Royal Oak Schools: A Community of Excellence
Week of 10.11.15
Dress for the weather!
Remember to label everything.
Fun Run was a tremendous success!
Thank you for your generosity in support of the Fun Run. We could not have had a successful event without the parent volunteers and leadership for this event. You made it a great day for kids and staff.
I look forward to seeing the total donation amount after the window closes this week. We have exceeded our goal thanks to your kindness. Yes, you can still donate.
Donations are still being processed and the drawing for prizes will be completed on Friday morning.
Students benefit from the funds raised and we are excited to continue supporting students and their learning.

You cannot change your home address in the system. You must go to the Board Office.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. We have computers available for parents to use. Thank you.
Q & A
1. Can my child have peanut butter in the lunch room?
Yes. Nut and tree nut free applies to classroom snack time. It applies to each classroom. Please carefully read the labels. If the classroom snack item contains nuts or tree nuts it will be returned to the locker/backpack.
2. How do I sign up for conferences?
Teachers choose their method of sign up. Contact the teacher for the sign up method. Conferences are by appointment only on 11/23, 12/1, or 12/3. They run from 4-7 pm. We aim for 100% participation (we want to see every child represented).
3. I live on McDonald and my driveway is blocked during drop off and pick up. Can you help me?
Yes. Please do not block our neighbor driveways at drop off and pick up. Thank you.
The weekly emails will now be sent every two weeks.
