Walk-A-Thon

Perfect weather, amazing volunteers, donations, sponsors and happy, tired students and adults! This year's Walk-A-Thon fundraiser event was a huge success. Students accumulated laps to help raise money for new playground equipment at RCS. Thank you to our PTG members and volunteers. A great time was had by all!

Mindful Drawing Night

During Family Mindful Drawing Night, Mrs. Schwab taught ways of drawing that encouraged relaxing and reducing stress. Drawings were created with pigma .50mm black pens, markers and water colors. Valuing Our Children donated a basket of drawing supplies and books that was raffled off. The Royalston Community School PTG provided refreshments. Materials for this workshop were funded by the Athol-Royalston Education Foundation (AREF).

After School K-2 Garden club

We are excited to be offering an after school garden club. Ms. Hoegen has worked hard writing grants through the Athol-Royalston Education Foundation (AREF) and donating her time to make this six week after school club possible for students in grades K-2. Students are learning about soil, planting, the life cycle of plants and garden safety. Thank you Ms. Hoegen!
