Rockets Report

August 2022

Welcome From Ms. Marsh

Dear Rocket Families,

On behalf of the staff at Royal Oaks School of the Arts, I am happy to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year! We are looking forward to an amazing year and are excited about partnering with you to ensure our Rockets achieve their highest potential. We are eager to have students in our classrooms and hallways, filling the building with energy and enthusiasm for learning.

Royal Oaks is proud to continue celebrating our distinction as an A+ School of the Arts. Our teachers have specialized training through the A+ Schools Network in order to weave the arts into every aspect of a child’s learning. It is our mission to use the arts as an inspiration for engagement, creativity, collaboration, and lifelong learning. At Royal Oaks School of the Arts we have talented and dedicated teachers who spend hours planning and creating learning experiences that will bring energy and excitement into the classroom, making learning truly fun and meaningful for our scholars. We utilize a hands-on approach to teaching and look for natural ways to bring the arts into every classroom.

Your feedback is important to us in achieving our goal as a School of Excellence. Therefore, we solicit your suggestions for school improvement and encourage you to stop by, join in, and share your ideas with us at any time. We look forward to an exciting new year of continued collaboration where our motto is – “Creativity sparks engagement. Art ignites learning.”

I am honored to serve as the principal of Royal Oaks School of the Arts and it is truly a privilege to be part of a community where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. Please feel free to contact me any time at 704-260-6310 or at .

Once again, welcome back Rocket families! Let’s make this the BEST year at Royal Oaks School of the Arts!

Bus Rider and Car Rider Information

If your bus transportation request was received prior to July 28th, your child should receive a bus pass at Open House. Requests received after July 28th may take up to 10 days to process. If your child's bus pass is incorrect or you need to request bus transportation, you can do so at Open House with Mrs. Rossi, Assistant Principal.

If your child will be a car rider, you will need a car rider tag to display during daily pick-up starting on the first day of school. You can get your car rider tags at Open House with Mrs. Johnston, Assistant Principal. If your child will participate in after school clubs, you will need a car rider tag for pick-up. During daily pick-up, if you do not have a car rider tag displayed, you will be asked to bring your license or photo ID into the main office to verify.
