Welcome 5th Graders!


Hello parents and students of the Class of 2016! This is going to be an exciting year for our children!

In addition to the letter sent home to families, below is a list of planned events that have been planned for the students, as well as the fundraising activities sponsored by the 5th grade to raise money to support the our grade-wide parties, field trips, after-school events, Class of 2016 T-shirts, yearbook, and much more. Our keys to success will be successful fundraising events and the parent volunteers that make it happen!

We encourage every parent to participate by volunteering with the planned events and fundraising activities! Being mindful that everyone has busy lives, there are many ways for parents to volunteer both behind the scenes and on-site. Please visit this page often for up-to-date information and ongoing volunteer opportunities!

Thank you and we look forward to making this a great year! Please contact us
at jamesjohnson5thgrade@gmail.com with any questions.

Middle School Open Enrollment


Students and parents are encouraged to attend the Middle School Information Meetings in February to learn more about the district's middle schools.

Each of Cherry Hill’s three middle schools—Beck, Carusi, and Rosa International—offers opportunities that will challenge, enrich, and excite your youngsters. Each is led by dynamic administrators and staffed by talented teachers. At each school, staff and students are held to the same high standards — standards that reflect this district’s philosophy that we can be an internationally benchmarked school district in which all students receive a preeminent education.

Since Rosa International reopened as a middle school in 1999, middle school choice has been offered as an alternative to redistricting.

For the 2016-2017 school year, the Open Enrollment period for the Rosa International Middle School is from February 16, 2016 to February 26, 2016.
