Here is some awesome school news!

  • Debate: This week was the NCFL (Northern Catholic Forensic League) Qualifier Tournament at Rosemont. The team of Hector Hernandez and Rebecca (Haddy) Peacock won in the novice division! The team of Jayden Watts and Kaitlin Raymond were in the top 4 of the advanced division, so they now qualify for the National Tournament later in the spring!  A special thanks to both Savion Battle and Dylan Kincaid for helping Mr. Nelson and Mr. Hernandez throughout the tournament. Savion helped out throughout the tournament, even stepping in to help during a medical emergency with a visiting debater. Dylan helped Mr. Nelson by checking every classroom on Sunday, making sure that desks were put back in place and white boards had been erased. Mr. Nelson communicated that he could not have run the tournament without the assistance of these two outstanding Wolverines.
  • Rosemont Orchestra students performed at McClatchy High School Saturday evening as part of the SCUSD Honor Orchestra. The concert required a quick turnaround to prepare, as they started working on the honor orchestra music immediately after the winter concert last month. Their hard work helped the district present a great product on stage.
  • This week in sports our boys basketball team lost two tough games. Our girls split their two contests, winning at home against Liberty Ranch.  Meanwhile in Wrestling our team dominated their dual against Galt HS 56-21.  Go Big Blue!
  • A reminder that the baseball team is holding a fundraiser Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, Feb 13th, from 7 – 10 a.m. Tickets are $5. The breakfast will include raffles and apparel booths.
