Partnership with Round Hill Elementary School

Sep 5, 2019

With a new school year starting, we are continuing our partnership with Round Hill elementary school through Congregations in Action Williamson Road churches: Trinity Lutheran, Bethany Christian, Williamson Road Church of the Brethren, Oakland Baptist Church, St. James Episcopal Church, and Huntington Court United Methodist.

Here is how we will be involved:

  • Contribute school supplies of pencils, single subject wide rule spiral notebooks, composition books, to the box labeled for this in the Parish Hall.
  • Volunteer to be a student tutor, reading buddy, lunch buddy or be an extra pair of hands and heart in the classrooms and the office, building relationships with the children and staff of Round Hill.   Volunteer applications are available from the Rector or Avis Aheron; if you have filled out an application to volunteer in a previous year, these have been approved and your name has been given to the new Assistant Principle, Mrs. Stacie Wright.
  • We will continue to provide holiday snack packs for about 60 children.   As you may remember, this allows children on free breakfast and lunch at school to take snacks home over the holiday to supplement what is available to them at their houses. More information will be available about what contributions are needed during the year.

Our partnership with Round Hill is all about building relationships with the students, faculty, and staff, to be a blessing there, and to receive a blessing ourselves.  It is a natural neighborhood alliance for our faith community to support our local school of over 600 students plus teachers and staff.  When strangers become our friends, lives are enriched and God’s kingdom is made real.
