Happy New Year!

Greetings from Rosemary School!  We hope you have had an active and enjoyable summer filled with many opportunities to learn and grow. In the 2017-18 school year Rosemary will be joining a national network of schools called EL EducationEL Education is a 25 year-old organization that grew out of a partnership between Outward Bound USA and the Harvard Graduate School of Education.  EL Education schools are bound together by an expanded understanding of student achievement that prioritizes not only mastery of grade-level skills and knowledge, but that puts equal importance on the development each student's character - challenging every child to develop into model citizens in our community. We are very excited about what this powerful model for great schools will bring Rosemary students.  

In the second week of August you will receive an important packet of information from the school.  Please read it all very carefully.  Of particular importance is the yellow Emergency Contact Form.  We MUST have this form on file for every student so that our office staff can contact parents.

School begins promptly at 8:05.  Breakfast is available beginning at 7:30 a.m.  Students who do not eat breakfast are welcome at 7:45 a.m. 

We will NOT post class lists.  Class assignments will be available in the office according to this schedule.  BRING THE COMPLETED  YELLOW PARENT/STUDENT INFORMATION CARD AT YOUR APPOINTED TIME.

Rosemary Joins Acclaimed Network of Schools

Rosemary School has been selected as one of only four schools in the country to enter into an affiliate relationship with the EL Education network of schools this year.   EL Education is a 25 year old organization that grew out of a partnership between Outward Bound USA and the Harvard Graduate School of Education.  EL Education schools are bound together by an expanded understanding of student achievement that prioritizes not only mastery of grade-level skills and knowledge, but that puts equal importance on the development each student's character -  challenging every child to develop into model citizens in our community. Students at EL Education schools demonstrate craftsmanship by creating work that is accurate and beautiful in conception and execution.  Over the next few years Rosemary staff will be receiving extensive professional development in a set of research based core practices that will guide our school transformation.  For more information, check out https://eleducation.org/what-we-offer/our-approach.

What’s for Lunch in Summer?

Free summer meals for eligible children

For some children and teens, summer can mean an unwanted vacation from the regular meals they received at school. Fortunately, children in Santa Clara County, ages 18 and younger, can receive free meals during the summer at multiple locations.

Various programs are in place throughout the county to help children, who rely on free or reduced-price school meals, to receive meals when school is out.

Two Campbell Union School District schools will serve meals beginning June 26 and ending July 14.

  • Rosemary Elementary School, located at 401 W. Hamilton Ave., will serve a lunch/brunch from 12:30 to 1 p.m. M
  • Sherman Oaks Elementary, located at 1800 Fruitdale Ave., will serve brunch from 10:30 to 11 a.m.

Children in Campbell also can go to:

  • Del Mar High School will serve free meals during the summer to anyone under age 18. Breakfast is from 9:10 to 9:20 a.m. and lunch from 11:00-11:10 a.m. There will be no meals served July 3-4.
  • The Health Trust, 2105 Bascom Ave., and
  • The Jewish Family Service of Silicon Valley, 14855 Oka Road Suite 202 in Los Gatos.

There are many more locations in Santa Clara County. Families can find a meal site in their area through web searches for USDA Summer Food and the Hunger Hotline, or by phoning the National Hunger Hotline at: 1-866-3HUNGRY (1-866-348-6479) or 1-877-8HAMBRE (1-877-842-6273).
