Here’s what’s happening – right now and in the hours ahead – from the WSB inbox and Event Calendar:

ROXHILL ELEMENTARY JOG-A-THON: Your support welcome! Happening today:

Today, Roxhill Elementary School will host our Annual Jog‐A‐Thon.  The Jog-A-Thon is a fundraiser where students will raise money partly to support the 5th grade overnight outdoor learning field trip to Nature Bridge. This fundraiser is a huge help to offset the cost of the trip for 5th graders, staff, and chaperones to attend, including transportation costs, meals, and other expenses. During this 4-night stay, students engage in various outdoor learning activities that build students’ self-confidence, team building skills and knowledge of physical sciences. It has been a tradition for many years that each 5th grade class attends an outdoor learning education overnight field trip. It is the experience of a lifetime!

In addition to supporting the 5th grade outdoor field trip, money raised may go toward funding other school field trips. If you would like to donate to our fundraising effort, click the link.
