CAASPP testing for juniors continues this week. All students follow a block schedule on Tuesday and Wednesday. On Tuesday, all students attend their 1st, 3rd, and 5th period classes. On Wednesday, they attend their 2nd, 4th, and 6th period classes. School ends at 2:57, as usual, each day.

Thanks for your patience as the district has worked out the details for summer school. At the high school level, there are several programs:

Incoming 9th grade students who have been identified as “significantly off-track” according to grades and need intervention in English Language Arts and Math. This session runs from June 18th thru July 19th.  Monday – Thursday + one Friday (July 6th) Breakfast is served from 8 – 8:30 and classes are over at 11:45.

Current 9th – 12th graders who are between 5 and 10 credits away from being on track for meeting A-G requirements or meeting Graduation requirements. These students may be enrolled in online credit recovery or in actual classes. There are two blocks – one from 8:30 – 11:30, and one from 12 - 3. Semester 1 is June 18 – July 3rd and Semester 2 is July 5 – 19.

For both of these programs, students will automatically be enrolled, and parents will have to “opt-out” through a form in Infinite Campus. Letters will be mailed the week of April 30th thru May 4th.

Summer of Service – This program runs from 8:30 2:00. Identified students take English and Math intervention until 11:45 and engage in community-based projects from 12:30 – 2. Non-identified incoming 9th graders and returning 10th - 12th graders take the normal SOS program.

There is also an enrichment program for incoming 10th – 12th graders who are already on-track for A-G or Graduation and want enrichment. This will involve blended learning – online and with an in-person teacher. Exact course availability is to be determined. This program is opt-in. Information about this program will be coming from the district.

Now for lots of good news…

Kudos to Ms. Antrim and the drama students for their amazing production of The Music Man. It was remarkable. Special thanks to Melissa Gonzales, Jenn Wilson, and Jim DeHart, all amazing parent supporters for drama!!!

Thanks so much to Ms. Summers for supporting her Media Production students as they prepared for the SEVA (Sacramento Education Video Awards) competition! Congratulations to Renata Kovalchuk, Andy Nguyen, William Subin and Shanice Soh who received the award for Best Instructional Video for grades 9-12. Their film “How to Be a Good Student” competed against over 400 student-produced videos. The film was recognized for its creativity, humor, and innovative editing style. In addition, Tichele Sanders’ film titled “Dedication” was also considered for a finalist position! Students were recognized at the SEVAs which were held at Sac State on April 15th.

Rosemont’s Wind Ensemble received unanimous superior ratings at the Golden Empire Festival at CSUS on Saturday! We believe that this is a Rosemont first! Congratulations to Mr. Neff and all of his musicians for this incredible accomplishment!

Congratulations to Johnny Luna, Jasmine Fontana, Kateryna Gupalo, and Trinity Dorsey for being selected to represent Rosemont High School at the Freedoms Foundation Youth Leadership Summit in Philadelphia this year.  The four of them are part of a group of 50 students selected from the Greater Sacramento area for this honor.  Johnny and Kateryna completed their trip in March and Jasmine and Trinity will be heading to Philadelphia this week.  This is a great opportunity for these students so please congratulate them if you have them!

The tennis season is quickly coming to a close. As of Friday, April 20, Wolverines Tennis ended its regular season with a hard loss to El Dorado High School, a match played as a continuation from a rain out. However, the team was still able to close out the season as League Champs once again finishing at 9-1. It has been a very exciting season. At the moment, we do not have any notifications of individual honors from the league but we are happy to say our players were awesome. Matches played by Jefferson Mauricio, a senior, were very rewarding to watch. He pulled out some of the toughest wins coming from behind. This was followed by Brian Mao, whose resilience was remarkable. On the Girls side was Destiny Fines, another senior who kept us in the running. Our nail biters were put at ease with the consistent play at mixed doubles featuring two great kids, Sabrina Saypanya and Antonio DePrada-Scorcio. When the score was 4 to 4, their hard-fought matches put us over the top. To these two we are very grateful. This week we are beginning League playoff championships on Tuesday and Wednesday at Broadstone Racquet Club. Go Wolverines!

Congratulations to the Rosemont track team for their dominant wins over Cordova and Union Mine this week. They led with outstanding performances by David Lyubezhanin, Carlo Chacon, Jalen Ward, Ethan Belnap, Luke Warden, Calee Reid, Malik Peterson, and Diana Mensah. They are now 3-0 this season. The final home meet is Wednesday, May 2nd.

Softball had another impressive week as well!  Huge wins against Liberty Ranch and Cordova put them at 10-1 in league play and tied for 1st with Liberty Ranch. With 4 more league games, our lady Wolverines are in prime position for a league title!

Finally, thanks so much again to Becky Hypolite for her amazing decorations and food at Junior Prom. It was spectacular! She and a handful of folks including her sister, Dollie Ramirez, Shalene Walker, Mr. Gosney and some awesome ASB students put in a ton of work to make it a special evening for the students.
