Meet Your Child's Teacher
Our RO Team is really looking forward to welcoming families back into our school for our annual "Get Acquainted Nights." This is a chance for parents or caregivers to see our classrooms and meet the teacher(s) that will be supporting your child's progress all year. Each evening begins at 6:30pm, in your child's classroom, on the following date:
Grade 3 - Thursday, September 8 (Parents AND third graders invited to this event. This is more of an 'open house style' with the intent of better orientating our newest students and their families to our school).
Grade 4 - Wednesday, September 7 (Parents/Guardians Only)
Grade 5 - Wednesday, September 21 (Parents/Guardians Only)
This evening is entirely about your student's classroom experience. For more information pertaining to our whole school, you are welcome to watch our RO Orientation Videos, made by Mr. Getchell and Mr. Aries, on our homepage or linked here.
At RO, we begin every day with a morning announcement
from Mr. Getchell or Mr. Aries and conclude with The Pledge of Allegiance.

Seeking RO School Council Members
If you are interested in joining the RO School Council, please email Mr. Getchell this week. Our school council is comprised of a balance of parents and staff members, with Mr. Getchell as the chair. Our school council is also looking for a community member (a member without a child at RO) but living or working in Easton. Our school council meets once a month, usually the third Tuesday of the month, at 6:00pm. These meetings are virtual. Our school council advises the principal on school matters and helps develop the goals and action steps of our school improvement plan. We look for members each year.

RO Video Orientation
Below please find a link to help you navigate all that is "RO." These videos are intended for parents/guardians, particularly our new third grade families or any new family to our school.
Once you click on the link, you will see various areas of interest. These headings include: Our core beliefs as a school, arrival and dismissal procedures, safety, teaching and learning, communication, school supplies, summer learning, homework, etc. When you click on a heading of interest, you will be presented with a brief video providing information on that topic. These videos are anywhere from 3 - 10 minutes long.
We do not expect you to watch ALL of these videos in one sitting. The intent of this orientation is to provide families with a convenient reference point throughout the year as questions arise. This link is also posted on our website homepage for your convenience.
If you are driving your student to RO for the first time, please watch the 'Arrival and Dismissal' video ahead of your first drop off or pick up. Thank you.
Please click the link below for our video orientation. These videos play better on a laptop or desktop.
