But who is going to let the rain stop us from walking (with our umbrellas) to school today for National Bike/Walk to School Day?
National Walk/Bike to School Day:
So today isn't the perfect day to walk or ride the bikes to school...GET YOUR UMBRELLAS OUT! While we recognize not everyone will be able to walk or bike, we would love to see as many families support this initiative. Not only is walking or biking healthy for our physical well-being, it is also good for our environment! Demonstrate our "caring" attribute, by walking or biking today! The photo represents LAST YEARS turnout -- CAN WE ADD MORE BIKES THIS YEAR, despite the rain??
Just 11 days left to get your discounted tickets for the ROXARTS Auction & Benefit!! It will be a great time! Come in cocktail attire, dressed for the 1920's or just how you wish. All are welcome, so invite your friends, even if they don't attend ROX. Buy tickets at roxarts.org
Weather permitting, on Thursday after school, we will be outside on the lawn by the RoxEl media center to assist you in purchasing tickets and answer questions about the event. And, we'll have popsicles for the kids!
Just Write A Check Campaign:
While the 2014 Just Write A Check! Campaign formally ended on May 2 (for parents and families), the Campaign remains ongoing in the Roxboro neighborhood, and there is still time for you to give if you have not already!
The Campaign is well on its way to its $10,000 goal, but we cannot make it without your help. If you have not already given, please consider making a (100% tax deductible) donation to the campaign by either, writing a check to the Roxboro Elementary PTA or donating via PayPal at www.roxelpta.org/write-a-check-campaign.html.
Also, do not forget to continue to encourage your friends, neighbors and family to contribute. While the formal campaign wrapped up, the PTA can continue to accept contributions to be used towards playground enhancements and other projects supported by Just Write a Check!
Thank you to everyone who has supported the 2014 campaign!
Teacher Appreciation - Letters, notes of thanks:
Please remember to send in your child's letter or note of appreciation for his/her teachers on Friday. You can check with your room parent if you are not certain how best to support this week's celebration of our loving, caring, and determined teachers and staff! Today, the PTA will provide lunch for the teachers, along with some other goodies...
CHUH Parent Survey - Report Card redesign:
Please show how much you care about your child's performance in achievement by participating in the CHUH Report Card Survey. The Educational Services Team would like to receive feedback from families with students in grades K-5 about report cards at the elementary level. As we continue our transition to Ohio’s New Learning Standards, CHUH is revising our report card. Your input is invaluable in this process. Please follow the provided link to submit your ideas by May 12th. Thank you.
What better way to demonstrate your care for Roxboro Elementary??? There are several volunteer opportunities for everyone -- please check the PTA website if you are available to support any or all -- WE APPRECIATE ALL THE VOLUNTEERING THAT WILL TAKE PLACE THIS MONTH!
