Halloween at RO

Students and staff are welcome to wear a costume to school on Monday. This is optional. If your student is not comfortable wearing a costume to school, no problem at all. There will be staff and students not in a costume.

If your student does wear a costume, we ask that the costume worn to school does not include a mask. For safety reasons, we need to account for all students at all times and we need to see their faces to do so.

We also ask that the costume is school appropriate (no fake weapons, fake blood, or inappropriate words for school written on clothing).

We are not planning a Halloween Parade on Monday at school. There will be classroom based Halloween-themed activities. We know this is an exciting day for many of our students and we want to enjoy the day at school while keeping our focus on teaching and learning and having a relatively calm, normal school day. Thank you.

Classrooms at RO work to earn pROud paws throughout the month by showing our agreements with our actions and words. One of the pROud paw raffle prizes is a fall nature walk with Mr. Getchell. This is Ms. Schwarz' fifth grade winners on their walk.

Little things can make a big, positive differences at our school, in our homes and in our community. All students at RO wrote one way they can make a difference and these uplifting messages are displayed across the back wall of our cafeteria. Above are a couple of samples.

Student Activity Fee

In order to help defray/cover the costs of transportation and entrance/registration fees for enrichment activities, the Easton Public School system has been collecting activity fees. Because of these fees, our district is also able to send our students to Sheep Pasture/NRT for enriching outdoor learning throughout the year. It is a valuable and unique learning opportunity for our students.

The elementary fee structure is $45.00 for grades 1-6.

For your convenience, payment can be made through the following website: If you are only able to pay by check, please make the check payable to Easton Public Schools and in the memo, please indicate it is for the student activity fee and include your child’s name. We do not accept any cash payments. Please ensure you do not pay more than once. Unfortunately, the system does not prevent this.

Please do NOT use the MySchoolBucks app. It is not functioning properly at this time.

Please note: Students who are on free/reduced lunch are exempt from this fee.
