Principal's Message

May 2019

​Good afternoon Rosemont Families,
We are certainly on the downhill side of the year and it seems the pace is getting faster and faster. 
There is much to celebrate about our accomplishments in April.  Our students were very successful at their first Calgary Youth Science Fair, grades one and six students became better swimmers, Division II students worked with resident author, Marcello DiCintio, our newly ordered Rosemont merch arrived, and our parents enjoyed learning about how we address conceptual understanding in mathematics.  Meanwhile, every class was engaged in the important work of lifelong learning.
May is off to a great start.  On May 1st, the World Change Club Book Sale raised $275 for the World Wildlife Foundation’s work to support the Canadian gray fox.  They also donated several excellent books to the Calgary Reads Book Sale hosted at the Calgary Curling Club, May 10-12.  Many of our staff and students had their Hats On for Mental Health to support awareness of good mental health.   
Then came May 2nd… What a remarkable experience we had at the ballet!  Field trips provide important opportunities for students to be active citizens and experience curriculum in extraordinary ways.  While away from the school, our students represented themselves, their families, and our school very well.  They demonstrated good theatre etiquette and immersed themselves in a unique experience.  Students gained an understanding of the physical and technical work, along with the commitment, that goes into exceptional performance.  They learned about the work of Order of Canada Companion, Joni Mitchell, along with renowned, classic authors William Yeats and Rudyard Kipling.  Jean Grand-Maître, Alberta Ballet’s Artistic Director, reinforced many of the musical concepts Mrs. Erickson teaches and taught our students some of the biomechanics of human movement. We even learned about the ratio of the number of dancers who audition compared with the number who are hired to dance with Alberta Ballet.  There was lots of discussion about how we learn from our mistakes because when we push our limits, take risks, and try our hardest, sometimes we fall; then we learn and improve.  We addressed specific outcomes of every subject while immersed in the beauty of the arts.  One of the highlights for me was the insightful and well-articulated questions our students asked.  Another highlight was seeing our students so focussed on the performance and listening to their excitement about everything they had seen and learned when we returned to school.  Thank you once again to Enbridge and our Rosemont Fundraising Society for making this spectacular opportunity possible!!
As soon as we got home from the ballet, our grade one students received their Arbor Day trees, then we quickly switched gears and many families enjoyed Hotel Transylvania 3 at Family Movie Night.  Thanks so much to the City of Calgary for the trees and the Rosemont School Council and Fundraising Society for organizing our annual Family Movie Night.
Our May calendar is already very busy and continues to grow.  On Wednesday next week, our grade six students write the first of the Provincial Achievement Tests: the English Language Arts Writing Test.  The remaining tests are scheduled for June 11th – 17th.  All students are busy preparing for the Parent Appreciation Assembly on Wednesday, May 15th at 2:15 p.m.  Mrs. Erickson is collaborating with classroom teachers setting social studies and language arts curriculum content to music while addressing the important work of the music curriculum as well.  The skill and commitment of our teachers and students will be very evident as they show their appreciation for all the ways our parents contribute to our school and demonstrate Strength in Community!  After the assembly, we’ll have cake and punch for the adults while the students return to their classrooms to finish their school day.  Following the long weekend, both the lacrosse residency and Marcello’s work with the Division I students will get underway.  Then, on May 30th, we’ll host our Welcome to Kindergarten evening for our new kindergarten students and their parents.  All these events are recorded in our online Rosemont Calendar.  We update it frequently!
Usually I am able to share our classroom configurations for the next school year in mid-May.  The provincial budget has not yet been received and we have not yet begun determining our fall staffing needs so I may not be able to share that information until much later this month or into June.  In the meantime, knowing which new students will be coming to Rosemont School and which students will be moving away helps us predict our student population accurately and prepare for next year effectively.  If you know your situation will be changing next year and you haven’t yet informed the school, please let us know as soon as possible.
Sincerely,
Allison E.G. Bobenic
Principal, Rosemont School
