Rockin’ Romona will also give families an opportunity to preview an array of opportunities to get involved within the school community. A sampling of After School R Clubs programming will be featured, courtesy of Right at School, and will include rhythmic gymnastics and basketball.
Every Friday, students at Romona participate in “Mustang Madness” in which students are encouraged to wear their “Romona Wear” or school colors. To make shopping easy, Romona PTA will be on-hand with Romona Wear samples for sizing purposes and to process order requests.
MightyNest will also be present to sell their earth-friendly lunch and back-to-school products. MightyNest’s mission is to provide hand-selected natural, organic and non-toxic products for the whole family. And, beginning at 5:30p.m., the Wilmette Fire Department will be at the event to provide tours of one of their engines.
