Romig Middle School

We, the community of Romig Middle School, will create an environment where students and adults come together cooperatively to strive for academic achievement and social-emotional growth.  Our diverse community encourages responsibility, promotes honesty and cooperation, challenges students to seek an intercultural understanding, and empowers students to have respect in order to achieve success today and in the future.

Romig Middle School will be teaching the 2nd
t Quarter Personal Safety lessons between December 11-21 during the Advisory/Support period. The age-appropriate lessons will be presented in a non-threatening way, along with the skills needed for self-protection. The lesson content is part of the Anchorage School District’s plan to enact the Alaska Safe Children’s Act and will be handled in a sensitive, respectful manner.
