Halloween Dance Party & Fundraiser

Community Roots Co-op presents our first ever Monster Mash: Kids Halloween dance party and costume contest! 

Kids of all ages are invited to come shake and groove to the funkiest tunes, parade their fabulous costumes, make a witch or wizard wand, drink 'poison apple juice' and snack on creepy crawlers. 

Grown ups of all ages are invited to come in costume (or not) and sip our signature 'Zombie Mom Apocalypse' beverage while your children (and you) dance.

Admission to Mash is: $10 per person or $30 for a family of 4 ($5 per person after that). Snacks, drink and DJ included!

Dinner (with vegan and gluten-free options) will be available for additional purchase. 

This dance party is a fundraiser for the Community Roots Co-op Scholarship Fund. We have a strong commitment to removing barriers to access. This year we have given about $25,000 in scholarships, primarily to families of color. Our fundraising efforts are essential to keeping Community Roots open as an option for families in Charlottesville. Thank you for your support!

Welcoming Autumn

Welcome to the Community Roots Co-op Blog!

Here’s we’ll post an inside look at our experiences and connections as a group as well as updates about our community events and fundraisers.

Thank you for supporting our mission and following the journey! 

During the start of the current co-op year, we’ve had a number of exceptional learning opportunities. Our children have learned about their name origins, crafted scratch-made apple pies, and enjoyed delving into mindfulness and meditation. We continue our mission of creating a diverse and uplifting community in which each child can thrive.

Respect for nature and child-led exploration are key parts of our program.
