Hello Royal Oak Families,

To recognize all the work the teachers, administrators and support staff at our awesome school, the PAC is planning a Staff Appreciation Luncheon on Thursday, May 30th, 2019!  We invite parents and guardians to say “Thank You for a great year” by contributing food and/or volunteering with the items/duties listed on the perfect potluck site.


For more information and to volunteer or sign up to bring food please click on the link below:


Also on the day of May 30th, if each student can bring one or more flowers from their garden or purchase from the store so we can make beautiful flower arrangements for the table it would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you Royal Oak families for all your support.
