Rombout Recipes

The Culture Team is creating a recipe book to represent Rombout's diverse community! We would like the students to submit recipes that they love! These recipes can be a family recipe, an ethnic recipe, a recipe that is always used for a special occasion, or even just a recipe of your favorite dish. Please fill out this google form to submit the recipe. Some of the recipes may even be featured in our cafeteria for lunch one day! Please contact Mrs. Edelman (edelman.l@beaconk12.org) if you have any questions.

Update from PBIS

Our candy gram sale was a great success! We delivered about 300 candy grams to students and staff on Valentine's Day! The messages seemed to really uplift everyone that day! You still have time to send a message to your student and have it placed on the Heart Tree. Messages can be sent through this google form. Please send the $1 in with your student and have them bring it to Mrs. Edelman. Thank you for the support of our PBIS program.
