School Spirit Events & Fundraising 2016/2017 Plans

Thanks to all who participated in our winter fundraisers. It’s no surprise that Roden parents stepped up to help organize, volunteer and participate in BIG ways! Not only did we raise funds for our school, but we built school spirit and were able to get out and meet new people along the way. Thank you for making this happen!

Still Needed
Yes, we still need one or two volunteers to make these events happen:
  1. March Movie Night – we need someone to take the lead organizing food and volunteers. Training provided!
  2. Fun Fair – a couple leads for different areas. See details in the Fun Fair section.
  3. Spring Concert Bake Sale Coordinator – organize the treats and help set up and run the bake sale table.
