Hello Roxhill Stars! We have finished our first month back to school- anyone feeling like they’ve hit their groove yet? My 1st grader hasn’t been sent to school in his pajamas once, so I’m feeling like a rock star. I asked him how the first month of school has been, he said “Good!” Judging by the smiles on the kids’ faces at pick-up time, I’m guessing his feeling is shared.
This is the inaugural year for Friends of Roxhill, which is very exciting. We are a non-profit whose goal is to support Roxhill Elementary in whatever way it needs and it is for anyone who wants to jump in and help (yes, that means YOU!)! In the following year we have some exciting things planned: popcorn and bake sales, supporting cultural events, providing Parent Nites Out (woo hoo!), Dine Out Nites and much much more!
Let me share some really exciting news with you on behalf of the Friends of Roxhill… our grant to build our new playground at the E.C. Hughes building was completed and submitted!!! (If you see Jenny Rose around the school give her a pat on the back, she worked really hard on it!). That means we’re waiting for approval, and if that comes thru, we will get to start making the dream a reality (work time!) and turn that concrete into a great place for our kids to play next year and on into the future!
Want to be a part of all the excitement? Here’s how:
FRIENDS OF ROXHILL’S NEXT MEETING
IN THE LIBRARY
Don’t worry, if you can’t make the meeting, you can catch up on the notes on the Roxhill website. And if you want to lend a hand (we need all sorts of skills!), please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Julian.
Until, next time, keep shining, Stars!
