Here’s to 2020!

足球比分 New Year’s resolutions prepare us to improve ourselves for the coming year, and this January is extra special, marking the beginning of a fresh decade.

As I reflect on the Roseville City School District’s last 10 years, there has been an undeniable transformation among our community of schools. Since 2010, we’ve added three new schools, broken ground on our 20th school and added an International Baccalaureate (IB) program, Spanish at all four middle schools, and a district-wide music education program, while watching our city grow and our students grow up. One thing that hasn’t changed in 150 years is our District culture of committing to keeping students at the center of every decision that we make.

As we move into the new decade, the next 10 years have big plans in store. In August 2020, we will open Riego Creek Elementary, and Manny Villalpando will serve as our principal. Three more schools are on the horizon in the coming years, along with another IB accreditation, updates in technology, and recruitment of the very best educators for our students.

足球比分 The District is really about our people, like ABC10 Teacher of the Month Ann Janzen of Sargeant. Teachers like Ms. Janzen leave a mark on our District and are the reason for our 150-year track record of excellence in education. It is because of these educators that our District can offer unmatched educational programs, attention to each child’s socio-emotional needs, and opportunities for children to learn outside of the traditional box.

足球比分 The educators we seek for our District must embody our 4 C philosophy. They must demonstrate Character, Commitment, Caring, and Competence. Our District puts considerable thought into our recruitment and selection process to ensure we find that needle-in-a-haystack. Wednesday, January 15, 2020, begins our annual search for these #RCSDChampions at our Recruitment Fair at 1050 Main Street in Roseville. We encourage educators to attend with resumes, and prepare to meet staff from each school site.

I wish for you a 2020 that is filled with excellent health, joyful moments, and a feeling of personal fulfillment.

足球比分 Sincerely,

足球比分 Derk Garcia

足球比分 A New Year and a New Decade is on the Way!

And just like that, we find ourselves at the close of the decade. With 2020 on the horizon, you’d think I’d become nostalgic over the last ten years. You’re not wrong – in fact, I’ve become nostalgic over the last 150 years as we celebrate the District’s sesquicentennial all year long. However, the future looks so bright that I can’t help but keep looking forward to the goals, milestones, and growth at our fingertips.

足球比分 Growing our Minds…But How?

Education is what I am immersed in every day. Each day, I work with educators who are determined to help students reach their potential. We read the data, analyze results and grow from what we learn. What if I told you there is a mindset we can each adopt that helps every single one of us, as parents, community members, and #RCSDChampions?

Back to School!

August is when we all head back to school and begin reminiscing about what did over the several weeks of summer break. I’d like to share what our District did over the summer!

Perhaps most noteworthy, we began summer by breaking ground on our 20th school, Riego Creek, located near Crawford Parkway and Fiddyment Road. We were joined by our board of education trustees, District staff, city council members and our construction team, all of whom took part in shoveling the first mounds of dirt!

Summer fever has hit our house and between movie nights, blasting music and video game tournaments, it can be challenging to really connect (and disconnect!) with my boys. I hear parents lament about this frequently: How do you get your kids to unplug from their devices and focus on the human interaction that helps develop their social skills, emotional intelligence, and kindness? Well, I have a few tricks my up sleeve!

Time to Wrap it Up!

The end of each school year traditionally is a time to reflect over the many goals and milestones we accomplished this year. We usually scratch our heads and think—”Where did the year go!?” While we take a look back, we are also looking forward to new opportunities and ways to grow that will allow us to prepare our students to succeed. I’d like to share with you why I believe why this school year shaped up to be one of the most productive and memorable for me as your superintendent.

It’s one thing to talk the talk, but it’s a whole ‘nother ball game to walk the walk. So, when Roseville City School District says that we pride ourselves on our commitment to excellence in education, we work to put those words into action. Our ultimate goal is to maximize learning for each and every one of our students.  Additionally, we strive for all of our children to be proficient in Common Core State Standards and to progress towards college and career readiness.

Each year, many of us create lists: things we’d like to change, improve or focus on in our lives. 

足球比分 But what about creating a list that takes stock of what we love about our lives and communities? Things that make us who and what we are. This year, I’d like to list a few things I appreciate most about Roseville City School District:

Our staff. They bring their best to the classroom each day, investing time, energy and genuine care into their students. Their commitment to academic excellence raises the bar with each passing year.

A new year signifies a blank slate and an opportunity to start fresh with goals. While most feel a renewed sense of purpose with a new calendar year, those of us in education acknowledge our year really starts with the school year. January is the time when both of those calendars come together. As we welcome 2019, our district is already preparing for the 2019 – 2020 school year. Yes, that’s right! It’s time to enroll new, returning and transferring students.

As we “fall” into a new school year routine and a new season, I am feeling extra thankful to lead a school district full of eager and ready-to-be challenged students and staff. What more could I ask for?

Our families, staff and school board members create a community of schools, making each day a valuable opportunity for our more than 11,000 students to shine. This fall, while I give thanks to the familiar faces I get to work alongside every day, I am pleased to welcome two new school board members who will join our hard-working and dedicated team of RCSD Champions.
