Giant Eagle Apples for Students and Box Tops for Education


Each year the building receives educational rewards from these programs.  The Giant Eagle reward program consists of points from sales during the year that are used to shop in its catalog.  This year, the building received items such as headphones, 1 Mini-Ipad for the mobile cart, disposable covers for headphones, CD player, etc.  The Box Top program provides funds during the year to defray the cost of AR rewards and an educational online license used for remediation.  Thank you to Mrs. Kelli Coffman and Mrs. Lewis for coordinating these programs.  Additionally, thank you for your support all year of these valuable programs.  Please consider collecting these during the summer!

Recycling over the summer


Please recycle your paper here this summer. There are 5 bins off of SR 44 next to Rootstown Middle School for your convenience.  The proceeds benefit the RES PTA, RMS Art and RHS Student Council.

Thank you for your support.

 Dismissal Procedures for Parent Pick-up Students

You must display a placard in the front windshield of your vehicle (passenger side) to enter the loop area at the south entrance of the elementary parking lot. Placards will be given to each parent on Open House night.

The parent pick-up procedures will begin at 2:50 p.m. (This is 5 minutes later than last year).

Placards are transferable to other individuals you designate to use them, but please do so cautiously and sparingly. Please notify the building secretary any time during the year if you lose any one of your cards, so that a new one can be issued.  (Leave it in your glove box for future use.)

Parents will not enter the building to sign their child out in the gym.

Please be patient during the first month of school as we work through this process.


Kindergarten Orientation 2014

Kindergarten parents are invited to an orientation on August 25, 2014, from 5-6 p.m. in your child's classroom.

Reminder to Kindergarten parents: At the beginning of August, we will mail you the scheduled time and day for your child’s KRA test.  Also, this letter will indicate your child’s first full-day of Kindergarten as we will have staggered start dates for Kindergarten during the first week of school.


Class Lists

Class lists for next year will be posted on the west side of the building after 3 p.m. on Friday, August 22, 2014.


Open House for Grades 1-5

All parents and students are invited to our Open House on August 25, 2014, from 6:30-7:30 p.m.  Your child's teacher will have a 15 minute speech at two designated times on this night.  More details about this night will be given in August.  Please feel free to bring school supplies, school fees ($45) and completed emergency medical cards on Open House night.


Have a safe and enjoyable summer!  Please know that if you ever need anything to please contact me via email at or 330-325-7971.
