AREA Community Conversation
Throughout the year, the Rome City School District will be hosting a series of community conversations to learn more about the needs and desires of our students and community in the area of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. The conversations will be held monthly in various locations throughout the district and our third event will be this coming Tuesday evening, November 16 at Denti Elementary. The session will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. For more information, including pre-registering your participation, please visit our website at: https://www.romecsd.org/news_page/you_re_invited__area_community_conversations_
Student Art & Essay Exhibition
The New York State Education Department is pleased to announce that they will sponsor an exhibition in recognition of the life and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. As in years past, they will honor Dr. King’s memory by inviting schools to submit student art and essays that reflect Dr. King’s teaching. This exhibition is not a contest. All schools are encouraged to join in this initiative and all submissions will be exhibited. A maximum of one piece of artwork and one essay entry may be submitted per student. Group work within each level is permitted and encouraged. As part of the celebration, all entries will be viewable in an online exhibit via www.empirestateplaza.ny.gov/nyking. For more information on the project and/or for submission information, please contact the district office.
On Monday, November 29 at 6:00 p.m., our current redistricting/restructuring consultants will be engaging the community in conversations regarding their thoughts and concerns related to the way that schools are structured. The event will be held at Strough Middle School and will involve all members of the community that wishes to attend. It will be a combination of presentations about future enrollment projections/needs of the district, some preliminary information about what the consultant is feeling could be a recommendation to the district for restructuring, and an opportunity for round table brainstorming for the community to provide feedback and ideas. We will continue to share information regarding the event as the date nears.
