Dear Rose Park Friends,

Our corner of the world in West Michigan is exploding with new life and we’re blessed to be in the midst of all this bounty in Creation. When we slow our busyness and join children in viewing our world from their perspective, the intricacies of the mini miracles all around us abound. Children are experts at wondering when they’re gifted with time to wander. I encourage you to wander in creation this spring with your child. Listen to their questions. Absorb their enthusiasm. Notice the world as they see it. Allow God to speak to your heart and to your child’s heart by simply enjoying his presence and each other in the midst of springtime beauty.

“But ask the animals, and they will teach you,
or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you;
or speak to the earth, and it will teach you,
or let the fish in the sea inform you.
Which of all these does not know
that the hand of the LORD has done this?
In his hand is the life of every creature
and the breath of all mankind.”

Job 12: 7-10

Yours in Christ’s service,

Katelyn and Miska


Family Farm Fest THANK YOU

What a gift it is to live in community. This is not always easy. Relationships require work. We continually pray that God would always be placed in the center of our relationships. We commit to a relationship that is marked in truth and in grace. We are so thankful for the dedicated work of our parent team in celebrating our Rose Park community through our Family Farm Fest this spring! This was no small task but what a joyous celebration of our children and of our families! We hope this event will be held annually so keep your ears open for the next Family Farm Fest celebrating YOU and YOUR CHILDREN!

Teacher Appreciation Week

We so much appreciate our amazing Rose Park teachers, and want to celebrate them and all the hard work they do each day for our children! One way to say thanks to them is by remembering that Teacher Appreciation Week May is May 6-10. If you need some ideas for how to celebrate your child’s teacher(s), here is a handy list of our staff’s Favorite Things!

Tulip Time

On Thursday, May 9, our 1st-4th graders will participate in the Tulip Time Kinderparade. We will have a normal school schedule in the morning. Preschoolers will be dismissed at their normal time (11:15am) with no afternoon enrichment. Kindergarten and 5th graders will be dismissed at 11:30am. Students in grades 1-4 will remain at school until we load the buses to head to the parade route. They will eat lunch at school before heading to the parade. There will be no hot lunch.

An information sheet and pick up slip was sent home with your child. Please return this slip to your child’s teacher ASAP. Thank you.

Kindergarten Visit Day

On Friday, May 17, we will be welcoming our newest group of kindergarteners to Rose Park for a visit! The incoming kindergartners and their parents will meet at Rose Park from 9-10am. Families who enrolled should have received an email with more details.

Yearbook Orders

Our 22-23 yearbooks will be distributed the last week of school to those who ordered them last fall during our school picture days. If you would still like to order a yearbook, you may order it through Geskus.

Rose Park Lost & Found

Please take a minute to look our Lost & Found photo album to see if any of these items belong to your student. Feel free to email the office to claim your items and we will make sure to get it in your student’s backpack. Otherwise these items will be donated soon!
