What's New in this Bulletin?
2. A BIG thank you so all those who have donated to our *secret* book fair fund! This fund is NOT disclosed to students and will be used to buy those who would like a book, but didn't bring any money. A student from last year came up to me when she saw the posters and said, "Remember when I was crying because I forgot my money at home and you let me buy a book last year?" I have NO memory of this, but it was because of the families who donated to my classroom fund that the kiddo walked away tear-free and with a book.
If you would still like to donate, click HERE. Funds will only be used for book purchases and will be discreetly communicated to students in need.
3. From a ROMS Parent:

BLESSINGS IN A BACKPACK
“Blessings in a Backpack” is a program designed to provide students on the free and reduced lunch program with enough food for three meals a day during the weekends. This program, administered by the Community Foundation of Greater Rochester, is active in Royal Oak Schools. If you agree to take part in this program during the school year, your child will receive a bag filled with food for the weekend. The simple meals may include food like macaroni and cheese, beef ravioli, canned fruit, granola bars, soups, juice and other items. Students will receive a bag every week.
If you would like to have your child participate in this program, please fill out this form. Be sure to indicate if you child has any food allergies. If your child has a food allergy, you as the parent are responsible for checking all food labels when the food arrives home. Royal Oak Schools, as well as Blessings in a Backpack, will not be held responsible for any accidental food allergen exposure.
