The Rosemead School District has an excellent team of employees who work together to ensure the safety of our students and staff as our #1 priority.
As the long-term Superintendent of the Rosemead School District, I am blessed to work with a wonderfully competent and caring group of professionals.
The Rosemead School District Administrators, Staff and Board of Trustees will continue to reassure you, our parents that your children - our students’ safety will continue to be our #1 priority. We continue to research, explore and implement new technologies to assist with campus security. In addition, our professional development days (pupil free days) have not only been used to increase teacher and staff development in curriculum and instructional strategies; these days have also been used to train staff in disaster and emergency preparedness including active shooter scenarios.
We are all here for the best interest of all "our" children. Next school year, we will continue to launch more staff training in the area of safety and security of our children and campuses.
Thank you to our staff for their countless hours of dedication and support to the Rosemead Community and families. Thank you to our parents and community who support our security measures on campuses with a single point of entry and the fingerprinting and security checks of volunteers.
Below please find urgent communication from Superintendent Dr. Enomoto-Perez:

RECOGNITION TO EMMA W. SHUEY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS AND STAFF BY THE PANDA RESTAURANT GROUP, INC. FOR ITS ACHIEVEMENTS AS A LIGHTHOUSE SCHOOL, THROUGH THE FRANKLIN COVEY PROGRAM
The Panda Restaurant Group, parent company of Panda Express hosted its 10th annual party for local elementary school students on Friday, November 3, 2017, in recognition of their accomplishments as a “Lighthouse School” in Franklin Covey The Leader in Me® program.
This year, Panda chose to acknowledge Emma W. Shuey Elementary School for achieving the “Lighthouse” status within The Leader in Me® program. “Lighthouse recognition comes because of the results a school is achieving and the impact it is having on staff, students, parents, and the greater community. We are very proud of our principal, students and staff at Shuey School,” said Superintendent Dr. Enomoto-Perez. Shuey School is one of only 347 schools worldwide to achieve this status where schools engage in a rigorous multi-year process to demonstrate their commitment to developing qualities within each student and staff.
All four of our elementary schools have now achieved National Lighthouse status thru the Leader in Me® program. Our schools are learning skills that will help them in college, the workforce and life. The Panda Cares generosity supported by co-founders Andrew and Peggy Cherng support the belief that “giving back” makes this a wonderful and better place for all.
The celebration began at 9:00 a.m. at The Panda Restaurant Group headquarters in Rosemead, California, where over 493 students were treated to a catered delicious Panda Express lunch, a carnival created by the Support Center associates and organized through Panda Cares program, along with a fun filled day.
The Panda Restaurant Group is a business partner in the Leader in Me® program. The Panda Charitable Foundation which supports the health and educational needs of underserved children is of great assistance. The Leader in Me® program is a school program that integrates timeless leadership principles with practical character and life skills relevant to today’s challenges. By building self-confidence, interpersonal skills, elevating student achievement and reducing school-wide discipline problems, this program helps children become leaders in their field of interest.
Through The Leader in Me® program, students begin to see themselves in a completely different way. They see that they can make an impact not only on their achievements and progress at school, but also with other people and the community. They take responsibilities for their actions, realize that they are active participants in their learning, set goals and reflect on their progress towards these goals, and initiate and implement community action. As one sixth grade student said, “I used to think that only the smart kids could be leaders, but now I know everyone can be a leader”, shared Principal Brydle.
The support that we have received from Panda Cares over the years is invaluable. Children have one childhood, and it is incumbent on all of us to provide students with experiences and memories that will positively impact them. The Panda Cares Fall Festival will be a memory that the children will cherish for a lifetime, and we are very grateful to Panda Cares for their hard work and dedication to the children of Shuey School.
The Rosemead School District Board and administration are proud to have Shuey students selected and honored during Panda’s annual party. On behalf of Emma W. Shuey Elementary School students and staff, the Rosemead School District thanks The Panda Restaurant Group and Panda Cares for the honor.
