Dear Upper School Families -
This week, Lower School Students joined our Upper School Science classes for some Spooky Science! Once again, what a joy to see the kids all working together. After a hectic time the past few weeks, things finally seem to be slowing down a bit. Seniors have sent many early college applications off, and Carnival is behind us. Now, we can look ahead to some of our exciting upcoming activities.

Roycemore is proud to partner with Adobe and Northwestern University to embark on this quest to host the first Creative Jam for High School students.
