At Royerton, we focus on more than just the 4R's. In cooperation with parents and community, we are dedicated to providing students the opportunity to become responsible, reliable, receptive, respectful, resourceful, and ready for the future. As you read about Royerton Elementary, you will see why parents are anxious for their children to be a part of our Royerton family.
Our next PTO meeting is Thursday, April 10th, at 6:30 p.m. in the library. PTO is a great way to join other parents and get involved at Royerton Elementary. Childcare is provided.
DEAR PARENTS OF 3RD THROUGH 5TH GRADE STUDENTS:
Spring ISTEP+ Testing will begin the week of April 28th at Royerton Elementary. The ISTEP on-line testing window that is assigned by the state is from Monday, April 28th through Tuesday, May 13th. Third grade will take the ISTEP test on April 29th through Friday, May 2nd, and fourth and fifth grades will take the ISTEP test from Monday, May 5th through Tuesday, May 12th.
Studies have shown that students do much better on standardized tests when they test with their peers. When students are absent and need to complete make-up testing, there is usually a substantial reduction in the testing results. Please make every effort to have your child in attendance during the days of testing and try to avoid scheduling any outside appointments.
Here are some things that you, as parents, can do to help your child with the test:
1. It is very important that your child is at school every day during the testing. Research has shown that students do not perform as well when they are required to take the test in make-up sessions.
2. Make certain that your child gets plenty of rest before and during the testing period.
3. Please try to be sure that, on testing days, your child gets a good nutritious breakfast.
Thank you for your help and cooperation, and please feel free to call with any questions.
Hello Royerton Families!
Spring seems to finally be arriving which means getting outside and enjoying the fresh air and getting some exercise. The F.I.T. Club will be resuming on Saturday, April 26th, at 10:00 a.m. We will walk around the playground area if the weather is nice or we will walk inside the building if the weather isnít cooperative. The Kidz Marathon will be here soon so this will be a great opportunity for students to log miles. I really hope to see many families join us and please remember that students are not to be dropped off and must be accompanied by an adult family member.
