Message from Principal Lorow

Hello Roxhill Families,


I hope this newsletter finds you all well. We continue to focus on learning and building community here at school. I hope to see many of you at the Skate night next week.


A group of 4th graders from Ms. Turner’s classroom represented Roxhill Elementary School at the Regional Global Reading Challenge on March 2nd. The students did a fabulous job and represented us all very well. The team ended up in 2nd place for the region! Thank you 4th graders! We are proud of you!


March is Women’s History Month and our first grade students will be presenting at a school wide assembly on Friday, March 17th. First grade families look for more information about this assembly to come home from the teachers.


Ramadan begins this month on March 22nd. Happy Ramadan to our Muslim families!


Be well!

Ms. Lorow

Share the link with your friends, neighbors, co-workers and relatives across the country. They have a variety of plants for every climate.

Ask people to enter your student’s name in the field, “Give Credit For This Sale To” when they check out. The student with the most sales will get to pick any item from the Roxhill School Spirit Store.
