Second semester brings changes for ROMS students, teachers

For some ROMS students, the spring semester meant new classes, new classmates and new teachers.

“My classes changed. I still have CAP (Civil Air Patrol) though,” 7th grader Cheyenne Baker said.

Many electives at ROMS are one-semester courses, which means students must change their schedule second semester. Some of the one-semester classes include technology, photography, nutrition and wellness, career portals and Spanish.

“I like my new classes, even though I really liked taking Spanish,” Baker said.

Some students, however, weren’t as excited about changing.

“I don’t like my new classes. I don’t know anybody in my new classes,” 7th grader Kateri Webb said.

For elective teachers, the spring semester can signal a new — and much-needed — change.

“My classes changed, and they’re new and much better,” Spanish teacher Claudia Vent said.
