roan forest jingles to johnson

Roan Forest Elementary School hosted a school-wide Jingle Bell Walk to Johnson High School on Friday, Dec. 21. This event comprised all students in grades K-5, along with faculty, staff and parents.

The purpose of the walk is to promote physical fitness over the Winter Break and show school spirit, as most of the students are future Johnson Jaguars. Roan Forest Trailblazers walked across the Johnson track and through the halls of Johnson HS spreading holiday cheer with their jingle bells, while sporting a crown or sign indicating their graduating class, such as Class of 2024, 2025, and so on.

As the Roan Forest Trailblazers approached Johnson, they were greeted with high-fives from the Jaguar mascot and high school administration. Once inside the building, the hallways were lined with high school students and faculty greeting the elementary kids. In return, Roan Forest students were holding signs of encouragement, i.e. “JHS #1” and “Go Jags,” as they paraded through the halls.

“I would like to give a special thanks to Mr. Mehlbrech, as well as the faculty and students of Johnson High School for making our students feel so welcome! It is great for our Roan Forest community to see where they are headed. This type of event helps our families develop familiarity and pride now in their high school,” said Dr. Melissa Alcala, Roan Forest principal.
