ROISD Education Foundation Overview

Message from the President

Dear friends,

In 2002, the Red Oak ISD Education Foundation embarked upon an amazing journey to enrich the educational experience of Red Oak ISD students by providing opportunities for innovative learning and increasing access to resources above and beyond the norm.  And now, 15 years later, that purpose still remains central to every effort made by our wonderful board of directors.  Thanks to the continuous focus and dedication of these community leaders, including the selfless leadership of Monica Ball, we begin 2017 keenly aware our role in the further enhancement of education in Red Oak.

In anticipation of a great future, we must certainly reflect upon the past.  Each endeavor of 2016 was rooted in a desire to positively impact the academic achievement of as many students as possible.  In fact, over $$67,238.87 was awarded in classroom grants, representing 7 of our 8 campuses.  The foundation facilitated the funding of dual credit scholarships for ROHS students in the amount of $7,056.67.  Additionally, several outside grants were received including a $35,000 grant from the Dart Foundation for elementary STEM labs. 

Beyond our annual fundraising efforts, we’ve found it essential to support those who have recently chosen to use their individual talents and abilities to educate our children.  Instructors new to education in the district were awarded teacher grants to jumpstart their classroom initiatives.  These mini grants were received with such appreciation and certainly helped these young educators begin the year knowing the Red Oak ISD Education Foundation is their partner and one of their biggest fans.  We look forward to continuing this program in some fashion for years to come.

None of these grand achievements would be possible without the generous support of our donors.  We appreciate each and every contribution, from corporate project funding and our phenomenal employee partner program to friendships with local business owners and gifting from parents.  Together we’re better!

We look forward to a wonderful year of celebration in 2017 and will stretch even further to continue that forward-thinking mission birthed 15 years ago.  Won’t you join us?
