Hello ROMS families,

Please join us at our next PAC meeting, Thursday November 15th, in the learning commons at 6pm.

Our Guest speakers will be Kyle Goy, Emma Cottier and Darcy McNee, who will speak and share their Google Presentation for the PAC.  They will have the ROMS Chromebooks out and available for use if parents would like to practice going through the Google account. If you have your own laptop and wish to use it at the presentation you are welcome to bring your own.

Overview of the presentation,

General Introductions - What is Google Apps for Education/GSuite? How and why are we using it at ROMS?

3 Breakout Sessions:

  • Just Getting Started – for those parents/adults who don’t have a Google Account and would like to start one

  • Student Led Demos – students on hand to demonstrate and    showcase some of their work in Google

  • Independent Playtime – ‘Google Ninja Training Challenge’ that parents can work through independently if they have their own Google Account and want to learn more

Questions and Closure

If you are interested in attending this presentation could you please email  to reserve your seat as well to make sure we will have enough Chromebooks available for parents to use?

Thank YOU! Hope to see you on November 15 at 6 pm for this great presentation by Mr. Goy, Miss Cottier and Ms. McNee.

PAC Meeting will follow after the presentation.
