Good evening.  I hope you are enjoying your summer!


On behalf of the staff at Rosemont Elementary School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2019-20 school year!  I hope you were able to spend time this summer with family and friends.  We are looking forward to a productive partnership to ensure all children achieve their highest potential because we recognize that in order to be successful, our children need support from both home and school.  This week’s Rosemont Community Connection features seven important messages. 

Open House
Open House is on Friday, August 30 from 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. At the Open House you will have a chance to visit your child’s new classroom and meet their new teacher. Please note that information about your child’s teacher will be provided on the day of Open House.

First Day of School
The first day of school is Tuesday, September 3.  School begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 3:25 p.m. Children should not arrive at school before 8:40 a.m.

Name Tags 
Name tags are very important to ensure student safety.  K-3 students should wear a name tag that includes the following information: 

  • First and Last Name
  • Grade Level and Teacher
  • Phone Number
  • Dismissal Plan - bus color/global/car-rider

Student Transportation
MCPS has updated the bus routes for the 2019-2020 school year.  Please check the attachment to identify your child’s arrival and departure bus route, color and pick up time. 
If your child will ride a bus, I strongly encourage you to put your child on the bus the first day of school to acclimate her/him to the routine of riding the bus. 

School Supplies
School is fast approaching. Each grade level has a specific supply list.  You may download the attachment to identify which supplies your child will need this school year.


Back to School Night
Back-to-School Night for grades K-5 will be held on Thursday, September 19 from 6:30 – 8:00p.m. During the meeting, you will have a chance to hear from administration, the PTA president, and your child’s teacher about their instructional program.

Rosemont Twitter
Please follow our school on twitter @RosemontElem to receive updates and to see our students and staff engage in fun learning!


All information stated during this message will be automatically sent via email and can be found on our school website. Otherwise, a hard copy may be picked up at Rosemont between the hours of 9:00am and 3:00pm, Monday – Friday.


I look forward to meeting all of you and learning about your children.  I am excited about the 2019-2020 school year.  It is my hope that we can all work together to form a strong partnership, calling upon the strengths of home, school, and the Gaithersburg community.

Have a wonderful evening.
