Parents and students learned next to one another last Tuesday Night at Romulus Middle School. Parents were taught some card games to play at home with their children to improve math skills for the first session courtesy of Mrs. Haidar. The second session took parents into the light with UV rays. Mrs. Covert and Mrs. Green had students and parents experimenting with UV flashlights and special beads to show the effect of Ultra Violet light. Parents and students learned how sunscreen, sunglasses, and simply being in the shade have an effect on UV light exposure.
Students at Romulus Middle School were recognized for their achievement in Art. Mr. Steyaert, art teacher at the middle school, selected various pieces of artwork from his students to put on display in the Media Center. The work will be up for a few weeks and we are very proud of the accomplishments of our art students.
