Five Rosemount High School students hope a catchy tune about seatbelt use and safety behind the wheel will earn them $5,000 each to put toward college. Win or lose, though, all of the students agree this is the most fun they’ve ever had with a scholarship application.
When sophomore Stuart Hatlen rallied against his opponent from Hastings on Monday, it was another reminder of the development of the Rosemount boys tennis players.
Since becoming Rosemount’s coach, Jeanne Ewen has stressed the importance of playing during the offseason. Entering this spring, many of the players had played more during the offseason than at any other time for the Irish.
With high expectations entering last season, Rosemount boys golf coach Greg Gamache admits to a slow start by the Irish.
Once the golfers started to reach their potential, Rosemount finished strong. Yet, even during the run to the section meet, the Irish didn’t shoot below a 310. In the section meet, they finished with a 303.
If new Rosemount baseball coach Chris Swansson could have designed how he wanted his team to start this season it likely wouldn’t have approached what the Irish were able to accomplish in real life.
Rosemount started Swansson’s tenure as coach with three wins in its first three games. It was an accomplishment built on solid pitching and a lot of hitting, a combination any coach would be proud of.
As excited as Rosemount girls track and field coach Sara Hatleli was entering this season, she knew there was work ahead.
One of the reasons the Irish have a lot of work ahead of them is because the overall numbers of athletes has increased again this season.
Plenty of students have nightmares about taking tests. Kim Budde has been having nightmares about giving them.
That’s a big thing this time of year. Budde is an assistant principal at Rosemount High School, and this is the heart of testing season. For students, that means a schedule filled with standardized exams identified by acronyms — SAT, ACT, AP — and includes two days of standardized tests next week to determine whether they’ll get to graduate and how their school is progressing toward national No Child Left Behind goals

Thanks to a $12,770 grant from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency students and teachers at Rosemount High School are stepping up efforts to reduce the school’s carbon footprint. The group’s goal is to cut energy use and other environmental impacts to reduce that footprint 11 percent by June of 2011.
Rosemount High School is a big old building, and it takes a whole lot to keep it heated in the winter, cooled in the summer and lit all year round. According to science teacher Veda Kanitz gas and electric bills ran $332,000 last year at RHS.
The students in Leigh Anderson’s class get to dress up a lot more than their classmates at Rosemount High School. Since classes began last September they’ve acted as firemen, paramedics and police officers. They’ve pretended to give birth and they’ve used makeup to give themselves nasty-looking cuts and bruises.
The Rosemount boys swimming and diving team won its section meet over the weekend and will send three relays and six individuals to the Minnesota State Swimming and Diving Meet that will take place March 4 and 6 at the University of Minnesota.
Lexi Johnson went through drug education classes when she was a sixth grader at Rosemount Middle School, but she doesn’t remember them being anything like this.
Johnson remembers playing games and having fun. She certainly doesn’t remember learning things.
And that, teachers will tell you, is the trick.
