Middle/Upper School Preview - 6:30-7:30pm - Library
For students currently in grades 4, 7 and 8 and their parents.
Current 4th grade families will learn about Middle School Advisory, the P3 program, House and will then meet each of the core Middle School teachers to hear more about the Middle School Experience!

7th & 8th grade families are invited to come hear about what it is like to be in Roycemore's Upper School. In addition to going through a short rotation of key academic classes, students will hear from some of our Upper School students who have been "lifers" at the school and what their experience is like continuing from Roycemore's Middle School to its Upper School.

It's not too soon to plan for next year! 

Roycemore library will host author Lindsay Currie on Tuesday, October 10, 12:30-1:30pm

Parents are welcome to join us as author Linday Currie visits the school to talk about her book "The Peculiar Incident on Shady Street." After moving to chilly gray Chicago from warm sunny Florida, a preteen overcomes fear to solve a century-old mystery.

It's a great mood-setter for Halloween!
