The Rancho Santa Fe Education Foundation will host its annual Newcomers’ Welcome Pool Parties and Welcome Kindergarten Party for new families to the Rancho Santa Fe School District. These events are an opportunity to meet others and make new friends prior to the first day of school.

Kindergarten families will be able to meet their teachers at the Welcome Kinder Event.

The pool parties for 1st through 8th grades are hosted at private residences in Rancho Santa Fe. Refreshments are provided at all events.

Event costs are underwritten by donations from the Foundation’s generous Community Partners.

All families that are registered at R. Roger Rowe School will receive invitations by email for events.
