22 Area Projects Across ROISD & Red Oak Community

(RED OAK, TX) — As part of an effort to develop service opportunities for students, staff, and even the community, Red Oak ISD is hosting the 2nd annual fall ROISD Comm-Unity Service Day on Monday, November 8 from 12-3 p.m. with twenty-two (22) area projects available across the district and community. It is a non-instructional day so students do not have school and staff are participating in professional development that morning, but may participate if their afternoon is open.

“Red Oak ISD is committed to developing the whole child, and part of that development is community service and the 4th Talon – We Before Me,” stated ROISD Superintendent Brenda Sanford. “When children and adults are invested in our community through the gift of time and effort, the pride in your district and community multiplies! We are blessed by the amazing support of our community and want to give back!”

Project development took place with input from campus principals, city leaders, and department heads focusing on outdoor and indoor projects this year. Campus clean-up and beautification projects dominate the district events along with an area park project.

The twenty-two current projects allow over 200 volunteers to donate their time and efforts for some campus and park cleaning.

“Campus beautification has an impact on student learning! Students and staff are excited about coming to school when it is a place they want to be, and that includes a warm, inviting, and clean facility,” added Sanford. “I want to thank our volunteers in advance for their gracious service. This year is all about reuniting and refocusing on what it means to be a Hawk and part of the Red Oak community. We know it takes all of us to make our schools and neighborhoods better and when we unite as Hawks we can make that happen.”
