Whole Kids Garden Grant

Roxhill Elementary has been awarded a Whole Kids Foundation’s $2000 Garden Grant!

Kids who grow veggies, eat veggies, so school gardens can make a big difference. Through our Garden Grant program, schools and non-profit organizations turn outdoor spaces into powerful hands-on learning gardens that connect kids with food, spark their curiosity and support classroom curriculum.

Whole Kids Foundation

The Garden Grant Program supports edible educational gardens located at a school, and provides a $2,000 monetary grant to support a new garden.

We’ve bean excited about this one, and it’s the outcome we were rooting for.


Mark your calendars for the Festival of Lights May 2nd!

Please join us for a night of celebrating one another at the Festival of Lights. There will be performances by Roxhill students and community members, a potluck dinner, a raffle and more! RSVP on Facebook here.

Performers needed! Would you or do you know someone who would like to perform? Please contact our Parent Leader, Maty Villeda, at matilde.villeda@gmail.com or Jacqui Betz at jabetz@seattleschools.org to reserve a spot.

The Festival of Lights works best when we all bring something to share. If you are able to bring something and need a suggestion, here are a few (remember vegetarian and halal options are really helpful):

• Kindergarten – Main dish (e.g. meats, pastas, soups, tamales, etc.)
• 1st Grade – Main dish (e.g. meats, pastas, soups, tamales, etc.)
• 2nd Grade – Side dish (e.g. rice and beans, vegetables, fresh rolls, lumpia, etc.)
• 3rd Grade – Salad (e.g. black bean, Caesar, garden, macaroni, potato, etc.)
• 4th Grade – Desserts and Fruits
• 5th Grade – Drinks (juice, horchata, Jamaica, natural water etc.)

Help Roxhill and our community reduce waste by bringing your own plate to eat on. For every plate you bring, you will receive an additional raffle ticket! Let’s model sustainable habits and be leaders for schools across the U.S.

If you are not able to bring your own plate, a compostable plate will be provided.
