How has PTA been helping my child over the summer?
This year, there are quite a few of us Rosemont Board members on both the Rosemont PTA and Council PTA Boards, and so collectively we have been busy over the summer in contact with GUSD regarding return to school plans as well as with Rosemont's "R.O.C.K.-in" principal Ms. Risse, on how we can best help meet educational, safety and socio-emotional needs of kids and families. We have been meeting with other school PTA leaders regarding concerns and celebrations, and attending training sessions to stay abreast of developments in child advocacy, policy, and student/family needs. We welcome the thoughts of our members on what they think is best for students.
