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 homeschooled. All 20+ of the students were provided with
at least one present at Christmas time, provided by the people of Foothills.
The gifts were met with gratitude and helped the students enjoy the holiday.
The La Roca students wish to thank Foothills for thinking of them during the Christmas Season .
