Message from the Principal

Greetings Romulus Families;


I hope this newsletter finds your family enjoying the holiday season together.  Whatever holidays your family celebrates, my wish is that you make precious memories.  At Romulus we try to make this season as special as possible for students.  The purpose of this letter is to make sure that you are well aware of all of the upcoming events at our school.


On December 13th at 7:00, we are holding our annual holiday music concert for grades 4-12 in the auditorium.  Even if you don’t have students in the chorus or band, think about coming out and enjoying the music.  On December 21st, we will be having our annual Polar Express movie event.  Students are allowed to wear their pajamas and view the Polar Express in the auditorium.  On December 22nd, we will have our holiday sing along in the auditorium at 8:30.  Parents and friends are invited to attend and then after students will be having their holiday parties in their classrooms.  Parents can stay and then sign their students out when you want to leave.  Giving us a heads up about lunches that day would be greatly appreciated.  As you can see we will be a very busy place at Romulus.


First trimester report cards will have been sent home and I want to make sure that everyone is aware of how standards based report card works.  Parents who have had students in grades K-3 know a little about this experience, but this year we are expanding it to grades K-5.  Instead of a number, students are rated on a scale of 1-4 for each of the standards that they need to achieve.  If a line is left blank it means that particular standard has not been covered yet.  Some of our students are working below grade level, that is OK, so please don’t be alarmed if your student receives a 1 or a 2 for that particular standard.  We are committed to teaching students at their level so that they can become competent in all skills.  If you remember back when we were in school, teachers just pushed through the material and skills regardless of ability level.  If you didn’t attain the skill, there was limited opportunity to master it.  We believe in helping students master skills before they move forward, in short we are looking for growth throughout the year.  If you have any questions about the report cards please do not hesitate to contact me.


From my family at home and our family at school; have a wonderful holiday season.  Make some memories.  I know it is an old cliche, but with a son who is a senior this year, it goes faster than you can ever imagine.  Cherish the little moments.
