The Owen J. Roberts Education Foundation will engage all members of the community to support educational innovation and the mission of the Owen J. Roberts School District.
The Foundation, in collaboration with our community, will support the Owen J. Roberts School District to champion superior performance, distinctive impact, and lasting endurance to inspire each student for success today and greatness tomorrow.
Below are the current list of ways we are currently supporting the Owen J. Roberts School District.
Through community support and involvement, the OJREF works to enhance the Owen J. Roberts School District’s potential to become a world class school district by helping to bring innovative programs to the classroom that will afford students the skills and tools necessary to compete in the ever-changing, fast paced global environment.
Family Farm Fest Fundraiser is an opportunity for everyone in the district to welcome fall at the Olszanowski Farm while supporting the foundation. Hay rides, a corn maze, bon fires, food and an auction and raffle make this an event that includes something for everyone.
