What better way to teach your children about the true spirit of Thanksgiving than with service that benefits our immediate community? Mark your calendar for the Rosemary Hills PTA's Day of Giving on Saturday, Nov. 18 at 8 a.m! 

 

First, over the course of the next week, please send your child to school with Thanksgiving canned and dried goods that we will donate to families in our community who rely on these items to make their Thanksgiving memorable. Items of need include cornbread mix, instant potatoes, stuffing, gravy, soup, cooking oil, coffee, canned pumpkin, canned vegetables like green beans, cake mixes, dried fruit, and boxed sugar.

 

Day of Giving Events: Saturday, Nov. 18 beginning at 8 a.m.

On Saturday morning, Nov. 18 beginning at 8 a.m. we will have our annual Rhino Run! This wonderful event is a one-mile fun run around the school neighborhood for children ages 5-10. Entry fees for the run are $10/child, or $20/family. This year, all proceeds to the run will benefit A Wider Circle, an organization in Silver Spring that provides basic need items to individuals and families transitioning out of homelessness, fleeing domestic abuse or otherwise living without basic necessities. Register for the run here.

 

After your run, come into our school for our annual community boxes event. We will be sorting, packing, and decorating food boxes with all of the food you've donated over the course of the month. Each box will help these families make a complete Thanksgiving feast at home. Your children can head home from the event knowing they've made a meaningful contribution to their community this Thanksgiving.
