Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

We love our faculty and staff at Rombout! Thank you teachers for all the work you put forth, day in and day out, to help our students grow and learn. Friday, May 6th is also "School Lunch Heros Day!" Our staff that works in the cafeteria is amazing and we appreciate all that they do! Students, this week make sure you say thank you to your teachers when you see them in class and give our food service workers a special shout out when you go through the lunch line!
