Community Meeting Image District Holds Meeting on January 4 to Discuss Future of Facilities
On Wednesday, January 4, the North Royalton Board of Education held a special meeting at North Royalton High School to discuss with residents the decisions that need to be made regarding the district’s facilities and future of educational learning in North Royalton. With more than 200 people in attendance, two plans were presented to residents. Plan A is to place the same bond issue that went before voters in November 2016 on the May 2, 2017 ballot. This is a 3.1 (true tax impact) mill for a new elementary school, complete high school renovation and addition, middle school updates, and repairs and long-term facility maintenance. Plan B is to evaluate what to do if the issue is not placed on the ballot or if the issue fails.

North Royalton Family has Wish Granted for Son by Make-A-Wish North Royalton Family has Wish Granted for Son by Make-A-Wish
North Royalton residents Jocelyn and Charles Stella are the parents of four children. Their oldest child, Charlie, is 5 ½ years old and suffers from numerous acquired disorders, such as Spastic Quadriparesis Cerebral Palsy, Refractory Epilepsy, Secondary Dystonia, Dysphagia and Cortical Vision Impairment. Last summer, the Stella family reached out to the local chapter of Make-a-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana with a special request of installing an inclusive play area on the grounds of Royal View Elementary by the current playground. At first, a “playground cruiser” was the only piece of equipment to be added to the current school playground. However, after a year of additional planning, a complete inclusive playground will be installed at the elementary school thanks to Make-A-Wish, North Royalton City Schools, and Snider Recreation. 
Back to School At Royal View

Royal View's New Look


When the school year ended at Royal View last June, we said goodbye to 390 students in grades 1 through 4. When our doors reopened on Aug. 19th, the building had been transformed into a Pre-K to 4th Grade facility housing nearly 500 students. Our phenomenal summer cleaning crew deserves the credit, as they worked tirelessly to make sure the transition of students and staff from the ECC to their new home at Royal View was smooth and seamless. This was no small task, as the building transformation resulted in no less than 19 classrooms having a different staff member in it from the time we closed the doors in June for summer vacation.

Welcome to Lil' Bears Preschool


Your child begins their learning years in an environment that is warm, caring and geared specifically to the needs of the young learner. Our staff is eagerly awaiting the arrival of your children. The staff continues their goal of providing an academic and social environment that encompasses high expectations for the children’s learning. Preschool is often a child’s first formal learning experience. Our goal at Lil’ Bears is to make your experience with us smooth and welcoming.

Each new school year, there are many emotions that children experience as they begin this new adventure. They are excited and scared and worried and thrilled. Those emotions can be mixed up and hard to sort through. Please feel free to stop in with any questions and concerns you may have. What may seem like “old hat” to us feels very new to you. Everyone here Lil’ Bears will be more than willing to assist you in any way.

Again, welcome. I look forward to sharing a year of wonder and excitement with you and your child.
