Over the summer, Eastern Michigan University Bright Futures took a group of Romulus High School students camping at Waterloo Recreation Area in Chelsea, MI. Students were immersed in the wilderness for three days and three nights. During this trip, participants had the opportunity to go swimming, row boating and hiking. “For many of our students this was their first time camping, and I believe that exposing them to nature is important to their overall development”, said Lauren Richardson EMU Bright Futures Site Coordinator for Romulus High School.

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.
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.

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.
