Infinite Campus will be down from 3:00 pm on Thursday, March 29th thru Sunday, April 1st 8:00 pm., so we are sending the Messenger home early this week.

Recently, we experienced a hate crime here on campus in the form of vandalism to school property. This kind of incident is shocking and disturbing. This is an opportunity to remind all families that we will not tolerate any behavior that includes any elements of racial intolerance. This includes speech and actions. Our priority is safety for all students and staff, and we will take necessary steps to ensure that everyone here at Rosemont receives the respect that they deserve.

Boosters meets on Tuesday, April 3rd at 5:00 pm in the Cafeteria.

It’s that time again! Essence of Rosemont is an annual community event for the entire family featuring student performances, demonstrations, exhibits, club booths, activities for young children, food and entertainment, and music from our own faculty blues band!! This event takes place on Thursday, April 5th from 5 – 8 p.m. This year, we have added an Open House format between 6 and 7 p.m. Families have the opportunity to visit classrooms to see showcases of student work and talk with teachers. Please join us for this time-honored tradition!

A reminder that this Friday, April 6th is the end of the 3rd quarter and also a shortened day. Students are released at 12:06 p.m.

Spring testing is here. Seniors take the CAST science test this week. All juniors take the SAT on Tuesday, April 10th. Beginning the week of April 16th, Juniors also take the CAASPP in English and math. During CAASPP testing, all students will follow a modified block schedule on certain days. We will provide specific days and times before testing begins. Test results are extremely important as an indicator of college readiness and are also part of college acceptance criteria. Although we don’t want to place undue stress on our students, they need to know that the tests are important and that they should do whatever they can to prepare. Being well-rested and well-nourished, especially on testing days, can maximize their ability to show what they know.

Now for some good news…

March 20 was the CREATE Mentoring Program banquet. Our students won scholarships!!! Mehak Walia ($500), Alycia Fenes ($1,200), Renata Kovalchuk (Outstanding Senior and $1,600), and Jessica Salazar (full scholarship to the Summer Academy). This was only their first year!

The purpose of the CREATE Mentoring Program is to educate and inspire high school students to pursue career pathways which create the built environment. It is a collaborative effort that brings many construction industry professionals, educational institutions, and the local community together to expose students to architecture, construction, and building trades. Students are exposed to various pathways upon graduation as well as sparking their interests in the various occupations/careers.
