About

Welcome!

Who are we and what do we do? Everything we can friends. From building the school playground (zipline, yes please), to raising money to get groceries to our families that need them, planting the garden, staying connected (and getting our quarantined bodies moving) with zoom dances. We love our community and work to do everything we can to make our school the best it can be and give our kids great experiences. We're Friends of Roxhill Elementary, also known as FORE, your school PTO and a 501c3 organization. Come join us! All are welcome and interpretation services are available. 

2022-2023 Board Members:

What we've done in 2021/2022:

Friends of Roxhill Elementary raises funds to support our school, community, and students in a variety of ways. Thank you to our generous donors for making all of this possible in the 2021-2022 school year:

  • ~$15,000 in holiday and household support for Roxhill families.

  • ~$5,000 in direct support to teachers, used on classroom supplies and field trips.

  • ~$4,000 on COVID-19 supplies such as two-way radios and masks for students and teachers.

  • Volunteer-led work parties and classes in the Roxhill Learning Garden.

  • Yearbooks for all students and staff.

  • Roxhill T-shirts for all students and staff.

  • Backpacks for each 5th grader and a graduation party at Lincoln Park.

  • The down payment on a 3 night field trip to NatureBridge for next year’s 5th graders.

  • Teacher appreciation throughout the year: back-to-school breakfast, pizza parties, and RealFine coffee.

  • Interpretation services at monthly Community Meetings.

  • An awesome dance party with DJ Hero.

We are planning even more events and enrichment opportunities for students in 2022-2023. We can do these things through generous donations from Roxhill’s parents, friends, and community. Thank you!
