We would like to welcome and congratulate our new Academic Advisor, Stephany Burleson. Stephany has been with RCS for seven years as the Academic Office Manager and will be assuming her new role on June 1, 2019. Stephany has a Bachelor of Science in Sociology from Texas A&M University and is currently working on her Guidance Counselor's Certification. Stephany and her husband Jett have two daughters at Rosehill and are active members of Good Shepherd United Methodist Church. We are excited to have Stephany in this new role.
Field Day is coming soon on May 17th! Students may wear athletic shorts to school for Field Day, but they must meet the RCS "fit" guidelines. This means that shorts cannot be too short, too tight, or too revealing. The rule of thumb for length is that when a student places her hands in front of her, her fingertips should be touching fabric and not her skin. Please do not wear biker shorts or spandex. So grab your tennis shoes and your rad tye-dye shirts you made in art and get ready for a day of team spirit and lots of fun!
A variety of camps are offered every summer. Summer camps are open to children of all ages. You do not have to be a Rosehill student to attend summer camps.
- SUMMER FUNSummer Fun camps are available for our youngest students, ages 3 through those who have completed Kindergarten.
- CAMP EAGLECamp Eagle is offered to students who have complete Kindergarten through 6th grade.

Students in Spanish IV Honors visited the Doneraki on May 1, an authentic Mexican restaurant downtown. Not only did the students speak Spanish the entire meal with each other and with the staff, but more importantly, La Catrina, the series of novels they have been reading for the past two years, are based on the works of the famous painter, Diego Rivera, and the Mexican legend of "La Catrina." The Doneraki has Rivera's exact mural re-created from Mexico City, Sueño de una Tarde Dominical en la Alameda Central, that spans one of their entire walls, with "La Catrina" at the center. They also have a room dedicated to the artist, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera's wife. Students also recently researched and presented historical presentations in Spanish to their peers over Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, "La Catrina, " Diego's mural, and the Mexican War for Independence. The field trip was a great time for all and has become a highlight of this AP preparatory course.
