness or skipping can lead to in school suspension.  Refusal to go to class will result in either: lunch detention, in school suspension, or if chronic and not listening to administration the student may serve out of school suspension. Students cannot leave the classroom the first 10 minutes and the last 10 minutes of each class.  The first and last 10 have critical information that students need to be successful in the classroom. 

Afterschool:

Due to liability, once the school day has ended, students need to either leave campus or register for the Boys and Girls Club after school program.   ROWE educators have left the building and this leaves a lack of supervision due to this, all students not in the after school program must leave the premises.

Harassment and Bullying:

Physically harming a student or damaging a student’s property. 

Knowingly placing a student in reasonable fear of physical harm to the student or damage to the student’s property. 

Creating a hostile educational environment, including interfering with the psychological well-being of the student, and may be based on but not limited to the protected class of the person.
“Protected class” means a group of persons distinguished, or perceived to be distinguished by race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, marital status, familial status, source of income or disability.

Words or symbols that are racially harassing are prohibited within our school environment. Prohibited symbols include, and are not limited to, the image of a noose, a Neo-Nazi swastika or the Confederate flag. Displaying racially harassing symbols to other students or staff, or where they can be viewed, such as on a bumper sticker on your car in the school parking lot, regardless of intent is disruptive to the education of other students and will not be tolerated.
