Middle School Overnight trip builds teamwork, strengthens relationships

At the end of the week, our Middle School students and staff will travel to the Loyola University Retreat & Ecology Campus (LUREC) in Woodstock. The group leaves school Thursday morning and returns Friday afternoon.

The vision for this year's Middle School overnight embraces Community, one of Roycemore's five core values. Griffins will volunteer in the campus' working gardens, do some low ropes team building, and reflect about what it means to be a defining member of our Roycemore community, Chicago and beyond. Because we want students to interact with each other and not with their tech, cell phones, tablets, etc. don't get to come!

The Middle School Overnight is an annual tradition that offers a variety of outdoor team-building experiences early in the school year to help students (and faculty) get to know each other better.

Join the Roycemore Family Association for coffee next Tuesday morning, October 3

All Roycemore parents are welcome to stop by in the main foyer for coffee and conversation after dropping their students off for school from about 8:15am next Tuesday. Our guest will be Head of School Adrianne Finley Odell. Come for refreshments, hear from our Head and talk to fellow parents - stay as long as your schedule allows. Email rfa@roycemoreschool.org if you've got any questions. We hope to see you there!
