Rootstown Elementary School

Principal’s Message

Dear Rootstown Elementary Families:

I’m so glad that spring is finally around the corner. With the extra hour of daylight as we turned our clocks ahead on March 12th, it’s a little easier to do some fun activities with the family. As we enter the fourth nine weeks and summer break, it is strongly encouraged to support your child’s success by reading with your child every day. Research states that daily reading practice (10-30 minutes depending upon grade level) will continue to strengthen skills in all academic areas.

Student Council Shamrock Grams
The Student Council teamed up with PTA to organize this year’s Shamrock Grams that our students could purchase to send to their friends. Orders were collected, and the Student Council is working hard to get them ready to be delivered on March 17th for St. Patrick’s Day!

Kindergarten Registration
There will be a Kindergarten Parent Orientation on April 13, 2023 from 4-4:30pm in the cafeteria. The teachers, principal and counselor will provide an overview of our kindergarten program as well as answer any questions related to registration and screening.

Please call 330-325-7971 and speak to Mrs. Kelly Ginter to schedule a registration appointment on April 18th and 19th. You will receive a Baseline Screening date for either August 22 or August 23 during registration.

PTA Message
The Rootstown Elementary school PTA has been having a great 2022-2023 year. First, we would like to thank our amazing board: President Deanna Day, Vice President Shannon White, Treasurer Brittany Rodman and Secretary Tessa Brown. We are also thankful for our members, because we couldn’t do it without you.

Most recently the PTA held their spring Easter Candy sale, selling over $10k in products. The PTA will earn around $5K to keep programs running. We graciously thank our Rover Families and community in supporting this fundraiser.

The board and members are currently hard at work, planning our annual spring events for our students: The Father-Daughter dance on April 15th and the Mother-Son event on April 30th. Please be on the lookout for more info soon.

Yearbooks for the 22-23 school year will be going on sale soon this coming spring. Please watch for details.

If you have any questions or would like submit photos from the PTA’s upcoming Spring events, please contact Deanna Day at
