YMCA Offers Free Swim Lessons

Students at Romulus High School are learning how to swim thanks to free swim classes offered by instructors from the YMCA in Southgate. The partnership has benefitted students who are enrolled in Karen Morelli’s self-contained classroom, as well as students in Mrs. Mancilla’s Learning Independence for Transition Program (LIFT). Originally the class was designed to be an eight week course, but thanks to student interest and the commitment from the YMCA it has continued as an ongoing program. “We are very fortunate to have this program at RHS.

The Sleeping Beauty Ballet

During Spring Break Students from Eastern Michigan University's Bright Futures program at RMS and RHS attended The Sleeping Beauty ballet at the Detroit Opera House. The ballet featured renowned dancer Misty Copeland as Princess Florine. Copeland recently made history as the first African American Female Principal Dancer with the prestigious American Ballet Theatre. When she discovered ballet, however, Misty was living in a shabby motel room, struggling with her five siblings for a place to sleep on the floor.

RHS Inducts New Members

Romulus High School inducted 22 new National Honor Society members under the advisement of Mrs. Abdo and Mrs. Rice. These sophomore students have maintained a 3. 5 grade point average or higher, and have been recommended by their teachers. Now that the students have been inducted, they are required to complete a minimum of 40 hours of community service each year. Congratulations to all the new National Honor Society members.

The bands gather, perform, and receive critique by three judges on rhythm, technique, and intonation in addition to posture and overall sound. Ratings range from V to I, with 1 being the highest.

State Rep Visits RHS

Romulus High School had a special appearance from State Representative Erika Geiss on Friday, February 19th  for Legislator to Lunch Week. The visit was prompted by Kathleen Norred, who is the Food Service Director for Romulus Community Schools. The School Nutrition Association of Michigan encourages the partnership between schools and government officials in hopes to establish an on-going relationship for dialog around the issue of child nutrition programs.

Band Clinicians

As the RHS concert and symphony bands prepare for MSBOA festival, Ms. Mills seeks additional ways to challenge and improve our music students. On February 18th, Bradley Grasl from D’Addario visited Romulus High School to host a master class with our clarinets. In addition, Mills brought in Professor Douglas Bianchi, director of bands from Wayne State University, to work as a clinician and offer guidance on February 25th. Both experiences were invaluable to students.
