The e-tree is a low-traffic Google Group through which the Rosa Parks PTA sends out important school-related announcements.  The list is used only to send out important announcements from the PTA and other school officials.  It is not a discussion group.  Messages are sent out in both English and Spanish.

School Newsletter

The Principal's Newsletter is sent home in your child's Wednesday envelope every two weeks and is also sent electronically via the e-tree.


Automatic phone calls are sent out to parents' home phone numbers with reminders or announcements. The phone calls are sent by the BUSD or by the Principal. To have an automatic call sent out, contact Alicia Barajas, the School Secretary, two days prior to the call.

Wednesday Envelopes

WHY: The primary method Rosa Parks uses to send home printed material is through the “Wednesday envelope.” This sturdy envelope is used throughout the school year and is sent home with every child each Wednesday. Parents/caregivers should check with their child each Wednesday to see what is inside.

WHAT:  Only non-commercial, Rosa Parks-related material may be sent home.  If there is a question about whether your flyer is appropriate to send home, please clear it with Principal Furlan first.

HOW: Put the right number of flyers in each teacher’s box and they will make sure the flyers get into the Wednesday envelopes.  Feel free to put a cover note to the teacher explaining what the flyer is and thanking them for including it.  If you want them to announce the flyer to their students, mention this in the cover note.

You are welcome to use the Rosa Parks copier for PTA-related flyers, but please avoid peak hours (8:30-9AM or 11AM-1PM).  You must use your own paper.  If it is a PTA flyer, you can use the PTA paper (and paper clips), which are on the marked PTA.

Anything sent home should be translated into Spanish.

WHEN:  You should aim to have the flyers in the mailboxes as early as possible, but no later than 3pm on Tuesday in order to ensure they go out in the next day’s envelopes.
