The Class of 2009 made a valiant effort in the 28th annual Spirit Day basketball game on March 6, but the fifth and sixth graders defeated the high school seniors 71-14. However, the alumni team proved victorious too, showing a great sense of humor and impressive skills amidst the 13 imaginative alumni handicaps dreamed up by P.E. teachers Jenna Babcock and Larry Huusko. 

Twenty-six members of Rossman’s Class of 2009 returned for the hijinks. The returning seniors represented John Burroughs School (10), Ladue High School (3), MICDS (6), Parkway Central High School (1), St. Louis....Read more

January was a very busy month in P.E. We just finished up our floor hockey unit, ending it with a tournament held at Rohan Woods last Saturday. It was a great day of hockey, and we had about 20 fifth and sixth graders there representing Rossman School. This was a round-robin type of tournament in which Rossman played each team in a twenty minute game. It was a great way to showcase the skills our students had been learning and working hard on for three weeks.

We also had our annual Jump Rope for Heart event on Friday January 30. Over 100 students participated in jump roping,...Read more

The 2014 Hour of Code was held worldwide last week, and Rossman School once again participated in this extraordinary event. Our students from Junior Kindergarten through Grade 6 spent at least one hour last week doing activities in their classrooms sponsored by Code.org. We were a small part of the 75 million people that had fun while learning the basics of coding.

Our goal is to get our students excited about the possibilities that lay before them and help them understand that learning to code will help them in whatever direction their lives take...Read more

Education is an invaluable resource we are given the right to enjoy. The sixth grade students at Rossman explored this idea as they learned how children around the world fight and strive for education. We reflected and wrote about our morning routines and the journeys we take to arrive at school each day. Learning about the dangers that some children in the world must face in order to achieve an education, the sixth graders recognized the value of education around the world and began to feel grateful for the education that they enjoy everyday.

We focused on one family’s trip to...Read more

On the morning of September 15, Rossman School sixth graders left Rossman for their traditional camping trip. We hopped on the bus sans any electronics and began a week of team-building challenges and memories.

Monday

The camp staff waited for us with smiles on their faces, ready to guide our students through their first challenge — the creek walk. This water-and-crayfish-filled pathway led the students to camp where they climbed up the bank, some of them wet to their shoulders and others completely dry! The students hiked up the rock path to their cabins,...Read more

Inspired by Marci Ridlon’s poem “That was Summer,” Rossman School sixth graders recently wrote their own poems describing summer through their senses.


“That was Summer”
By: Christopher M.
Have you ever seen summer? Sure you have. Remember that time
When you sat in the car all day
and rode
and rode
and rode
Until you reached the lake?
The lake was so calm and quiet compared to the last few hours of engine noise.
That was summer.
Remember that time
When it was the Fourth of July
And...Read more
