First, I’d like to remind parents that Roper will have “Moving Up Day!” on Thursday, our last day of school. The purpose of “Moving Up Day!” is to introduce students to their teachers and classmates for next school year. Parents need to know that teachers and administrators have put hours of time and energy into developing these class lists.

We also appreciate the parents who took the time to send in student information in early April as your input also helped in the decision making process.

*Parents are reminded that we will not be looking to make changes to student class lists for next school year over the summer.

Secondly, Roper will have Summer Library on June 1, 8, 15 and July 13, 20, and 27.

Summer Library hours are from 10:00 AM to noon and will feature a guest reader, theme related activities and an opportunity for students to checkout books.

Also, the Lincoln City Library’s “Book-mobile” will be in Roper’s parking lot from 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM on June 10th and 24th, July 8th and 22nd, and Aug. 5th.

This will provide Roper students’ additional times to checkout books. A city library card will be needed to checkout books from the “Book-mobile”.

And lastly, I’d like to take the time to thank parents for working with us and helping to make this a very special school year. Your support has been vital, and because of it, our students have been successful. A special “shout out!” to the Roper PTO for all they have done to support the students and staff at Roper. You are truly amazing!

As always, we thank you for your support…

Have a great summer!

Gooooooooooooooooo Rockets!

Our priority is on student learning, insuring every student is challenged to achieve or exceed grade level district and state expectations. We accept no limits on the learning potential of any child.
Roper is organized into grade level instructional teams: Preschool through fifth grade. Staff works closely with parents, as we know that a strong parent, school relationship is critical to ensure student success.

Our School Improvement goals are…

  1. All students will improve achievement in mathematical problem solving.
  2. All students will improve achievement in reading comprehension.

As A Professional Learning Community, We Envision A School In Which Staff…

  • Collaborates, shares and accepts responsibility for stakeholders
  • Adapts, changes, grows, provides leadership and learns together
  • Sets high expectations for all students and staff
  • Partners with community to meet educational and emotional needs of all students
  • Implements instructional practices that are data-driven and research-based
  • Is reflective and strategic about growing toward cultural proficiency
  • Celebrates accomplishments, growth and success

Parents and students can work hard to achieve these goals by…

  • Working closely with their child’s teachers.
  • Providing an area for daily study that is quiet and free of distractions.
  • Most importantly… parents can help by reading with their child daily!

Roper offers art, music, physical education, technology and library media as specialty areas and we are proud of our strong parent, school relationships.

We work hard to provide a safe and orderly environment. With the building project that is taking place during this school year, it will be imperative that parents help to take extra safety precautions when dropping off and picking up their children. Roper staff is visible afterschool to help ensure a safe student dismissal.

We promote a safe, orderly and respectful environment, which promotes high levels of student engagement. Honoring the diversity and unique talents of our students is important as Roper has a high number of students from other cultures speaking fifteen different languages at home other than English.

The staff and students at Roper welcome you to visit our school.
