Good evening – This is Principal Tim Muggy calling with four (4) important messages from Roper Elementary School.
First, I’d like to remind parents that Tuesday, August 30th is an early release date. On Tuesday, August 30th – all Roper students will be dismissed at 1:33 PM so that teachers can participate in Professional Learning Communities. Also – A reminder to our Early Childhood families that Early Childhood students do not have school on PLC Tuesdays.
Secondly, Roper’s PTO will sponsor an Outdoor Movie Night on Friday, September 23 at dusk.
The movie to be shown will be “Zootopia!” which is rated PG.
Parents are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs and snacks to help enjoy the movie. Movie night is an event for the whole family.
**Students must be accompanied by an adult to attend.
Thirdly, The Roper Color Run is set for Saturday, October 1st at 9:00 AM. This year’s Color Run will have a Pokémon theme and Roper families are invited to join in on the fun. Please consider registering for the Roper Color Run today!
And lastly, I want to take the time to thank parents for helping to make the start of the school year the success that it was! Partnering together, we can do great things for our children!
As always, we thank you for your support!
Roper Mission Statement
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…
- All students will improve achievement in mathematical problem solving.
- 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.
Tim Muggy, Proud Principal
Roper Elementary School
