RO Public Library Summer Reading Program Presentation
The Royal Oak Public Library will be sending a staff member here on Tuesday to discuss their Summer Reading Programs with our students.
Professional Learning Morning
*This is our last Late Start of the School Year!
Field day will be held this Thursday, May 25th at Upton Elementary. This year we will have TWO sessions for field day :
Session 1 = 8:45 - 11:00 AM for DK - 2nd Grade
Session 2 = 12:45 - 3:00 PM for 3rd - 5th Grade
Students in both sessions will rotate through 7 stations, each lasting for 15 minutes with their homeroom classrooms and teachers. At the end of the final station students will gather at the Tug-O-War station for a closing ceremony that includes popsicles (Thank you Upton PTA!) and a Staff vs. 2nd Grade or Staff vs. 5th grade show down.
In order for Field Day to be a success, we need your help:

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. A bag of food will be put in your child's locker for take home on Fridays. 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, fill out the form below and mail it to the board office at 800 Devillen, Royal Oak, MI 48073, or just hit submit on this form. Please be sure to indicate on the form 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.
