Upcoming Events

Visitor Badge Required

As a matter of safety, anytime you are visiting our school campus we ask you to stop at the school office first to sign in and receive a visitor badge to wear while on campus. This is a matter of safety for our students and staff. You will notice all of our staff will be wearing badges. Thank you for your cooperation in this safety procedure.

Winter Break

As the Winter Break approaches, parents are getting busier planning memorable events with their children. Remember to set time aside to just sit and relax, grab a book and a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy each others company. Our students will begin Winter Break on Friday, December 22th. They can sleep in that morning. We will see them back in class on January 8th, at 8:00 am. 

Rosemary School Joins Exclusive Education Program

Studies show that students in EL Education network schools outperform peers in English-Language Arts and Math

Rosemary Elementary School was one of only four schools in the nation selected this year to join an exclusive affiliate relationship with EL Education network.

Started in 1991, EL Education schools give equal priority to mastering grade-level skills and knowledge, and developing each student's character. Data shows that students in EL Schools outperform their peers in English-Language Arts and Math, and have the highest impact with Low income, Black and Hispanic students.

“We sought the EL Education affiliation in order to join an impressive national network of schools implementing best practices in raising student achievement, “ said Rosemary Principal Brian Schmaedick. “Achievement is more than a mastery of the skills and knowledge standards for each grade level, but of equal importance is the areas of character and the students’ ability to produce truly high quality work.”

As a member of EL Education, Rosemary School’s staff will focus on student excellence in three core areas that allow students to demonstrate proficiency and deeper understanding.

The school is in its first year of a multi-year implementation plan.

“Over the next few years, we will be receiving extensive professional development in a set of research-based core practices that will guide our school transformation,” Schmaedick said. “We’re excited about the opportunity this brings to our students and staff.”

For more information about EL Education, contact Principal Brian Schmaedick or visit the EL Education website.

Take the Breakfast Challenge!

Take the "Breakfast Challenge" at Rosemary School. Arrive at the cafeteria between 7:20 am and 7:45 am to school and have breakfast with us. The challenge will be from Dec 4th to Dec 19th. Each student who comes in for breakfast will receive a ticket each day. The class with the most tickets will receive a free dress day.

Eating breakfast can improve cognitive performance, test scores and achievement scores in students, especially in younger children. According to a study published in the journal “Archives of Pediatrics and

Adolescent Medicine," students who increased their participation in school breakfast programs had significantly higher math scores than students who skipped or rarely ate breakfast. As an added benefit, the group of students who increased breakfast participation also had decreased rates of tardiness and absences.
