Rosemary Elementary School

Local Focus on California History

Studying California history is part of the fourth grade social science curriculum, but students often do not realize how close to home those historic facts are.

During a City of Campbell dedication event at John D. Morgan Park, students from Rosemary and Capri schools sat on what would have been the front lawn of Sabatian Peralta's adobe and heard what life was like for the family's children and parents. The event also featured traditional Mexican dancing, characters in turn-of-the-century costumes, and recreational activities for the students.
