Friends of Roxhill Elementary, also known as FORE, is our school’s parent/teacher organization (PTO). We are parents, community members and teachers who work together to support the education and enrichment of our multicultural public school.
From building the school playground, to raising money to get groceries to our families in need, to planning fun after-school events and growing vegetables in the school garden, 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.
Come join us! All are welcome and interpretation services are available.

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 2022-2023 school year:
~$10,000 in holiday and household support for Roxhill families.
~$5,000 in direct support to teachers, used on classroom supplies and field trips.
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.
Monthly park meetups at Roxhill Park.
The down payment on a 4 night field trip to NatureBridge for next year’s 5th graders.
Teacher appreciation throughout the year: staff support and supplies during the strike, pizza parties, and RealFine coffee.
Interpretation services at monthly Community Meetings.
A movie night, skate night and an awesome block party with DJ Hero.
School outings to see the Mariners and the Sounders.
We are planning even more events and enrichment opportunities for students in 2023-2024. We can do these things through generous donations from Roxhill’s parents, friends, and community. Thank you!
