Welcome to 
Royerton Elementary




Due to a day of school that was cancelled due to weather, Delaware Community Schools will now be in session on Monday, February 15th.   Thank you!





The first administration of ISTEP+ Testing for third, fourth, and fifth graders will begin the week of February 29th.  Royerton Elementary faculty and staff have not only worked to prepare your child for the standards that will be addressed on the test, but we have done our best to prepare them for the fortitude it takes to do their personal best.  Here are some things that we can do together to best prepare for it. 



·         No homework will be assigned during the week of testing.

·    The remaining instructional time in our school day will be “structured, but fun educational activities” to give students the opportunity to relax from their testing.    Breaks will be given between sessions, giving students an opportunity to refocus their efforts for the next task at hand. 

·    Encourage the students to just do their personal best!



·         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. Please make every effort to have your child in attendance during the days of testing and try to avoid scheduling any outside appointments.

·    Make certain that your child gets plenty of rest before and during the testing period.

·    Please try to be sure that, on testing days, your child gets a good nutritious breakfast. 

·    Encourage your child to just do his/her personal best!



·         Listen to instructions carefully.

·    Read closely and think about what is being asked of you.

·    Relax and just do your personal best!


Royerton Elementary did excellent on the 2014-15 ISTEP+ test, with top-notch scores!  Based upon these scores, Royerton Elementary ranked 32nd among the 1043 Indiana public elementary schools.                              (Source: www.schooldigger.com)


ISTEP+ testing is something that we want our students to take seriously, but we do not want them to feel stressed about the test.  We are extremely proud of RES students for giving their personal best every day in all they do – that is what truly matters!   Thank you to our students, parents, faculty, and staff for successfully working as a team each and every day. 



Mr. Marshall - Principal 

Mrs. McGuire – Assistant Principal





Royerton Student Council will be having their Candy Gram fundraiser soon.  Due to state regulations, the Candy Grams can only be distributed on two days.  Students will place orders and pay for candy grams ($1.00 each) beginning on Monday, February 8th and continue through Friday, February 12th.  Candy Grams will then be delivered to students on Wednesday (10th) and Friday (12th).  Candy Grams are ordered before school from 7:30 to 7:45 and during lunchtimes.

At Royerton Elementary School, we recognize students for positive behavior.  Each month our classroom teachers nominate one student who has followed the M.O.P. Rules for the entire month.  Miss Conti announces the winners on the announcements each month and the students are issued a small reward.  Pictured below are the winners from December.  Congratulations boys and girls!
