ROUNDTOWN FRIENDS GIVING BACK
Some of our third grade friends have been working on some projects to help our community. Please read their messages below to see how you can help!
A Flag Football game is being planned by third graders at Roundtown Elementary School. The game will benefit the Carter N. Bowman Foundation that provides opportunities for kids with cancer to have stress-free fun events to help them through their treatments.
The event is being held on Saturday, April 26, at 3:00 pm at Central High School. Everyone is welcome. We hope you will join us and support this very worthy cause. The gates will open at 2:15 pm with the game starting at 3:00.
Tickets are free for kids 3 and under. Kids aged 4-12 cost $1.00. All other tickets are $3.00. We will take any additional donations and will be having a raffle.
If you have any questions, please contact Garrison, Nathaniel, Dayton, Brett, Conner, or Josh. They can be reached at
We are a group of third graders who want to get donations for the SPCA. We want to
help the animals because we think they should be treated like people. They should be treated kindly, treated like family, and should also feel loved. When they are in the SPCA they are not in a home. They don't have a family that's loving and caring for them. We cannot get them out of the shelter, but we can help SPCA so they have enough supplies to take care of them until they get a home.
We are collecting the items below from April 21st through May 2nd at Roundtown. Please help us!
Small Treat Bags For Dogs
Large Milk Bones
Small/Medium Milk Bones
Canned Cat Food
Cat Soft Treats Small Bags
Wal-Mart Gift Cards
