ROMS Families,

Welcome to the 2023 - 2024 school year. We cannot tell you how excited we are to be joining you on your child’s educational journey.  Here at ROMS, we truly feel that we are your partners in education and take that responsibility very seriously.

For this school year, along with the 4 Talons of the Hawk, we are using the acroynm R.O.M.S. to guide everything we do. R.O.M.S. stands for:

                                            Respect Always

                                            Overall Obedience

                                            Mutal Accountability

                                            Safety and Service

We want everyone that is part of the Red Oak Middle School Learning Community to live by these principles. If we can respect each other, follow the rules and guidelines set forth by the district/campus, hold each other mutually accountable and always remember to keep each other safe emotionally and physically, then this will be the best year yet. 

As we walk this journey together this year, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s teachers, the school counselor or our administrative team.  To quote a great champion of students, Flip Flippen, “Our goal is your success!”
