Family Engagement initiative makes a difference at Roxboro Road Elementary

The Family Engagement initiative has been busy at Roxboro Road Elementary this Spring. Back in March, the school hosted the KIND Campaign from California and last month they helped deliver Easter basket donations. 

The KIND Campaign was featured during an assembly for fourth grade girls. The focus was girl-on-girl bullying. The founders spoke to students via Zoom and shared moving testimonials. The assembly also incorporated Kind Pledges, Kind Apologies, and Kind Cards. A documentary was also shown. Family Engagement Specialist Jessica Nabewaniec says it was a powerful assembly and they intend to continue the progress gained moving forward throughout the rest of the year.

On Thursday, April 6 Family Engagement members partnered with St. Margaret’s Church and The Gathering Place to deliver hams and Easter baskets to 27 families. Nabewaniec says Peter and MaryBeth Frantzis led the team that sponsored numerous donations and provided so much support to many of our families.

Great work!
