Dear Roper Families,

We would like to welcome back to school our returning families and extend a heartfelt WELCOME to all the new families to our Roper community. We look forward to a fun and successful 2016-2017 school year!

The Roper PTO is also known as R.O.P.E. (Roper Organization of Parents and Educators) …….. this includes YOU! We need your creativity, we value your opinion and welcome your participation. Research shows that parental involvement in a child’s education is one of the most important factors in raising a student’s self-esteem and academic achievement. It’s easy to get involved and fun too!

R.O.P.E sponsors many events throughout the year. Our fundraising efforts help raise money for:

▪   Read to Succeed incentives                    ▪   Books for the school library

▪   Buses for field trips                                       ▪   Meals for staff during conferences

▪   Upgraded playground equipment       ▪   School Directories

▪   “Buddy” Benches                                            ▪   And much, much more

Each of our families is unique – with it’s own priorities, needs, talents and time constraints. We try to provide as many different opportunities to volunteer as possible. Please join us for our first informational fun night on August 29th to learn more about how you can get involved. We need your ideas and your energy!

Beginning in September, our meetings are held on the second Monday of each month from 7:00pm to 8:00pm. Everyone is welcome and childcare is provided. Please contact any of the R.O.P.E. board members for any questions or ideas that you would like to share.
