Almost 500 Rosemont students had 97% attendance for the first semester!! We need many more of our students to attend school at least 95% of the time. PLEASE make sure that your student understands the value of good attendance and comes to school every day, unless they are seriously ill or experience a true emergency situation. We miss our students when they aren’t here, and they fall behind very quickly. Reach out if you would like any support to improve your child’s attendance. We’re here to help.

Juniors take the SAT Wednesday, March 6th. Please make sure that juniors are well-rested and eat a healthy breakfast the morning of the test. These scores are used for college placement, so it’s extremely important that students give 100% effort. Please encourage your student to do his or her personal best!

The Pennies for Patients fundraising campaign ends this Friday, March 8th. The 4th period class that raises the highest amount will win an ice cream sundae party.

Attention parents and guardians: Yearbook sales END on March 15. If your student wants a yearbook this year, a down payment of at least $20 must be made before March 15. If you do not reserve a book before this date, your student will not be guaranteed a yearbook this year. Books cost $80 or $75 with ASB. If any additional copies are available in June, they will cost $100. You can pay with cash or card in Ms. Moua’s office or visit and use code 5520119

Congratulations to senior D’Angelo Smalley, who applied for and was accepted to join the Sacramento chapter of the MBK (My Brother’s Keeper) program, which was started by Barack Obama in 2014. D’Angelo was one of only 15 young men chosen from the Sacramento area to take part in a series of conference opportunities, including a three-day conference in Oakland, where he met Barack Obama, Keisha Lance Bottoms (Mayor of Atlanta), Richard Sherman from the San Francisco 49ers, Victor Cruz from the New York Giants, Stephen Curry, Children’s book author Jered Greene, Michael B. Jordan, Ryan Coogler (film maker – Black Panther) and a host of African American entrepreneurs. John Legend interviewed the mother of Trayvon Martin and two other women and then performed.
