Builder's Club

Builders club had a successful fundraiser for St Baldricks and our team the "Bald Bulldogs" led by Mr Wenz. We raised over $300 when students donated a dollar to participate in the Hat and PJ days.

We also had a great visit with our senior friends playing bingo and we hope to make one last visit before the year is out.

St. Baldrick's and the Bald Bulldogs

Our team was 4th out of all of the teams at the Romeo event. We set a team record of over $14,000 donated to fight childhood cancers!! Thank you to everyone who participated or donated to this important event. A special thank you to Mr. Wenz for heading up the team and doing such an amazing job!


Romeo Middle School students in Mrs. Couch's Informational Writing Class attended a field trip to Oakland University as part of the Kids2College program. They participated in a panel discussion with college students and had a tour of the campus facilities. They interacted with mentors from the college and had the opportunity to ask questions about everything from how much college costs to how to pick a major and so much more. Overall our students enjoyed themselves and represented Romeo proudly. The goal of the program is to plant the seed at an early age that college is attainable and that what they do in middle school and high school can help them reach their goals.

Mr. Wenz & Mrs. Salvatore appreciate being able to provide the opportunity for your sons/daughters to have an enjoyable, active, after school activity. Please look for registration forms when you visit RMS in August for Dawg Days!

Boater's Safety

Seventh grade students recently participated in a Boater’s Safety course through the Macomb County Sheriff Marine Division. At the end of the course, students took a 50

question test over the material covered in the text and in class. If students passed with a 70% or better, they earned a boating safety certificate. 145 students out of 180 total (81%)

passed and earned their certificate. Eleven students earned 100%!

Students who received a perfect score of 100% are: Riley Ameel, Cate Kovacic, Gabriella Minor, Gwendolyn Pogodzinski, Emeline Rodger, Gabriella Selewski, Cassandra Yestrepsky, Alivia Cucchiara, Connor Kohl, Amber Trelfa and Lillian Zwiez. These students will be invited to a field trip with the other 100 percenters throughout Macomb County to tour the Macomb County Sheriff Marine Division station, go out on the Sheriff's boats, tour the DNR next door and have lunch with the deputies.

Congratulations to all students who earned their certificates!

Dress Code Remimder

Spring time is here and warmer weather is on the way. Parents, please take time to review the school dress code with your child(ren). The dress code can be found on pages 19&20 of the Student Handbook. Immodest clothing is a concern during the warmer months of school.

Enviromental Tip

Choose earth-friendly landscaping. When landscaping your yard, you can protect your kids, pets, and the environment from harm. Use pesticides sparingly. Put mulch around trees and plants. Water your lawn only when it needs it (1-2 times a week is usually sufficient) and choose plants native to Michigan. Once established, these plants tolerate dry weather and resist disease.
