State School Superintendent, Dr. John Barge, arrived at Rome Middle School Friday
morning, October 24, 2014, for a tour of the school. He was met in the
front hall by Mr. Greg Christian, RMS Principal; Dr. John Jackson, RCS
Superintendent; Mrs. Sunita Holloway, RCS Title I Director; and Mrs.
Beeman, RCS School Board member. Two members of the local press joined
the group as we started the tour.
The group toured the
school starting in the art classroom. Dr. Barge looked at several pieces
of student work and moved around the room interacting with the students
and Ms. Burrier, the art teacher. The group continued the tour by
stopping in two of the three world language classrooms, the gifted ELA,
Math, Math 180, Chorus, Band, and 8th grade science classrooms. Dr.
Barge engaged with the students in each classroom.
