Virtual Admissions Morning

Skype with a Scientist!
Do you want to chat with a scientist over video chat from your living room?  Skype a Scientist  will match you with a scientist for free! These sessions are Q & A conversations, so you and your kids can talk with a scientist about what makes YOU curious. There are lots of different scientists to choose from!

There are two end of the year events for you to know about.
Culmination Night: Monday, June 1 at 4:00. All classes from Pre-kindergarten through Fourth will be showcasing the year and remote learning. Please join your children's classes to see all their accomplishments.

Friday, June 5th- Wrap Up Day* : A sign-up will be sent out to everyone to have a designated time to come to school for:
cubby clean out
technology drop-o ff  ( for those who borrowed Chrome Books)
Library books drop offs
yearbook pick up
*Face masks and social distancing will be required

If we were in school, the Fourth Graders would be planting the Roycemore garden, but even in remote learning they can still plant and see the seeds sprout.

One of the Junior Kindergarteners set up JK in his bedroom, and his father was Mr. Linkhart.

Third Graders, for their independent reading, created a project and then presented it on Flipgrid for classmates to comment on. They made board games, mystery boxes, trailers for movies, wrote scripts, did dioramas, and many more.

Our new Chief Griffinity Officer, Early Childhood staff member  Justin Bailey , launched a new webpage! This is another way for students and families to stay connected and continue to share our school spirit. Share your shelter in place experiences with us:  https://roycemoreschool.org/family/
