IMPORTANT FIRST DAY INFO

LOCATORS AND STUDENT SCHEDULES

On Tuesday evening, students (if families have completed the Aeries process online) will be able to access the Aeries system for important scheduling information. Upon arrival at school Wednesday, students (by grade-level) can also view lists (physically posted on campus) to see their teacher and room number to report to for 1st period.


Lists will be on the following campus buildings:


  • 9th Grade - Library
  • 10th Grade - 5 Building
  • 11th Grade - 6 Building
  • 12th Grade - MPR

  • Teacher's Aides & Office Practice - Meet at Library during the assigned period



Once in 1st Period, teachers will distribute students' full class chedules for Periods 1-6 (0 and 7 periods included if applicable) for this Fall.

Please refer to the email this Bulletin link was sent in for Counseling Department schedule, availability, and information regarding student schedules.



AERIES PORTAL

Before the first day, families need to complete registration within the Aeries system. The Aeries System is our primary tool of communication for families. It is required that all families complete the data confirmation in the Aeries portal before the start of school. Click here for directions to complete this process.


Logging in and monitoring your student's grades can all be done from the Aeries portal. The importance of this cannot be communicated enough. Parents and students will be able to better partner with the teachers by monitoring students' grades, attendance, and other important information within Aeries.



AUP STICKER - ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY

It is also crucial that families complete the Acceptable Use Policy within the Aeries set up. By electronically signing this agreement, students are verified to utilize school technology tools (such as the Chromebook carts in classrooms and Library computers). Students with AUP on file also get a sticker to be placed on their student IDs to validate their use. For students who did not get this at Registration, please contact the Counseling office.

STUDENT ID CARDS

PLEASE NOTE: It is mandatory for all students to carry their ID Card with them on campus at ALL times. If they missed their day to take their picture, we will be having a make-up picture day on Wednesday, August 28th. O'Connor Bros will be here in the GYM Foyer from 7:30am to 4:00pm. Students can go in before school, during lunch and after school. You can still order pictures as well.

FOOD DELIVERIES FOR STUDENTS

Attention Parents and Students:

Please be aware that food deliveries from outside vendors such as Door Dash, Uber Eats and Grub Hub will not be allowed to deliver food to the Royal campus unless it is during our scheduled lunch time. Students may not leave class to receive food deliveries. Food may only be delivered to the front office and not delivered over the fence or through the gates. The office will not accept fountain drinks or any drink that does not have a sealed lid. The student's name must be clearly labeled on the food item. Failure to follow these guidelines will jeopardize any food delivery services at Royal High School.


ST. ROSE OF LIMA PARKING LOT

Attention Parents and Students: Please do not use the St. Rose of Lima Parking Lot to drop off and pick up your students. They have asked us to relay that their parking lot has had very heavy traffic and their parents can't get in to pick up their students from their own school. You can meet your students off of Arcane in the back of the school, on Hudspeth to the East of the school, or in either parking lot. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

THIS WEEK: College of Wooster

Click here for Admissions Info

Click here for Tuition & Financial Aid Info

Enrollment: 2,016

Acceptance Rate: 55%


DETAILS: Instead of teaching students what to think, The College of Wooster focuses on teaching students how to do it. From the first freshman seminar to the final day when seniors hand in their theses, the college paves each student’s path to independence. The emphasis here is on global perspectives, mentored research, and the heritage that stems from its origin as a college founded by Scottish Presbyterians. The one-on-one attention from faculty makes Wooster an intellectual refuge in the rural countryside of Ohio. “Mentorship and collaboration are pervasive across campus,” says a history major. “Students are constantly interacting with their peers, faculty advisors, and other community members in an effort to gather diverse perspectives and motivate their learning.”


What goes on behind the facades of Wooster’s attractive buildings is more impressive than the structures themselves. The required First-Year Seminar in Critical Inquiry, limited to 15 students per section, introduces students to intensive writing, critical thinking, and interdisciplinary study. Recent section topics include The Drugs We Drink: Biological and Societal Perspectives; Heating Up the Planet: Response to a Catastrophe; and The History of the Future. In addition to the first-year seminar, three semesters of Independent Study, and six cross-discipline courses, Wooster mandates courses in writing, global and cultural perspectives, religious perspectives, and quantitative reasoning, foreign language proficiency, and seven to nine courses in the student’s major.


The College of Wooster is nationally recognized for its commitment to mentored research and its international focus. Wooster students are proud to be Fighting Scots and independent thinkers. And as a political science major explains, the college’s distinctive Independent Study requirement actively shapes both the individual student experience and the campus atmosphere: “Having that big project on the horizon from the day you enroll changes the way you engage with your education, and I think that brings an element of intensity, dedication, and commitment to the academics at Wooster.”

College of Wooster Student Perspective: “Classes frequently require collaborative work to complete assignments, and students often work together in a relaxed environment that focuses simultaneously on building connections as well as growing academically.”
