Lower School opening of school information & supply list

Lower School Parents,

The Lower School faculty is looking forward to the start of school. We are all so excited to see you, and especially your children! Don't forget school begins on Tuesday, August 29. On Monday, August 28, we will be having orientation for all students in Grades PK-1. New students in Grades 2-4 will receive a separate email with the a special time for them to individually meet with their teachers. Also all the teachers will be in their rooms from 8:30-10:30 a.m., if you want to drop in and say hello. The Lower School opening of school information includes the orientation times.

    On Friday, August 25, from 4:30-6:00, don't forget the Roycemore Parent Association Back to School Get Together, called "Griffin Gathering."  It should be a lot of fun and a chance for you and your children to connect with the other Roycemore families, enjoy fun activities and taste the delicious food from our new purveyor, HandCut Foods.

    • Fall Athletics - This year we will be fielding three competitive fall sports teams for our Middle Schoolers. They are cross country, soccer, and volleyball. The students do not need to have experience in any of these sports to participate. Any student may participate in cross country and volleyball or cross country and soccer. Schedules are designed so that students will be able to do two sports if desired, and will be forthcoming.

      The first after school volleyball practice and soccer practice will be on August 30. The first cross country after school practice will be on August 31. 

      Being on a team is a wonderful way to meet friends, learn and practice cooperation, teamwork and sportsmanship, get good exercise, and have fun. Hopefully everyone will think about joining a team!

      Go Griffins!
