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 example of this would be our Food Drive. A wonderful example 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 Food Drive, and 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 4486 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 and all the support that you demonstrate daily to our community. Happy Thanksgiving!
THANKS for GIVING,
FROM CENTER CHAPEL FOOD PANTRY
Thank you to the students of Royerton Elementary and the Student Council Representatives for collecting thousands of food items that will be used to feed hundreds in our community. We are extremely grateful for organizations, like yours, that help our ministry. What a blessing your donations are to our food pantry.
Center Chapel Food Pantry
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 October. Congratulations boys and girls!

With the cold weather here, please take a few moments in the morning to make sure your children are dressed appropriately for the weather. We have students coming to school without jackets and long pants and some wearing flip flops. Close-toed shoes, long pants, and a jacket or coat are necessary with the colder temperatures. If the weather is acceptable, the students will go outside for recess and may also need hats and gloves.
