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.

LUNCHES FROM RESTAURANTS
According to our Wellness Policy, competitive foods, such as “fast foods” and other “restaurant-packaged” foods brought to school by students or parents, will not be shared with other students and will be consumed only in areas not visible to the general student population. However, due to the lack of alternate spaces, we ask that you please do not bring in food from restaurants. We also ask this of you for the safety of our students who suffer from severe food allergies. Thank you for your understanding.
Are you retired, between jobs, a college student, a stay-at-home parent, or need extra spending money? Are you looking to make an impact in someone’s life? Substitute teaching may be ideal for you.
