We also want to extend a special welcome to all of our new Root Rockets who will be attending Root Elementary for the first time. Please know that my door is always open to you if you have questions, concerns, or just want to say "hello."

We look forward to seeing all Root Rockets and starting the new school year!

With Root Pride,

Jason Edwards


New Root Upgrades!

We have a couple new upgrades that we are very proud to announce. Safety is always a priority and we are thankful that the Fayetteville Public School has provided an upgraded security camera system that has added cameras around the outside and inside of the building.

Second the FPS District has added new floors throughout the hallways and cafeteria. This hardwood floor look gives Root Elementary School a fresh new look.
