Penguin Patch is Here

Our PTO will be running the Penguin Patch from December 15-19.  It's a great opportunity for students to do some holiday shopping.  The students really love selecting gifts for family members!

We need three volunteers for each shift Monday-Friday from 8-10:20 and 11:45-2:45. If you know of any parents/grandparents/guardians who would enjoy helping us out, please email

Family Resource

Welcome to the Rosenwald-Dunbar Elementary Family Resource Center! My name is Emily Andrews and I am Rosenwald’s FRC Coordinator. Our main goal and purpose here at the FRC is to help you and your family remove any barriers or obstacles along the academic journey. We offer an array of services, including (but not limited to) a clothing closet, school supplies, connections to community resources for food, clothing, housing and utility assistance, and family nights to help connect and strengthen your family! If you ever have questions, concerns, or suggestions on how we can serve you, please feel free to stop by and see me (see the secretary for my location in the building). Or you can send me an email at

I look forward to meeting and serving the amazing families at Rosenwald-Dunbar Elementary School!
