Music and Learning

4th graders in Mr. McCaulley's Science Class worked collaboratively to create this song about light using the Garage Band app. They incorporated ELA, Music, and Science knowledge to display what they have learned during their unit on light.

On August 31, 1964 Rosewood Elementary School was one of many schools across the state of South Carolina that opened its doors to African American students. Robert and Andrew Fruster, Eugene and Cynthia  Turnipseed, and Beverly Ann, Evelyn, and Pamela Cleveland were the first African American students to attend Rosewood Elementary School.  That day, 50 years ago, meant the end of segregation at Rosewood Elementary School and  the beginning of togetherness - everyone working and learning together.

Congratulations to

From the Principal

Welcome to Rosewood Elementary - a neighborhood school committed
to the children of our community for eighty-nine years. As we begin
the upcoming school year, we look forward to an exciting year of
learning for all of our students. Working together, our dedicated
faculty and staff, enthusiastic students, and involved parents and
community members will continue to make Rosewood a special and
unique learning environment. Parents and the community are valuable resources to the children and faculty of Rosewood Elementary. Working together with our parents and the community, we are committed to providing our students a safe, caring, academically challenging and diverse learning environment that will develop productive citizens for a changing world. I encourage each of you to be involved in your child’s education and be a partner with us in your child’s education. Please contact us if you ever have a question or concern so that we may work together for the benefit of our students.

While each school year brings new and exciting challenges,
experiences, and expectations, we look forward to the opportunity
to teach our students and share their successes as they learn and
grow. This year we are excited about new technology opportunities for our students to include new video equipment for student broadcasts and 20 ipads. A great year is in store for us at Rosewood Elementary!
