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.
This time of year, we give thanks for the many blessings and freedoms that we enjoy each day. At Royerton Elementary, we are thankful for our students and the families that they represent. It is a blessing to be able to work with such fine children each day. We not only have the opportunity to teach them every day, but we have the opportunity to learn from them as well! The most recent examples of this would be our Veterans Day Program and our Food Drive. Two wonderful examples of our students leading the way and showing what it means to have a heart of THANKSGIVING. Thank you to those who participated in our Veterans Day Program and the opportunity that we had in saying THANK YOU to our veterans. Also thank you to our Student Council for sponsoring our annual food drive to help support the Center Chapel Food Pantry. The students of Royerton Elementary and their families contributed SO much! We were able to collect 3341 food items to donate to the Center Chapel Food Pantry for families in need. This broke last year’s record!
Thank you to students, their families, faculty and staff for your caring participation in the above-mentioned events and all the support that you demonstrate daily to our community. Happy Thanksgiving!
THANKS for GIVING,
The educational process requires a daily period of instruction, classroom participation, learning experiences, and daily study in order to reach the goal of maximum educational benefits for all of our students. When students are frequently absent or tardy, this process is disrupted. The benefit of daily instruction is lost and cannot be made up, even with make-up work. Attendance/tardiness is monitored closely at Royerton Elementary School. Students need to be in their classrooms by 7:50 a.m. each day or they will be considered tardy. If you are dropping off your children and they need to eat breakfast, we do start serving breakfast at 7:30 a.m. Please call the school by 8:30 a.m. if your child is not going to attend school with the reason for his/her absence. If we do not receive a phone call regarding the reason for your child’s absence, you will receive a phone call through Honeywell Instant Alert by 9:00 a.m. each day letting you know that your child is not in school for the day. If your child has a doctor’s appointment, please be sure to get a doctor’s excuse for his/her absence as well.
Our next PTO meeting is Thursday, February 13th, at 6:30 p.m. in the library. PTO is a great way to get involved at Royerton Elementary. Childcare is provided.
LOST AND FOUND
We have lots of items in our Lost and Found. Please come and look to find if anything belongs to you. Our Lost and Found is located near the gymnasium. Please be sure to check the table out for any lost items before Christmas Break because we will donate unclaimed items to a charitable organization.
Congratulations to our Spell Bowl team! The Royerton Spell Bowl team came in first in our division at the regional tournament at Randolph Southern. Thank you for your hard work and thank you to Mrs. Alley and Miss Guerrero for being sponsors.

This year we had a group of choir students tackle the extra practice time and effort that it takes to make an audition recording for the state Honors Choir. I’d like to commend those students for their extra effort and ambition! Auditions were submitted to a committee and participants were selected from all of the recordings submitted. I’d like to congratulate Johnathan Chimbanda, Ashleigh Brelage, and Anna Cardemon for being selected to represent Royerton and Circle the State Area 4A at the state convention this January. We are so proud of you! It is a special treat that Mrs. Morris will be the conductor of the State Honors choir this year, so we will enjoy rehearsing with her.
I asked each participant what motivated them to try out for the Honors Choir. Johnathan Chimbanda said, “I wanted to follow my dreams. I wanted to take the right path and God was showing me the path.” Anna Cardemon shared,”My sister tried out for Honors choir and told me all about it. She said it was fun and I thought it was cool.” Ashleigh Brelage confirmed, “I really like singing and my brother inspired me.”
