The ROE yearbook is a hardcover photo book documenting the 2016-2017 academic year, including back to school events, work in the classroom, student portraits by class, field trips, electives, extracurricular activities like Odyssey of the Mind and Name That Book, and special events like the Fun Run, Movie Night, Book Fairs, and many other fun events.



The yearbook staff invites students, parents, teachers, and staff to submit photos for the yearbook. If you’ve got great photos of school events, we’d like to see them. Help us get as many photos as possible to create a terrific book everyone will want to have.  Please help us include every ROE child in a candid photo this year by submitting photos you take during class activities, field trips, or other ROE events.  You may submit photos directly to the Jostens website at

  • Browse to select the photo(s) you wish to upload, click on “Select My Images.”
  • Enter information about the photo, and provide contact information in case the staff needs additional information.
  • Please include the names of the students in the picture, teacher, as well as grade level and the event where the photo was taken.
  • Click “Upload Chosen Images.”  It’s that easy!  Submit your photos today!

You may also email photos to

Whichever method you use to submit them, please be sure to provide the following information for the kids appearing in the photo – name(s), teacher, event/activity. That information will help us make sure we are including as many students as possible.

The yearbook staff will review all photos and determine final yearbook content. We cannot guarantee that all submissions will be used in the book.
