Rotary Exchange Student
Each year the Rome Rotary Club welcomes a foreign student to our community for the school year. A key need for each exchange student is host families. Typically a student lives with three different families through the course of a year for about 3 1/2 months each – one from late August through Thanksgiving, one from Thanksgiving through mid-March, and one from then through the end of June or early July.
Our community life has been enriched by many students you may remember through the years – Mathilde Crampon from France, Gustavo Calderon from Ecuador, Sandy Li the year before from Taiwan, and many more.
Next year we will welcome a young man from Hungary. If your family would like to find out more about hosting, please contact Sam Pendergrast, who is the Youth Exchange Officer for the Rome Rotary Club, at 315-617-3567 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find out more about the Rotary Youth Exchange Program at www.7150youthexchange.org Please talk to Sam Pendergrast before beginning an application to become a host family.
JP Morgan Corporate Challenge
The sun is shining (finally) and it's time to remind everyone of our annual JPMorgan Corp Run/Walk. The event is scheduled for June 6th at 6:25 p.m. in Liverpool, at Onondaga Lake Park. The run/walk is a 3.5 mile course and is open to any and all District employees. To register, please go online to www.jpmorgan.com/cc. Registration deadline is Thursday, May 11 and could be earlier if capacity is reached. When registering: click on 'Registration' in the left column, then click register in the white square. Next, scroll down to Rome City School District and click to register. The event is always a great time! We offer car pooling for anyone interested in participating as well. JP Morgan gives money to corporations that participate, which adds incentive to boost our participation. If we have enough participants signed up, then we can be in the 'running' to receive a Scholarship Award for our school district! Help us reach our goal this year and come out for a fun evening of running/walking. If you have any questions about the event, please contact Stacy Butcher at email@example.com.
