Today is Tuesday, November 14 and here’s the news about what’s happening at ROMS.  The weather calls for more of those clouds and rain showers  with a high of 8 degrees.   Keep your umbrella open kids

Lost and Found continues to grow every day.  Be sure to look for you missing items.   Your items are not stolen rather they are sitting in the L & F waiting for you!


Our new School Superintendent, Mr Eberwein,  came to  our school last Thursday.  He was very impressed with all the exciting learning he witnessed and with the warm welcome he received.
