RTA Canned Food Drive
During the week of May 6 - May 10, the Rome Teacher's Association will be conducting a district-wide canned food drive to help stock the shelves of our two currently active food pantries at Gansevoort and Bellamy. Through the Community Schools initiative, the district and the Rome Alliance for Education are working to develop food pantries in each building. This week, canned foods can be brought to any school for a donation to the food pantries. Simply bring your unexpired canned good to the main office of your child's school, and we will deliver the cans to the pantries. The pantries are open to ALL families in the district and please help the RTA stock the shelves for our community!!
Contingency Day Give Back
We currently have one (1) unused contingency day for the 2018-2019 school year. After a careful review of the school calendar and activities for the months of May and June, the only day remaining this school year where there are no major activities occurring that cannot be rescheduled is Monday, June 10. Baring any unforeseen event happening between now and June 10, the Rome City School District will be closed on Monday, June 10 to finish the use of our contingency days. By utilizing this day, none of the student activities, field trips, or building events will be effected. Please mark your calendars for this date.
