The Royal Oak PTA Council and Royal Oak Middle School are sponsoring a five part Parent Workshop Series. You are welcome to attend the entire series or simply the sessions that are of interest to you. The workshops are free. Families with students in grades K-12 are encouraged to participate. The next workshop in the series will be held on November 19, 2015, on the topic “Avoiding Helicopter Parenting (but still be in the airport).” All workshops are at Royal Oak Middle School and begin at 6:00 p.m. For more information, including how to register for the workshops, please click here.

Return Reading Summer Bags

If you find your child's summer reading bag around the house, please make sure you return it. The PTA uses them every summer! I am hearing there are over 100 bags still missing. We want to be able to continue doing the summer reading program so please help by doing your part and turning them back in. Thank you

Congratulations, Mrs. Jackson

Mrs. Jackson was a “WINNER” of the Meemic Scholastic Book Fair Grant in the amount of $100! This will help provide additional classroom resources.
