Innovation in Sustainability Award

Congratulations to Marianne Romsek, Food Service Director, for winning ARAMARK’s Innovation in Sustainability Award for the Midwest region!

Marianne Romsek is truly an innovator as she is continuously improving processes, and coming up with strategies to best serve the students in Bloomfield Hills Schools. Romsek has been successful at keeping sustainability and farm-to-school initiatives in place. “I was awarded a grant that helped to fund $15,000 of the Michigan produce we purchased this year which enabled me to provide more than $35,000 in Michigan foods to our community."

Romsek purchased paper boxes instead of foam boxes to package meals during the pandemic. “We needed to make this switch to keep our promise to the community to move towards a more sustainable program,” shares Romsek. 

The coordinated efforts of BHS food services during the past two school years to ensure all families have access to healthy meals has been remarkable. Thank you to Ms. Romsek and the foodservice staff on behalf of the BHS community!

Max Mojica

Max Mojica is starting kindergarten. This is something that hardly seemed possible just a few years ago, but, due to the interventions of the Early On Program through Bloomfield Hills Schools, Max made extensive progress. “There are SO many amazing people,” gushed parent Ericka Mojica, “I cannot say enough wonderful things about them. As soon as they sent me the email saying that he is not going to need anything going into kindergarten, and that he is ready for full-on kindergarten, I’m not going to lie, I got teary-eyed.”

Middle School Orchestra Students Create Their Own Remix!

Middle School Orchestra Director Nat Erde provided a fun and educational challenge to Orchestra students at West Hills and East Hills Middle Schools recently: create a remix, or variation, and present it in a video. For this project, 6th - 8th grade Orchestra students chose a song or exercise from class and altered two aspects of the music, such as key signature, tempo, rhythm, articulation, or dynamics.
