A La Roca Update
Do you ever wonder what happened to the
students who attended the La Roca School? The older students walk, or
find other means, to attend other public or private schools. Most of
the younger students unfortunately have not been able to attend a new
school due to transportation issues. Many of them are home schooled. All
20+ of the students were provided with
at least one present at Christmas Time, provided by the people of Foothills.
The presents were met with great enthusiasm and helped them enjoy the holiday.
The La Roca students wish to thank Foothills for thinking of them during the Christmas Season .
