RootEd Expands!

We are so excited to announce that we are broadening our partnership with Go Public! We will be working together to bring RootEd to all the districts in Bexar County. We cannot wait to start sharing the stories of their amazing schools!

What this means for our current districts is that we are building up our training system and they'll get an awesome refresher. We are also able to meet with Principals via zoom to chat about what's in store and what we do to boost enrollment with the help of RootEd Reps.

We love working with districts. Our RootEd Reps are the heart of our organization and are working with the schools to bring parents to campuses. We can't wait to see what happens in the near future!

RootEd out in the Community

Churchill Feeder Rep Meeting

Some of the Churchill high school RootEd Reps zoomed to plan the Future Football Games this fall. Instead of gathering for a football game (due to pandemic), we'd love to see the feeder schools picking a date to promote their high school. School colors, videos from high school principals, streaming football games...the ideas are endless!! There is so much we can do to grow the roots from elementary all the way to high school.

Churchill feeder Spirit Day is November 6th!

Clark vs. Johnson Spirit Day is December 3rd!
