Back-to-School Night

Virtual Back-to-School Night (parents only) will take place on Monday, September 13 at 6:30 PM. This event is an opportunity for parents to meet the teachers, learn about the curriculum and important classroom information. This adult only event will be held in-person and you will have the opportunity to hear about the plans and expectations for the year from your child’s teacher.

Individual classroom presentations will occur in two sessions and all teachers will be available for both sessions. Both sessions will be identical and families only need to attend one session. If you have more than one student at Rosemary Hills, you have the opportunity to attend both sessions.

Please note that Back-to-School Night is not a time for individual conferences. Teachers will need to leave promptly at the end of the second session.

Classroom teachers will share their Zoom links with you in a separate email.

Open House 2021

We can’t wait for the first day of school on Monday, August 30, 2021! Please review the important information below.

Based on new updates from MCPS, large scale events (Open House/Back-to-School Night) cannot be held indoors and we are making the following adjustments:

On Friday, August 27, Orientation for students only in K-2 will take place. The Orientation times for each grade level are noted below.

Kindergarten1:30 – 1:50 PM
1st Grade2:00 – 2:20 PM
2nd Grade2:30 – 2:50 PM

Please arrive 10 minutes before your child’s session to check your child in at the front of the school.

Look for the table with the teacher’s name. Students will line up outside with their teacher and then the teacher will walk the students into the building and to the classroom. When orientation is finished, teachers will walk students outside to meet their parents.

If you have school supplies and would like to drop them off, we will have an outside area to collect these items. Please be sure to put the teacher’s name on the bag.

Look Ahead

Back-to-School Night will be a virtual event on September 13 at 6:30 PM. Classroom teachers will share their Zoom links with you in a separate email.
