Unlocking the Mystery of Reading

Growing up my favorite books were mystery novels. I absolutely loved Nancy Drew novels. However, it took a little time before I actually found books I enjoyed. As a young reader, I didn't believe reading was as fun as television or video games. Reading was work and challenging at times.

However, finding a book to read and connecting to a love of reading at an early age is so important. As students continue in their learning, it is so important that they are reading for enjoyment and selecting books of their own interests.

If your child is struggling to find enjoyment in reading or hasn't found their favorite book, I want to encourage you to reach out to your child's teacher or our Librarian, Kelly Hartman. We want to help you foster a love of reading in your child.

Stay tuned for information next week on another opportunity to read together with your child.

Note from the Nurse

It is important to remember that if your child has a fever over 100 degrees, he or she must stay out of school until fever free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medications. In addition, students with diarrhea illnesses must stay home until they are diarrhea free without diarrhea-suppressing medications for at least 24 hours. A student may return to school when they have been free from vomiting for 24 hours without medication. When your child is ill, please contact the school (972-617-3523) to let us know he or she won’t be attending that day.

Morning Drop Off Reminder

For the safety of our students, morning drop off is in the back of the campus until 7:45 am. Students arriving by car should be dropped off in the back of the building. Staff will be available to assist students as they exit cars and enter the building. Please do not stop in front of the building to drop off students. You must drop off at the back of the building. Students may not walk in the front doors by themselves. Parents wishing to walk students into the building will need to park in the front and will be allowed to walk the students into the foyer, but students will walk to the cafeteria and their classrooms by themselves. If your child needs extra assistance, we will have several staff members available. The tardy bell will ring at 7:45. Students arriving after 7:45 will need to be escorted into the building and signed in as tardy. Parents will need to park in the front of the building.

Colors for Caring - Team Madison

ROE will be celebrating Colors for Caring on February 12. This month we would like to invite students to wear yellow or their favorite sports jersey in honor of 4th grader Madison. Madison is an amazing athlete and a current student at ROE recently diagnosed with cancer. We want to show Madison how much we love her and are cheering her on in her fight.
