Last Friday, Rosemont Middle School's California Junior Scholarship Foundation [CJSF] and Builder's Club met to announce their upcoming Jambo jog/walk-a-thon fundraiser to raise money and awareness of the plight of girls in Kenya, Africa. The event will be on March 30, after school from 3:15 to 4:30. The school will be sponsoring nine African girls, helping them achieve a higher education. "This [the idea of a Rosemont fundraiser] started when I visited Africa," said teacher Shannon Estrada.

Rosemont parents got an education from their children during Wednesday night?s Open House. ?You see this is what I have to do everyday,? said a student as he rushed his mom from classroom to classroom. The night was a chance for parents to learn what their children have been doing over the past school year. ?Come in and play,? invited science teacher Joanne D?Abusco. Her room was like a Disneyland of science. Visitors could learn of centrifugal force and perpetual motion or get a jolt of static electricity.

This is in response to the May 1 article, "These kids should not be afraid to be at school," by Tim Willert, about bullying at Rosemont, where I am an eighth-grader. While I agree that bullying is an issue at our school, I believe that your article presented an unfair and over-exaggerated view of the situation. The part of your article that suggests our administrators do not take action about certain incidents that happen on campus is entirely off the mark.

A flock of Wilson Middle School students snapped their hands into plastic gloves during lunch on Wednesday and set out across campus to gather up what some might dismiss as mere trash. They carried boxes and bags of plastic bottles and aluminum cans from around school to a trio of dumpsters, and went to work sorting through the recyclables and tossing them into the appropriate containers. “It’s tough but we’re having fun,” said Oscar Guerrero, 13, about the manual labor.

Re the Gary Moskowitz article "Rosemont receives 'underperforming' rating": While the article explains the measures being taken at Rosemont Middle School in response to an "underperforming" rating for special education students, the headline is inflammatory and misleading. It is too easy to conclude that the entire school is "underperforming." Mr. Moskowitz fails to mention that Rosemont is a State Distinguished School, and based on 2003 testing, is ranked in the top 10% of all California schools and received a rating of 10 (highest ranking)

The seventh graders took an early lead in all competitions but in the end, with only minutes left of the last games, the eighth graders scored more points and won the year.

High atop a hill in La Crescenta, filled with white sage, California sagebrush and wild cucumber, a plot of land serves not only to allow native plants to flourish, but also to educate local children about the nature that surrounds them. Small groups of third-graders work with volunteer docents at the Rosemont Preserve to explore the native plant and animal life, work passed down from generation to generation. “These are kids that have grown up in the community and are giving these other kids this opportunity,” said Erin Atwater, a member of the Friends of the Rosemont Preserve's committee.

Volunteers got their hands dirty Saturday to prevent dozens of invasive plants from overtaking portions of the Rosemont Preserve, which the community helped procure through donations. The morning cleanup was the first habitat restoration session for the crew, which began about 10 a.m. and focused on eliminating the poisonous Castor bean plant and the vigorous Arundo plant in the nearly 8-acre open space at Rosemont Avenue. “As new owners of this land and as a land stewardship conservancy, our goal is provide habitat value, to restore the area to the proper ecological balance and to use that to educate people to bring the community in and to build a community around the things that should be here,” said Roger Klemm, a native-plant expert who volunteered to clean up the space.

Officials at a local land trust said they are moving to close escrow on a 7.75-acre property in La Crescenta, dubbed the Rosemont Preserve, after community members closed a $40,000 fundraising gap that was preventing the purchase of the property. The Arroyos and Foothills Conservancy received multiple calls from prospective contributors after news of the shortfall and looming deadline became public earlier this month, said Executive Director John Howell. “I am swept off my feet by the generosity that was shown to this effort in a three-day period,” Howell said.
