COLLEGE FAIR

This past Friday, sophomores and juniors had the opportunity to learn more about UH, Baylor, The Art Institute, Dallas Baptist University, and SFA.  Each school gave a brief overview of their campus and highlighted specific degree programs and the best aspects of campus life.  Students were then able to meet with each college in a college fair-style Q&A.  

MS TRACK & FIELD

This year the HAPS Middle School Track and Field Championship was hosted by Rosehill Christian on April 9th and 10th.  The 12 team championship was exciting and the individual events provided some very intense competition amongst the athletes.  As a result of the competition, many of Rosehill’s 48 middle school athletes finished their season with personal records in their individual events!
From a coaching perspective, it was an extremely successful season!  It was very encouraging to watch our young Rosehill athletes continually improve throughout the track and field season, accepting new challenges and learning the importance of hard work, dedication and commitment.  Our team was reminded throughout the season that one of our primary goals was to continually strive for self-improvement and to become a better athlete than you were the day before!
With all this said, our Rosehill teams had a very notable championship with our Grade 5 – 7 girls team claiming the Runner Up Team trophy by finishing a very close second to Legacy Prep.  The eighth grade boys placed 3rd amongst eleven other teams.  The 5 – 7 grade boys team successfully finished 4th overall.  Kaleigh Frazer was the girl’s top individual performer with 4 Gold Medals!  Reid Hauser was the boy’s top performer with two Gold Medals and one Silver Medal!
The team had many outstanding performances and our medalist included:

BIBLE STUDY

Dear Rosehill moms,
This is Nancy Tumlinson. I have taught the daily 7th grade Bible class at Rosehill for over ten years. In that class we drill and learn the stories of the Old Testament and the order (chronology) and significance of those stories. I also helped write the Our Spiritual Heritage Bible class material that is being taught in grades 3-6 here at Rosehill. Over the years, mothers of the students I have taught have asked if they could learn what their children were learning. I have been asked to teach just such a class this summer. You are invited to join us!
WHAT?
Old Testament: People, Places, Names, Faces
Rom. 15:4 claims that the Old Testament offers us comfort, patience, and hope. These blessings come from seeing God on and praising God from every page of the Bible text. We can find, learn, and then tell the stories of the Old Testament to the next generation. Let’s have fun together this summer.
FOR WHOM?
? Women teachers at Rosehill
? Moms interested in finding and then telling Bible stories to their children
? Moms interested in a preview of 3rd to 6th grade Bible classes at Rosehill
? Moms who want a preview of their children’s 7th grade Bible chronology class
? Moms who are frustrated since they don’t know the kings and the prophets (? of the Bible text)
WHEN?*
Tuesdays … (9:30-11:30)
June 12, 19, and 29 … July 10, 17, and 24
