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.
