WANTED: Dawg Walk Volunteers
It is almost here... our 2nd annual Dawg Walk on Friday, Oct. 7th! We still have lots of openings for volunteers on that day (sign-up ink below). We can't do it without YOUR help! Most jobs will simply be keeping the activities running smoothly -- nothing overwhelming, just doggone fun! Adult and student helpers are needed. Thank you!

Your Top 5 Dawg Walk Questions Answered:
1. How do I register my child for the Dawg Walk? Go to: http://www.thegetmovincrew.com/. Scroll down and click on the “Get Registered Parent Login” star on the lower right side of the webpage.
2. What, exactly, goes on during the Dawg Walk? For a list of events check out our our webpage (scroll to bottom): http://www.roms-pta.com/dawg-walk.html
3. How does my student earn raffle tickets? For every $25 collected, your student will receive 1 raffle ticket. Top fundraising LEAP classes will also be eligible for tickets and there are separate raffles for ELA Summer Readers and for participants in the "Field Day Games."
4. How does the money go toward my student's 8th grade Washington D.C. trip? 50% of all funds collected over $25 will go into your child’s D.C. account on WorldStrides.com.
5. What is the 2016 pledge goal for each ROMS student? $25 per student, but more donations means more raffle tickets and more funds in your D.C. trip account!

A MAKER CLUB REQUEST from Mrs Hill in the Learning Commons: As we get closer to the start of MAKER CLUB, I would like to send a request to parents or community members who would like to donate items for "Making" and "Tinkering". Items that we need for Maker Club include:
We also use a LOT of recycled materials, and usually the kids are able to bring a few things from home. If parents or community members would like to donate any of the above mentioned items, those donations would save us funds that could be used for purchasing other Maker materials. See the link below for a Maker Club presentation. Please let me know if you have questions or comments about Maker Club or our Maker Lab. Contact Mrs Hill: firstname.lastname@example.org

DROP-OFF & PICK UP PROCEDURES - Please refer to the map (link below) and remember to have your students enter/exit cars on the sidewalk side (not street side). Always abide by the "No Parking" signs. ROMS parking map:
