You are Beautiful!

It was great to see so many families join us for Miniature School night last Thursday.  We have welcomed 63 new students to our school this year and they are all getting settled into their routines at Roycemore.  At many schools, Miniature School night is known as “Back-to-School Night” so in homage to our parents coming “Back-to-School” they had the opportunity to hear what their children heard during our opening...

Maci and the Roycemore Garden

The project started last year in the 4th grade classroom with students making a worm compost and planting seedings in their room.
