September News

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year at Royal Oaks Elementary!

We will have over 600 students ranging from 2 ½ year olds to fifth graders that will begin their new school year September 5, 7, or 11!  If this is your first year at Royal Oaks, we especially welcome you!  If your child has attended Royal Oaks in the past, welcome back!

I am looking forward to seeing each of you and partnering with you throughout the year to create the best education possible for your child(ren)!  One of the best parts of being a principal is getting to know the students!  I will continue to be seen in classrooms, hallways, the lunchroom, at recess, and other places so that I can visit with the children and observe their learning.  Children will receive a bookmark and a “Happy Birthday from your Principal” pencil on their birthday.  From October through June, student work will be displayed on “The Principal’s Board” which is located in the hallway outside of the office.  I look forward to the first day of school has to meet our new students and reconnect with students that were at Royal Oaks last year. 

Royal Oaks Elementary School has a very dedicated staff, and we focus on the learning of every child.  A “Who Are We?” bulletin board is located in the hallway right outside of the office.  At Open House and all of September, you will find our staff baby or elementary pictures with a few clues about each of us.  See if you can guess who we are!!

If you would like to contact me to share information and/or ask a questions(s), you can email me at: or call: 651-425-4703.  Please leave a detailed message if I am not available.  Visiting in person will also work and to be sure that I am available, it is best if possible to schedule a time so that I can put it on my calendar.  If you stop in to see me, I may be in a meeting, not in the building, observing a teacher, reading to a classroom, and so on.  Home-school communication is VERY important so please communicate with your child's teacher when you have concerns and/or me.  We are a team!

If you have any questions about this, please contact me:

via email: or by phone: 651-425-4703.
