Rosemont does not award credits for courses taken at Options for Youth during the summer months. Students who choose to take credit recovery outside of Rosemont over the summer must attend either Capitol City or Accelerated Academy. Please contact your student’s counselor if you have any questions about summer school.

Just another reminder to our families that there is no public parking below the stadium. That parking is limited to coaches and officials. Cars parked in that area are subject to tow. If you attend a sporting event, you must park in the east parking lot next to the Auditorium.

I am proud to announce a Rosemont first: Senior Christine Daniels was accepted to Harvard. She was also accepted into 12 other universities including Pepperdine, USC, and UC Berkeley, but this is the first time that a Rosemont student has gained entrance to this prestigious college. Congratulations to Christine!!! We are so proud of her!

The paintings and drawings in the A-building hallway near my office are part of a collection created by Rosemont Senior, Emily Converse. Concerned about the cost of supplies for the visual art classes, she donated these pieces to be sold as a fundraiser for the visual arts here at Rosemont. They represent an enormous amount of time and commitment. These and other pieces will be sold at the Essence of Rosemont, with all monies to be used for materials. Thanks to Emily for her efforts and to everyone who supports the arts at Rosemont.

A HUGE thank you to Becky Hypolite, who planned the most extravagant Junior Prom, or any dance, in Rosemont’s history! Following an Old Hollywood theme, she provided everything from a Hollywood Sign, walk of fame, red carpet with paparazzi, a chandelier that covered the top of the gym, a life-size Oscar statue, palm trees, and faculty “greeters” in suits and white gloves. Becky worked for months preparing for this event, and she and her parent volunteers put on quite a show. As our Boosters President, she continues to outdo herself in both fundraising and providing students with awesome activities. Thanks, Becky. You’re one in a million.

Rosemont attended the Santa Clara Debate Invitational this weekend. Maya Peters and Azana Ford took second place in open policy. Congratulations, also, to Kaylee Silber, Tyrell Henderson, Jessica Plants and J’cyn Crawley for a great tournament. As always, thanks to coaches Chris Nelson and Mark Hernandez. A huge “Thank you” to Tia Summers who went to the tournament to chaperone!!!!

Softball continued their tear through league play with two huge wins. The Lady Wolverines beat rival Cordova 15-1 and traveled to El Dorado HS where they won 19-4!! We host Liberty Ranch on Monday in a battle of #1 versus #2 in league. Our boys baseball team pulled off an epic home comeback on Wednesday versus Cordova. We scored three runs in the 4th and added four more in the 6th to take the lead. Cordova retook the lead in the 7th, but our boys fought back and scored two in the bottom of the 7th to win in walk-off fashion!

Track and field went up the hill to El Dorado HS this past week for their second league competition. The women’s team showed a great effort, but ultimately were overcome by El Dorado’s numbers in the competition. The men’s side fought a hard battle, but ultimately lost by six points in the matchup. Over the weekend, Jaylen Ward ran a season best in the 100m dash at the prestigious Stanford Invitational. The team will take the week off from competition and will get back to action over Spring Break at the Jesuit Spring Classic.
