October promises to be a busy and exciting month at Rosemont School! Two classes will participate in Open Minds/Campus Calgary experiences. Room 1 will spend a week at the Glenbow Museum. This will be a great opportunity for the students to study their local community and expand their understanding of the larger community of Calgary and southern Alberta. Room 4 will spend a week at Ralph Klein Park as part of Eco-Action School. Their week will be spent learning about parkland and wetland ecosystems with a focus on conservation.
On October 7th, we were happy to host Olympic athlete Georgia Simmerling. Georgia spoke to our students about her experience as an elite athlete and introduced the students to the sports of Downhill Skiing and Ski Cross. Halloween will be celebrated with our annual Halloween Carnival on October 25th. This will be followed by a costume parade on the afternoon of October 31st. We have also started our yoga for kids program as part of our physical education program.
