Did you know that there is ALOT of planning that goes into providing Library Services at Roma ISD? District librarians meet at least once a month to plan activities and coordinate lessons for students. They also are involved in many other activities that make their campuses run smoothly. Here are our district librarians at their October meeting at Roma Middle School. (Photo courtesy Dora Guillen-Salinas.)

The Delia G. Garcia Elementary School Warriors enjoyed a cool Bus Safety Presentation from our Roma ISD Transportation Department. All of the students, even those who don't normally ride the bus, learned important safety tips for use on their regular rides, for field trips and UIL activities for the future.

F. J. Scott Elementary encouraged students to wear blue to highlight World Bullying Prevention Day earlier this week. All schools at Roma ISD work year round to prevent bullying, and activities like this serve as a great reminder to students to always be caring and considerate of their peers. Great job Knights!

Garcia Elementary, R.T. Barrera Elementary, Ramiro Barrera Middle School, Veterans Memorial Elementary School and R. & C. Saenz Elementary School.

Thanks to all the sponsors, students and staff that made Roma ISD's annual Pink Game a success. The district hosted the Pink Game activities for the fourth year in a row, allowing sponsors to give out health information. The district also honored cancer survivors with a rose. Students participated by wearing pink in honor of those lost, those battling cancer and as a reminder that healthy living and early detection can save lives.
