For over a decade, a special person smiled in the second row at Rossman’s annual Grandparents’ Day concert. She was not the grandparent of a student but of a teacher! How many people get to bring Grandma to school for thirty-five years?

This Friday will mark the first time my grandmother doesn’t accompany me to Grandparents’ Day at Rossman. After losing her two weeks ago at the age of 97, I’ve spent a lot of time reflecting on our relationship and time together. What stands out to me are not the extravagant events like family trips, graduations or weddings but small, seemingly...Read more

One of the most gratifying experiences over my seven years at Rossman has been greeting students at the front door of the school each morning. It is a perfect place to be situated to recognize the children’s differing characteristics and idiosyncratic behaviors as they start the school day.

Vegas newbs and whales alike enjoyed a memorable evening of fun and friendship Saturday, March 9, at Ross Vegas! The biennial “fun”raiser hosted by the Rossman School Parents’ Club raised $78,000 for Rossman students. Nearly 130 parents, faculty and staff gathered in the Marshall Gymnasium to try their luck at classic casino games, delight in a delicious dinner buffet and enter an array of enticing raffles. Up for grabs in the silent auction were a number of Rossman rarities and class projects. There was even a surprise visit by an Elvis tribute artist, who filled the room with laughter...Read more
