Representatives from the Michigan Science Center and Eastern Michigan University assisted with preparing Romulus Middle School students for the upcoming M-Step test.

Dear RHS Families:
Each year during the month of April, Romulus High School runs special schedules during State of Michigan Mandated Testing for 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students. This year these exams will take place on April 11th, 12th, and 13th. The required exams consist of a series of tests for the following groups:
Matthew Williams, a seventh grader at Barth Elementary School, has claimed third place among middle school students in the SIFMA Foundation’s Fall 2016 InvestWrite® competition. The program challenges thousands of students across the country to consider an investing scenario and make recommendations that incorporate short- and long-term investment goals.
The Romulus Eagles varsity basketball team followed up their district title by improving to 20-4. They beat Ann Arbor Pioneer 66-53 in the regional championship on Wednesday night. With the game tied at halftime the Eagles came out strong in the second half going on a 12-0 run. Head coach Jerret Smith said, “We just had to keep pushing, we knew we had to wear them down”. The Eagles will face Detroit U-D Jesuit at Callahan Hall on Tuesday, March 21st at 5pm.
As a part of the celebration of March as Reading Month, State Representative Erika Geiss recently stopped by Wick Elementary to read to both classes of first graders. Representative Geiss read the book “I’m New Here” during her visit, and took questions from the students about the story as well as her job as an elected official. Pictured are (left to right): Rinden, Tiara, Alyssa, Representative Geiss, Lyrique, and Nicholas.
As part of the Black History Month celebrations, Mrs. Harris and Mrs. Rice's first grade classes constructed a Freedom Quilt. Students first listened to books about slavery during colonial times, the Underground Railroad, and how Freedom Quilts were used to communicate by escaping slaves. Students picked a quilt pattern to learn more about and completed a writing piece with their teacher explaining the meaning of the pattern. Students chose a personal pattern to color for their quilt block.
Ms. Rosie came to Romulus Elementary to share her knowledge of African-American instruments and stories. Students were asked to interact with Ms. Rosie by playing special instruments and telling interactive stories of African American culture. All students enjoyed and learned African phrases as well as oral traditions with Ms. Rosie's presentation.
