Drive For Your Students Event
Rome Free Academy, in conjunction with the RFA PBIS team, is sponsoring their first ever DRIVE FOR YOUR STUDENTS TEST DRIVE EVENT whereby Buick will donate $10 for each test drive up to a total of $10,000 to our school. Davidson Auto Group will be bringing 10 shiny new Buicks to RFA during it's Open House on Tuesday, September 19, from 2:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for the test drives. Any driver age 21 or older with a valid license and proof of insurance is encouraged to come and test drive a Buick to help raise money for our students. We are encouraging all of the Rome City Schools to support this event. As a special incentive: the building that has the highest percentage of adults doing test drives will receive a FREE MUFFIN MONDAY sponsored by RFA's PBIS team!
Host Family Needed
Each year the Rome Rotary Club welcomes a foreign student to our community for the school year. Usually, each exchange student lives with three different families through the course of a year for about 3 1/2 months each. This year’s student is a boy from Hungary. He is living with Sam & Cynthia Pendergrast. We are looking for a host family for winter (December through mid-March) and spring (mid-March through June). 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 from Taiwan, and many more. 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.
