Rosewood Closet
*The PTA Closet is currently open by appointment only due to COVID-19 visitor restrictions. Please call Guidance Counselor Melissa Wiles 772-564-3862 to make an appointment.

The PTA has a Rosewood Closet of gently worn uniforms to purchase for minimal cost. We are always accepting donations of uniform clothing during the school year. Donations can be dropped off in the front office bin anytime. We currently need boys clothing and small sizes of girls and boys shorts. The Rosewood Closet is located in the back of the cafeteria.

Box Tops

Our PTA can earn money every time you shop and scan! Download the Box Tops app, connect to Rosewood, and scan your receipts! Any items eligible for Box Tops will be directly applied to our school. If you shop for groceries online simply forward your receipt to [email protected]. All monies collected from these programs go directly back into funds for supplies or equipment needed for teachers/students.

Volunteer Hours
*Mandatory volunteer hours are currently waived due to COVID-19 visitor restrictions.

Parents are typically required to complete 10 hours of volunteering at our magnet school each year. There are many ways that parents can complete their volunteer hours even with COVID restrictions by volunteering with the PTA.

When standard volunteer procedures return, you can contact volunteer coordinator Mrs. Jennifer Norris, Assistant Principal. Contact her if you're interested in volunteering at 564-3840. Volunteers must check in and check out with the front office and record their volunteer hours in the notebook in the front office.
