Hello RO families. It was wonderful (and emotional) for all of us to see so many of you out today during the Royals Parade. It reminds us of how special our students and families are and how much we miss you. if you have any pictures or videos of the parade including ones of your children and their signs please send them to We were so busy waving ,smiling (shedding a few tears) and calling out to say hello that we didn’t get many pictures. A special shout out to our SD60 bus driver Melissa who was such a good sport and navigated us expertly and safely. Yes, we have so much to be thankful for this Thursday!

Terrific Tuesday – RO Rocks!

This week we encourage families to continue looking for the beautifully painted rocks hidden around our community. We ask that rocks found on our school grounds be left for others to find and enjoy. Thank you to all the students and staff who participated in this Earth Day Challenge and helped to spread messages of kindness and hope. RO does rock!
