RMS to celebrate National School Choice Week with special event

Ross Montessori Charter School will hold a special event from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6, to celebrate National School Choice Week. This free event will feature a viewing of “Schools That Change Communities,” a film by Bob Gliner that profiles a diverse group of public schools that are successfully creating higher achieving students in a different way by turning the communities where they live into their classrooms. Following the movie, a Q&A session about charter schools will follow in the school cafeteria. Also on hand this evening will be information packets for enrollment to Ross Montessori Charter School’s 2014-15 school year. The event will be held at the school, 407 Merrill Ave. in Carbondale.
