Back-to-School Events!

Hello Roxbury Families! I hope this finds you all rested and healthy after a great summer break!  This email contains information for all of our back to school events, so please read it in its entirety! It contains several sign up opportunities.  

1) Roxbury Ice Cream Social - Wednesday August 11 - 6:30-8pm

We are so excited to welcome back our in-person Ice Cream Social! 

This year's ice cream social will be Wednesday, August 11, from 6:30-8pm at the playground area of Roxbury Elementary. 

All families are welcome. Students can meet their teachers and classmates and enjoy a treat! Students MAY drop school supplies to the hallway outside their classroom (or wait until Aug 17). The classrooms will be locked. Masks WILL BE REQUIRED when anyone enters the building per the district email sent August 4. 

The ice cream social will be held rain or shine, so if it is raining Wednesday evening, please bring umbrellas or ponchos.    

All of this wouldn’t be possible without volunteers, so if you are able, please sign up below to help with this amazing annual event!!/showSignUp/20f0e4fa8a722a02-roxbury5

2) August PTA Meeting - Tuesday, August 17 - 9am

Please join us for the first PTA meeting of the 2021-2022 school year in the Roxbury Cafeteria. Again, masks will be required for anyone entering the building. Since school will not have started yet, we will have babysitters available so bring any children who attend the meeting OUTSIDE to the playground to play while we conduct our meeting in the cafeteria.

3) New to District Welcome - Tuesday, August 17 - BY SIGN UP (INCLUDED BELOW) 10:15AM OR 11AM 

For any new families with children in grades 1-4, we welcome you to Roxbury Elementary School! We invite you to come and learn about our school and get an opportunity to tour the building. We will have two sessions the morning of August 17, following the PTA meeting.


Due to COVID-19 protocols, we ask that masks are worn by all and only one adult accompany our new Roxbury students. 

These sessions will be held in the Media Center (Library) at Roxbury Elementary School.

4) Meet the Teacher and School Supply Drop Off for GRADES 1-4 - Tuesday, August 17 - 1-2PM

Due to the current circumstances with the pandemic, we are asking that only Roxbury students and one parent or guardian attend this indoor opportunity even if supplies were not left during the ice cream social event. Thank you for your understanding! Again, anyone entering the building must be wearing a mask.  

5) Letters with teacher placement information will be mailed to students on Friday, August 6. 

6) Kindergarteners will bring their supplies, meet their teacher, and have orientation by invitation, which will be outlined in each kindergartener's individual placement letter. These appointments will be during the school day on Wednesday, August 18, and Thursday, August 19. Masks will be required for every parent and student entering the building. 

7) The first day of school for Grades 1-4 is Wednesday, August 18.  The first day of school for Kindergarteners is Friday, August 20.  

Thank you so much! We can't wait to see all of you at the ice cream social on Wednesday.
