Living with an attitude of gratitude
This past week the community generosity has been amazing! When I looked this morning, the PTSA fundraiser is at $4,821 in one week! This will allow us to provide hot holiday meals to 54 of our families who will appreciate this kind gift of generosity.
Last week Office Depot on Tudor donated three pallets of school supplies to Romig. We are overwhelmed by the volume of items that were donated. This donation was made possible by individual donations in the store and a huge supplement of supplies from Office Depot itself. Thank you so much to manager Jae Witzke, Office Depot's staff, and community members who donated.
Finally, my heart is filled with gratitude for how amazing our entire Romig community is. There is no other school I would want to work at during all that we continue to face. After years have passed, we will look upon it with pride when we reflect on this time. Pride for all that we accomplished when it seemed impossible, pride for how we continue to lift one another up, and pride in our community's perseverance. Take the time to recognize what you have accomplished and been able to adapt to over the past eight months. Take the time to think of all the positives that have happened during this difficult time. There is no better feeling than having a heart full of gratitude.
Thank you Office Depot!
Thanksgiving Meals for Romig Families
We are so close to our original goal!! Can you help us reach it or beat it? Our goal was to provide meals for 50-60 families. Romig has been so generous we would love to have enough to provide meals for all 100+ students who need this support.
Please join Romig PTSA to raise funds to help provide a Thanksgiving Meal to Romig Families that could use our support this Holiday Season.

Two best ways to support your student's learning
2) Check Canvas weekly for assignment completion. We are all more successful when we have some form of accountability :)

At some point, the in-person school will resume. I do not anticipate a return for middle school students in 2020, but we are currently working on our plans so that when that day comes, we will be as prepared as possible.
´We are working to develop a schedule, risk mitigation, CDC Behavior, and instruction delivery plans.
'Plans will include input from families, staff, and ASD leadership.
´We plan to have a schedule that begins when students arrive and outline the school day until students leave.
´We will have a risk mitigation plan to cover disinfection, social distancing, mask-wearing, students eating and drinking and passing between classes.
´We are working on rearranging rooms for spacing.
´We are developing procedures to teach students expectations and the new norms around face coverings, social distancing, and avoiding crowded situations.
