November Message from Dr. Risius
Posted on 11/04/2019
Dr. Susan RisiusDear Parents,

Thank you for attending our Parent Teacher Conferences on October 28 and 30!! This is a very important time for you to visit with your child’s teachers!! Our Spring Conferences are Monday, March 2 and Thursday, March 5.

Thank you to PTA for sponsoring the Scholastic Book Fair during Conferences as this is a great way to have our students/families purchase books at a very reasonable price. Thank you, to the parents who helped with the book fair. Your volunteering is greatly appreciated!

Because of Election Day on Tuesday, November 5 there will be no school for District 833 students and staff.

We hope to see you at our November 8 Fall Party (6:00-8:00 pm) sponsored by our PTA! Thanks ahead of time for donating food and/or volunteering at this fun event!

As you know, November-March in Minnesota can be very cold!! To be sure that your child is dressed appropriately, please remember that children will go outside every day unless the temperature is below zero and/or the wind child is 10 below zero. Please plan to have students go outside every day as we make this determination right before the first recess at 10:45. This means students should always come with winter gear: winter coat, gloves/mittens/, hat, scarf, snow pants and boots (when there is snow OR just to stay warm!).

Students at Royal Oaks and across our district do not have school on Wednesday, November 27 as teachers have a work day. Thanksgiving Break will be Thursday, November 28 and Friday, November 29. We look forward to having your child back at Royal Oaks on Monday, December 2!!
