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.

Counselor Corner: M.O.P. Program
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 reads the winners on the announcements each month and the students are issued a small reward. Pictured below are the winners from February. Congratulations, boys and girls!
IMOVE and IPAINT
During the week of the first part of ISTEP, P.E., Music, and Art classes had a name change – P.E. and Music became IMOVE and Art became IPAINT. Both of these initiatives were developed by Mrs. Eichhorn, Mr. Fant, and Mrs. Schwer to help our students have fun learning activities during the week of ISTEP testing. All activities in IMOVE and IPAINT correlated thematically together. Above are pictures that showcase the movement activities that occurred during IMOVE. The cafeteria began a makeover during this week, while Mrs. Schwer led our students and staff in creating a mural based upon the work of Romero Britto during IPAINT. Each grade level had a special task that helped bring the full mural to fruition. Please enjoy the pictures below depicting the process. Thank you to all the students and staff for their participation! Special thanks to Mrs. Eichhorn, Mr. Fant, and Mrs. Schwer for leading the charge. It was a truly wonderful experience for all who were involved!
