Please note: Northwestern University has a football game scheduled for October 18th. If you are coming to Lower School Pumpkin Carving, please expect extra traffic in the area that night and take caution.

Roycemore Day was so much fun. We had an all-school assembly to show our Roycemore spirit and then went out to the field where we all had our picture taken by a DRONE above us!!

BOOK FAIR : The Roycemore Book Fair will take place on Monday October 7-Friday October 11. This is a wonderful place to buy books for your children, early gifts for the holidays, and support the school at the same time. We still need many volunteers to man the fair. Please sign up at https://signup.com/go/qzuZabm If you need childcare while volunteering, you children can go to our Extended Day Care for no charge. Thank you

What's Happening Around Lower School
  1. The 3rd Graders are learning about the human brain and how it works to make us who we are and how we learn. One of the fun activities was making brain helmets.

2. The Fourth Grade earned Flashlight Friday from being leaders during transitions and when just asked. They should be so proud that they earned it so early in the year.

3 Recess can be fun even when it is raining outside. Mrs. Dinelli brought in her parachute and limbo stick!!
Most of these are pictures what you have read above.
